In Ibiza there is a moment of the day that is almost a sacred ritual and this is the aperitif at sunset. It’s a good idea to have a drink. You can not say you have lived Ibiza if you forgot to celebrate the puesta del solwhich is a real show and always ends with the applause of its audience.
The aperitif at sunset is an integral part of Ibiza life and there are some famous places, real temples of this ritual
The aperitif at sunset of Sant Antoni de Portmany
The Sant Antoni area is one of the best known areas of Ibiza, especially for the rather intense evening nightlife. This is the area of Ibiza most frequented by English tourists. Sant Antonihas one of the most important ports of Ibiza and is one of the most knowning place for the sunset.
Cafè del Mar
One of the best-known place is the Cafe del Mar restaurant/lounge, a real institution in Ibiza. Booking is essential to ensure the sea view. You can book your table on the official website but remember: the price depends on the location so you are obliged to spend a minimum in drinks.
For example, for the first row, in front of the sea you will have to spend about 45 euros per head in drinks in high season.
Another very nice place to enjoy the aperitif at sunset, even spending a little less, is the Fresh pub, with its informal and youthful atmosphere.
In Ibiza the sun sets rather late, around 21:30 so you could also take advantage to have dinner at sunset. In addition to the Sea Cafe, you can also dine at another beautiful restaurant, La Torre,really scenic, one of the most beautiful in Thea… but even here the reservation is mandatory.
There are many places on the bay or on the pier where you can enjoy the sunset but also remember that the puesta del sol of Ibiza is not denied to anyone, so enjoy this moment just sitting on the rocks drinking your Estrella Galicia.
Aperitif at Es vedrà
Definitely one of the most popular places in Ibiza: we are near Cala d’Hortand after having crossed by car a pine forest we find ourselves in front of this beautiful rocky and uninhabited island. But Es Vedrà, the dragon-shaped island is not a simple island; it deals with of one of the strongest magnetic fields in the world as well as a very strong energy field, this means that compasses and radar seem to be “disoriented” in its presence. In front of this island, you get lost to admire the colors of the puesta del sol and you get lost to imagine stories of nymphs and sirens that according to legend inhabit this magical place. The sun drowning in the sea, the scent of salt, dust and Mediterranean vegetation, silence.
Es vedrà is almost a mystical place, the place to find silence in this noisy island full of life. Why did we suggest an aperitif at sunset here? Because there will be no need for a white table, the right music and glass glasses. Because All you need is a cold beer or maybe a fresh mojito. Enjoy the true essence of Ibiza here.
You will love Es vedrà see and become for you such a magical place, a sort of temple where you will want to take refuge at sunset.
You can enjoy the magical dragon-shaped cliff from a high perspective or that of Cala d’Hort.
Cala d’hort Cala d’hort is a wonderful cove in front of Es vedrà from which you can enjoy your aperitif at sunset, sitting on the white sand, listening only to the sound of the waves, without thinking about anything. Cala d’hort is always very crowded, but the only problem will be just parking; when you are on the beach you will just need a small cutout of sand on which to spread your towel, then it will be the magic of es Vedrà the sees to make everything perfect. Forget your mobile phone, fall asleep in the sun, refresh yourself in the crystal clear waters where fish and octopus play and when the sun starts its show, just enjoy it.
Cala Benirras is located in the north of the island. We advise you to enjoy the colors of the sky at sunset here on Sunday, when the famous drums party takes place.
Percussionists and neo hippies gather in Benirras with the sound of tribal rhythms celebrate the sunset.
Our last aperitif at sunset in this magical island is in Cala Tarida.
This location is a favorite of Italians, especially by families and for this reason it could be considered more peaceful.
From Cala Tarida you can enjoy one of the most unique sunsets of Ibiza. The beach is accessed after descending a long flight of stairs, the weak winds of the bay caress the white sand while from the water emerge rocky platforms on which someone sets to immortalize the sun. In this area there are some very glamorous and famous clubs of Ibiza such as the Cotton Beach Club but we guarantee that you just have to buy in one of the beach bars an Estrella Damm, to enjoy every puesta del sol on this magical island.
