Welcome to another article on our blog! The summer season is coming to an end, but Ibiza is a paradise to enjoy all year round. In this article we will tell you about the best sunsets in Ibiza: where you can find them and why they are the best ones.
Why you shouldn’t miss the best sunsets in Ibiza?
Ibiza is one of the sunset paradises, not only in Europe, but all over the world. From many of its coves, beaches or cafés, the sunsets in Ibiza are incomparable. Below you will find our selection of the best sunsets in Ibiza. Off we go!
Cala Benirrás is probably the most famous place to watch the sunset in Ibiza. Why? Not only because of how spectacularly the sun hides on the horizon, with the islet of Es Cap Bernat in the background, but also because of the special atmosphere.
Every summer Sunday dozens of people with drums gather in Cala Benirrás, creating the hippie atmosphere so typical of Ibiza since the 1960s. Of course, in Cala Benirrás you will be able to enjoy one of the best sunsets in Ibiza while swimming or just lying on the shore, but remember – this place gets a bit crowded during summer months, so don’t be late!
Cala Conta, also known as Platges de Comte, offers another of the best sunsets on Ibiza. This is one of the most popular beaches on the island – you can find bars and restaurants where you can enjoy the red sky.
As one of the most famous beaches on the island, you will find many people waiting for the sun to disappear while they have a drink on the shore. That’s why it’s best to go early if you want to take a good place to enjoy the natural beauty that this corner of Ibiza has to offer. You can even come by boat!
If you’ve heard of Ibiza, you’ve probably heard of Es Vedrà, one of the most famous places on the island. It is a mythical place, where stories and legends have been circulating among the island’s inhabitants for a long time.
It is said that UFOs have been sighted here, that it is the second Bermuda Triangle and that it is one of the most magnetic places in the world. You can’t get to the island, but if you go to the Torre des Savinar, you can enjoy this magnificent sunset with the islet of Es Vedrà in the background. The perfect picture for Instagram!
In Cala Bassa you will find one of the best sunsets in Ibiza in a beach with crystal clear waters and white sand. You’ll feel like spending a whole day and never returning to your routine again. It is a beach located near San Antonio, the second most important town on the island after the capital.
Now we head towards the south of the island, where we will find the Es Codolar beach, not very frequented by tourists. From here we will have a different perspective from Es Vedrà, the magical islet of Ibiza, which we will see in the distance while we enjoy a spectacular sunset in this pebbly beach.
Café Mambo, Sant Antoni
We leave aside the beaches and highlight a coffee in our list of the best sunsets in Ibiza: the famous Café Mambo. It is said to be one of the best sunsets in the world, and here you can enjoy it while you have a few drinks and some snacks surrounded by some famous people.
In Punta Galera you won’t find a beach, bars or restaurants. Here we will find flat rocks from where we will be able to jump to the sea if we want to take a dip. A different and quiet place where you can enjoy an original sunset in Ibiza.
Hacienda Na Xamena
We’re changing places again and now we’re heading to the first five-star hotel that was built in Ibiza: Hacienda Na Xamena. From here you can enjoy the sunset while you are on your terrace or at the spa.
Ses Salines are salt flats located in the south of Ibiza, where the sun is reflected in the salt ponds at certain times of the year. If you are lucky and there is no excessive wind, you can see how the ground becomes a mirror where you can enjoy the colors of the Ibizan sunset.
Sa Penya Esbarrada, Santa Agnès
In Sa Penya Esbarrada we find a different and unique sunset on the island. At 20 minutes from San Antonio, we find the village of Santa Agnès in the north of the island. Also known as “The Gates of Heaven”, it is named after the stone arch we can see in the sea.
Café del Mar
El Café del Mar is one of the most famous cafés on Ibiza since 1980, when it opened in Sant Antoni. Here you can taste some cocktails (although not exactly cheap) while enjoying one of the most famous Ibiza sunsets. Café del Mar is famous for its annual chill-out compilation albums.
