Boasting the title of ‘longest beach’ on the island, it comes as no surprise that Playa d’en Bossa, like its namesake tourist resort, is truly multi-faceted and offers many different aspects of the Ibiza experience all on the same stretch of sand. Just a short drive from the airport and a 15-minute car journey from Ibiza Town, this popular destination offers everything from relaxed places to chill with craft cocktails and fine food to energetic daytime parties with both international and on-island DJ talent on the decks. The good news is that this beach offers something for everyone regardless of their budget, starting with soft sands and stunning clear and calm waters that twinkle in a million different shades of blue. It is great for long seaside walks and beach games, while sporty types might enjoy a jog along the waters edge, with the view of Figueretas and Ibiza Town making for an idyllic backdrop. Due to its unspoiled vistas on the Med, Playa d’en Bossa is also perfect for watching the Full Moon rise out of the silvery waters if you’re on the island at the right time. Thanks to its close proximity to Bossa’s main strip, it’s easy to stop by one of the many convenience stores and stock up on snacks and drinks for the day, pull out a towel and enjoy the sound of the waves mixed with the beats from one of the many beach bars. Equally, there are some great value options to nip into for a bite to eat and cool down over a cold beverage, however, with a mix of five-star hotels and stylish seaside bars, beach clubs and eateries lining the shore, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining. Starting from its most southerly tip where a lonesome watchtower looks out to sea, The Grand Palladium resort offers five-star facilities including two outdoor pools and a beach restaurant to both residents and visitors who have purchased a day pass. One door down, the chic Coco Beach dazzles with elegant interiors, delicious food and some of the most spectacular evening entertainment you can imagine, including beautiful girls serving champagne while being suspended from the sky. Next up are sister venues Tanit Ibiza and Nassau Beach Ibiza, which offer slightly different vibes from one another but boast the same level of high culinary and hospitality standards. Tanit Beach is an elegant, but relaxed and family-friendly daytime venue where you can fuel up on healthy juices and a delicious Mediterranean and Asian inspired menu – but watch out for its popular parties, too, which turn the chic eatery into a vibrant dancefloor. Neighbouring Nassau Beach Club offers a more high-octane experience with fierce dancers and energetic DJ sets, keeping the atmosphere electric and attracting a crowd of fashionistas and well-heeled jet setters – though guests will always be able to find a quiet spot for a sun-drenched lunch or romantic dinner too. Edging closer towards Ibiza Town, the breezy and bright Beachouse dazzles with great food and drinks, comfy daybeds under palm trees and some fine DJ talent passing through its booth. Next door, Hard Rock Hotel’s The Beach Club lures revelers with its own offering of refreshing drinks and tasty food and a vibrant atmosphere. The glamorous Ushuaïa Ibiza needs no introduction to Ibiza veterans and is represented with two offerings on Playa d’en Bossa’s sands, the modern and cool Italian eatery Sir Rocco and the trendy Ushuaia Beach Club, an energetic glamour spot with pumping house music and a five-star culinary selection. Beyond Ushuaïa Ibiza, the gastronomic and entertainment offering becomes a little more budget-friendly, with popular options for younger Ibiza visitors that are more interested in the White Isle’s party scene. Eatery and lounge bar White is a trendy spot for cocktails, while Mumak Tropical invites guests to chill in its hip surroundings with pretty views on the beach and a mouth-watering menu that features Peruvian, Mexican, Jamaican, Moroccon, Indian, Vietnamese and Thai treats. Walk up the street a few more metres away from the sand and you’ll find Dunes, a one-stop-shop bar and restaurant tempting you with healthy juices or tasty cocktails, sharing platters of food plus plenty of games, sports on TV and DJ sets. Bora Bora beach bar is a Playa d’en Bossa institution that has kept young party animals entertained with affordable food, drinks and energetic music for decades, with the neighbouring – and equally famous – Jet Apartments throwing raucous pool parties once a week. A few doors down, the trendy Santos Ibiza and its sister venue Dorado Ibiza have breathed fresh air into the area, offering a mix of funky DJ sets and live gigs in stylish surroundings. A few metres off the beach, those in need of a little retail therapy will find a mini hippy market in the pedestrianized area just behind Dorado Ibiza.
