Guide to the Best Beach Clubs in Ibiza 2024

If you’re looking for the best beach clubs in Ibiza then look no further. Our insider guide has a detailed guide to our favourite beach clubs in the Balearic party island. They’re tried and tested and we’ve been visiting many of them for years.

Which are the Best Beach Clubs in Ibiza?

I’ve been lucky enough to go to Ibiza nearly yearly since I was younger and I’ve managed to go to a lot of beach clubs on the island. There are some really good ones but I’ve shortlisted may favourite and what I think are the best on the island. These are listed based on service, food, drinks and beach quality. Beach clubs are in no particular order.

Cala Bassa Beach Club (CBBC)

Cala Bassa Beach Club (or CBBC) is perhaps my favourite and the best beach club in Ibiza. It’s also probably the biggest but the size doesn’t mean anything – the service is exceptional and you’ll be guaranteed a great day. The actual beach is fantastic too with the majority of the private beach being set back behind the public section.

So what makes it great? It’s a beach club where you get what you pay for and the staff work really hard for the customers. The sun loungers are solid wood (a nice touch) and each one has a separate table. The ‘first line’ sections (there are two) are on the actual beach and these cost considerably more. You do get the benefit (or not for some) of getting music from the bar DJ in the afternoon.

The food is fantastic and the menu is pretty consistent regardless of which section you eat at in the huge beach club. It’s also reasonable with a lobster paella coming in at only €75 for 2 people (oh and it’s genuinely good).

What to know before you visit

  • You can reserve online
  • Taxis can be hard to get at the end of the day (I’ve waited more than 30 minutes a few times)

Address: Camí de la Bassa, 07829

Blue Marlin

Blue Marlin is probably one of the only real party beach clubs on the island. Well, it is and it isn’t. When you enter, you’ll feel like you’re in Ushuaia rather than a beach club but this is just where there are certain nightclub events go on. They have residencies on at certain evenings (including late afternoons) in the year.

When you go past this club area, you’ll past the restaurant zone and then you’ll get to the sun loungers. Perhaps the only critique here is that there’s a lot and they’re packed close together. However the service is excellent with the beach runners getting drinks and food to you very quickly.

The actual beach area is very rocky but there’s a pontoon (for boat arrivals) with a ladder which makes getting into the sea very easy. Food is great and well priced – I had an excellent grilled lobster (fresh!) which was a real highlight and it was around €45 including fries.

What to know before you visit

  • You can reserve online
  • Check if there are club nights on if you want to avoid large crowds/music

Experimental

Experimental beach is an awesome ‘boutique’ beach club on the southern edge of the island. It’s completely isolated with nothing around it other than the salt fields and the wild coastline. It’s definitely worth visiting if you want good food, music, views over to Es Vedra and awesome sunset at the end of the day.

The restaurant area is great with the tables well spaced apart, shade from the sun and a lovely, cooling sea breeze. The menu is limited but the options are fantastic. A lot of the meat and fish dishes are grilled over their charcoal BBQ which adds a lot of flavour.

Really chill (balearic house/trance) starts early afternoon but it’s on the quieter side. The sun loungers are particularly nice (solid wood and no plastic!) and the service is attentive. My only issue with Experimental is that access to the sea is practically non-existent which isn’t great. There is a shower to cool off but I’d prefer to swim in the sea. As the sun goes down you’ll be treated to an epic sunset – it’s perhaps one of the best spots in the island to see it.

Cotton Beach Club

Cotton Beach Club is one of the smallest beach clubs in this list. Located on the east of the island, on the Playa Cala Tarida, it’s predominately a restaurant space but it’s got a fantastic little private beach section. I’ve included this because it’s got a solid beach and a restaurant with incredible views across the bay.

So the beach section is small which for some can be great. The only downside for me is that, as the restaurant is on the top of the rocky cliff, service can be slow. The sun loungers were also plastic when I last went but I’ve seen they’ve upgraded them to solid wooden ones. The beach is lovely and the public section is pretty quiet, even during peak season.

The restaurant section is fantastic, set-up on the top of a dazzlingly white Balearic villa with views across the bay. The food has changed since my last visit with many more Asian influences. There still are the Spanish and Mediterranean classics however. Be warned that prices are on the higher side!

What to know before you visit

  • You can reserve tables online
  • You need to call to reserve sun loungers
  • Access to the beach is via 3 sets of stairs

Address: Carrer Posta de Sol, C/ de Cala Tarida, 21, 07829

Amante

Amante is another gem of a beach club/restaurant on the island. It’s completely isolated in a wild, rocky bay and the actual restaurant area is beautifully landscaped. As beach clubs go, it’s definitely on the more relaxed side. There’s some seriously chill music playing (not too loudly though) which doesn’t cover up the sound of the nearby waves.

The beach club section is very small and you’ll need to reserve ahead of time to get a sun lounger. The service is very polished and extremely friendly. Access to the water is via the rocky beach so bring appropriate footwear, once you’re in the water you’ll most likely be by yourself!

The restaurant section is great with the large terrace giving uninterrupted views of the beautiful bay. It’s a perfect location for an evening meal if only want to eat here. The food is classic Spanish & Mediterranean with plenty of fish and meat options. We had a salt-crust baked wild seanbass which was very good.
