Enchanting sunsets in the Balearics: the most beautiful places to admire them

 

Towel on the sand, cocktails and sunset with sea view: in the Balearics it is not a holiday if, a day spent at the beach, does not end with a drink in front of the sun that disappears below the horizon line. In the islands of the Spanish archipelago, from Ibiza to Formentera, from Menorca to Mallorca, the vantage points from which to admire the legendary “puestas de sol” are special contexts, between paradisiac coves and promontories overlooking an always crystalline water that is tinged with times of blue, others of emerald green.

Among the views not to be missed to witness the spectacle of a fiery sky above the sea, in Majorca, in the largest island of the archipelago, there is Cap de Formentor, a narrow peninsula 12 kilometers long and three meters wide, located at north in the municipality of Pollença. To reach what is considered a “natural sanctuary”, one crosses the Sierra de Tramontana, between steep cliffs and vertiginous hairpin bends. But the road, very scenic, offers incredible landscapes. From the lighthouse, the sunset is exciting.
Another privileged position to be conquered, to observe the sun that plunges into the water until it disappears is Banyalbufar (which in Arabic means “built near the sea”). The small town of the Sierra de Tramontana, located between the municipalities of Estellencs, Esporles and Valldemossa, is characterized by the “marjades”. Or the hills terraces that, in the past, were used for the cultivation of grapes.

Today, these natural sea view offers a special taste sunset. In Menorca, the Balearic island declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the aperitif at twilight is at the Puerto de Ciutadella, comfortably seated in one of the small bars along the ancient defensive walls of the city center. Or, moving further north, to Cap de Cavalleria, the unmissable vantage point for romantic couples looking for privacy and privacy.

If in Ibiza the sunset bar is synonymous with “Café del Mar”, in the homeland of nightlife there are several places worth reaching for the “puesta de sol”. Like Playa Benirras: in this characteristic bay, the setting is magical and vibrant, because as the sun gradually disappears, the agitated rhythm of the drums played by the local hippy community grows.

For those looking for a place far from the crowds, there is Punta Galera, a natural pearl where you sit on the rocks bathed by the sea and wait for the sunset to give you emotions. Arriving on the “white isla”, the glamorous and elegant Formentera, the real “must” not to be missed is Cala Saona. The little bay dotted with lively kiosks and restaurants, is the only one to have – along with Illetes – the sandy beach. Finally, for a more picturesque and uncontaminated scenery, there is the lighthouse of Cap de Barbaria: the “puestas de sol” admired by this natural terrace on a sea overgrown by seagulls, have an extra gear.

Bridge April 25 2018 to the sea: the best destinations

 

Bridge 25 aprile 2018 to the sea: the best destinations to enjoy an early summer and a few days of relaxation and fun.

This year April 25, 2018 falls on Wednesday and for this reason lends itself to a double “interpretation”: a long bridge that starts from Saturday, April 21 or even a real week of vacation that will also incorporate the bridge of the first May. Whatever your choice there are seaside places where you will feel like you are already in the summer and where you can really switch off and regenerate completely.

Going on the occasion of the April 25th Bridge to the Canaries could allow you to enjoy a summer advance. It is an archipelago located not far from the coasts of Morocco and, apart from the months of January and February, ensures a mild climate throughout the year. The main islands to which you could turn your attention are Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote and Furteventura. Ideal for those who love nature rather wild, the archipelago is also home to the Teide volcano and is much appreciated by those who dive and love to observe beautiful backdrops. Among the most beautiful beaches we recommend Maspalomas, Playa del Ingles, Playa de San Agustin and Playa de Amadores on the Gran Canaria island; Corralejo and Morro Jable in Fuerteventura; Las Teresitas in Santa Cruz and Las Vistas in Arona in Tenerife.

The Balearic Islands include Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera and visiting them in this period will allow you to discover aspects of these places that in summer, with the incredible crowds of tourists, will make it impossible to savor. In addition to the beautiful beaches and immersion in nature you can take advantage of the tranquility that you will find to explore far and wide and go for example to discover the path that runs on the Sierra de Tramuntana and long since been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Or you can visit the Mirò Museum in Palma, remote and hidden monasteries, the most beautiful gullies in the Mediterranean or fascinating places like the Gothic quarter of Palma de Mallorca. Ideal for those who enjoy hiking, biking or even on horseback if you look for the best beaches we recommend Playa de Formentor and Cala des Moro in Mallorca and Ses Illetes in Forrmentera.

An island often underestimated and not far from Italy is without a doubt Malta. In April it will welcome you with an average temperature of about 20 degrees and this is considered the ideal month to visit and do excursions on the island. Malta offers incredible natural beauties such as natural caves, inlets and stacks. It also has crystal clear waters and beautiful beaches. Among the best we mention Ghadira Bay in the Bay of Mellieha, Imgiebah, Ghajn Tuffieha and the Golden Bay, ideal for those who love the tranquility and the wildest and most unspoiled nature. Malta also offers the opportunity to make beautiful hiking or mountain biking tours and the opportunity to visit three UNESCO World Heritage sites: Valletta, the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum and the megalithic temples.

The first three proposals dealt with three places rather close to us. For those who want to undertake a journey a bit ‘longer and more challenging, we point out that among the ideal destinations for the bridge of April 25, 2018 there is for example Egypt and in particular the town of Hurghada. In April it will also be accessible with flights and low cost offers and will allow you to spend your vacation days in an already summery climate, but without the heat and humidity of the months of July and August. If you want to go even farther you may choose to go to Oman, to the Arabian Peninsula, to the Caribbean by choosing for example Turks & Caicos, or to the Philippine archipelago in South East Asia.

Also part of the Balearic archipelago is the smaller island of Cabrera, which houses the homonymous natural park, and some islets. The capital of the Balearic Islands is Palma de Mallorca, while the official languages ​​are both Catalan and Spanish. Also called the islands of eternal spring for their mild climate throughout the year, the Balearics are one of the most popular destinations in Spain and beyond. Their beaches are famous all over the world but, despite this, it is still possible to find pristine and heavenly beaches, especially in Menorca and Formentera.

Ibiza has bus lines that reach all the locations on the island. In general, especially in Menorca and Ibiza it is preferable to rent a car to have the freedom to reach even the most hidden coves.

In Formentera you just need to rent a motorbike or a bicycle because the distances are short.

The Balearic Islands are called the “islands of eternal spring” because they enjoy a mild and sunny climate practically throughout the year (it is said that sunny days are around 300 a year!).
