Sa Trinxa, Ibiza

The coolest social dining spot on Salinas.

We may say this a lot but, thanks to its location, décor, history and attitude, Sa Trinxa really does typify the Ibiza island vibe.

Set on the sand at the far end of Salinas beach (past the nudey strip), Sa Trinxa has become its own little microcosm - the most festive and social corner of the beach, its atmosphere built around the restaurant and bar that's brought energy to the area since 1978.

The coastal views are sweeping and bright, while the bar's décor is beachy, colourful and relaxed - this does not feel like another modern, minimalist venue. The food is fresh and varied, with drinks always flowing and the appealing option to have your order brought to you on a tray on the beach - true holiday style.

Sa Trinxa is not officially a pumping dance spot but, with a consistently great soundtrack spilling out onto the beach provided by residents including Marcello Marchito, Andy Piper and the much-loved Jon Sa Trinxa (check out his Spotlight podcast here), a few eager movers on the beach can occasionally escalate into a full sand-bed dance floor. Peak-season can be very lively, but for most of the year it remains reasonably relaxed.

Sa Trinxa attracts an interesting, international, and beautiful crowd but, crucially, hasn't 'up-marketed' itself beyond the point of recognition, remaining a classic Ibicenco experience for all.
