A laid-back beach bar (or chiringuito as they’re called in Spain) can turn a good beach into a great one. More relaxed than a beach club and generally rough-and-rustic in style, once you find one you like, you’ll want to keep going back. Mallorca has no shortage of beaches, with plenty of them featuring fun, friendly, and informal bars, and we’ve narrowed it down to six of our favorites.
Not far from the popular resort of Cala D’Or, Cala Sa Nau is a small, sandy beach with clean, clear water at the end of a long, S-shaped rocky inlet. There are sunbeds for hire and the Cala Sa Nau chiringuito at the back of the beach has an excellent range of beers, wines and cocktails, as well as ice-creams, tapas, and more substantial paellas, and grilled meats and fish. It gets very busy in high season, but you can call ahead and book a table. The relaxed, fun atmosphere continues in the evenings when there are frequently DJs and live music.
