ibiza coves

For sunset lovers, the island of Ibiza is a privileged place to contemplate an authentic spectacle of light and colour as the sun disappears into the waters of the Mediterranean Sea. After the rainy days, it is the perfect time to contemplate the shades of orange and pink offered by the Ibizan sunset, which can be seen all year round.

One way of getting to know Ibiza is through its sunsets, a route that focuses on the west of the island and offers privileged panoramic views that often draw applause from those who are seeing them for the first time.

Below is a list of magical places to watch the sunset, starting with Cala de Benirrás, located in the north of the island, and reaching the south with the Ses Salines Natural Park. In addition to some unique places so that you don't miss out on this spectacular side of Ibiza.

Benirrás Cove

Every Sunday the sound of drums and kettledrums resounds in Cala de Benirrás, from where one of the most popular sunsets on the island can be observed, accompanied by a hippie market. As a special feature, from this small enclosed bay, protected from the winds, you can watch the sunset with the islet of Cap Bernat in the background, also known as "the finger of God" because of its peculiar elongated shape. The tamborilada and the hippie market usually begin at approximately 6 p.m. on Sundays and in July and August this is one of the most popular events of the year.

Gració Cove

The route around Ibiza continues, this time very close to Sant Antoni de Portmany, where you will find Cala Gració, a small cove just 80 metres long and with fine brown sand. The particular shape of this cove, which is surrounded by rocks and a forest on both sides, makes sunset at Cala Gració an unforgettable moment.

Sant Antoni de Portmany

If you are looking for a more lively sunset, Ses Variades in Sant Antoni de Portmany is the perfect place to enjoy the sunset. On this promenade sunsets are enjoyed from the bars and terraces to the rhythm of chill-out music. Sant Antoni de Portmany also offers many other options for watching the sunset, such as the so-called "beach clubs". Among the most popular is Café del Mar, which since the 1980s has been characterised by offering a sunset linked to music and fun.

Conta Cove

This small cove in the west of the island, which forms part of the Platges de Comte, offers a colourful sunset dotted with the small islands of S'Espartar, Es Bosc and Sa Conillera. All the Ibiza sunset routes in Ibiza pass through this spot, located just 20 minutes from San Antonio de Portmany. That is why there are usually quite a few crowds of tourists during the high season. But all in all, Platges de Comte, whether by day or by night, is one of the places you have to visit in Ibiza.

Tarida Cove

 Cala Tarida is a very busy and touristy beach during the day, ideal for water sports. At sunset, this area of 260 metres long and white sand is perfect due to its large extension for a more intimate and quiet sunset. Ideal for spending a day with the family or practising water sports and extending it to watch the sunset.

Cala d'Hort

They say that the islet of Es Vedrà, visible from Cala d'Hort, is one of the most magical places on Ibiza. Stories and legends aside, the sunset from Cala d'Hort, with the silhouette of the islets of Es Vedrá and Es Vedranell in the background, is one of the snapshots most captured by the cameras of Ibiza's tourists. Cala d'Hort, with its light-coloured natural sand and transparent waters, is one of the unmissable places for anyone who wants to discover Ibiza and its most spectacular sunsets.

Ses Salines Natural Park

But if you are really looking for a different kind of sunset, then the Ses Salines Natural Park is the perfect place to watch the sun set over the salt ponds, lagoons or mountains. The natural park is a protected area between the south of Ibiza and the north of Formentera. In addition to the salt ponds, nature lovers will find a variety of flora, such as centuries-old junipers, beaches, cliffs and rocky coasts.
