Though it may seem like the party never stops in Ibiza. This Mediterranean island also boasts white sandy beaches, crystalline blue seas, the best paella you will ever eat, brilliant orange groves, and a host of incredible beach activities. Ibiza is simultaneously the number one partying destination in the world, and also laid-back and elegant. It is known for its phenomenal food and picturesque beaches, but it is the parties that make it a popular retreat for luxury travelers. Filled with gorgeous beachside villas, incredible local chefs, and natural wonders (don’t miss out on the natural mud bath!), this island is the ideal Mediterranean getaway.


The vibrant scenery of Cala Xarraca in Ibiza is an unexpected surprise. 

The third largest of the Balearic Islands, Ibiza has some of the most breathtaking beaches and coves in the world. Yacht owners store their boats inside the cliff walls of the Benirras cove, where those without their own yacht will also discover phenomenal snorkeling. Perhaps the most stunning beach, however, is Aigua Blanques, a beach whose name alludes to the white foam that forms in the turquoise water from the gentle breeze. This stunning beach might dissuade modest travellers by being a nudist hot spot, but locals and visitors alike take advantage of the liberty. One of the many benefits of Ibiza is that it is an idyllic vacation spot both for families and for more party oriented groups of friends.


Find your own piece of paradise on Cala Conta Comte beach in Ibiza. 

Families will find Cala Vadella to be a lovely beach. It has soft, powdery sand that leads down into a shallow bay, perfect for children. Furthermore, it is surrounded by pine-clad slopes, which are perfect for meandering walks, or mid-day picnics in the shade. For swimmers, try the Cala Xarraca beach. The crystalline waters of this small, rocky outcropping offer perfect scuba diving conditions, as well as a relative amount of privacy, as it is fairly undiscovered still. To top it all off, there’s a natural mud bath that is said to have healing and restorative powers. This is a secret little gem that is not to be missed.
 
For luxury vacationers of all intents, Cala Jondal is the place to see and be seen. Just a stone’s throw away from the party resort of Playa d’en Bossa, this atmospheric beach is close to some of the best bars and restaurants in all of Ibiza. The beach is laid-back, welcoming, secluded, and is popular with the island’s boat owners. After a day of sunbathing, travelers should be sure to check out the lobster ravioli at the neighboring restaurant, The Blue Marlin.

When the sun sets over the Mediterranean Sea, the sunbathers retreat into some of the best nightclubs in the world, and Ibiza comes to life as the best place to vacation and party. A low-key celebrity favorite (Kate Moss is a frequent patron), Chiringuito is one of the best beach clubs in all of Spain. From the salt-baked sea bass to the delicious Provencal rosé, this idyllic club is perfect for everything from a long Spanish lunch, to an evening glass of sangria. Another, slightly less visible, beach party spot is Amante Beach Club. This award-winning restaurant is literally nestled in a cliff, and features absolutely jaw dropping ocean views. Patrons can enjoy a late-night snack overlooking the moonlit water, or just sup on the finest of cocktails. As far as the real party goes, there are numerous clubs throughout the island that rave until the early hours of the morning. Ibiza is known for its techno-infused nightlife, and the most popular clubs include Space, Privilege (the world’s biggest club), and Ibiza Rocks.

Many Ibiza vacationers, however, end up attending villa parties over clubbing. The affluent island is home to many luxury rental villas, and its residents throw elaborate, luxurious gatherings. Away from the hectic nightclub scene, these parties draw a more select, discrete crowd. Whether you’re traveling with friends, business associates, as a family, or solo, Ibiza has something for every beach lover out there. From secluded beaches to blaring beach clubs, this eclectic, vibrant island is sure to provide an exciting and indulgent setting for your luxury holiday.
