Weekend in Ibiza
The island is certainly not a destination for a short vacation. It could, however, be an ideal weekend in Ibiza, perhaps during a holiday in the nearby Balearic Islands. Here, then, are the main things to do and see during a weekend in Ibiza
DAY 1 WEEKEND IN IBIZA
As soon as you check in at your hotel, one of the important operations is the rental of a scooter or a car. Much depends on the structure in which you are staying. The best depths of the island, in fact, are in the area after San Antonio; the places of nightlife (Pacha, Ushuaia,) are, instead, all in the port area or Playa D’en Bossa.
With your backpacker, we recommend reaching Cala Comte, just under 10 km from San Antonio. Get ready to admire splendid and unforgettable views. The creeks, in all, are 3, divided from the Chiringuito to the center; opposite is the islet of Varadero, uninhabited and declared a protected natural area.
Once you have chosen the right cove, you can dive into the beautiful waters, swimming in one of the most beautiful depths of the Balearics, with sand mixed with pebbles. From the shore it is possible to swim with lots of fish species. Cala Comte, despite being particularly crowded, is one of the Top Balearic beaches.
The Cala Comte Chiringuito is among the Coolest of Ibiza; few tables available but, thanks to the position, it will allow you to relax with a cerveza or a good dish, admiring the whole panorama in front of you. From here you take valuable pictures. The prices are quite high but, all this, is rewarded by the atmosphere that you will live; from 5pm the DJ offers excellent chill-out music.
Next stop, practically obligatory, is the Café Del Mar, or alternatively, the Café Mambo, both centrally located in San Antonio. Here, from 7 pm, the sunset is expected (this side of the island enjoys a privileged position to admire the sun that goes out into the sea) to the rhythm of music. Both bars have a terrace overlooking the sea, an impeccable atmosphere and top service. All to pamper you until sunset! They are a few hundred meters away from each other.
This is the island of fun but also of relaxation, for a walk to the port of Eivissa (Ibiza City). Of course this is the island of nightlife and entertainment. It is impossible to spend a weekend in Ibiza without having set foot in at least one of its renowned nightclubs. More info from here.
If you are interested in a relatively quiet evening, thanks to the fatigue of the outward journey, we recommend a dinner at the Port of Ibiza. Here, you can enjoy excellent Paella, a dish. Later, as long as you are in condition, we recommend a Cocktail in one of the many bars that rise in the alleys of the port of Ibiza.
DAY 2 WEEKEND IN IBIZA
Second day of the weekend in Ibiza to discover Cala Salada and Cala Saladeta, about 20 minutes drive from San Antonio. We advise you not to arrive late, since, being among the most appreciated coves of the island, the parking lot fills up soon.
When you arrive at the entrance, you will begin a very characteristic descent, through trees, and lush vegetation, until you reach this bay. The view from here is nothing short of spectacular.
Cala Salada is the first inlet. In case you are athletic enough to continue, on your right you can walk along a rocky pass in the direction of Cala Saladeta. In our opinion, it is more “intimate” and suggestive than the previous one. Are you particularly fond of thrills and adrenaline? Between the two Cale, overlooking the splendid turquoise sea, you can try your hand at splendid dives!
To the left of Cala Salada there is a small restaurant and a Chiringuito that offers snacks and drinks to cool you off from the heat.
For an alternative afternoon, you could visit Sant’Eularia des Riu. From San Antonio it is about 30 minutes by car. Overlooking the sea, Sant’Eularia is an alternative to the crowds of the port of Ibiza; park your vehicle in one of the narrow streets that characterize this village.
Sant’Eularia is a lovely place, with lots of bars, restaurants, ice cream parlors and shops; you can also buy unique and niche items, from clothing to craftsmanship. The main square where the municipality resides is very accurate, with a beautiful English garden and a large fountain; continuing, leaving the pretty little square behind you, you arrive on the seafront of Sant’Eularia.
It is extremely pleasant to spend an afternoon in this very characteristic little town, with a splendid promenade dotted with tall palm trees to shelter from the sun. Refresh yourself in one of the many cafes and restaurants in the area.
For dinner time, in San Antonio, head to S’avaradero. It is a restaurant located at the end of the promenade along the pier, which offers delicious typical Spanish dishes, and Mediterranean seafood cuisine; the cost is average in Ibiza. Absolutely to try the sea Paella.
For the after dinner, it would be almost impossible not to get carried away by one of the many parties in Ibiza clubs. Amnesia, Hï, Pacha, Privilege … there is only the embarrassment of the choice for a wild night. Especially if this were to be the last night of the weekend in Ibiza.
For those who are looking for something more intimate, we recommend a drink at Cafe ’del Mar, not far from the S’avaradero restaurant.
DAY 3 WEEKEND IN IBIZA
Try not to leave the island without having a look at the splendid Cala Bassa beach.
Cala Bassa is located about 9 kilometers from Sant’Antonio di Portmany, between Penyal and Cap de la Bassa; this beautiful beach of soft white sand is characterized by a wide shoreline, about 200 meters long, set in a wide inlet, with one of the clearest seas on the island.
For those who have more time available, we recommend taking a look at our pages on Ibiza. Among art, culture, nightlife and beautiful beaches, the choice is really wide. Have a nice weekend in Ibiza.
