Holidaymakers who want to be close enough to Ibiza’s party scene but far enough away to admire distant views of the palm tree-lined promenade should think about spending some time in Figueretas. Throughout the year, an influx of international tourists descends on this suburb of Ibiza Town. A popular resort overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Figueretas claims such a blissful spot on the map that it even attracts the locals. All tastes are catered to in this resort, which boasts its very own beach, heaps of accommodation options, and a prime position near the archipelago’s best bars and clubs.
Playa D’en Bossa
Experience the island's old-world charms, best nightclubs, and round-the-clock party atmosphere in Playa D’en Bossa. You will find this resort on the island's south-east coast. It may have a reputation as a party-goer's paradise, but Bossa also entices all-around ocean lovers with its two-kilometre expanse of sand. Kick back with a cocktail on one of the loungers here or embark on an Ibizan day trip to Ses Salines Natural Park, Aguamar Waterpark, or the enchanting Ibiza Old Town. Volleyball, kitesurfing, and diving are just a few activities one can indulge in when spending time in Playa D’en Bossa.
Playa Es Cavallet
Buses regularly depart from Playa D’en Bossa in the direction of Playa Es Cavallet, so why not tick two places off your "must visit" list in a single day? Here, tourists can soak up some rays on the gay-friendly beach, as well as visit some of Ibiza's designated nudist beaches. It's not just the welcoming, open vibe that lures in visitors but also, the natural splendour that this area is famous for. Hikers can often be seen exploring the wilderness, which paints a pretty picture of rolling sand dunes and rich vegetation. Don't be surprised if you spot a heron or flamingo pecking at the surrounding salt flats as they are known to be indigenous to the area.
Playa Las Salinas
This resort is named after the salt lakes that can be found in Ibiza's Southern region. A hipster hangout spot, Playa Las Salinas boasts clear waters, powder-soft sand and a medley of beach bars that create the perfect setting for sipping sangria at sunset. It takes just 10 minutes to drive to Salinas from the town and with so many beach facilities on offer it'd be a shame not to make a day of it here. Loungers and parasols pepper the sand, where local masseuses will be more than happy to ease your aching muscles after a night of non-stop dancing. Beach boutiques, showers and lockers are also available at Playa Las Salinas. If you're feeling in the party mood, hop on board an electro boat for an afternoon of sun and socialising on the Mediterranean Sea.
With unique rock formations and so many fish species to see, a glass-bottom boat trip is sure to be a highlight of your time spent in Figueretas. Pedalos can be rented for a small fee or if you prefer an adrenaline rush on the water, why not rent a jet ski for an hour? Water-skiing is also available, as is parasailing. Travelling with a group? Skim along the water at high speed on an inflatable banana boat, but make sure you hold on tight.
When you tour the promenade of Figueretas you will likely be tempted to join a boat excursion. After all, who wouldn't? The surrounding scenery is nothing short of amazing and by hopping on board a boat you can see things from a completely different perspective. Consider cruising along the Ibizan coast on what is commonly referred to as an "aquabus". Tours depart hourly from Figueretas and head in the direction of the sands of Formentera, from the lively resort of Playa D'en Bossa.
Some of Ibiza's most successful boutiques and stores can be found along Avenida de España. This main street in Figueretas is full of life from morning until night. When dusk falls, artists and craftsmen display their handmade goods on stalls along the ocean-facing promenade. If you put your haggling skills to the test, you could walk away with a real bargain.
A 100-metre strip of sandy beach can be found in the laid-back Figueretas resort. Connecting three separate strips of sand is a promenade, which you can first walk along to get a feel for the area. Many visitors say that the atmosphere changes in different parts of the beach, with some sections of sand reserved for fitness fanatics and other patches of sand favoured by recovering ravers.
Ibiza's cuisine is based on the Mediterranean trilogy, which focuses on using three main ingredients for the preparation of meals - olive oil, wine, and wheat. These ingredients are widely used around the island to add flavour to meals that reflect Ibiza’s cultural heritage. Only raw materials and the freshest produce is chosen to create Figueretas cuisine, with seafood stews, grilled fish paella, and rice and meat dishes being some of the most popular local specialities. Most eateries in the area are a combination of tapas restaurants and charismatic cafes.
For fresh meats and roast fish dishes, make your way to the Old Town and pull up a seat at La Oliva Restaurant. Just a short stroll away is Italian favourite La Dispensa Restaurant. Hard Rock Cafe Ibiza is a must if you like American-style food, while La Cava Tapas Bar will please if you're a fan of flawless presentation in stylish settings. Taste products from the Spanish land and sea at La Mezcalería Mexiterránea.
