Sunset Bars in Ibiza
Over the years, Ibiza has become as famous for its sunsets as its nightlife. What better way to kickstart your night out than a beautiful sunset with the backdrop of Balearic beats? Silence descends as the sun meets the sea and disappears to applause and celebration.
The majority of the more well-known sunset bars are in San Antonio on the famous sunset strip, but there are other fantastic places to enjoy a must-see experience on any Ibiza holiday.
The Sunset Strip, San Antonio
The best way to get to the sunset strip is to walk along the paseo from the harbour in San Antonio. As you follow the coast walk the row of bars will come into view.
Incorporating the bars Savannah, Café del Mar, Mambo, and Mint, the sunset strip gives unparalleled open views across the sea to the island of Conejera, where the sun eventually sets.
Expect world class DJs spinning chilled beats as sunset approaches, adding to the crackling atmosphere of anticipation as the sun inches its way towards the sea. All of the bars offer excellent food and cocktails but be aware they are very pricey! A cheaper way is to buy your drinks from a local shop and make your way to the rocks in front of the bars and enjoy the experience from there.
Sunset Ashram, Cala Conte
Seen by many as THE place to watch the sunset, Sunset Ashram is located as close to the sea as possible and is fashioned from the sandstone it perches on. As the sun goes down over small islets piercing the sea, enjoy Mediterranean/ Asian fusion food in surroundings that sigh ‘relax’. A beautiful setting.
Elements Ibiza, Benirras
Another extremely popular bar on an extremely popular beach. Benirras is famous for its drummers who ‘drum the sun down’ every night to the delight of all who witness it. A true party atmosphere continues in Elements as the DJ plays until the early hours, long after the sun has departed for another day.
Elements offers a superb Mediterranean menu and incorporates a juice bar, lounge bar, boutique and massage room.
Kumharas, San Antonio Bay
Kumharas is the place to watch the sunset in San Antonio bay. It has a multicultural feel with beautifully crafted handmade furniture, chilled music and even a few stalls offering local handmade goods.
Its unique location offers unobstructed views of the sunset and it regularly has excellent local and well known musicians playing live music from sunset into the night. Such is its appeal that unexpected appearances from the likes of Nightmares On Wax and A Man Called Adam, among others, are common occurances throughout the summer.
