Mallorca is a perennial favorite with European holidaymakers, with its gorgeous scenery, crashing surf and golden sandy beaches. The majority of this island is relaxing, peaceful, and there is a surprising amount of architecturally striking Roman and Moorish ruins to be seen. In such a chilled-out holiday destination, what more could you want than a bar
with stunning views? Here are some of the best.
Bar, Restaurant, Mediterranean, Spanish, $$$
Situated in an old finca (farmhouse) raised high up on the rocks, you’ll find stunning views over the sea and cala (cove) from the terrace. Aside from being an excellent spot to enjoy a drink and bask in the sun, Es Vergeret is also an outstanding restaurant, offering all manner of Spanish and Mallorcan classics. Their specialty is widely considered to be the delicious paella dishes made to order and the perfect size for sharing.

Gran Folies Beach Club
The location of Gran Folies Beach Club is outstanding: located at Cala Llamp, a gorgeous cove in the west of Mallorca, this popular spot is a classy beachfront bar restaurant. If you’re planning a visit around a mealtime, particularly lunch, try and book ahead as it can get very busy. However, the crowd doesn’t take away from the ambience, and the friendly staff remain as such, even when there are several large groups present. Treat yourself to a cocktail and maybe even a massage or a dip in the pool.

Mood Beach Bar
Mood Beach Bar in southern Mallorca is one of the top recommended beachfront bar-restaurants on the island, and it’s easy to see why. The panoramic views across Palma bay are spectacular, and with both indoor and outdoor facilities you can either soak up the sun or enjoy some champagne on the terrace. If you go in winter, they have cozy candlelit lounge and bar options with great low season offers to take advantage of. For those staying in the Calviá district, there are taxi fare refunds against bar drinks. Reservations are recommended.

Described as a lifestyle concept, Purobeach is not your typical beachfront hangout. Run by a Swedish entrepreneur, this high concept design has featured in several glossy fashion magazines, which explains its rich and fashionable clientele. Choose from the terrace, pool, lounge, and bar options and indulge in some pampering, with spa treatments or yoga. The views over Palma Bay are breathtaking. We recommend checking out Purobeach on a Sunday; come by early for the brunch menu, and laze around into the evening when DJs set the mood for the evening vibe.
