The epic 'end of the day' sun going down spots are along the western coast of the Menorcan island.

1. Los Delfines

Sunset of Los Delfines, Menorca, lighting up the horizon on the westernmost point. Los Delfines means 'The Dolphins' and is a small town and ideal spot to catch the descent of the twilight.

If you like to have a drink whilst watching, take a stroll to Sa Posta De Sol or head over to Apartmanentos Cabo de Baños. At the holiday apartments, you will find an open area to catch the sun going down.

You will find both located just off Av. Los Delfines which has good access by road if you want to jump into a taxi. Mobile coverage is good and everywhere just in case you want to go Facebook live with a sunset there.

2. Castell De Sant Nicolau at Ciutadella

Go to the Cliff next to the Castillo de Sant Nicolau, a 17th-century watchtower, which is a 10-minute walk from the middle of Ciutadella.

As you look out to the sea at the mouth of the port, you catch the full glory of the spectacular Menorca sunset.

3. Punta Nati Lighthouse

Punta Nati Lighthouse Sunset Menorca.JPG

On the North-West point of Menorca, you find located the attractive Punta Nati Lighthouse (Far de Punta Nati) which was built in 1911.


With the rugged desolate ground and the majestic colourful sky, this is a photographers delight and one of our favourites.

Take in the peace and quiet watching nature at its best at Punta Nati. Nothing obstructing your view around and the last rays of sun bouncing back off the lighthouse adds to the magic of the descending sun.


Make sure your footwear is good for this journey as the ground and rocks are hard and unforgiving.
