If you love to eat great food whilst looking out across beautiful waters and landscape then there are some idyllic beach restaurants across Ibiza. There are many great chefs who come to work in Ibiza to ensure that the island is not short of fine dining options at the luxurious beach club venues. Here are some of the great beach restaurants:

Tucked away in the hidden cove of Sol d’en Serra is the Amante beach restaurant. This is not a place that you would simply stumble across, since the only route is via a rocky footpath; but the trip is more than worthwhile when you discover all that Amante has to offer. Due to its stunning location, views and excellent facilities, Amante is a very popular wedding venue. However, it is just as idyllic for dropping by to grab a cold, refreshing cocktail – and it also hosts regular movie nights under the stars, a cinema experience like no other!

Head Chef Carlos Fernandez works hard to ensure the menu offers a really healthy selection of dishes, sourcing local and organic produce and serving Mediterranean- and Spanish-inspired food. Those who drop by for yoga also tend to stay on to enjoy the healthy breakfast sessions throughout the week.

You simply must visit Amante at night to appreciate how beautiful a place it is. Having won several awards and received high acclaim for fine dining, Amante is easily one of the best beach restaurants on Ibiza … if not the best.

Over on the east coast of Ibiza, at Cala Nova, you will find Atzaro Beach. The restaurant is a very popular option for families, as well as those in the area who like to enjoy the beach without the hustle and bustle of the main resorts.

Seafood lovers will tell you that the menu here is one of the best around, with fresh fish, squid, lobster and crayfish to choose from amongst many other tempting dishes. You can also opt for the ever-popular paella, or the range of tasty tapas.

With live bands and musicians, you can have a great day out at Atzaro Beach and then continue the fun into the evening. For the ultimate relaxation experience, you can even book in for a massage – all that partying and sun can take its toll on your weary muscles, after all!

Set on the sand at the very heart of Ibiza’s biggest and busiest beach, Playa den Bossa, is the hottest name in Ibiza beach restaurants: Beachouse Ibiza.

Serving up daily breakfast and lunch direct to your luxe daybed, chic sofa or sophisticated wooden table on the terrace, Beachouse brings a welcome new level of service, quality and alfresco ambience to this ever-evolving area – and is also available after dark for private events.

Fresh juices, bespoke cocktails and an expertly selected wine list are all part of the Beachouse Ibiza experience.

Cala Jondal Bay is home to the noted restaurant Blue Marlin. Open daily through the holiday season, this venue is one of the places to seen on the island. Rub shoulders with the rich and famous as you sample fine cuisine with stunning views.

With peerless service and luxury facilities, there is certainly a real element of class and sophistication at Blue Marlin.

In Cala Tarida, the Cotton Beach Club is one of the top attractions. Serving high quality dishes throughout the day, this is a great option for foodies – and also for anyone who likes to experience the more luxurious lifestyle.

With chic, white furniture to relax on and comfortable day beds to sunbathe on, the Cotton Beach Club is the perfect place to spend a day in the sun. It is also one of the best places to come and relax in the evening and enjoy the amazing views across the sea. Cotton Beach offers a real culinary treat, with international dishes inspired by Thailand, Vietnam, Cuba and Morocco. If you like to try different flavours, and steer away from the standard restaurant meals, then the menu at Cotton Beach should impress you and your taste buds.

Head up to the rooftop terrace to dine amongst the most stunning views, or take in the sky at night. The beach is a lovely private and sandy area that is great for avoiding the dangerous rocks that you can find on some of the other beaches. The restaurant enjoys all the facilities that you need to have a fantastic day and an even better night. Cotton Beach is a great place to come and watch the sun set whilst enjoying a drink, or party into the evening – and sometimes on into the early hours if you feel like making a night of it.

Now in its tenth season, El Chiringuito has become increasingly popular over the years. Head to Playa Es Cavallet to experience a little piece of heaven at this luxurious location: relax all day in the sun, try the divine cocktail list and treat yourself to the Mediterranean dishes that have both a French and Ibicenco influence. The lobster and calamari are essential orders for seafood lovers.

With views across to Formentera and Dalt Vila, the area provides a tranquil spot for relaxing whilst the team look after you. Resident DJs Mr. Doris, Andy Baxter and Mina will keep you entertained and the subtle lighting and luxurious setting make the venue perfect for a romantic evening or somewhere to have fun with friends.

Famous around the world for the iconic Experimental Cocktail Clubs of London, Paris and New York, Experimental has arrived in Ibiza. Set in the beautiful surroundings of Cap des Falco, this is a beach restaurant that you should definitely experiment with.

