Platja d’en Bossa (a.k.a Playa den Bossa) presents a variety of different faces along almost three kilometres of beach. The middle part, near to the Jet apartment building, offers one of the meeting spots for the club and party scene par excellence – Bora Bora.
A high-end sound system makes for hot times and when it gets too hot just run down to the water and go for a swim. After long club nights and mornings the party people come here to continue to party the day away. Not for party poopers!
Take a walk a few hundred metres towards Ibiza Town along the shore and the atmosphere changes.
It becomes more peaceful. Around Hotel Garbi beachgoers can find a little more tranquility.
Heading the other way along the beach towards the pirate tower it’s amazing how quickly the hectic hordes of tourists dwindle away the further south you go. It’s well worth walking a little further to get away from the crowds.
The final stretch of the beach is known as Coco Beach and here the atmosphere is completely different. Once the salt flats start, there’s not a hint of the raucous parties that characterise the rest of Platja d’en Bossa. The landscape surrounding the Torre de sa Sal Rossa watchtower is relatively unspoilt.
If you’re looking for a good place to eat, you can’t go wrong with Jimmy’s restaurant, and if all you want is to laze around on the beach, then there’s plenty of soft sand and comfortable beach chairs to choose from.
However, we recommend you also try out a third option: namely the wide range of water sports on offer. Just a few yards away from Jimmy’s, you will find the Palladium Palace hotel’s sports centre, where you can sign up for a diving course, practice your sailing, hop on a surfboard or hire a canoe.
“We offer courses for kids and adults and for all levels, from beginners to advanced – but we also hire out equipment on an hourly basis,” says Stefan, who is there to tend to the needs of visiting water sports fans.
The water sports centre on Coco Beach is open daily, except for Sundays, from 10.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. and from 3 to 6 p.m.
How to get there: simply drive from Figueretes right to the end of Platja d’en Bossa
