Sa Coma Nightlife
Sa Coma is a laid-back resort on the east coast of Majorca. Sa Coma nightlife is low key and centred around bars and restaurants rather than big-name clubs. Many bars hold special quiz nights and entertainment making it a lovely spot for families to enjoy an evening together.
Sa Coma is a purpose-built resort, and residents work to a tourist-focused rather than a traditional timetable, so evenings start and finish earlier here. If you do find yourself craving the liveliness of a strip full of bars and nightclubs then Cala Millor is nearby. For a taste of local life, a wander to S’illot makes a charming evening excursion. S’illot is linked to Sa Coma by a promenade, and there’s even a tourist train running in high season, making it perfect for a few sundowners, followed by a gentle stroll while listening to the sound of the sea.
Bars in Sa Coma are family-friendly and fun. Most of them are on the wide promenade that stretches along the beautiful beachfront. If you love the craic of an Irish Style bar you’ll find a few options, complete with shamrocks, Guinness, great food and music. For those who enjoy their evenings to have a distinctive taste of home there are British bars with football, quiz nights and the obligatory Sunday roast.
Many bars host live bands including fabulous tribute acts and cool rock and roll shows. If music is a particular passion then visiting Sa Coma mid-May will give you the chance to enjoy Mallorca Smooth Jazz festival as part of your holiday.
Having a choice of bars means a great range of drinks available. As well as familiar international drinks, you’ll be able to enjoy a local beer or perhaps indulge in a Manto Negro wine over dinner. Another discovery will be Herbes, a traditional liqueur, often given at the end of a meal. It’s made with a blend of herbs and has a distinct aniseed flavour. Make sure to sample Carajillo, a strong espresso with a generous shot of local brandy, often dressed with cinnamon or lemon zest. For soft drink fans, a glass of freshly squeezed Sóller orange juice is out of this world, while teas and coffees are always available. You’ll see branded soft drinks too, so there’ll be something to suit every member of the family.
The lively bars in Sa Coma meet the needs of most families and couples here. However, because they tend to close a little earlier than in other resorts, you get an early(ish) night, which means more time to enjoy the glorious sands that make Sa Coma famous.
However, if you’re craving a fix of flashing lights and dusk-till-dawn dancing, then Cala Millor is the spot for you. It’s just 10 minutes by bus or taxi, or around 45 minutes on foot along the coast. Once there, you’ll find clubs offering themed parties, fab DJs and all your favourite summer anthems. One of our favourites last season was La Havana. With its hot Latin vibe and gorgeous Cuban style setting, it’s the perfect place to get your fix of clubland. There are several good music bars here too, and plenty of restaurants, which all makes for a top evening out.
In keeping with its laid-back feel, Sa Coma doesn’t have dozens of party boats lining the shore. It’s easy to join a trip with a sophisticated party feel, though. Several companies offer a blissed-out day on the waves and a fabulous meal courtesy of the crew, perhaps taking a dip at beautiful Es Trenc beach as part of your trip. This type of excursion isn’t like a full-on Magaluf party boat experience, but you’ll get to enjoy music, a meal and a few drinks with family and new-found friends.
Nightlife in Sa Coma is perfect for families and couples, with good options for clubbing if you are happy to venture a little further afield. Bars in Sa Coma offer drinks to suit every palate, including some local specialities. Many have great food too, so you can enjoy an evening together without having to trek from place to place, which is perfect if you’ve got the kids with you.
A lack of big clubs doesn’t mean you’ll be struggling for ways to fill your evening. Enjoying a few quiz nights, karaoke or a game of pool all promise a laid-back holiday atmosphere. Couple this with the flexibility of having charming S’illot in walking distance and buzzy Cala Millor up the road and Sa Coma nightlife is an easy-going gem waiting to be enjoyed.
