Food & Drinks

Ibiza Harbor:

On both sides of Ibiza harbor, you can find all kinds of restaurants and pubs from cheap to classy.

In Marina Botafoc, find a snack or a drink in the Capuccino Café. As for food, a lot of restaurants there but a bit pricey.

Our favorite the Sushi Point: asian food and great cocktails with a DJ mixing all night live.

In the old harbor, at the foot of the old town, better go for a drink in one of the bars, the show is everywhere on the street right in front of you.

You can even find a few poles on the terraces like at the Foly’s – this is also the place where we get our disco tickets, btw…

2 favorites there for food: the Formentera for its amazing Paella and the San Telmo for Hot Fudge Chocolate & Orange Crepes.

 

Special insider tips:

La Brasa:

Near Plaza del Parque in Ibiza Town, a beautiful garden with a wooden grill.

 

El Zaguan:

Directly at the exit of Eivissa Harbour, this is a little Tapas place very friendly and typically local.

Great for snacks or big meals with a group.

 

Fusion:

On Figueretas promenade, a fusion cuisine of Spanish and Balinese food.

Low prices and great cocktails.

Even a “polable” roof…

 

the Talamanca:

Little Tapas bar on the beach, directly next to the hotel (5 min walk).

Very friendly atmosphere for a snack nearby.
Bambuddha Groove:

On the road of San Juan, in a middle of a bamboo forest, enjoy Asian fusion cuisine in a lounge atmosphere.

Classy dress code required.

 

Casa Colonial:

On the road of Santa Eularia on top of a hill, the most romantic French restaurant of the island.

Have some food in a flowery garden with candle lights.

 

Atzaro:

Lost in the Ibizenco country side, a high-class spa and restaurant, huge gardens, cocktail bar and exquisite food.

A full meal might be a bit more expensive but the fresh squeezed cocktails and the beauty of the view make the drive worth it…

Atzaro-3

El Ayoun:

1001 nights atmosphere with fine food, a club and good music.

Little plus: they have 2 poles!

Prices a bit expensive though… Classy dress code once again.

Near the airport, the most famous beach on music videos, long sandy with a nude area on the left (after a bit of walking) and nice beach clubs.

Near San Antonio City, very famous for its Sunset on the see and its lounge DJs.

Playa dem Bossa:
Between Salinas and Ibiza Town, the famous party area of Ushuaïa, Bora Bora, Space and other daily clubbing on the beach…

Talamanca:
This is the beach under the hotel. If you follow it to the right, you’ll find a bunch of poles for pictures before arriving at Ibiza Harbor and the city.
If you follow the coast to the left, there is a restaurant on the rocks and you can try cave hunting (ask us for details when you get there).

Cala D’hort:
North-West, near San Josep, the most beautiful view of es Vedra Island and a great place for Paella and fresh Lobsters.

Aguas Blancas: 
East, after Santa Eularia, the “Mud beach”: a long sandy beach with clay oozing from the cliffs. Bring a spoon and a bottle of water to get the best bodypaint of your life…

Benirras:
North after San Miguel, the weekly Sunday-night drummer’s party. All the drums of the island meet there to play until the sun sets. Be there before 3pm if you want to find a parking space.

Formentera: 

The nearby island, you can see it from Ibiza. Boats and ferries are driving back and forth all day.

It’s in our program each year during the summer camp to hop over and spend the day in its crystal turquoise waters.

Ibiza

The picturesque island of Ibiza belongs to the Baleares and offers a beautifully mild to hot climate, which puts it on the map for sun seekers.

With 210km of coastline you are sure to find your spot at the sea, no matter if you prefer long sandy beaches or rugged secluded bays. The inward landscape is dominated by gentle rolling hills and dotted with homesteads and fincas.

– In the 1960s Ibiza was popular with escapists and hippies, which still adds a certain atmosphere to the island.

You can find hippie beaches, markets and even communities in the north of the island.

And every sunday night, the drums are playing for the sunset in Benirras beach.

Insidertips

– Since the 1990s clubs and discos with famous DJs built up a world reputation. Half of the island is grounded with party tourists from June till September.

The opening and closing parties of the different clubs are one of the highlights of the summer.

For the full moon party, these cultures merge together to create something uniquely “Ibizenco”.

Borabora

Beach parties are also common all day long, especially in Playa dem Bossa, where most beach clubs can be found lining up on the shore.
