Nothing beats a cocktail with fantastic views across sun-drenched white sand and out to sea with some chilled beats playing in the background. Beach bars are the place where you can sit and watch the world go by when you are ready for a break from sunbathing.
In the evenings they transform into trendy places to hang out and venues to enjoy stunning meals while listening to the sound of the waves. Some even have resident DJs to change the tempo.
Finding the ones with the best mix of stunning location, cool vibe and innovative drinks can take an entire trip. Why not try these out on your next holiday on the island of Majorca?
Las Terrazas beach club, Illetes
In the evenings this beach bar resembles a fine dining restaurant, but remarkably during the day it is the perfect place to kick back and relax. With views down to a little sandy beach and small rocky cove, Las Terrazas offers a taste of paradise.
The cocktail menu is exhaustive so it is easy to come back day after day to this bar and try something new each time, while marvelling at the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean stretching out in front of you.
Open from 9am right through until midnight, the mood changes throughout the day as sophistication builds for the evening. At lunch time you can share a classic paella with friends or enjoy a light bite to go with those cocktails.
Chi Lounge, Son Matias Beach
Those visiting Chi Lounge often bring their own boats to Son Matias Beach, echoing its propensity for luxury and style. Visitors can even enjoy their champagne without disembarking their yacht as waiters will bring it to you.
If you choose that option then you risk missing out on the carefully selected tunes and finely cultivated ambience of the bar itself. While sipping your bubbly you can gaze out across the whole of the Palma Nova Bay and the mountains that lie beyond, creating a stunning contrast to the azure sea.
The food served in the Chi Lounge is all inspired by the orient with subtle flavours tasting all the more sublime in this beautiful location.
Nassau Beach Club, Portixol
If you don’t like to leave the beach for a second then the Nassau Beach Club is for you as the tables are set up right on the sand. Despite its proximity to Palma it has a relaxed vibe and the views back to the bay are fabulous.
As the sun goes down behind the city and the lights start to twinkle this is a particularly magical sight. Prior to this you can enjoy the white sandy beach and even have your drinks brought to you on your sun lounger.
Lounge and deep house music are the specialities here, although there is a distinct change in the beats between the daylight hours and the evening.
During the day the fresh salads on offer are tempting although there are plenty of other options too. The Nassau Beach Club does not confine itself to one type of cuisine but instead includes dishes from Asia and the Mediterranean as well as sushi, fresh fish and a wide selection of meat.
