Ibiza

Nightlife and beyond

Ibiza might be known for being a bit of a party playground, but there’s more to this Balearic Island than big-name clubs and A-list DJs. Away from the nightlife-focussed resorts of San Antonio and Playa d’en Bossa, it sings to a different tune.

The main resorts

Northern towns like Puerto San Miguel and Portinatx showcase sandy coves and hills blanketed with wild flowers. Further south, Cala Llonga offers a similarly relaxed atmosphere and boasts one of the biggest beaches on the island. Santa Eulalia, meanwhile, provides a happy medium between lively and laid-back. The boutiques and bars here have a cosmopolitan edge, and the town’s sweep of pale sand is a favourite with families.

Ibiza Town

Ibiza’s capital, Ibiza Town, has an old quarter that’s earned itself a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list. It’s cocooned by Medieval stone walls and overlooked by a fortress. The newer part of town, down by the waterfront, is an amalgamation of high-end restaurants, well-dressed bars and market stalls selling all sorts of clothes and souvenirs.

Es Cana

Es Cana is a small picture-postcard resort on the east coast of Ibiza. It’s a fairly relaxed place, with a tiny working harbour overlooked by whitewashed houses and a cluster of waterfront restaurants. Evenings here revolve around lively bars – though the real buzz comes from the famous weekly hippie market.

Playa d'en Bossa

Set on Ibiza’s southeast coast, Playa d’en Bossa is a real all-rounder. It’s home to club legends Space and Bora Bora, but it also comes with a great waterpark and the longest beach on the island. And that’s not all – it’s also only about 10 minutes from the old town sights of the capital.

Port des Torrent

This old port village on Ibiza’s west coast is the exact opposite of its fast-living neighbour, San Antonio Town, just 5 kilometres along the coast. Port des Torrent is a tranquil place with days spent relaxing on the little sandy beach and evenings chilling out at a traditional taverna. And of course ‘San An’ is always on call for livelier bars and clubs.

Santa Eulalia

Santa Eulalia is a classy little resort on Ibiza’s southeast coast. It’s earned a reputation for being the island’s gastronomic centre, and also comes with art galleries, designer boutiques and high-end gift shops. There’s a sophisticated marina here too, with more restaurants as well as bars. And the spotlessly clean sand keeps up the standard on the resort’s 2 beaches.

San Jordi

San Jordi shares map space with a couple of the White Isle’s big players, Ibiza Town and Playa d’en Bossa, towards the island’s southern tip. And while these lively resorts are close by – both within a 10-minute drive – San Jordi is poles apart. Most of the buzz in this tiny place centres on its majestic church and its Saturday morning flea market.

San Carlos

Laid-back San Carlos can be found in the island’s northeast, nestled between Cala San Vicente and Santa Eulalia. It may be tiny, but this village is known all over Ibiza. Back in the Sixties, it was one of the original meeting points for hippies and backpackers. And it’s not lost that artsy, bohemian feel. You’ll see the best evidence of it at the Saturday market, where dreadlocked merchants peddle incense, tarot cards, and embroidered floor cushions.
