Clubbers, families, couples, all have one thing in common when it comes to taking holidays in Ibiza – we all think the beach is great! So what could be better than choosing accommodation right by it, to feel the sand in your toes and hear the gentle lapping of the waves on the shore? And the views! The blue, blue Mediterranean waters stretching off as far as the eye can see.....
Here on Spotlight we've just put together a whole page of Beach Front Accommodation that will suit one and all – clubbers on Playa den Bossa, couples in Talamanca, families in Portinatx or San Antonio Bay – to name just a few.
Lets start with a look at places on the beach for the young set where Playa den Bossa's long, long stretch of soft sand is home to famous beach bars like Bora Bora, Ushuaia, La Plage, Sands, et al.
Mere mortal clubbers just love the Jet Apartments, great accommodation for groups, with 3 pools and of course the famous Bora Bora on the compound, no wonder they're one of our most popular apartments.
Clubbers who want to splash the cash can stay in the modern, more luxurious surroundings of the Garbi (photo), so handy for the beach and Ibiza town, or the all new, all Djing, all dancing Ushuaia which promises, style, luxury and entertainment, all in one neat package.
There's enough room on the huge beach for families too. Popular year after year with mum, dad and the kids are the hotels of the Fiesta – Don Toni and Club Don Toni – group, and Sirenis – Goleta and Tres Carabelas, which have entertainment aplenty and the golden sands on the doorstep.
Other beach hotels favoured by families are the Playa Bella (photo), famous for its evening entertainment and big family apartments, and the Fiesta Milord, both in San Antonio Bay. In Portinatx, with 3 beautiful sandy coves, the El Greco and Club Hotel Portinatx are firm family favourites.
Smaller, more laid back and with a totally different atmosphere, Talamanca, with a great selection of restaurants dotted along its beach caters more for couples who like quieter accommodation but still close to Ibiza town. Four hotels each with a different feel can be found on the beach here – The Argos has superb views of the old town and a touch of four star class, the Hostal Talamanca (photo), now has new suites which lead directly on to the beach, The Simbad was upgraded to four stars recently after an 'urban chic' makeover and Ses Figueres offers great personable service so typical of a small, family run hotel.
We've only scratched the surface of our beach hotel selection here, so why not take a look at our new page as there's sure to be something just perfect for you?
Without a doubt, one of the best nights out on the island for family and friends, the Pintxa competition in San Antonio is a 'must do'!
Rated an excellent 9/10 by previous guests, the Arcomar Apartments in San Antonio Bay come highly recommended.
