Other top places to watch the sunset in Ibiza
If you prefer to do as the Spanish do, and eat at a later time, there are still lots of magical places to watch the sunset in Ibiza. These include viewpoints, and various beaches dotted around the coast of the island.
Es Vedra viewpoint
Es Vedra is actually a small rocky island just off the coast of Ibiza. The island is uninhabited and shrouded in many myths and legends. The island is rumoured to be magical, home to the sirens of Greek mythology and the third most magnetic place on Earth. You can make up your own mind about the myths, but one thing there is no doubt about, is that the viewpoints of Es Vedra in Ibiza are incredible places to watch the sunset.
Location: Mirador, hippie cave, Torre de Savinar and Atlantis – (Park your car and walk until the cross-road just behind the fence that you see from the parking lot)
Located in the north of the island, Benirrás Beach is a snug cove, famous for its pebble-sand beach and crystal blue sea. This boho-vibe beach is also known for its spectacular sunsets, making it one of the perfect spots to watch the sunset in Ibiza.
Cala Conta, also known as Cala Comte, is one of the most popular beaches in Ibiza. Its stunning landscape offers white sand and turquoise waters mean that during the height of summer, you will find it bustling with tourists. For this reason, the beach is best visited early in the day, or early evening in time for sunset.
Es Codolar Beach
Located in Playa D’en Bossa, Es Codolar Beach is not the prettiest beach in Ibiza, although it is the island’s longest stretch of beach. It is one of the least frequented beaches in Ibiza by tourists, mainly due to there being much nicer beaches on the island. However, it is right under the flight path, which makes it a unique spot in Ibiza to watch the sunset.
Las Salinas Beach
Las Salinas is possibly one of Ibiza’s most iconic beaches, located in the southern tip of the island and surrounded by a protected nature park. At certain times of the year, it is also home to hundreds of flamingos who frequent the salt lakes in the area. This long stretch of glistening sand and equally beautiful blue waters, is a firm favourite among tourists to Ibiza, both for suntanning, relaxing and watching the sunset.
Where to stay in Ibiza?
San Antonio is the popular coastal town in Ibiza for holidaymakers and partygoers. If you’re looking for somewhere fun and vibey, then I highly recommend the concept chain hotels! We stayed at Romeos Motel and Diner which was quirky, fun and the perfect vibe for a girl’s weekend in Ibiza!
