The weather might be a little bit more temperamental now that we are in October, but the White Isle is still treating us to some fabulous sunshine days – and what better way to spend those than by the sea?
While the clubs might be closing, many of your favourite beach clubs still keep their doors open for a good few weeks, and there are quite a few that stay open year-round. So make the most it and book yourself in for a day of soaking up the rays, tucking into delicious food and toast that #beachlife with expertly mixed drinks. Here, we round up when Ibiza’s most popular seaside venues close their doors in order by date…
Sa Trinxa Salinas
The iconic beach shack, which was founded in 1978, is expected to bring in its famous green walkway into the sea on the 21st of October. Until then they are open for refreshing beverages, tasty food and good music daily until around 18.00 – 19.00.
An institution located on the famous sunset drumming beach Benirras in the north of the island, on Sunday, October 22nd, boho chic seaside restaurant and bar Elements Ibiza will be ending the season with ‘The Final Chapter’, a day to night celebration for all the family. Starting with activities such as yoga sessions, massages and a hippy market from 12.00, throughout the day plenty of surprises and performances await. From reiki, tarot and numerology readings to live art shows, enjoy a delicious meal with loved ones feasting on Element’s healthy cuisine during this end of season celebration with a spiritual edge.
One of Ibiza’s most romantic seaside offerings, the popular beach club and wedding venue in Sol d’en Serra is open until the 22nd of October between 11.00 and 2.00. Enjoy dramatic views and fabulous fresh Mediterranean food.
Nassau Beach Club
Widely considered to be THE original beach club that revolutionised the Playa d’en Bossa area, Nassau Beach Club is set to go out in style with one final fiesta by the sea on October 28th. Make sure you use this opportunity to enjoy the venue’s delicious culinary offering one more time.
Cotton Beach Club
Another iconic Ibiza venue, the sleek and chic Cotton Beach Club waves goodbye to summer on October 29th with its second ever closing party. Until then, enjoy breath-taking views over Cala Tarida and several exciting foodie concepts including the new Sunset Sushi.
Babylon Beach Ibiza
A firm favourite ours for not only its relaxing atmosphere but also the simply divine food, Babylon Beach Ibiza usually ends it’s summer season with one epic Halloween bash for the whole family on October 31st. Make sure you check out its new speakeasy The Secret Door while you’re there!
The Chiringuito Cala Nova
We love this cute little beach shack on the soft sands of Cala Nova, the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely lunch with friends or an ambient post-beach dinner. This year, the boho chic bar and restaurant will close on November 4th with its signature end of season fiesta which includes lots of island-favourite DJs taking to the booth for one last boogie on the beach!
Part of the renowned Atzaro portfolio, the chic cliff top restaurant stays open all year and offers not only a mouth-watering Mediterranean menu, but also live music every Saturday from 1.30pm. Enjoy views on the isle of Tagomago and sophisticated jazz, rock and soul performances by the sea.
Tanit Beach Ibiza
We love the relaxed and chic Tanit Beach Ibiza for many reasons and one of them is that it stays open in the winter. A great place to bring the kids, enjoy the amazing winter menu and listen to some of the finest Balearic beats.
El Chiringuito Cala Gracioneta
This charming gem located in the idyllic cove of Cala Gracioneta holds a special place in the hearts of locals and holidaymakers alike, so its excellent news that it remains open for winter. Enjoy hearty paella overlooking the sparkling blue sea or toast a beautiful day on the beach with a refreshing cocktail seven days a week between the hours of 12.00 and 18.00, with service reducing to five days a week from Thursday – Monday in November.
This hot new Talamanca opening has enjoyed a stellar first summer on the island filled with stylish seaside soirees and delicious foodie concepts like Lobster Mondays, so we are super excited to hear they will stay open until at least January 2018. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, cocktails and beach service between 9.00 and 20.00.
La Torre Ibiza
Okay, so it’s not strictly speaking a beach club but we had to include La Torre for its year-round offering of breath-taking sea views and tasty food. Located just a stone’s throw outside San Antonio, it’s the perfect spot to bask in the winter sun. The restaurant is open between 8.00 and 14.00 so come for breakfast or a leisurely lunch with family and friends.
Jockey Club Ibiza
The internationally renowned venue combines stunning views on one of Ibiza’s most glamorous beaches with a great culinary offering and regular DJ sets, serving breakfast between 9.00 and 13.00 with the kitchen staying open until 21.00.
