Ibiza Virgins Guide: Resorts and Nightlife
A BEGINNERS GUIDE..
So you’ve landed here wanting to know some information about the magical island before booking? Or just can’t wait until your holiday to get in that summer spirit?
Summer or winter, rain or sunshine, Ibiza is always on our minds and we want to get you hyped too. So for all you who have not yet had the pleasure of visiting the white isle, we have created a first-timers guide to help you get well on your way!
WHAT, WHERE, WHEN?
Although Ibiza is a small island there are many beautiful areas, but the prime tourist resorts are San Antonio, Playa D’en Bossa and Ibiza Town. These resorts also hold many of the islands biggest super-clubs which Ibiza is famed for, so here is a breakdown of each.
THE ALL ROUNDER:
‘San An’ as it is more commonly referred to, is our home on the west coast with a big offering! We will make this brief as we have another guide page here, which is filled with information on the sunny resort we call home!
Home to the notorious west-end and the stunning sunset strip.. as different from each other as chalk and cheese. The sunset strip with its picturesque backdrop for that perfect squad sunset cover photo to the west-ends offering of cheap drinks deals; think sipping fish bowls with your squad.
IN AND AROUND SAN ANTONIO | NIGHTLIFE
Boasting 5 venues for day or night partying (us being one, obviously) there is a party around every corner pretty much. Benimussa Park (the abandoned zoo) sits just on the outskirts of San An, jump in a taxi (around 10€) and get your animal on. Ocean Beach is more central sitting by the waterfront, our advice is hop in a taxi for a small 8€ and you will be there in minutes. Others clubs such as Eden and Es Paradis are accessible on foot located in the heart of San An by the Ibiza Rocks Bar (yes, the home of those famous chicken pittas) right by the waterfront.
On your last evening of your holiday, assemble your squad and head over to the sunset strip with some bevs and enjoy the sunset, the perfect end to your holiday to the white isle!
Playa d’en Bossa
Located on the East of the island, not far from the airport sits the international resort of Playa D’en Bossa. On the main strip you will find an array of options for bars and restaurants mixed with larger clubs. It also as has the longest beach, which is popular due to its parties and beaut views! Travel to Playa d’en Bossa from San Antonio will take approximately 30 minutes in a taxi (around 30€) or slightly longer on the bus (from 3.50€) from San Antonio.
IN AND AROUND BOSSA | NIGHTLIFE
Bossa plays home to a few big super clubs all within close distance to one and other! Located right by the airport you will find the long standing DC-10. Moving more towards the centre of Bossa you will find the Hard Rock Hotel, Ushuaia and Hï (the old SPACE) all next door to each other right by the waterfront. A little further North and you will find Sankeys located a few streets along.
Head over to Bossa where you will be spoilt for options for club nights. After dancing the night away, get a couple of bevs from the local supermarket and sit and watch the sunrise! The perfect Instagram post!
North of Playa d’en Bossa you will find the stunning Ibiza Town which has a beautiful historic and upmarket feel. It is also home to the beautiful Marina where you are frequented with bars and restaurants. The Dalt Vila offers views for days and is a cultural dip into Ibiza’s heritage for those opting for something a bit different during the day. Taxi and bus options are also available to travel to Ibiza Town with a taxi taking around 20 minutes (around 25€) or the bus (3.50€) from San Antonio.
IN AND AROUND IBIZA TOWN | NIGHTLIFE
Ibiza Town has some of the more up-market options of clubbing and dinning but one of the most popular is Pacha! Sitting a few streets back from the stunning harbour, you can either head to a bar before hand for some pre-drinks or straight to the club.
Cure that hang over by taking a trip to Ibiza Town with your squad, grab some lunch and spend the afternoon sipping cocktails along the marina. Views for days, making it the perfect place to get that shot toasting your drinks with a beaut backdrop!
As Ibiza is a clubbing haven and San Rafael is a big player, although it is not a major tourist area it boasts two of biggest clubs. Located opposite each other, Amnesia and Privelege both sit in the middle of the island making them easy enough to reach (about 20€) taxi ride or you can hop on the notorious disco bus (generally 3.50€) from San Antonio.
Get dressed up, throw some glitter on and head over to one of the longest standing clubs on the island and party the night away till dawn! Wise advice.. comfort is key when dancing till the early hours, flats all the way!
