Ibiza is a dynamic island known for its contrasting atmospheres from day to night.

Whether you’re soaking in the sun by the turquoise waters or dancing until dawn, there’s something for everyone at any hour. This guide provides you with the best ways to enjoy both the calm daylight hours and the lively nocturnal scenes of Ibiza.

Start with serenity

Begin your day at the tranquil Playa de Ses Salines, located in the south of the island. Known for its clear waters and fine sandy beach, it’s perfect for a morning swim or a stroll along the shore. For breakfast, head to Cappuccino Grand Cafe in Marina Botafoch. The view, the ambience and the delicious breakfasts will be the perfect start to your day.

Explore and experience

As the sun climbs, explore Dalt Vila, Ibiza’s historic old town. This UNESCO World Heritage site offers a glimpse into the island's rich history with its cobbled streets and ancient architecture. Take a guided walking tour to learn about the cultural significance of landmarks like the Cathedral of Santa Maria and the archaeological museum.

For lunch, enjoy seaside dining at Amante Ibiza, nestled in a stunning cliffside cove near Cala Llonga. This restaurant offers Mediterranean cuisine with spectacular views over Sol d'en Serra bay, making it a scenic spot to relax and enjoy some local seafood.

Sunset and sensory delights

As evening approaches, head to the famed sunset strip in San Antonio for one of Ibiza’s most magical experiences. Café Mambo is a popular spot where you can enjoy cocktails while watching the sun dip below the horizon. The ambiance here, with DJs conducting the evening as the sun goes down, seamlessly transitions from day to night.

Dive into the island’s famous nightlife

No guide to Ibiza would be complete without recommending its world-renowned nightlife. Start your night at one of the many bars in Ibiza town before heading to Pacha, the island’s oldest super club. For a more underground vibe, DC-10 offers a raw, energetic experience with some of the best techno DJs in the world.

If clubbing isn’t your scene, consider a nightcap at The Standard in Ibiza Town or Café Caleta, a hidden gem in Santa Eulalia serving up the best cocktails.

From serene mornings to electric nights, Ibiza offers a unique round-the-clock experience that caters to all tastes and preferences. Whether you’re here for the natural beauty or the dynamic dance floors, Ibiza ensures that every hour is filled with something extraordinary.
