The main vibe of S'Argamassa is that of relaxation. On a completely different page to the busy clubbing meccas elsewhere on Ibiza, S'Argamassa provides a peaceful base with a beautiful beach. Livelier Santa Eulalia and Es Cana are either side of you on this stunning part of the east coast. Here you'll find a selection of bars, shopping and activities.
San Antonio Town
Famed the world over for its nightlife, staying in Ibiza's playful San Antonio Town you'll be in the heart of the action. It's come a long way in 30 years from a small fishing village to an international DJ hub but San Antonio still has a big connection with the water. You can enjoy the golden beach, take a boat trip from the marina or watch the sun set over the Mediterranean from the Sunset Strip chill-out bars. Then as the evening goes on the music cranks up a notch and the party begins.
A place of simple charms that hasn't succumbed to the demands of tourists, San Jose is a relaxing haunt for couples wanting to experience a living Ibizan village. Think old-time Spaniards spending their days playing cards under a shady harbour.
One of Ibiza's largest resorts, Santa Eulalia maintains its calm and is a charming, traditional Spanish resort oozing class. The town is a fantastic romantic getaway for couples but also provides a good base for families, who are drawn to the two good-sized beaches that are home to a selection of watersports.
For most people, holidays to Ibiza are all about the superb beaches and the larger-than-life party resorts. However, there are also many tranquil coastal towns where you can really get away from it all. Cala Pada is one of them – a tiny village with one of the most unspoilt beaches in the region. If you book holidays to Cala Pada, Ibiza's quieter side will be yours to explore.
Ibiza Town is the gem in the island's crown, with legendary nightlife that brings visitors from all over, plus a history and culture that permeates every scenic street. It doesn't have its own beach, but you'll be too preoccupied with sightseeing, shopping, and wining and dining to notice. By day, stroll through the fortified walls of the Dalt Vila old town or along the marina. By night, sleepy Ibiza Town comes alive, so switch your walking shoes for dancing shoes and experience some of Europe's best clubs.
Holidays to Ibiza are no longer just for those seeking hedonistic experiences. The jewel in the crown of the Balearic Islands, Ibiza has resorts to suit every kind of traveller. Sant Rafel, a peaceful village just under 15 minutes from Ibiza airport is the perfect base for exploring the island. Its central location means you're never far from a beach or a town. The village itself has plenty of restaurants if you want a quiet evening close to your holiday home.
Holidays to Talamanca, Ibiza, are unique. They combine the best of the island's nightlife with a sanctuary of tranquility. Talamanca neighbours Ibiza Town, though is somewhat more glamorous. You'll have a range of upmarket restaurants, coffee bars and luxurious resorts lining the white sands. You can walk into the heart of Ibiza Town along the promenade, where you'll pass the pretty marina, and Playa d'en Bossa is slightly further along. There's a UNESCO-listed old quarter to walk around, too. Holidays in Talamanca give you the best of both worlds: gorgeous hotels and villas, just a short walk from the partying centre of Ibiza.
Small in size but big in luxury, Cala Gracio is sure to help you reach relaxation as you lounge on the pale sands and take in the natural beauty of the surrounding area. You'll be far enough away from the booming club industry to unwind in peace, but close enough that you can reach the pumping nightlife of San Antonio Town in just a few minutes.
Cala Llonga is set in a small horseshoe-shaped bay on the east coast of Ibiza, providing a haven of tranquillity among idyllic natural scenery. The rolling green hills and lush pine trees here are not necessarily something you would think to find in Ibiza. Cala Llonga is known for its quiet nature and laid-back feel. The exact opposite is true of its neighbour, Ibiza Town, with its bustling old town and world-famous nightlife.
The small and peaceful resort of Cala Tarida on Ibiza's west coast is ideal for families, as well as couples who will enjoy romantic meals with the beautiful Ibizan sunset as a backdrop. Its white sand beach and deep blue waters add to the scene, creating a picture-perfect setting to holiday in.
The small, coastal town of Es Cana has something to offer relaxation seekers, watersports enthusiasts and those who enjoy an evening tipple of two. Life passes by at a leisurely pace here, and the sparsely-populated, sheltered beach is a quiet place to unwind. There's a real buzz about the town's famous hippy market though, which is worth getting up from your sun lounger for.
The laid-back town of Figueretas is locally known as the tranquil suburb of Ibiza Town. Ibiza package holidays here are the ideal getaway as you'll have all the amenities of its energetic sister city only a brief walk away, but with the atmosphere of a peaceful, beach resort. The shores of Figueretas are small but mighty, with water sports and plenty of soft sand, and there are bars and restaurants along the promenade that are perfect for quick snacks or watching the sunset.
Playa Den Bossa
Playa d'en Bossa has lots of features that make it the most popular resort for Ibiza package holidays, including the fact it has the longest beach and the only water park on the island. Add to that the amazing selection of bars, restaurants and famous clubs and beach bars such as Space, Ushuaia and Bora Bora and you'll get a real flavour of what the resort has to offer.
Playa Figueral is named after the abundance of fig trees that grow in surrounding fields and is also known as Es Figueral or simply Fig Trees Beach. Head down to the coast though and there's not a field in sight, but there is a wide, golden sandy bay backed with gently sloping, tree-lined cliffs. A quiet holiday base, there are some great little restaurants and bars to lounge in at your leisure and lots of water sports to take part in. The accommodation in Playa Figueral is beachside or set into the cliffs, providing brilliant views out to sea.
Port Des Torrent
With a scenic beach surrounded by nature and just a couple of hotels, Port des Torrent may feel away from it all, but the town is well-serviced by its closeness to San Antonio Town and Bay. Regular ferries and boats depart from the working harbour to San Antonio and other destinations, so you can easily explore the rest of Ibiza. Port des Torrent works well as a quiet family base and has a compact water park at one of its hotels, although it is open to the public.
The well-known beauty spot of Portinatx can easily claim to be the most attractive resort in the Balearics for its contrast of brilliant blue waters with beautiful green landscape. There's a reason it was chosen as the setting of the film South Pacific. This most northerly point of Ibiza is a place to relax in seafood restaurants or sip sangria, relax on one of its three beaches, or explore dramatic coastal trails.
Puerto San Miguel
Surrounded by nature on the beautiful northern coast of Ibiza, Puerto San Miguel is a peaceful village with a brilliant beach at its heart. This restful place is popular with families and couples, but doesn't get too busy. An area of pine trees, caves and rocky coves, the hiker's paradise of Puerto San Miguel is well connected to the rest of the island so you can extend your exploration.
San Antonio Bay
San Antonio Bay is the quieter sister of well-known party destination San Antonio Town. As they join together you can choose to stay on the edge of the action or a little further away.
