A Tour Around the Best Beach Clubs in Ibiza
One of the things Ibiza is most known for is partying. However, this island is much more than just dancing in huge dance clubs until the wee hours of the morning. An activity that very few miss out on is having a mixed drink or cocktail on the beach during the day and enjoying the nice atmosphere and beautiful views. The Beach Clubs are in right now, and the selection is truly excellent. They are the perfect spots for having a drink at any time of the day, during sundown or to dine and dance practically right on the beach in a fun and unique atmosphere. Here there’s no need to plan anything. Just enjoy not worrying about bringing more than a swimsuit or beach clothes. For sure, it’s a space that’s as cool and amazing as the island’s best nightclub.
Cala Bassa Beach Club
Ibizan, creative fusion, Asian, and gourmet cuisine. With this intriguing headline, we present: Cala Bassa Beach Club. An absolutely lovely place located right next to the turquoise waters of Cala Bassa, where you can relax in their extremely comfortable hammocks and cabana beds or dance all night along with their full-time DJ. CBBC offers different restaurants in varying locations around the club. At CBBC Chiringo, you can try simple Mediterranean and Ibizan dishes prepared with fine-quality products while enjoying the views overlooking Cap Nonó. At CBBC Sushi, it’s hard to decide between their famous Ichigoland, Dragon, or spicy sushi (an interesting combination of tempura, salmon, surimi, shrimp, and venison). It’s this restaurant that has the most amazing culinary offer: fusion cuisine dishes prepared by experienced chefs, topped off with one of the best views on the island.
Boat services, massages, water sports, a full-time DJ, and their beautiful Taittinger Lounge – their VIP area for groups – add to the appeal of CBBC, one of Ibiza’s most famous beach clubs.
Blue Marlin Ibiza
Blue Marlin is one of those beach clubs perfect for any hour. Despite finding itself in Cala Jondal along with other beach clubs and excellent restaurants, choosing this one is easy. A good plan is to reserve a table and try any one of their original salads (like the one with watermelon, feta cheese, basil, tomato, sweet onion and lemon dressing), a spectacular sushi platter prepared on the spot by your chef, and the homemade lemon tart with raspberry sorbet. End with, or even begin the evening with, their exquisite The Espresso: a cocktail made with Vodka Grey Goose, Patron XO Café, espresso and sugar.
During lunch and post-lunch table conversation it’s easy to get lost in the catchy music. Two more cocktails in any one of the cabana beds outlining the Blue Marlin terrace and listening to the DJs start playing live. For the entire summer, this beach clubs organises a complete calendar of events with national and international stars. Before we realise it, we’re at the incredible Cala Jondal watching the sunset to the beat of House music.
Cotton Beach Club
This well-known beach club, located in Cala Tarida, re-invents Asian cuisine right in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. It lets us try, among other dishes, an excellent farm-raised Bluefin tuna said only to be available at FAY, their Asian Fusion restaurant. Prepared as small, precisely cut pieces seasoned with herbs and spices, it’s a delicious mouthful. But there’s more: sushi, an appetiser buffet, organic juices, and cocktails complete their menu, perfect for anyone who loves Asian cuisine and healthy food alike.
White furniture, white curtains, and the white hammocks make it so the leading star of the Cotton Beach Club is the sea. The nearly transparent, stunning green-blue water of the Cala Tarida is so hypnotising that all sense of time becomes lost. This happening poses no problem because a menu of 33 cocktails and around 50 other kinds of beverages encourage spending the evening and part of the night there. It’s almost mandatory to try one them, like the Bahama Mama (white rum, banana liquor, Malibu, grenadine, orange juice, and pineapple juice) or the Cotton Island Ice Tea (Vodka, Jack Daniels, blackberry liquor, Southern Comfort, lemon-lime juice, and Sprite). Irresistible.
Amante Beach Club is accessible by walking along a rocky path surrounded by cliffs, under which the beautiful Cala Sol d’En Serra awaits us. The first thing that catches our eye when seeing this beach club is that it looks very much like a haven in the middle of the cove. A modern, luxurious, and charming haven to spend time at from lunch until dinner. At 9 a.m. in the morning, we can enjoy a relaxing Hatha Yoga class right on the seafront. At lunchtime, we can choose from Spanish and Italian dishes off the extensive menu: light salads, gourmet barbecue, lobster rice… All served with fruits and vegetables from an organic garden only 5 minutes from the restaurant. It seems almost impossible to be more in touch with nature. During the evening: smoothies and cocktails in the chill-out area while we wait for the sun to set. At night: sitting in huge beanbag chairs at the open-air cinema. Like said before, a haven in the middle of paradise.
Nassau Ibiza emits good vibes from all four sides. Cool and fun are the two adjectives on their website used to describe it. This beach club, located at Playa d’En Bossa, is the epitome of vitality and relaxation. A refreshing Mediterranean-Asian or seafood lunch, a massage, shopping at their boutique, or enjoying a cocktail while relaxing on the cabana beds are some of the things that might make this one of the island’s most famous beach clubs. As the sun goes down, in the DJ booth next to the lounge, they start playing fresh and elegant electronic music to dance to into the night.
Not only can Nassau Beach Club be enjoyed from the beach, but there’s also a Boat Service available so you can try their dishes and cocktails from the comfort of your own boat.
Sa Punta Patchwook
Enjoying this beach club, located on the rooftop terrace of the renowned Sa Punta, is a treat for your senses. Because of its decoration full of textiles, colours, and Lebanese cuisine, this club in Dalt Vila is as intriguing as it is pleasant. The food, cocktails, design, and music make Sa Punta Patchwook more than just a place to eat.
When choosing which Lebanese food to try, it’s truly difficult to make a decision. It wasn’t easy, but our recommendation is to start off with a tabbouleh salad with mint, parsley, tomato, and bulgur, and then wet your appetite with cheese sambouseks (feta and halloumi cheese empanadas). For those who prefer meat, lamb kebabs; and for those who like fish, sea bass with cumin and sumac. If there’s still room left, the best way to complete this introduction to Lebanese food is with the almond tea cake with orange blossom ice cream.
An explosion of flavours and colours in front of the sea, never to forget.
