Playa d'en Bossa Holidays
Set on the southeast coast of Ibiza, Playa d'en Bossa brings all of the Ibiza charm to the table: gorgeous beaches, vibrant nightlife and clubbing, and old world history that leads you right to the doorsteps of the island's capital, Ibiza Town. Unlike some of the other seasonal towns on the island, Playa d'en Bossa is a year round, committed culture, with plenty to do and see no matter what time of year you pay it a visit.
Of course, we would be remiss if we didn't acknowledge the prominence of nightlife in the town, with many clubs, like Ushuaia and Bora Bora, known worldwide for their unbelievable partying scene and DJ sets. When DJs create their world tours, more times than not, they include Playa d'en Bossa in that list of destinations, as the local clubs and waterfront bars provide them with gorgeous views and sets for night-time musical acts.
For those that aren't into drinking, or might be travelling with a family, Playa d'en Bossa can also deliver with a great waterpark and the longest beach on the island. You can have fun and experience everything there is to see in Ibiza without necessarily hitting the town after sundown. Don't forget to check out the amusement park rides, mini golf, and plenty of water sports that can be rented along the massive beach.
And, if you're looking to venture out and see what else is out there on the island, the historic town of Ibiza Town, surrounded by a Medieval Wall with pirate towers that provide a cultured glimpse out at the see, is just a 10-minute drive away. With plenty of shopping options also in both locations, it's impossible to be bored while staying in Playa d'en Bossa. See for yourself!

As for something more serious, like a trip down history lane, Ibiza Town is just 10-minutes away. There, you can sink your teeth into classic Spanish dishes, go on history tours, learn more about the past pirating on the island, and take in the fortress and the wall that still stands there 500-years later after Medieval occupation. With plenty of clubs and bars there as well, we recommend making the trip.
Don't forget to look up the Fiesta de Sant Ciriac in Ibiza Town if you can! It's one street party you will not want to miss.
Besides the nightlife, Playa d'en Bossa is known for housing the longest beach in all of Ibiza. Unlike other towns on the island, there is plenty of beach access for you to secure with your significant other, spouse, or friends, providing you with respite and seclusion from the crowds. If you get up early enough, you can have a piece of the best part of the white sandy beach, right against the gorgeous aqua blue water.
People are active on this beach, which means there are plenty of umbrellas, surfing rentals, kitesurfing rentals, fishing gear, volleyball courts, and more for you to consider while you're laying back and enjoying the surf. There is also diving rentals and snorkel rentals if you'd rather explore from inside the ocean.
Remember that Playa d'en Bossa is on a Spanish island, which means it is famous for hot, direct, and exposing sunlight. Always come prepared with sunscreen and cover ups in case there are no more umbrella rentals or shady spaces left on the hot sand. You would rather be safe than sorry so you can still enjoy your clubbing experience come nightfall!
Playa d'en Bossa is definitely a sought after beaching destination on the island due to its space, so be sure to enjoy your time while soaking up on the sun from its golden white sands.
