The sunset in Ibiza has become so trustworthy that residents just call it La Puesta (The Setting). Nothing more, nothing less. Staying around to watch the sunset is a more than typical event because La Puesta on the island is a quite an event.
The Islands are those magical places where you can see the sunrise and sunset of the same day on the sea’s horizon. In some spots, the enraptured crowds gather and they applaud excitedly, begging the Sun to play an encore, as if they were at the best concert, the most moving play, or the most exciting movie...
Boats, sailboats and yachts always take up the front rows and the VIP area of this great show of nature performed with huge oil brushstrokes of red, orange, yellow and turquoise colours.
That’s why today we wanted to pay tribute to those top box seats that move left and right throughout the year.
On the island of Ibiza, Es Codolar beach and the Cap d’Es Falcó area is one of the residents’ best kept secrets. You’ll see the sunset at sea throughout the winter. At this time of year it sets behind the magical island of Es Vedrà! On clear days, it is not uncommon to see the Spanish peninsula in the background.
Cala d'Hort, along with Es Vedrá in the foreground, is another magical place to drop your anchor at sunset
And the whole coast of Sant Josep... making a special stop at Platjes de Compte. There is extraordinary beauty in a gorgeous skyline created thanks to the silhouettes of the small islands of S'Espartar, S'Illa des Bosc and Sa Conillera.
And if you’re up for going out to party, you must stop in Sant Antoni de Portmany. With music from Café del Mar playing in the background. People gather on the beach: cocktails, selfies, and rounds of applause. And at sea... with more music and water sports too (wakeboards, hoverboards, or even flyboards).
But if you’re more into peace and quiet, you must make a stop a little further north at Cala Salada and further on in Benirràs, where every Sunday drums beat out a farewell rhythm to the Sun.Back to blog
