Cotton Beach Ibiza and Fay

“A hassle free party experience. Essential Ibiza organised it all. Their on island experience clearly places them in a special position for looking after people. Amazing ” — Cathy Summers

When it comes to a day at the beach, Ibiza has a range of exclusive offerings that will exceed all expectations, with a level of service, comfort and quality that far surpass any preconceptions you may have. Cotton Beach is one of our favourite beach destinations when we want to feel the sand between our toes. Located overlooking Cala Tarida, the stunning beach concept enjoys a panoramic view of the surrounding area and offers three levels in which to spend you beach time. Its staff is as professional as it gets but with a warm and friendly attitude that makes you feel at home the minute you walk through the door into the bright white wonderland.

The main entrance brings you into the heart of the lounge that opens on to the terrace restaurant and you get your first glimpse of that view. The interior is all white, the wood burning fire is a big favourite during the winter months and there are some comfy sofas around tables for those that want to chill out before their table is ready. The Terrace is one of the best places on the island to enjoy an al fresco meal. Again, predominantly white, the view is simply breathtaking. You can see for miles, from the rocks on your right, out across the Mediterranean and to some special villas located high on the cliffs to your left. The menu has a Mediterranean flavor on the terrace but with some Cotton Beach twists. The DJ delivers the perfect soundtrack to your afternoon/ evening and there are live musicians jamming throughout, creating a very cool vibe. Don't be surprised if the table next to you suddenly jumps to its feet and starts dancing, we have seen it happen!

Take the staircase from the Terrace and head down to the beach and Cotton Beach Club has a range of luxurious day beds for you to relax and enjoy the heat of the sun. The beach is not huge so you are never more than a few steps away from a dip in the cool water. For those that prefer to spend the full day on the beach, there is a menu and your waiters will bring you food and drink all day if you require, leaving you free to think about nothing and chill out on your bed. If you take the stairs outside the Terrace and head up, past the cool boutique, selling some unique pieces that will make you stand out on any beach, you reach the brand new dining concept FAY Asian. In keeping with the rest of the venue, it boasts a stunning design and the uninterrupted view will leave you speechless. Inspired by visits to China, Thailand, Indonesia and Japan, where the use of healthy ingredients in preparing creative, fresh and amazing food is widespread, FAY Asian Cuisine will bring this concept to Ibiza for the 2015 season.

Cotton Beach enjoyed the perfect debut season, successfully attracting a discerning clientele to Cala Tarida, where, if you didn't book in advance, you were lucky to get a seat or bed. The idea to open all year round also proved a clever one, with transparent awnings in place to maintain the view while protecting patrons from the elements, an indoor and outdoor wood burning fire as well as warm blankets for those extra cold days, it became one of the places to visit for islanders and any tourists landing out of season. Cotton Beach has been a fantastic addition to the Ibiza beach club scene and one that redefines what you thought your day at the beach should be!
