Biza’s evolution from a late-night party island (early morning, technically) to a certified foodie destination means that visitors now flock to the White Isle for both its culinary offerings and its club scene. But with every cove, bay and stretch of sand now boasting some kind of beach restaurant, how do you choose the right seaside watering hole for you?
We asked the Ibiza-based concierge and lifestyle service, Eden Events, to discover the best beach restaurants on the island. Whether you’re looking for a Mediterranean lunch with a view, or Sushi under the stars, these are the best places that sweep visitors from the dance floor to the dining table…
Launched by the team behind island favorite Amante, Aiyanna is pure boho chic. Magnificent ocean views, combined with the restaurant’s natural style and gloriously colorful Guatemalan umbrellas scream fabulous. Sit back and enjoy a cocktail or try their varied menu, which covers much of the Mediterranean. There’s more than enough to keep you satisfied until the sun goes down.
