When you hear the words' club' and 'Ibiza' in the same sentence, you usually picture throbbing Superclubs where the volume is cranked up to the maximum, DJs being worshipped like musical gods and the lasers strobe into the early hours. As well as this, the best beach clubs in Ibiza also include fabulous locations and sunrise parties for those who make it through the night.
However, the island also offers a more refined, sophisticated club scene, and it's very special. Ibiza day clubs are a chance to relax in elegant surroundings, dine on gourmet food, and make the most of the beach facilities.
The best beach restaurants in Ibiza combine laidback, easy-going atmospheres with sublime food, drink, and boutique shopping. If you're staying on this sunny island with onefinestay this summer, here is our guide to the top best beach clubs in Ibiza and a few FAQs to help you make the most of your time here.
Before we look at our favourite spots, let's start with a few home truths about the daytime club scene in Ibiza.
It's important to remember that the time of year will dictate which Ibiza beach clubs are open to guests. Primarily, the clubs are open from Easter onwards and remain open from the summer to October. Between November and March, you'll find that the island takes on a much quieter persona, and while some of the clubs may not be open, you'll still find plenty of gourmet restaurants on offer and the most beautiful beaches delightfully empty.
The best Ibiza beach clubs are not within walking distance of each other, so if you plan to visit more than one, then speak to your dedicated concierge who can organise your day in advance and book taxis or a private driver.
While some daytime clubs in Ibiza operate a walk-in policy, others (especially the more popular venues such as Blue Marlin) are booked up well in advance during the high season. If there are particular Ibiza beach clubs that you want to visit, check their online booking systems as early as January to ensure you get a reservation.
It may come as a surprise but there are no Uber or Lyft taxis operating in Ibiza as of 2023. This is due to a regulatory conflict and means you must rely on local taxis instead. During the high season, demand for taxis can be incredibly high, so once again, liaise with your dedicated concierge to arrange cab bookings in advance. Alternatively, your dedicated concierge can organise a car rental for your trip. Simply decide who will be the designated driver for the day and set off to explore the best beach bars in Ibiza town and beyond. Private chauffeur services are also available to book via your concierge.
The dress code entirely depends on the club in question. Most of the best beach clubs in Ibiza will have dress codes for their restaurants, and if you want access to VIP lounges in the evening, you must dress accordingly. Generally, dress codes in Ibiza day clubs are pretty relaxed, but it may be wise to contact the club in advance and check to avoid disappointment on the door.
The word 'club' may be a little bit of a misnomer when it comes to daytime clubs in Ibiza. These focus more on fine dining, boutique shopping, pampering, and enjoying the natural beauty of Ibiza's best beaches rather than dancing until dawn. However, some of the top Ibiza beach clubs are also open during the evening to provide guests with an upmarket clubbing experience with elegant VIP lounges.
The Blue Marlin is famous for being one of Ibiza's best beach clubs, offering the chance to relax and unwind on a stunning beach with champagne cocktails on tap and fine dining in their exclusive restaurant.
It's a great place for celebrity spotting and the team is well-versed in catering to VIP guests. You must book and pay for your reservations in advance, as Blue Marlin is exceptionally popular. The club is open from May to October.
Amante Ibiza is an absolute gem of a club, tucked away in a secluded cove with panoramic views of the Sol Den Serra Bay. You can start the day with a beach yoga session and an indulgent buffet breakfast.
If you prefer to visit in the evening, Amante Ibiza puts on film nights under the stars, complete with champagne on ice, gourmet finger food and the latest blockbusters on show.
The yoga sessions and movie nights are popular, so you'll need to book in advance. The club restaurant, one of the best beach restaurants in Ibiza, serves exquisite cuisine for lunch and dinner inspired by the island's dishes and made using local ingredients.
Boasting the most extensive wine list in Ibiza and a guest list that includes Hollywood A-listers and fashion icons, Cotton Beach is at the top of the list of Ibiza's best beach clubs. Also, the location is spectacular and regarded as one of the most beautiful beaches in the Balearics.