The fine, locally-inspired cuisine is served throughout the summer season all day long – and includes traditional tapas, a wide selection of seafood and grilled meats to treat your palate. Head Chef Alex Larrea prides himself in sourcing local produce and providing an authentic eating experience for his guests.

To top all this off, you won’t be disappointed with the drinks menu either. As the Experimental Cocktail bars around the world are so renowned, so there is a range of brilliant cocktails to sample here – and it would be rude not to! To get the party started, you can also try the sharer cocktails, which are served in giant conch shells.

Since 1993, the infamous Jockey Club has been a beach restaurant with the spirit of a chiringuito (an outdoor bar). This simple sentence describes the Club’s philosophy of life, and is synonymous with its picture-perfect location, set within the Natural Park of Ses Salines. 

At Jockey Club Salinas you will find all the services and quality of a restaurant without losing the essence of the lively original chiringuitos: a tasty Mediterranean menu, exclusive wine list, breakfast on the beach, sunbeds, a fruit and cocktail bar, DJs, the Jockey shop; all within a friendly atmosphere surrounded by professional staff.

Just three words will suffice to describe the menu: variety, quality and fresh products. Trust us: check out this storied establishment for yourselves!

In a location truly fit for a king – on the cusp of always-sunny Es Cavallet – and serving similarly regal cuisine, it’s no surprise that the philosophy behind the long-serving Ibiza beach restaurant of La Escollera is that the client is royalty!

You want it? You got it. Panoramic views across the Mediterranean Sea, multiple shaded wooden-decked terraces, a cool, open plan indoor dining space, tables in the sand, a chill out lounge area, cocktail bar, the friendliest staff and a warm, family-run vibe … and then there’s the food!

Famous for their paellas, also highly recommended are the wild sea bass in a crust of coarse sea salt from the neighboring salt-flats, and the ‘Gallo San Pedro’ (oven baked John Dory served with Ibicenco-style potatoes). The recipies are based on originals courtesy of owner Daniel Gonzalez’s mother, and have stood the test of time – to date, more than twenty years.

The wonderful Yemania is a beach restaurant that comes with high recommendations. It is located in the stunning Cala Jondal area, and this restaurant and beach club offers a wonderful experience for those looking for great food, and also for people looking to relax and top up the tan. With great music playing all day long, this perfectly situated venue is one of the most well established beach clubs on the island. The menu features a number of highlights, including paellas, fresh fish and a good range of healthy dishes to try. Visting Yemania is an Ibizan experience you won’t regret enjoying.

Aiyanna Ibiza is a true beach restaurant, located enviably on the perfect sands of the Cala shoreline. The sister restaurant of the renowned Amante Ibiza, Aiyanna’s uninterrupted views of the Med are, as you’d expect from this team, complemented by a menu that fuses a contemporary ethos with a creative love of the unexpected.

Refreshing twists on traditional Mediterranean cuisine is the theme here, with all the clean, ckassuc flavours of local Ibizan produce aligned with revitalising superfoods and exciting sharing plates. Provenance matters here: Aiyanna boasts its own organic vegetable garden, and the fish and meat are sourced fresh from the island’s finest providers.

The commitment to health and wellbeing doesn’t stop at the menu, either: daily yoga sessions with a seaview, and healthy buffer breakfasts to follow, make Aiyanna a one-stop shop for diners conscious of the needs of both body and soul. This extra dimension to the Aiyanna experience follows through to its fresh and healthy juices and suite of sixty beach beds, as well as its full-moon dinners, and the restaurants patronage of local artists and musicians.

Aiyanna’s natural décor, which focuses on harmonising with its idyllic surroundings, makes it a glorious place for dinner – and for special events like weddings, too. This is a restaurant to relax within.

Surprisingly close to Ibiza Town lies the hidden beach of S’Estanyol. Nestled within this central-yet-secluded spot is Cala Bonita, a restaurant with a charm all its own. Equal parts refined and rustic, this restaurant has a romatic atmosphere that few other venues enjoy: with glorious sands stretching down to the glittering Med, it is a very special place to dine.

Executive Chef Pau Barba has garnered a much-deserved international reputation for the sophistication of his menus, and Cala Bonita’s is no different. Focusing on fresh and local produce, the restaurant’s specialty is seafood, serving up creative iterations of traditional favourites.

The charcoal and wood-fired grill is a centrepiece of the Cala Bonita experience, and contributes hugely to the quality of the menu’s meat and fish dishes. But the hand-crafted cocktails, too, and the wine list has been lovingly curated to complement perfectly each and every dish. A midday brunch leads naturally into into late lunches, which in turn become candle-lit dinners from 8pm. From sun-kissed afternoons to moon-lit evenings, every moment is magical at Cala Bonita – and diners can stay until 1.30am.

