The longest stretch of sand on the island, walking along Playa d'en Bossa can feel like walking through the many faces of Ibiza. The length of the beach is lined with bars and beach lounges, offering a variety of scenes from the laid back family-friendly, to the super trendy to the party-goers' dance spots.

The clear waters cover a sandy sea bed making it ideal for ball games and safe for younger children. And it's not just the kids who get to play - Playa d'en Bossa has the greatest selection of water sports, boats and a variety of fun water toys on offer anywhere on the island. This beach is perfect for long walks with views all round: a lonely watchtower at one end, Dalt Vila (Ibiza's old town) in the distance at the other and sparkling ocean in between.

The far end of the beach (away from Ibiza Town, towards the watch tower) is calmer and quieter than the Ibiza end, with fewer people and much less house music. But for those of you looking for the definitive Ibiza beach party, wander along to Bora Bora Bar, roughly in the middle of d'en Bossa beach next to the Jet Complex, where there are several bars playing club music and serving cold vodka-lemons in the sun!

Tip: Enjoy a walk towards the watchtower at the end of the beach.

Beach bars and restaurants

A wealth of bars, beach clubs and restaurants are dotted along its length, including the infamous beach party spot Bora Bora, the stylish and delicious bar and restaurants Sir Rocco, Nassau Tanit Beach and Nassau, the relaxed and cool beach vibes of No Name and many more venues, all plonked right on top of the Playa d'en Bossa sand, a few metres from the ocean.
