Playa d’en Bossa is an ideal alternative to staying in Ibiza Town. It lies just a few kilometres from the capital so the nightlife is just a bus or taxi ride away but it is also a lively resort in its own right with the island’s longest sandy beach. The resort caters for all age groups and attracts families and couples as well as younger visitors. The true ravers looking for utter debauchery are better off heading for San Antonio as they might find Playa d’en Bossa too relaxed. Having said that the resort has probably grown into Ibiza’s third party town after San Antonio and Ibiza Town.
Its best known club is Space which only closes its doors for a couple of hours a day allowing for all night and all day partying. There’s a fine selection of bars and restaurants throughout the resort including the notorious Bora Bora beach bar which is well established on the Ibiza party scene attracting revellers around the clock as well as some of the top visiting DJs.
Playa d’en Bossa Beaches
The long beach at Playa d’en Bossa is perfect for leisurely days of sunbathing and swimming with regular visits to the numerous beach bars and cafés along its length. There are also great watersport facilities available for the more energetic. The beach at Ses Salines just to the south is where the ‘beautiful people’ like to be seen whilst the beach at Figueretas to the north is more family orientated and hosts some fine restaurants that you might like to stroll to in the evening.
Playa d’en Bossa Accommodation
There’s plenty beachfront accommodation in Playa d’en Bossa centred mainly on self catering apartments though there’s also a good selection of hotels including the ever popular Fiesta Club Playa d’en Bossa. The Jet apartment complex on the seafront is an extremely popular option particularly amongst younger visitors. It offers a range of apartments to suit all budgets, two fine swimming pools and is easily accessibile to the Space nightclub and Bora Bora beachbar. In peak season (July and August) family visitors would be best advised to book something off the main drag if planning to sleep at night. The rest of the time the resort is far more chilled out making it more attractive as a family destination in June and September.
Playa d’en Bossa is a great place to base yourself when visiting Ibiza thanks to its close proximity to the airport, its excellent beaches and its superb nightlife (and daylife!). And being only a short bus ride into Ibiza Town where some of Ibiza’s top clubs are located you really do have the best of both worlds when staying there.