A discreet part of the restaurant is open for private dining. Groups of up to thirty can enjoy Petit Bonita’s completely personalised menus. Couples and smaller groups, meanwhile, will star out in wonder from the terrace at a glorious beach-based panorama. Few dining experiences are dreamier than Cala Bonita.

Santa Eulalia beach boasts some of the finest sands on Ibiza, and its southern extremity lies Chiringuito Blue. This restaurant’s open-sided dining room makes the diners feel part of the glorious beach around them as they enjoy uninterrupted views of the sun-kissed Med. Focus here is on families and relaxation, with chilled-out DJ sets and sofas to relax in. There’s even a very special kids’-only area.

That informal ambience doesn’t mean that the food is secondary. The chef here is the Israeli master Haim Cohen, and Chiringuito Blue’s menu is packed with glorious local produce that is brought alive with Middle Eastern flair. The clarity of the restaurant’s flavours, created through an emphasis on pure ingredients and judicious use of herbs and spices, makes for satisfying, memorable meals.  From chickpeas with homemade tahini to the Greek Tzatziki with warm pita bread, every dish – and every handcrafted cocktail – is a must-try.

Take Cohen’s version of araies – a Bedouin dish of chargrilled pita stuffed with herbaceous minced lamb –or his baked fish, pasta, chargrilled free-range chicken for two, or simply his mouth-watering burger: everything is perfect, and there’s a focus on sharing platters, too (though honestly usually two of everything is a good idea!). With numerous vegetarian and vegan options, too, international tastes of all sorts are catered for.

In other words, Chiringuito Blue is a place to feel at home. Even the desserts offer complete satisfaction: the tahini-flavour Carpigiani soft serve ice cream machine is especially worth experiencing. With takeaway coffee, juices and pastries also available to enjoy whilst walking the beach, this is a restaurant where you can spend all day.

Few beaches on Ibiza are as iconic as Benirras beach, and Elements Ibiza therefore boasts a plum spot. It is a restaurant, a lounge, a cocktail bar, a juice bar, a boutique and a treatment plus massage room all in one. All of these aspects of the Elements experience are provided within an ecologically-conscious framework, and the design of this chic beach club establishes a relaxed atmosphere that encourages guests to stay and enjoy it all day.

The Elements menu is the work of head chef Mauro di Mauro, and is an expression of all that is wonderful about Ibizan cuisine. Freshly made organic pasta sits alongside line-caught local fish – and most fruits, vegetables and herbs arrive direct from Elements’ own organic garden. This local provenance is crucial and central to the menu, with local olive oil, beer, salt, chicken and homemade breads all present and correct.

Elements’ beach location makes it an ideal base to spend a day by the Med. Music is first-rate, and the treatments available in The Heal, Element’s specialised treatment room, offer the perfect complement to the hearty and healthy dishes. Juices are detoxifying – and even the slightly naughty cocktails are also very nice! detoxifying juices or naughty cocktails. One Sundays, Elements becomes even more special, with vibrant celebrations featuring exciting talent of all kinds.

Elements offer a park-and-ride option for guests, but those with bookings can park on-site.

Pura Vida Beach Restaurant has for years now been a favourite on the island for locals and visitors alike. And for good reason: here is a restaurant its guests to rest, recuperate … and enjoy. Its idyllic location on the serene cove of Playa Niu Blau means that Pura Vida’s guests can enjoy the absolute best of Ibiza’s famed east coast – and its beautiful traditional décor of shaded terrace, plush sofas and polished wood tables all overlook the glorious seas and sands of this special spot.

The menu is no slouch, either. It offers up a suite of options all in the tradition of the Ibizan beach restaurant. Breakfasts feature tostadas and tomato, avocado and Iberian ham; lunch and dinner featured simple, gorgeous dishes such as whole baked sea bass in a salt crust, chicken with herb butter and nut marinade, Thai chicken salad and a mouth watering beef fillet.  Fresh seafood are of course a centrepiece, including grilled calamari, ceviche or grilled whole prawns. In other words, the menu has it all – but keeps its flavours gloriously pure.

In-keeping with this classic approach to Ibizan beach dining, Pura Vida achieves an informal, inviting and obliging atmosphere. Children are welcome, and have a menu all their own – as well as a kids’ club and a beach too explore – and adults can focus on a leisurely meal that places the Ibizan way of life front and centre. There’s even shopping available: the restaurant’s boutique offers some beautiful clothing and accessories that will help you remember this special experience.

Fine dining, hand-crafted wine lists, cocktails to remember: Pura Vida is a beach restaurant that allows the simple things the space to shine, providing all this service with friendly professionalism … and the real taste of relaxed Ibizan living.
