Whether for breakfast with sea views, for a cool drink at sunset, for a snack after a swim or a romantic candlelight dinner – Mallorca’s coast and beaches offer wonderful beach clubs. Here we present you our favourites:
This is the place to meet at Es Trenc in Ses Covetes: The Bar Esperanza is situated not quite, but almost on Mallorca’s most beautiful and untouched natural beach in the south of the island.
The Bar Esperanza is really more of a beach restaurant but has been designed by the owner Clemens Komossa in a very white ‘chill-out’ style with lots of wood, giving the impression of being right on the beach particularly as everything is open. It could be on the Caribbean as a strip of turquoise-blue can still be seen. The versatile cross-over dishes offered with Thai food, cevice, superb salads and crispy potatoe wedges is superb, as is the excellent wine list. Everything here is just right, including the music.
Mhares Sea Club
Like a bird’s nest the Mhares Sea Club nestles on the steep coast near Cala Blava where around 40 years ago one of the island’s first beach clubs, the famous Delta, was opened. Although there is not really a beach, there is a path which leads to exciting rocky coves where sandstone used to be quarried and natural swimming pools have formed.
The new club was extensively renovated a few years ago and is now very elegant with Balinese sun loungers and wide chairs, a large pool and very good food. Here you could sit forever, chill out and simply look: The views of nothing but the Mediterranean and Palma’s coast in the distance is like from a cruise ship, and it is impossible to get enough of the spectacular sunsets.
Totally ‘in’, not only for the beach volleyball players on the Platja de na Nadala in Palmanova. Super sea views and excellent pasta, then the two owners are true Italians who also produce fish dishes perfectly prepared. Their cocktails are also highly praised, as is their sangria. Perfect for a candlelight dinner, made even more romantic by the beautiful pink Bougainvillea growing on the whitewashed chiringuito where a DJ provides an accompanying musical background on mild summer evenings. And whilst drinking a morning cafe con leche it is fun to watch the volleyball games.
This might be the most exclusive ‘place to be’ at the 12 Km long beach of Playa de Muro. The lounge bar is located directly at the sandy beach and offers an elegant and modern interior, as well as chic chill out areas. Come for lunch and taste the delicious homemade spanish tapas with a modern twist, created by the michelin Star awarded chef Andreu Ginesta. The place is also perfect if you just want to realx and enjoy some tasty cocktail creations, with a view over one of the islands most beautiful beaches.
A wild beach with a beach bar just as wild although El Sol, at the end of the long, untouched beach of Son Serra de Marina, is more a beach restaurant, and legendary with a certain hippy flair, amplified by the cool kitesurfer p although El Sol, at the end of the long, untouched beach of Son Sierra de Marina, is more a beach restaurant, and legendary with a certain hippy flair, amplified by the cool kitesurfer pitting their skills against the wind and waves on the windy north coast.
The beach restaurant El Sol on the sandy beach Son Serra de Marina in the northeast, has a legendary reputation in Mallorca. Whether feshly caught fish, a lovingly prepared salad, Asian-inspired dishes or just a good steak – it excellent, the service is attentive, and the lilac-coloured sofas are com. Every Saturday and Tuesday there is live music from around 18:00 – a place which somehow reminds you of Ibiza.
The Puro beach clubs are a cult, and Mallorca has two of them: In Palma, on a headland near Can Pastilla and on the Illetes beach. On a circular terrace on the sea, where the Virtual used to be, the new Puro Beach opened last year. The ‘Puro Experience’ is a kind of philosophie. Everything is hip, cool and white. The design is elegant, minimalist and very stylish and even the staff is dressed only in white. The food is inspired by aromas and colours from different countries and is fresh and healthy.The motto is ‘see and be seen’ and illustrious guests enjoy the Puro Beach cocktail creations, or just relax with a wellness-massage on one of the soft Balinese 4-poster beds accompanied by the sound of the sea.
El Chiringuito Camp de Mar
This beach bar on a little island in front of Camp de Mar is legendary. A long wooden pier leads across the water to the restaurant Illeta where the food and the service might not allways be in perfect order, but the fantastic all-round sea views compensates for everything.
The location of the Illeta restaurant in Camp de Mar is just spectacular. Most visitors love this place because of it´s wonderful sea view.
Usually the typical Spanish dishes taste very good and where, after all, can you enjoy a paella or tapas in the middle of the sea? Otherwise it is a great place to relax with a drink – protected from the sun under a raffia roof with a coffee or a beer, lean back and all is well.
Chiringuito Cap Falcó Beach
A long stone staircase leads down to a small, cool beach between Magaluf and Sol de Mallorca. The beach bar is just as cool with a slight flower-power flair. The small but fine menu offers snacks such as tasty baguettes, hamburgers, fish and grilled kebabs which are very good. Enjoy your meal, sitting with your feet in the sand soaking up the views over the fine yellow sand as far as the azur-blue sea. Enjoying pleasant chill-out or Reggae music accompanied by a glass of cava creates a real holiday feeling. The ambiente here is so enchanting that from time to time weddings are celebrated here.
Nikki Beach means glamour although it is located in the middle of Magaluf – or on Calvia Beach as the bay is now called. A spectacular location – the large complex, right on the beach, offers a first-class restaurant, a cabana bar, an outside bar and a lifestyle-boutique with selected branded products.
Niki Beach is right on the western end of Magaluf Bay. Especially at the weekend a popular destination for yacht owners who want to party.
Nikki Beach is the ‘place to be’ and has a high luxury factor and those reclining on the extra-wide sun loungers always have plenty to see. Famous DJ’s perform here and the island high-society comes to the popular parties.
Bar Cala Torta
This bar, situated on one of the last untouched beaches near Arta in the north-east is plain and simple, yellow and blue wooden hut with a few benches and long tables at the water’s edge.. It serves an incomparable selection of fish, the paradilla, without a doubt the best and freshest (not necessarily the cheapest) fish which swam in the sea only a short time before. Accompanied by a simple salad, a few slices of farmer’s bread and Mallorcan olives – heaven on earth! The view over the sea and the snow-white sand, normally not overcrowded, feels like paradise. This is what, for most of us, it would be like dining on a lonely Caribbean island.
