Who can resist the magical combination of sea, sand and delicious food and drink? The sound of the waves lapping the shore, the feeling of silky sand between your toes, spectacular views of mountains dropping dramatically into the sea, all these make the perfect backdrop to savoring a meal or aperitif while enjoying the company of family and good friends. There are plenty of beautiful spots on Ibiza where you can enjoy views and food. The following are five of the most popular.
Follow a rocky path to Amante Ibiza, a charming restaurant nestled between mountains that overlook Sol Den Serra bay. Offering such dishes as fish croquettes, squid ink risotto and fresh grilled seafood, you can enjoy fine dining while marveling at the spectacular views of the mountains paying court to the sparkling Mediterranean sea.
Nikki Beach Ibiza
Nikki Beach is located in Santa Eularia on Ibiza’s East coast. Guests can dine under a covered area facing the swimming pool or at tables shaded by strategically placed umbrellas on the beach. Live music and entertainment, generous platters of sushi and seafood as well as colorful cocktails enhance the festive atmosphere. Palm trees and Ibiza’s ubiquitous pine trees add to the beachy ambience while the Mediterranean sea nibbles gently at the sand.
Cotton Beach Club
Located on Cala Tarida on the southwest coast, Cotton Beach is the epitome of the “white island style” with its white on white decor. Situated on a cliff above a private beach, with fabulous views of the Mediterranean sea as a backdrop, this restaurant offers diners the choice of open air dining on the terrace, dining indoors or enjoying the spectacular views from a rooftop terrace. Whatever your dining preference, you will enjoy the many culinary options offered, including sushi, salads and seafood.
With a cool palette of white, green and blue, Atzaró Beach is an inviting setting where tables shaded by a woven grass awning are interspersed with potted palms and set against the azure blue sea. Turquoise cushions ensure guests’ comfort while sharing platters of grilled seafood and other dishes. While their focus is on vegan and vegetarian dishes you’ll find classic Ibizan cuisine such as paella as well. For an even more relaxed dining experience, check out Atzaró Chirinquito, a shack on the beach where you can order burgers, pizza, sandwiches and other casual food without losing your place in the sand.
The daybeds and sun loungers at Beachhouse Ibiza in Playa d’en Bossa are ideal for relaxing with a glass of champagne or a refreshing smoothie. Offering a choice of dining on the beach or at the indoor restaurant, you can start the day with breakfast, choosing among croissants, eggs and smoothies or enjoy a leisurely lunch designed around classic Mediterranean cuisine including pasta and fresh seafood. Every weekday morning you can participate in free yoga classes on the beach and there is a Little Beachhouse Kids Club which is perfect for families with children.
