From “el bullet de peix” to “risotto de setas”, in this list: Beach restaurants open all year, we propose a number of gastronomical delights, sure to give a taste of Ibiza all year round.
CELEBRATE ANY OCCASION OR TREAT YOURSELF TO SOME FINE FOOD WHILE ENJOYING THE WINTER SUN IN IBIZA. THE PERFECT COMBINATION!
1 Bar Flotante: Situated at the beginning of the Talamanca beach, as its name would suggest this restaurant gives the impression that it’s floating on the sea. From first thing, in the morning they serve an ample selection of toasted bread and rolls at a good price. It’s also an ideal spot to enjoy fresh fried fish and on top of that some paella and rice dishes.
2 Sa Caleta: Found in the small cove of the same name, this restaurant serves Mediterranean food in a truly traditional style, with some extraordinary views. The turquoise colour of the sea and the clay tones of the sand create an exceptional landscape in which to enjoy their rice or fish dishes 365 days of the year.
3 White Eivissa: A flirtatious little restaurant perfect for lunch, dinner or enjoying a cocktail or two by the beach. On their menu, you’ll find rice dishes, paellas, meats, fishes… During the winter months, they offer 3 course menus for only €16, with bouncy castle for children in the weekend, as well as some other truly appetising offerings like those on Saturdays where the restaurant prepares the most delicious of winter-time meals “Madrilenian stew” or on Sundays Spanish typical “calçots”.
Yemanjá: For more than 30 years, this restaurant, found in Jondal cove, has forged for itself an excellent gastronomic reputation among Ibizans and tourists alike. It is without a doubt one of the friendliest beach clubs in the area, perfect for enjoying a typical rice dish or a selection of tapas in good company.
5 Cotton Beach Club: (Open Saturdays and Sundays). From the privileged position of the Tarida cove watchtower, Cotton offers itself as one of the most romantic -or visually appealing- options of the island. Beautifully decorated with the colour white playing an important role, this modern beach club is a delight for the senses. Its kitchen offers a varied Mediterranean menu, highlighting the rice, pasta and salad dishes on offer. A good choice if you’re looking to make a good first impression.
6 Atzaró Beach Cala Nova: located on one of the most beautiful beaches in the eastern part of the island of Ibiza, Cala Nova. This restaurant is a perfect place to spend a pleasant day by the sea, enjoy local cuisines such as the “Rotja or Gallo San Pedro” or even “if you are the daring” take a dip before and after eating.
These Beach restaurants open all year could be closed for a short vacation.
