Cafe Del Mar is nothing short of iconic on the island of Ibiza, having a spot on the island since 1980! Perched on the beach in San Antonio, this bar boasts incredible views of the Mediterranean and is the perfect spot to watch the sunset; all with an atmosphere that is laid-back and relaxed, with fantastic music that blends chillout and electronic styles, but always tinged with a Balearic vibe. It’s been about for so long for a reason, and there are few better beachside spots to sink some fruity cocktails and spend a night by the beach. 

If you're looking for an authentic Ibiza experience, Cafe Del Mar is a must-visit. It may not be the most exclusive bar on the island, but it's a classic for a reason. So why not grab a drink, find a seat on the outdoor terrace, and let the magic of the sunset and the music wash over you at Cafe Del Mar?

S'Escalinata in Ibiza’s Old Town is a must-visit for a truly unique, and undeniably Spanish experience. Located on a steep staircase, the bar offers stunning views of the city and sea, which you can enjoy from the numerous pillows they line their section of the steps with. It may be a bit bohemian, and you may want your Ibiza holiday to be exclusively parties and clubs, but if you want a break where you can sit back and relax, then look no further than S'Escalinata

They also have an exceptional selection of great food (mainly tapas) that you can enjoy alongside the copious amounts of Sangria. But, for the ultimate experience, visit S'Escalinata during sunset and enjoy an extra special version of the views provided. 



Paradise Lost

If you're looking for an unforgettable night out in the secluded corner of Ibiza’s Old Town, then you simply have to check out Paradise Lost.

And let me tell you, the temptation to try one (or five) of their expertly crafted cocktails is hard to resist!

The Caribbean-themed bar is a real standout on the island and the unique tiki vibe that gives the place an extra layer of fun and excitement. Plus, if that's not enough to convince you, just wait until you hear about the music.

Where: Ibiza Old Town

Tirapalla is one of San Antonio’s very best-kept secrets when it comes to a night sinking the boozy beverages. If you can ignore your inhibitions when you see the cheap nondescript sign, and make your way up the seemingly endless flights of steps, which are awesomely decorated in old rock posters and gig promos, you’re climb will be worth it as you step onto the roof terrace and see the killer views of the Old Town.

If you fancy a moment where you sub out the big baselines of the clubs to shamelessly enjoy some classic rock and indie tunes then Tirapalla is the gaff for you. Nonetheless, it's worth noting that the place can get pretty rowdy during peak season. If you prefer a more tranquil setting or dislike loud music and crowds, Tirapalla may not be your cup of tea. However, if you're after a memorable (or forgettable) night out, Tirapalla is the place to be.



No 5 Ibiza

With a modern vibe, excellent views of the port from their front-facing beer garden, wonderful and attentive staff and DJs playing a mix of chill and deep house throughout the day, it’s one of the Port area's very best. 

But it's not just the vibes that make No 5 Ibiza a must-visit spot. The creative cocktails are equally impressive, with unique combinations that are all of the bar's own making, their staff are true mixologists, and even use exotic fruits, homemade syrups and local wild herbs to spice up their bevs. 

With some of the best cocktails in the Port area and a view from the garden that will have you struggling to leave, No 5 is one of Ibiza's very best.
