Platja d'en Bossa

South Ibiza

Now backed by some of Ibiza's hottest clubs (and a bunch of high-rise buildings), this white-gold, 3km-long strip of sand washed by gentle aqua-coloured waves remains as lovely as ever. It's bookended by the Torre de Sa Sal Rossa defence tower to the south and the resort suburb of Figueretes to the north.
