What better way to enjoy a relaxing drink than accompanying it with a stunning view? With Palma boasting its fair share of bars, as well as some wonderful scenery, it’s no surprise it has more than its share of places to unwind with your favourite tipple while soaking up some lovely vistas. Here’s a rundown of our favourite bars with views.
Few spots in the Mallorcan capital allow you to enjoy an evening drink with perfect views of both the iconic cathedral in one direction, and the sun sinking over the horizon in the other. But the terrace at the 49 Steps – part of the marina-front Arallo restaurant – is certainly one.
Set on Palma’s Moll Vell marina, Arallo offers an innovative menu of Galician cuisine infused with global influences, plus a fabulous rooftop sunset bar. […] Lunch at Arallo Restaurant in Palma marina
