The rise and rise of the beach club in Ibiza is a real phenomenon. Appealing to a cool and cosmopolitan clientele, follow our guide to the best on the island.

Blue Marlin – Cala Jondal

Perhaps the most famous of the beach clubs, the Blue Marlin has become synonomous with the daytime party scene. Each year thousands of people flock here to enjoy the food, ambience and of course the infamous parties.

El Chiringuito – Es Cavallet

Another stalwart on the scene, El Chiringuito’s enduring popularity could be down to the stylish decor, attentive staff or excellent food. Whatever the reason, this luxurious venue is a firm favourite amongst visiting celebrities and supermodels.

Beach House – Playa d’en Bossa

A new challenger to the beach club title, Beach House opened in Summer 2014 and has already proved to be a worthy contender. Part of the El Chiringuito family, the food lives up to the reputation of its sister restaurant, and the place has become a favourite with Sunday party goers, who flocked there each Sunday this summer to enjoy the Guy Gerber Rumours parties, arguably one of the best new events this season.

Ocean Beach – S’Arenal – San Antonio

Undoubtedly the most glamorous spot on the San Antonio scene, Ocean Beach has become famous for its wild and outrageous daytime parties. Expect to see several TOWIE cast members here on any given day during the summer!

Amante – Cala Llonga

Perched high above the bay of Sol d’en Serra, offering spectacular views across the coast, Amante is sumptuous and stylish. A popular wedding venue, it boasts one of the best restaurants on the island. The opening and closing parties each season are the stuff of island legend, attracting hundreds of people every time.

 Sa Trinxa – Salinas

One of the original beach clubs, Sa Trinxa attracts a bohemian and eclectic crowd who flock to the small shack at the far end of Salinas beach year after year. Named after the DJ Jon Sa Trinxa, the tunes and the vibe are distinctly laid back and ‘hippy’.

Sands – Playa D’en Bossa

Part owned by Carl Cox, who hosts his legendary birthday party here each summer, Sands is an Ibiza institution. The varied menu, fabulous location and friendly staff make it a firm favourite for holidaymakers and locals alike.

Cotton Beach Club – Cala Tarida

Overlooking the turquoise waters of Cala Tarida, Cotton Beach’s all white decor theme has made it another popular venue for weddings and private parties. One of the most luxurious locations on the southwest coast, with its own private stretch of beach, it has become one of THE places to see and be seen.

Cala Bassa Beach Club – Cala Bassa

Stylish, comfortable day beds and a choice of 4 dining options have made CBBC a firm favourite on the beach club scene. Add to this the unrivalled views over the sparkling bay, and where better to relax and let the stresses of the day just wash away?

Babylon Beach – Punta Sa Caleta

An elegant and eclectic vibe makes Babylon Beach stand out from the crowd. Since its opening in 2012, this has become the coolest hangout in the North. Offering simple but quality food, relaxed yet funky music, and a purpose built children’s adventure playground, Babylon is perfect for party people and families alike.
