Magical Sunsets: Mallorca’s most breathtaking viewpoints.
Mallorca, the pearl of the Mediterranean, is known for its natural beauty and spectacular coastline. One of the most magical moments you can experience on this Balearic island is the sunset. The sky is tinged with warm colours and the sun sinks into the horizon, creating a breathtaking spectacle.
If you are looking for the perfect places to enjoy a sunset in Mallorca, at Posada Terra Santa we will guide you through the most impressive viewpoints so that you can experience unforgettable moments on this island paradise.
Sa Foradada is a natural viewpoint that offers a spectacular panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea. It is located on the west coast of Mallorca, near the town of Deià. What makes this place even more special is its iconic rock formation with a hole in the middle, which gives the viewpoint its name (Foradada means “pierced” in Mallorcan). The most magical moment is when the sun sets just behind the rock, creating a breathtaking image. This is a very popular spot, so arrive early to secure a good spot.
Ricardo Roca Viewpoint
If you are looking for a place to enjoy a sunset in Mallorca away from the crowds, the Mirador de Ricardo Roca is an excellent choice. Located on the east coast, on the Llevant peninsula, this viewpoint offers spectacular views of Mallorca’s unspoilt coastline. Here, you can enjoy a sunset in complete tranquillity while connecting with nature in its purest state.
Mirador des Colomer viewpoint
The Mirador des Colomer is located in the north of Mallorca, in the Tramuntana mountain range, a region declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. From this viewpoint, you will have a breathtaking view of the green valleys and the sea. It is especially beautiful at sunset, when the last rays of sunlight bathe the landscape in golden and pink tones. Bring a blanket and a picnic basket for an even more memorable experience.
Cap de Formentor
Cap de Formentor, on the northern tip of Mallorca, is a dream spot for sunset lovers. Here, you can enjoy panoramic views of the sea from breathtaking cliffs. The Cap de Formentor lighthouse, which towers above the cliffs, is an iconic landmark and an ideal place to watch the sunset. The road leading here is winding but offers spectacular scenery along the way.
On the west coast of Mallorca, in Banyalbufar, is the Torre del Verger, a defence tower built in the 17th century.
