5 of the best places to watch the sunset on Ibiza

One of the main reasons why Ibiza is so popular, is because of its magnificent sunsets.

There’s something very special about watching the eternal ball of fire, slowly fading ‘into’ the Mediterranean waters for another night.

It gives us a sense of realisation and peace at the same time.

A very humbling experience, in a world full of noise and motion.

In this blog we’ve named some of our absolute favourite spots to watch the famous Ibiza sunset from.

1. ‘The Sunset Strip’ – San Antonio

The sunset strip does exactly what it says on the tin.

It offers spectacular, uninterrupted views. Along a paseo, in front of some of the most famous bars on the island.

If you’re into your legendary DJs and dance music, then here is where you’ll find the pre-party hot spots.

From the iconic Café Del Mar, Café Mambo and Space ‘Eat and Dance’, to name but a few.

If you’re into a more peaceful experience, then we highly recommend Golden Buddha at the end of the strip.

A chilled, unpretentious restaurant, with spacious alfresco-dining and glorious scenery.

Or, you can always find a spot on the rocks near the sea, and enjoy it for free!

2. Cala Conta

Cala Conta is by far, one of the most popular beaches on the island.

During the summer months you’ll struggle to find a place to lay your towel on the beach!

But once the afternoon comes to a close, people start to head off back to their hotels and villas, to get ready for the night ahead.

This is now one of the best times to visit.

The sunsets are simply beautiful.

And on windier days, you’ll get to enjoy that added ‘wow’ factor. It’s like something from a movie.

If you fancy a tipple and a bite to eat then you can always pop into Sunset Ashram, and admire it from the comfort of your seat.

3. Kumharas – Cala de Bou

Tucked away in the bay of San Antonio you’ll find Kumharas. A lovely, waters-edge venue that’s been open for 27 years.

It’s the ideal place to relax over dinner and a glass of wine, whilst simultaneously enjoying the golden glow pre-sundown.

The Ibicencan-styled, rustic restaurant offers nightly entertainment during the season.

From traditional Flamenco to live music and local DJs.

Welcoming people from all over the globe, and catering to all, including families with young children.

It’s also situated directly behind the rocky ‘beach’, where you can alternatively sit and relax outside.

Watch the silhouettes of paddle boarders and kayakers in the distance, along with the glistening ripples of the sun-reflecting waves.

Simply stunning.



4. 4. Mirador des Vedra

The view point overlooking the magnificent Es Vedrá is by far, one of the most iconic sunset spots in the world.

Surrounded by myths and legend, this ginormous, 400m, mesozoic limestone rock has been featured in a number of films, including South Pacific (1962).

A favourite for locals, tourists and those in favour of a more spiritual way of living.

It’s said that Es Vedrá is the third most magnetic place on earth.

Some say it’s a myth. Others swear by it.

With the mystery surrounding it, it’s no wonder that the sunsets make this location even more mesmerising.

5. Sa’Talaia

If you want to experience the sunset from a height, then Sa’Talaia is the place to go.

The tallest mountain on the island stands at 457m, and offers panoramic views over Ibiza, Formentera, Es Vedrá and towards the mainland.

You can drive up to the top, however many people choose to hike up there instead. It’s a pretty straight forward (although steep) walk up, however only really suitable for those feeling fit and healthy.

So there you have it.
