Ibiza Sunset Watching

Mambo sunset

We don’t know exactly what it is, but it is a well-known fact that sunsets in Ibiza are some of the best in the world. And even if, on the odd occasion, there are clouds in the sky, the sun will pierce through and the beautiful rich colours of reds, pinks, purples and oranges will light up as music plays perfectly in the background – tantalizingly announcing the end of the day, and the start of a long, exciting night in the party capital of the world. 

Every single sunset in Ibiza is unique and spending this time with your friends simply watching can create some of the deepest and most emotional memories you’ll ever have. 

Sa Talia

Sa Talaiassa, also known as Sa Talaia or Sa Talaia de Sant Josep, is the highest mountain on the island of Ibiza, and the perfect spot to watch the sun go down. At 475m high, Sa Talia will allow you to enjoy incredible views of the island, and an unobstructed view of the Ibizan sunset. Both walkable and driveable, this viewpoint is second to none for a typical Ibiza sunset. 

Es Vedra

A particularly beautiful spot to watch the sunset is on the cliffs above Cala D’Hort, right opposite Es Vedra Rock. The ancient ruined tower on the cliffs used to be used to watch out for pirates and is a perfect viewpoint for those willing to climb up to it. You can see Es Vedra Rock from various points on the Ibizan Coast, but the gatherings at Cala d’Hort feel almost spiritual and extra special. Remember to make a wish…

Sunset Strip

The legendary Sunset Strip in San Antonio is home to a handful of upmarket restaurants and bars, including Café Mambo, Café Del Mar, Savannah and Mint Lounge. All with terraces built over the rocks, these restaurants are full to the brim each and every evening whilst the sun goes down. Café Mambo hosts pre-parties every night for some of the most famous parties on the island, so expect music from the biggest DJ’s whilst you sip sangria and watch the sun leave the sky.

Benirras

Beautiful sunsets, dancing on the beach, drummers and hippies – so quintessentially Ibiza – and you will find all at Benirras Beach. At the north of the island, 10 minutes from San Miguel is this sandy and pebbly beach with a perfect sunset view. The drummers on a Sunday originate from a gathering back in August 1991 in protest against the first Gulf War but has now turned into a weekly event that lures in hundreds to this beautiful cove, but it is a lot quieter and just as beautiful on other days of the weekend. 

Ses Salines

Watching the sun go down over the salt flats is truly a sight to behold, and Ses Salines is a perfect spot to do just that. Sa Trixna, at the far end, is a bit of an institution on the island and has been around since the 1970s – the relaxed, hippy feel makes it an ideal venue to enjoy a sundowner. Super busy in high-season, we’d definitely recommend you make a reservation. 

Cala Comte

The un-spoilt beach of Cala Comte is home to restaurant and bar Sunset Ashram. A no-frills venue with guest DJs playing as the sun goes down. The bar is situated on the rocks that divide the beach into two and is an amazing location to sit back, relax and experience the slow Ibizan sunset. A favourite for locals and residents, Cala Comte offers a relaxed bohemian vibe, Balearic beats and emotive sunset scenes.
