12 of the best beach clubs on Ibiza

A roundup of our favourites on the island.

The White Isle is full of magical beach clubs where you can spend the day in style. Some are sleek and suave, whilst others are more rustic or traditional in style. A proportion are more like a beach restaurant, though with the same vibe as a beach club.

No matter what you prefer, we can guarantee that there will be something to accommodate your tastes in our selection. All of them are top spots to soak up the inimitable laid-back atmosphere of Ibiza. Read on to find your own dream beachside chill place.


Beachouse

Playa d'en Bossa

The thatched-roof wooden cabaña that is Beachouse is found at the quieter end of Playa d'en Bossa and is all the better for it. Constructed from tropical hardwood and surrounded by palms, it is possible to imagine being transported to the Carribean. Like the venue, the cuisine is rustic, yet sophisticated: Mediterranean fare with a dash of Italian. You'll enjoy its small-scale intimacy, clean lines and general airiness. We think it's quite divine.


Nikki Beach Ibiza

Santa Eulalia

For five-star luxury, Nikki Beach Ibiza, the White Isle outpost of global beach club brand, offers its trademark sleek white style, with rows of day beds and flowing drapes. You'll get valet parking, some of the freshest sushi and seafood around and an array of signature cocktails. Live saxophonists, great music and a beautiful crowd combine to offer a glamorous Ibiza experience. This is the place to be seen sipping champagne and flopping out after a satisfying lunch.


Nassau Beach Club

Playa d'en Bossa

Nassau Beach offers high-class cuisine, fine wines and exquisite cocktails, either in its dining areas or delivered to you down the red carpet to your sun lounger on the sands. With a choice of menus: Mediterranean/Asian or Japanese Teppanyaki, it is a gourmet's paradise in the sunshine. At night, the tempo rises and the focus moves inside to the cocktail bar. Look out for its monthly full moon events, which include special guest DJs and sexy fire shows.


Kumharas

San Antonio Bay

Kumharas is hip and hedonistic, with a distinctly laid-back bohemian vibe. You'll find acres of sofas where you can enjoy the famous San Antonio sunset, sipping a strawberry daiquiri and generally lounging. There's even a market with stalls selling handmade jewellery and clothing. This is high on the list for proper Ibiza hippy chic. Keep an eye out for live music nights with local favourites.


Aiyanna Ibiza

Cala Nova beach

Aiyanna Ibiza is Boho Chic personified. Gorgeous sea views, paired with the natural style of the restaurant and gloriously colourful Guatamalan parasols shout fabulousness. Either lounge and sip on a cocktail or try its diverse menu that takes in much of the Mediterranean; enough to keep you satisfied until the sun goes down. Alternatively, buy some drinks or snacks from the fun and friendly food truck to take to the beach with you.


Tropicana Ibiza Beach Club

Cala Jondal

A legendary and low-key beach club, Tropicana Ibiza Beach Club is more chilled than some of its neighbours and offers gorgeous food plus incredibly friendly service. With extensive seating going onto the sand of the beach, a great ambience and varied menu of posh looking plates, you have all you need. Its choice of Mediterranean and international and dishes, with Ibizan specialities and local seafood, is more than enough to satisfy. Lounge in a hammock (book ahead), relax on one of their comfortable sunbeds or laze on the very pretty semi-private beach.


Chiringuito Blue

Santa Eulalia

For a genuine beach club experience, head to the far south end of the promenade and you will encounter the glamorous and chic Chiringuito Blue restaurant, nestled next to the sand. Here you can dine in style on dishes made from hyper-local ingredients in the cool white surroundings, illuminated by the colour blue (of course). Its kiosk is great for beach take-away.


Tanit Beach Ibiza

Playa d'en Bossa

At Tanit Beach Ibiza, whether dining under the glamorous chandeliers inside or beneath the capacious parasols on the beach, you are welcomed into a refined world of elegance and top quality hospitality. It is the perfect location to relax and disconnect. To cool off, the water is only a few metres of soft golden sand away and you are safe in the knowledge that the huge effigy of Ibizan goddess Tanit is watching over you and enriching your experience.


Elements Ibiza

Benirràs beach

One that's definitely for the secret hippy in you. Elements Ibiza overlooks the famous Benirrás beach in the north of the island, offering everything to help you embrace the day with morning yoga and a juice bar and a massage for later on. Stick around till evening, especially on Sundays, and you can wander onto the beach to hear the famous drummers and then slip back to sip cocktails and sample menu creator Mauro di Mauro's magical menu.


Amante

Sol d'en Serra beach

Amante has arguably one of the best beach club settings on the island, in its own private cove. By day it offers luxury day beds before turning into the perfect evening location for a romantic dinner. Serving ultra-fresh and vibrant Mediterranean food, its multi-level restaurant allows you many ways to enjoy the sumptuous views as you listen to the waves crash on the beach.


El Chiringuito de cala gracioneta

San Antonio

Overlooking one of the cutest little coves in San Antonio Bay, El Chiringuito has a sweeping dining area, with small, almost private, dining terraces, as well as four-poster beds on the cute Carribean-looking beach. All are excellent retreat spots. This place is ideal for sipping sangria and living la dolce vita. Its menu has many sharing options with dishes that shout freshness and originality. Call ahead to reserve.


Jockey Club

Las Salinas beach

A drive through the spectacular salt flats of Ibiza will bring you to the Jockey Club, the family-run restaurant that retains the feeling of a laid-back, friendly chiringuito. When there, dine on crisp calamari and Ibérico ham. Get one of its spankingly good cocktails and vibrate to laid-back tunes. An island institution where it's worth looking out for DJ sets from visiting local legends.
