Ibiza is a small but very famous island in the Mediterranean Sea. The distance from one end of Ibiza to the other is only 45 kilometers, but how amazing they are: luxurious beaches, trendy clubs, luxury hotels, high mountains, rocky cliffs, picturesque valleys, and the best service ever.

The most popular resort in Ibiza is its capital called Ibiza or Eivissa. The city attracts visitors with beaches with fine yellow sand, a sea with gentle waves, and non-stop parties. All the most important and bright events take place on the central Eivissa beach called Playa d'en Bossa, so if you are coming here for relaxation and dancing all night long, you will not regret it.

The second most popular resort is San Antonio Abad. It is located on the seashore, 17 km from the capital. Here you will find great beaches, good hotels, slightly less luxurious, but no less vibrant parties, and, last but not least, lower prices.

In search of privacy and silence, go to Portinatx with its wonderful scenery and Mediterranean restaurants. Another good option for outdoor recreation is the resort of Santa Eulalia del Río. Here you can sunbathe on the spacious sandy beaches, admire the yachts in the port, walk through the hills and forests, and if you want fun, the capital of Ibiza is half an hour away.

This article talks about the most popular resorts in Ibiza, the best beaches on the island, the most fashionable clubs, and the most comfortable hotels.

Music from the best DJs, dancing from sunset to sunset, popular cocktails, and stunning Mediterranean landscapes, that's what we imagine when we think of Ibiza. And it's all true.

But Ibiza is not only about music and dancing. The city has a beautiful historic center with narrow cobblestone streets and low houses entwined with vines. There are several interesting museums, such as the Museum of Modern Art or the ancient Phoenician Necropolis. And, of course, there are perfect sandy beaches with excellent facilities where you can sunbathe, dive, snorkel, and discover the bright underwater world, eat ice cream, read books, and relax.

How to get to Ibiza

The cheapest flights to Eivissa are from Barcelona, Madrid, and Valencia, so if you are on vacation there, do not miss the opportunity to fly to the island for 20 euros or even less. The flight lasts for about an hour.

You can also reach the island by ferry. The main ports are Valencia, Denia, and Barcelona. The ferry from Denia takes 2-3 hours, the ferry from Valencia takes 5-7 hours, and the ferry from Barcelona takes more than 9 hours. The departure is usually in the evening or at night and in the morning you are already on the island.

Talamanca beach

The city beach named Talamanca lies 1 km from the center of Eivissa. The city port is located nearby, and the Old Town is a little further, so it is easy to get there. The famous Pacha nightclub is also located next to the Talamanca beach.

The beach is quite big. Its length is about a kilometer, and its width is twenty meters, so you can easily find a place by the water or in the shade.

The beach has everything you need for a comfortable stay by the sea: changing cabins, showers, and restrooms, rental of sun loungers and umbrellas (6 euros per piece), several cafes and beach bars, entertainment for children, sports grounds and rentals of equipment for outdoor activities.

The slope to the water is gentle, which is very convenient for children. The beach is perfect for swimming in the sea with a mask and snorkel, but there is one minus called algae. But this problem sometimes takes place on all the beaches of Mallorca.

Best hotels in Talamanca beach

If you want to live next to the sea and at the same time not far from the walking streets and clubs, Talamanca beach is what you need. The most comfortable hotels are the four-star Hotel Argos Ibiza, with spacious rooms and gorgeous sea views, and the Hotel Simbad Ibiza & Spa, where you can relax your body and soul.

Well, the best hotel on the beach is the luxurious Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay, where you can rent a room decorated in the traditional Balearic style of Ibiza. This hotel offers sea access directly from the hotel and a rooftop swimming pool and sun terrace with beautiful views of the sea and the city.

At Figuretes beach, you can sit right by the water or relax in the shade of palm trees that grow along the coast.

The most popular activities on Eivissa beaches are all kinds of water attractions: diving, snorkeling, and jet ski. You may rent all necessary equipment or buy a special Beach Hopping Cruise with Paddleboard, Food, & Drinks or Snorkeling and SUP Paddle, Beach and Cave Cruise.