There are 19 different champagnes on offer alone, as well as a restaurant that serves gourmet food. What's more, it's also open from mid-December to New Year. If you're planning a winter break in the sun, you will still need to book well in advance, though, as the Cotton Beach Club has quite a waiting list for reservations.
Coco Beach Club is the place to savour the finer things in life, such as caviar and champagne. With spectacular views of the marina and Ibiza Old Town, it's an exclusive club that takes elegance and luxury to a new level.
Nibble on gourmet tapas served with caviar or Black Angus steak, or a dozen fresh oysters, or lie back on a king-size sun lounger while your waiter brings you perfectly mixed cocktails. Coco Beach is one of the best beach bars in Ibiza and quickly books up. We advise that you make a reservation well before arriving at your Ibiza villa.
Nikki Beach Club is an ideal choice if you love getting out on the water. This elegant club is home to Ibiza's yachting and sailing set, and offers a sophisticated experience for discerning guests. The club has weekly themed events where you can mingle with other holiday makers over gourmet brunches and champagne cocktails.
Glamorous and sophisticated with high standards, a dress code, and exquisite facilities, it's one of the best and most popular outdoor clubs in Ibiza. Nikki Beach Club is open from April to October and has an on-site fashion boutique in case you forget your beachwear essentials. Booking in advance is advised.
A quick hop across to the charming island of Formentera brings you to this delightful and secluded beach club. It's well worth the boat trip to relax in this beautiful beachfront location where you'll have no problem finding your little private spot to soak up the sun.
The cuisine is a fusion of Mediterranean and Basque, accompanied by signature cocktails expertly created by the club's mixologist. Open from May to October, Beso Beach is a different experience from the main Ibiza beach clubs, but one you'll love for its rustic simplicity tinged with opulent indulgence.
With its distinctive Guatemalan parasols and sublime ocean views, Aiyanna Ibiza is a sophisticated Ibiza beach club with a splash of Boho chic. The beach is pristine, and the water is warm, while the club's gourmet cuisine is superbly refined and influenced by Eastern Mediterranean cooking.
The Ibiza Hope Boutique offers high-end shopping, including couture fashion and hand-crafted accessories. Aiyanna Ibiza was voted one of the world's best beach clubs in 2021 by Conde Nast Traveller, an accolade the club is proud of and continues to live up to in 2023.
Cala Bassa Beach Club, or "CBBC" to those in the know, is one of the biggest and best beach clubs in Ibiza and is situated in one of the island's most beautiful coves. With five gourmet restaurants serving a wide variety of cuisine from around the world, Balinese beds to lounge on, and water sports in their Aquatic Sports Centre, CBBC has something for everyone.
Dip into Ibizan cuisine with the club's excellent tasting menu, or indulge in Number-2 Spéciale Oysters and Iranian Beluga Caviar at the Gourmet Bar. CBBC is exceptionally popular, so you will need to book a reservation well in advance of your arrival.
We've saved one of the best for last, the glamorous Nassau Beach Club. This exceptional club is famous for its monthly full-moon dinner parties, where you can dine on the finest gourmet cuisine while entertained by acrobats. A valet boat service can pick you up if you arrive by yacht, while friendly staff bring you cocktails on the beach, and a top DJ keeps you entertained.
The sophistication levels go up a notch once the sun sinks below the horizon, with fine dining followed by all-night after-show parties for an exclusive VIP list of guests. As Nassau is one of the premier outdoor clubs in Ibiza, you must book your reservations early to ensure your place on that list.
If you want to experience a new side of clubbing that you never realised existed, Ibiza's best beach clubs are waiting for you. Book a villa in Ibiza with onefinestay, and you'll discover the charms and delights of this sun-drenched island. Your dedicated concierge is always on hand to help arrange that special club experience at one of these and many other day beach clubs in Ibiza. Browse our Ibiza villas and fall in love with the Balearics all over again.
