Iconic places to watch the sunset in Mallorca

There are many opinions on where to find the best sunset in Mallorca: beaches, ports, viewpoints, and more.

Sa Calobra is one of the best beaches on the island and undoubtedly has one of the best sunsets in Mallorca. This beach, nestled between two mountain walls, creates an idyllic natural frame to witness the moment the sun sets over the sea. However, it’s advisable to arrive early, as it tends to get crowded. In addition to being a perfect spot for watching the sunset, the winding mountain road leading there is an adventure in itself!

Talaia d’Albercutx

A fantastic alternative to the iconic Formentor Lighthouse, Talaia d’Albercutx is an old tower located on the Formentor peninsula. Being much less known than the lighthouse, it is a great option for unobstructed views.

Faro de Formentor

We couldn’t leave out the Formentor Lighthouse from the best sunsets in Mallorca list, even though it is a very well-known location sought after by thousands of travellers visiting the island. It’s another one of those spots that combine sea and mountain views, accessed via a somewhat challenging road, with limited parking spaces, but it is well worth it despite these factors.

Es Trenc

This beach has everything for a perfect day, with its white sand stretching for 2 kilometres and crystal-clear water that constantly invites you for a dip. There are some beach bars, but you’ll also find many more untouched areas, so choose your favourite part of the beach and stay to enjoy a wonderful sunset.

Mirador de Es Pontas


The Es Pontas viewpoint in Mallorca is an ideal spot to watch the sunset due to its impressive natural arch over the sea, offering spectacular views of the sky and sea painted in the hues of the sunset. The combination of the sea breeze and the sound of the waves adds a relaxing and magical atmosphere, perfect for enjoying the tranquillity and natural beauty of the island at the end of the day.
