Purobeach, Mallorca

This Mallorca beach bar proved so popular that other locations have been opened up all around Europe. Situated on a mini peninsula in the city of Palma de Mallorca, this is definitely not a seaside shack serving up rum drinks in plastic cups. A distinct, modern design and a menu that goes well beyond cold beer make this one of the world’s hippest beach bars.

Purobeach has a large terrace with a swimming pool that looks right out over the Med. The outdoor area is furnished with teakwood chairs, umbrellas and canopies, and Balinese-style beds. You can eat and drink here, but you can do other things as well. There's even a spa where you can get a massage. And, of course, Mallorca is one of the Balearics, so it's no surprise that nighttime brings DJs and dance parties to Purobeach.
