Scenic sunset spots on Ibiza

Here are some of our favourite spots to catch a sunset on Ibiza.

Sunsets on the White Isle are easily, bar none, some of the best the Mediterranean has to offer. Fortunately for us, Ibiza has no shortage of scenic spots to catch our solar system's massive star take a dive into the seductive sapphire sea. Each site is unique in setting and for that reason, offers a different viewing angle of that magical time when day turns into night. So without further ado, here are the best places to catch the sunset on Ibiza.

Benirras Beach

Located on the north side of the island about 10 minutes from San Miguel by car is the beach of Benirrás. A pretty and pebbly beach, Benirrás offers picturesque views of the grand rock formation known as Cap Bernet or ‘the finger of God' as it is referred to by the locals. This beach is popular for sunsets because it is quite sheltered and intimate. One of the special rituals to be held in the summer are the Sundays when the drummers come to ‘drum down the sunset.' If you're looking to have food and drinks, then just head on over to Elements Ibiza. The Mediterranean style restaurant not only charms with its boho-chic décor made of recycled materials but also features stunning views of sundown.

Cala Conta

Cala Conta needs no introduction. The popular beach with crystal clear waters is only about a 15-minute drive south-west of San Antonio. The sunsets are unrivalled here. This is because it is one of the few spots on the most western side of the island. You can head to any one of the three beaches around the area, but if you're trying to grub then you are best off making a reservation at Sunset Ashram. Sunset Ashram claims to have ‘possibly the best sunset of Ibiza,' and they may be right since the beach bar overlooks the entire bay. Sunset time gets quite busy, however, so it is highly recommended to head on over early to grab your favourite spot.

Es Codolar Beach

Head down south from Ibiza Town and Playa d'en Bossa then through Las Salinas Natural Park and you will find the quiet and unfrequented beach of Es Codolar. The beach is covered in pebbles so it would be a good idea to wear proper footwear. Fret not, though, because this natural barricade is easy to overcome. Once you do, you will find yourself in dreamy surroundings. If you want something a little more fanciful then you settle down at the Experimental Beach Club. There you can be treated to views of the sunset whilst lounging on recliners and enjoying some cocktails. Later in the season, the sun sets on the sea rather than right by it over the tip of Es Vedrà, also visible from this spot. Both views are spectacular.

Santa Inés (Santa Agnès)

This spot is located about 20 minutes north of San Antonio is the small farming village of Santa Inés. Travel further into the town and you will find the charming spot with a little family run restaurant of Las Puertas del Cielo nestled in the woods. The restaurant is named after the beautiful natural rock arch that sits off in your view of the sea. A very chill and relaxing atmosphere, the place is perfect for getting away from the hustle and bustle of the busier parts of the island. Sit on the cliff or grab a place at the restaurant for drinks or a scrumptious homecooked meal. You can enjoy some wine while taking in the magic of the natural surroundings at sundown for an unforgettable moment.

San Antonio Bay

While not as well-known for its sundowns as its San Antonio sister spot on the sunset strip, San Antonio Bay has some quite enviable sites for twilight as well. The rooftop over at Sol House provides unparalleled views of San Antonio in its entirety from one end of the bay to the other. Lounge and enjoy some cocktails while the local DJ plays some tunes, or eat a burger from the rooftop grill. Either way, you'll be impressed with your views. Head west a short walk further and you can find the ever so chic Kumharas. The venue is a bar, restaurant and lounge all wrapped up into one which makes it ideal for when day turns to night. Eat a proper meal with your best friends or meet that charming girl or guy for a casual cocktail. Whichever way you choose to go, you know you can't go wrong.

Sunset Strip

Probably the most notable part of the island to enjoy the sunset is San Antonio's Sunset Strip. There you can find a spot on the rocks to enjoy the sunset. Of course, the strip is renowned for island hotspots like Café Mambo, Savannah Ibiza and Café Del Mar where some of the island's most notable DJs play lively sets every night for pre-parties. If you walk a little north of the main strip you'll find other San Antonio hits like Kasbah, Kanya, Bamboo Bar, and the Golden Buddha, all of which are perfect for a drink and some views. Finally, although Hostal La Torre technically is not on the strip, it is still in the San Antonio and only a 10-minute taxi away. Nestled in the quaint countryside of San An, right above a cliff, the restaurant offers an intimate and romantic ambience for your breathtaking sunset.

Regardless of where you choose to watch the sunset, make sure to make it a part of your Ibiza holiday.
