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!
