Clubs and a calm coastline
Playa d'en Bossa sits in a sun-drenched spot on Ibiza's south-east coast, around two miles outside Ibiza Town. A real crowd-pleaser, the resort's nightlife scene is an overflow from Ibiza Town, with a line-up of swanky cocktails bars and exclusive beach clubs dotted along the waterfront.
But by day, Playa d'en Bossa quietens down. There's a real family focus, with a stunner of a beach wrapped around the coast – think super-soft sand, a smooth shoreline and a backdrop of palm trees. It's also fully equipped with a watersports centre, beachfront playgrounds and sunloungers where you can camp out all day.
The picturesque shady waterfront has a sociable buzz from a string of souvenir shops, family-friendly restaurants and pubs.

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.
Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
