1. A mi Maneria
A super romantic place that was not to be missed on this hotspot list. A Mi Manera is a farmhouse restaurant, where you sit relaxed with a direct view of the vegetable garden. Great care is taken to use organically cultivated produce from the vegetable garden and orchard and use quality local products. The napkins are durable and the tablecloths require little washing, saving water. Internationally acclaimed creative director Manu Crotti wanted to create a “pop-vibe” in the interior by using colors and the power of nature combined with art. With an expert chef and friendly staff, A mi Manera is a delicious dining experience.
Also a meeting place for art lovers from different cultures and nationalities.
On the road from Santa Eularia to San Juan.
L´Apero (French for aperitif) from the old owners of the French restaurant Pastis, which unfortunately had to close in 2019 because the landlord doubled the rent. Familiar Pastis faces sommelier Martin, chef Armel and his Brazilian wife and also host Giselle have now opened in another location in the heart of Ibiza with a French “canteen.” Prices are a lot lower than at Pastis and the atmosphere is casual. The music can sometimes be loud with a noisy crowd, but it can also be so that customers spontaneously dance on tables and it becomes an intimate, crazy party.
You have to be a bogeyman and love meat, cheese and cream, as there are few fish or vegetarian options. Typically what you expect from French bistro food, rich and full of flavor.
Saturday night they sometimes have a Raclette night (melted cheese and sausages) with an all-you-can-eat buffet for €20 per person.
It regularly turns into a crazy party here!
Want to see a unique piece of nature in Ibiza? Go look for the hidden spot of Atlantis. Be sure to put on your hiking boots and bring plenty of water; it’s a spirited trip. Atlantis is located in the neighborhood of Es Vedra. Where for Es Vedra you turn right for the viewpoint, for Atlantis you go left uphill until you arrive at the stone circles. From there it is a steep descent straight down. About 2000 years ago, large stones were carved here by the Carthaginians and dragged to Ibiza town to build the city walls. This gives atlantis its unique vibe. The carved sections now form natural pools. Faces and various works of art have also been carved around the rocks. Excellent trip for the adventurous among us. We recommend combining this with the viewpoint of Es Vedra since you are in the area anyway.
Beautiful hike to a unique part of Ibiza.
San Josep, at the parking lot of the Es Vedra viewpoint turn left.
4. La Cava
In the square of Vara del Rey you will find La Cava. A cozy tapas restaurant with a terrace. Ideal for sharing appetizers with a group of friends. You have a nice daily menu here for 15.50. Had a party the previous day? Order breakfast smoothies with names like “Wake up” and “Hangover.” The interior is warm and cozy. The products coming out of the kitchen are 80% locally sourced from the island. The vegetables come from their own vegetable garden and the fish directly from the harbor. The perfect lunch (and dinner) spot while visiting Ibiza town.
Quality tapas in a cozy environment.
Vara de Rey, Ibiza town.
Ibiza’s iconic old town, Dalt Vila, has been around for thousands of years and is definitely worth a visit. In the bustling city, you can enjoy shopping, watch beautiful boats (and people!) in the harbor while enjoying a drink, have dinner al fresco at one of the many restaurants and, of course, dance into the wee hours of the morning.
This place was not to be missed on our hotspot list. Chambao is the restaurant belonging to Nobu hotel in Talamanca. A beautiful fancy place right on the beach. An extremely laidback spot where you come to enjoy a long lunch and a big pitcher of sangria. Feet in the sand! The cuisine is Spanish, paellas, salads from the island and a wide selection of freshly caught fish. For the children, there is a kids club where they can play. The decor is incredibly summery and extremely cozy and stylish.
Lovely laidback summer atmosphere!
Talamanca the beach near Jesus.
Talamanca is a long sandy beach just east of Ibiza town. On the boardwalk you will find a number of cozy restaurants. The water is shallow, calm and clear. The ideal place for a beach day (even with small children) and a delicious lunch by the sea. Talamanca is a popular spot for a reason.
