Lying just east of Ibiza Town, Figueretas has developed into a residential suburb of the capital with a thriving beach community. Its pleasant promenade is the resort’s main artery which runs the length of the beach continuing along to the lively resort of Playa d’en Bossa which is only a 20 minute stroll to the south. This is a particularly pleasant walk in the evenings when all the temporary market stalls selling handicrafts are set up. You can easily walk to Ibiza Town as well.
As a place to stay Figueretas attracts all age groups. Families are attracted by its fine beach and close proximity to the attractions of Ibiza Town whilst younger crowds are well located for leisurely days spent at the beach combined with a lively nightlife in the nearby resort of Playa d’en Bossa and the capital itself. There’s a good selection of hotels and self-catering apartments to suit all tastes and budgets.
Numerous bars and restaurants are scattered along the promenade with fine sea views such as the Restaurante Principe which is a good choice for Mediterranean fish dishes. There are a few British pubs in Figueretas such as the Royal Oak and the Queen Vic which serve typical pub grub and provide decent entertainment. There’s also a fine Indian restaurant called the Shanti Sakti which is a must for curry addicts. However, to get more of the notorious Ibiza nightlife you’d be better off heading into Playa d’en Bossa and Ibiza Town.
Boat services depart from in front of the Los Molinos hotel will take you across to the nearby island of Formentera for the day or head north on the Wednesday cruise up to Es Cana where the weekly ‘hippy market’ is held. Children will love the waterpark near Playa d’en Bossa and there’s enough there to keep the adults entertained as well. For clubbers the Discobus serves Playa d’en Bossa and Ibiza Town providing transport between the main clubs on the island including those in San Antonio.
