The Balearic's most spectacular sunsets

I’m so bored of sunsets that I hope I never have to see one again. Said no one ever.

Bagging a front-row seat to the day's most psychedelic event is undoubtedly a universal attraction and you'd be hard-pressed to find a more idyllic sunset-soaking spot as the Balearics.For their mind-bending mix of colours, mesmerizing patterns and undisputable beauty: here are the best places to admire the Balearics' most jaw-dropping sunsets.


Head to Ibiza's Benirràs beach to witness what is - hands down - one of the Mediterranean's best sunset experiences. Expect a sky-spectacle which features an ever-changing kaleidoscope of colours and to be swept up by a cheery, hippy vibe. Sundays are especially magical as this is when hundreds of bare-footed revellers gather to clap, whistle and take photos while boho drummers supply a fitting soundtrack to the intensifying drama.

Cala Conta is one of Ibiza's most rhapsodic beaches, and rightly so - its sand is powdery soft and the sea as clear as a glass of mineral water. As insta-worthy as Cala Conta's Caribbean-esque vistas may be, nothing is as arresting as the technicoloured drama which unfolds at sunset. Add Cala Conta's easy-going vibe and you have the perfect memory to linger over for when you're back to the grind.


There are few places in the Balearics as photogenic as Sa Foradada, the bizarre hole-in-the-wall rock formation near Mallorca's Deià. At sunset, head to the viewpoint where you can bask in the beauty of a fiery sunset while sipping a celebratory drink from the chiringuito-style bar. When the sun finally melts into the Mediterranean, and the show reaches its climax, it's accompanied by a rapturous applause.

Nab the best sunset seat in Palma at 49 Steps, a trendy bar located a hop, skip and a jump away from the capital's iconic cathedral. Here, captivating views of the superyachts in Moll Vell come with a laidback vibe and are enhanced by a blissful sea breeze. Seats are perfectly positioned for you to enjoy nature's daily blockbuster while skilled bartenders know how to mix drinks that take the edge off a languid Mallorca day.


If you think daytime views from Es Cap de Barbaria are what Instagrammers' dreams are made of, wait until you lay eyes on the Formentera lighthouse at sunset. A visit to the Balearics' southernmost point at the day's end includes a captivating seascape (next stop Algeria!), the sound of waves crashing against the cliffs below and skies that alternate between cobalt blue, hot pink and burnt orange.

What better way to end a sunny afternoon on Cala Saona's powder-soft sand, than by watching the sun sink into the island's luminous waters? You can watch Cala Saona'sriot of colour from the beach, while bobbing gently in a kayak, or from the shack on stilts with a mojito in hand. But be warned, the shack's concoctions are dangerously good, so don't blame us if one Mojito turns into five.