6. Cala Nova
Of all the beaches on the east coast, Cala Nova is our favorite. The water here is the clearest, and in the last few years a number of trendy joints have sprung up. Cala Nova is hot! It’s a place for everyone, super to go with kids but also with a group of friends. It can get a little crowded in season, by the way. You will find popular restaurants such as Aiyanna and Atzaro beach, among others.
Clearest water of east coast beaches + super beach clubs.
East side Ibiza
Cala Nova is one of our favorite beaches on the east side of the island. The water here is very clear and in recent years a number of fine restaurants have opened its doors. Make reservations at Aiyanna, Atzaro Beach or L’Amorigen. A day at Cal Nova is highly recommended.
7. La Chickeria
La Chickeria is a concept blown over from Amsterdam (Van ‘t Spit). This hot spot is the-place-to-be on Friday nights. Here you eat an Ibiza chicken roasted over charcoal that has had a good life. This restaurant is also located in Santa Gertruds. A village that is doing well on our hotspot list this year. You can also enjoy tasty cocktails here. Perfect restaurant to go to with the kids too.
Nice people and delicious chicken!
8. Ibiza Stonehenge
Looking for another great place to add to your instagram collection? Then you certainly can’t skip Ibiza stonehenge. This artwork was built (illegally) by the owner of Cirque de Soleil. The artwork is also called “Time and space.” It is located near Cala Codolar and consists of 2 sections. The stonehenge section where the largest pillar is 20 meters high and whose top is covered with 24 karat gold. However, you enter through a big imposing old door. Keep your camera at the ready here. The hidden beach of Cala Llentia is close by. Guaranteed beautiful pictures for your instagram feed!
Unique hidden spot in Ibiza. Perfect place to shoot snapshots.
Cala Codolar (see map below).
9. Keto Kitchen (closed)
This restaurant is located in the heart of the super cute village of Santa Gertrudis. The cuisine is completely sugar-free, organic and vegetarian, based on the Keto diet of the same name. Everything that comes out of the kitchen here is super styled. Looking for food porn for your instagram? This really is the-place-to-be! The restaurant itself is also styled to perfection. The perfect place to make your friends back home jealous.
Sugar-free foodporn, perfect for your instagram feed.
10. Numero 74
This hot spot is a unique combination of a creative space an artisan store and, of course, a restaurant. This season Santa Gertrudis should not be missing from your list because this place is also here. In the morning you will enjoy a colorful buffet here. Wherever you sit here you are always among the plants. Again, this place is particularly attractive and cozy. You can take pottery and painting courses here, among other things. Usually these are on Saturdays. There is also a super fun play area for the kids. A unique place that you definitely must have visited.
Cozy nicely decorated place.
Not for nothing do many foreigners stay around Santa Gertrudis all year round. This small village is the ideal place to enjoy lunch and shop in one of the cozy little stores. Centrally located on the island and a must-see during your vacation in Ibiza.
11. Radio ME roof terrace
The rooftop terrace of the ME hotel in Santa Eularia is spectacular. The view here is truly unsurpassed. A fancy place that often has live music in the summer. Bring your swimming gear because you can take a lovely swim in the pool and then chill on a Bali bed. The cuisine is fushion, tapas mixed with appetizers from around the world. This combined with a space choice of cocktails ensure that you can have a very nice day here.
Enjoy a 360-degree view with delicious cocktails!
Santa Eularia is the island’s third-largest city. There is a fine beach and also nearby are some beautiful beaches such as Es Niu Blau, Cala Pada, Cala Nova and Cala Llenya. The cozy town offers a wide selection of fine restaurants and quaint boutiques. In addition, here are some larger supermarkets for when you stay in this area until San Carlos / San Juan.
This is one of Ibiza’s most iconic parties. What we like is that there is a large outdoor section and the party starts as early as noon. So you can still enjoy the sun with a drink in your hand. What really makes this party special is the special decorations and the lavishly dressed acts walking around. Unlike most parties, this one has a fairly high Goa content. The celebration is every Sunday in season at Cova Santa.
The most beautifully decorated party on the island.
Cova Santa, San Jose.
The anticipation …

So now for the preliminary fun and then later especially enjoy the relaxed vibe on the island.
