The longest stretch of sand on the island, the beach of Playa d'en Bossa is dotted with bars and beach lounges offering a variety of scenes from the super trendy to the more laid back. The clear waters cover a sandy sea bed making it ideal for ballgames and safe for younger children. There is little shade so take coverups. Excellent views of Dalt Vila (the Ibiza Old Town). Perfect for long beach walks! Great offer of water sports, boats and a variety of fun toys on the water.

The far end of the beach (away from Ibiza Town, towards the watch tower) is calmer and quieter than the Ibiza end, less people and much less house music. 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.

Facilities: A wealth of bars, beach clubs and restaurants are dotted along its length.

Getting there: Reached by car, bicycle, or bus from Ibiza Town, only 4 kms away. Parking is fairly easy as there are dedicated car parks along the length of the beach, usually close to popular restaurants.

Beach bars

The beach at Playa d'en Bossa is lined with beach bars, from small beach huts to cool chill-out lounges and restaurants. Many, including the (in)famous Bora Bora, play house music throughout the day. Others further down away from Ibiza, such as Scirocco, Sands and Nassau are a bit more relaxed and serve excellent food.
