- Casa Jondal

This summer, the old beach bar of El Sabinar has become Casa Jondal with Rafa Zafra at the helm. This chef already has two successful restaurants in Madrid and Barcelona called Estimar. Here you eat with your feet in the sand and your gaze on the sea, which is the main subject of the menu: grilled lobster with its juices, fish tempura, oysters with pickled carrot and saffron, king crab with Mexican tortillas... Where is this new jewel? in Cala Jondal, in the south of Ibiza.  

- Pamelas Restaurant

The singular Hotel Pikes Ibiza that stands on a hillside outside San Antonio opened this summer a new picturesque outdoor restaurant inspired in the amusing 70s. The menu is aimed at meat-eaters with its beef sparerib with soya sauce and its Angus hamburger as its two flagship dishes.

Safe bathing against COVID-19 on the beaches and coves of Ibiza

Besides all the exciting establishments in Ibiza that you can enjoy this summer, you can also visit the beaches and coves on the island. You can sunbathe peacefully and paddle in the water at ease thanks to the limited capacity that is constantly supervised on beaches with a lifeguard service to avoid crowds on the most popular beaches or on small coves like Cala Saladeta, Cala Bassa or Cala Compte.

These restrictions mean that the beaches aren’t closed. Instead, if the maximum capacity is reached, no more people are allowed access until someone else leaves. So far these actions have only been necessary occasionally and visitors are generally discovering a more peaceful and quieter Ibiza like it used to be in the 70s and 80s.
