Before hitting one of the major clubs in the three main clubbing areas of Ibiza Town, Playa Den Bossa and San Antonio, a typical day in Ibiza can consist of heading to the beach before watching the sunset and then heading to a restaurant and some bars.

One of the best things about Ibiza is that there are many gorgeous beaches to relax from the night before or party throughout the day. Two of our favourites are Cala Bassa and Cala Conta, which are located close to San Antonio.

Cala Bassa beach is set in a large semi-circle, offering views of San Antonio in the distance. The water is crystal clear with lovely white sand, whilst there are pine trees that run along the back of the beach offering a nice shade from the blazing sun.

Cala Conta, close by to Cala Bassa, likewise has beautiful sand and amazing fresh waters. Both are just a 15-30 minute ferry ride from the San Antonio front near the Egg. Others worth checking out near San Antonio include Cala Tarida, Cala Gracio, Cala D’Hort, Cala Vadella and Cala Carbo.

If you want your daytime experience in San Antonio a bit more lively then find yourself a piece of sand on the beach outside one of the bars on the front such as The Ibiza Rocks Bar, The Orange Corner and Itaca, where resident and guest DJs at these bars will provide your soundtrack.

Finally in San Antonio there is Cala des Moro which is outside Kanya, so again, you can listen to the music pumping from the speakers during the day. There’s also a plethora of boat parties leaving from the beachfront in San Antonio to party through the daytime, so be sure to check them out.

On the Ibiza Town end of the island for beaches, there’s the likes of Talamanca, Las Salinas – which is probably the most famous of the lot, Cala Jondal, Figueretas and Playa Den Bossa.

A big part of anyone’s Ibiza experience should be watching the beautiful sunsets on the sunset strip in San Antonio, at the likes of Café Del Mar, Mambo, Kanya and Savannah.

Cafe del Mar is the most famous of these as it is the original Ibiza sunset café and pioneers of the chill out cd compilation albums. I never fail to get goose bumps listening to ambient music whilst admiring the spectacular sunsets.

Next to Café Del Mar is Café Mambo, which is host to some of the world’s finest guest DJs on a nightly basis. Some of our best Ibiza nights over the years have been down at Mambo listening to various world class DJs, alongside thousands in attendance.

After watching the sunset, if you fancy some food in one of Ibiza’s three major towns of San Antonio, Playa Den Bossa or Ibiza Town head to one of their many restaurants – there’s loads to choose from whether they be Spanish, Italian, Indian or Chinese amongst various others.

In San Antonio, there’s great food to be found at Il Vaticano, Sa Capella, the Curry Club, Rincon de Pepe, Kasbah, David’s Pizzeria, and the Tijuana Tex Mex. There’s also smaller local bars/cafes serving up some excellent tapas at the top of the West End. Also the likes of Ibiza Rocks Bar, Mambo, Savannah and Kanya serve up nice meals. In Playa Den Bossa look out for the Moorea Grill Restaurant, Jet Pizzeria, and also Sissi’s, whilst over in Ibiza Town any of the eateries in the three dining districts of Dalt Vila, Sa Panya and The Port are worth checking out. Then there’s the higher priced, yet trendier restaurants around the island like Bambuddah Grove, Banyan Palace, Aura and KM5.

It’s definitely worth hitting the busy action of Ibiza Town where you’ll find loads of little bars such as the Base Bar, Rock Bar, Angelo and Tango amongst various others. Close to these bars promoters from the big club nights parade through the streets to create awareness and sell tickets for their events each night. There’s usually plenty of half-naked female dancers, transvestites, entertainers and colourful costumes.

Playa Den Bossa is a lively beach area with various restaurants, bars and clubs. It is host to probably the best beach bar in the world – Bora Bora, which is free entry, yet is open early till late every single day. Here people from all over the world will party together, dancing on the tables and in the sea, before heading into the inside club at around midnight to continue the party.

In San Antonio you’ll find thousands of British tourists partying alongside Spaniards, Germans, Italians and many other nationalities in a wide choice of bars whether it be in the West End, or alongside the S’Arenal beach front at the likes of Ibiza Rocks Bar, The Orange Corner, Plastik, Itaca and Ocean Beach Club or along the sunset front at bars such as at Café del Mar, Mambo, Kanya and Savannah where clubbers go to warm-up for the clubs, as these bars have free entry and cheaper drinks, with massive guest DJs playing pre club open air sets.
