The magical island of Mallorca has long drawn tourists to this charming island that lies in the Mediterranean Sea and lures travellers from far and wide to its sandy and beautiful beaches. Mallorca, also spelt Majorca, has long been considered one of the best places in the Mediterranean to enjoy the pristine waters that surround the island.
And like its neighbour, Ibiza, it has a party reputation to uphold. In fact, you’ll find some of the best beach clubs in Mallorca just outside the capital, Palma.

The beach clubs in Mallorca have transformed over the years and instead of high-octane parties now resemble a more relaxed approach to fine dining and letting customers enjoy a holistic approach when it comes to 21st-century beach clubs.
You’ll find spas, gourmet restaurants and decor that is straight out of Bali. That’s not to say it’s all serenity and yoga retreats, you’ll still find beach clubs that are known for their champagne parties and world-famous DJs.
Palma Beach Clubs

Assaona is hands down the best beach club in Palma not only for its incredible food but also for its fantastic location, super comfy sun loungers and the decor is exquisite. A
ssaona is one of the most popular places to spend weekends and during the summer it’s imperative that you book and reserve your sun lounger or a table for lunch. Sushi and Poke lovers will be thrilled with the fantastic selection of dishes on offer from their incredible menu.
Make sure to enjoy several cocktails and a bottle of wine from their extensive wine menu.

The original Puro Palma Beach was created in the mid-2000s and has become an institution in the city of Palma as a small slice of heaven.

You’ll find several Zhero Boat House and Beach Clubs just outside of Palma, with most being centred in and around Magaluf.
Zhero Beach Club is one of the more affordable beach clubs in Palma, and a short drive from Palma city centre. Guests can choose between the swimming pool and direct access to the stunning sea by a ladder. Sun loungers are priced at €25 per day and you can easily spend an entire day at Zhero Beach Club.
The restaurant has a strong focus on Asian food, with Sushi being one of its specialities. Dining in Zhero Beach Club will not leave you destitute unlike some of the other beach clubs in Mallorca.
Zhero Boathouse Magaluf has a smaller pool and the sun loungers are quite cramped together. If you have to choose between one or the other, Zhero Beach Club is the better of the two.
8. Balneario Illetas
One of the oldest beach clubs in Mallorca, Balneario Illetas started off as a popular restaurant before expanding into the beach club institution that it currently is. It’s also one of the only beach clubs on the islands that serve breakfasts, which are not to be missed.
Balneario Illetas is also one of the only beach clubs in Mallorca that has affordable cocktails that taste as good as they look. The bartenders do not use watered down spirits that you may find in some beach bars and clubs around the island.
Sitting in its own bay, Balneario Illetas has the good fortune to be one of the most private beach clubs with water so clear that you’ll want to spend the entire day swimming out to boats that bob lazily on the sea.
Whether you decide to spend an afternoon or an evening in Balneario Illetas, you’re going to have a fantastic time eating some of the best Mallorquin food. This is my favourite beach club in Mallorca and I love its relaxed atmosphere and stunning beach.
Depending on the season and time of year you can rent sunbeds from €25 per bed.

With gorgeous views across the Bay of Palma, you can enjoy a long leisurely lunch or spend the day chilling out by the pool and soaking up the festive environment of Um Beach House.
And like a lot of beach clubs in Ibiza, Um Beach House has a minimum spend policy in place. There are a number of factors in play for the minimum spend that depends on the day of the week, as well as the time of the year and of course which section of Um Beach House you reserve your sun lounger in.

Beaches in Mallorca
Of course, it’s not just only beach clubs in Mallorca where you can enjoy the sun. Mallorca is blessed with hundreds of coves and beaches that lead to some of the most outrageous watercolours you’ve ever seen.
Mallorca is also one of those islands that is best explored from the water as you never know what you might encounter around each headland. Renting a car is one of the best ways to explore the island and its many beaches, but thankfully Mallorca also has well-connected bus routes that connect towns and beaches with one another.
