Beziique’s Ibiza Wedding Photographer Team Shares Its Insider Knowledge On Destination Weddings
With an average of 300 sunshine days a year, there is no excuse not to include some beach time in your Ibiza wedding itinerary. The clear waters, golden sands and unforgettable sunsets have made Ibiza and Formentera’s beaches world-famous. And rightly so! The gorgeous natural light and beautiful scenery offer the perfect backdrop for your Ibiza wedding photographer to create stunning wedding pictures that will wow for a lifetime!
From a leisurely welcome lunch by the seaside with your nearest and dearest to romantic sunset cocktails with your other half, you are truly spoilt for choice. Here is our selection of some of the best beaches in Ibiza and Formentera to visit with your Ibiza wedding photographer during your Balearic wedding.
Playa d’en Bossa
One of Ibiza’s liveliest resorts, Playa d’en Bossa boasts the longest beach on the entire island. Home to a diverse selection of beach clubs, it is the party posse’s first choice. If dancing on the sands with a cocktail in-hand is your thing, then this is the place to be. However, with several fine dining options to tempt you, Playa d’en Bossa is also a great spot for a glamorous seaside lunch. BEACHOUSE Ibiza, Nassau Beach Club and its neighbouring sister venue Tanit Beach Ibiza or Ushuaïa Ibiza’s Oyster & Caviar Bar all offer tasty food enhanced by uplifting Balearic beats and tantalising entertainment. Invite your Ibiza wedding photographer along to capture the pre-wedding excitement!
Las Salinas Beach
One of Ibiza’s most famous beaches, in Las Salinas natural beauty meets understated luxury. The sands are white and powdery soft, the waters shallow and dazzle in a myriad of blues. It’s no surprise the natural park has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Glamorous island-hoppers pull up on their yachts to enjoy sun-drenched lunches at the iconic Jockey Club Ibiza, or hip new arrival Beso Beach. Let the rosé flow while your Ibiza wedding photographer captures the magical atmosphere.
Home to one of the island’s most illustrious addresses – the world-famous Blue Marlin Ibiza – a day spent at the glamorous seaside venue belongs on every Ibiza bucket list. Lounge on the sunbeds that are dotted around the iconic white pebble beach and watch the A-List float in on their boats. Dine with your toes in the sand and feast on the Mediterranean and Asian delicacies on offer. The cutting-edge music programme, which has seen the likes of Pete Tong, Erick Morillo and Peggy Gou take to the booth, keeps the energy high until after sunset. It’s a place to ‘see and be seen’, so put on your best Balearic outfit and pose up a storm for your Ibiza wedding photographer.
Head down the southwestern coast to Cala Conta, known for boasting one of the most breath-taking Ibiza sunset views. Due to the formation of the cliffs, the rugged bay consists of two small beaches lapped by azure waters. The smaller cove is home to the cute Chiringuito Cala Escondida, a relaxed Ibiza beach bar with live music. The nearby Sunset Ashram is one of the island’s most romantic venues and overlooks the larger stretch of sand. Both will make the perfect backdrop for your Ibiza wedding photographer to take the most romantic of shots.
Cala D’Hort wows with views on the legendary rock island of Es Vedra that dominates the skyline just off Ibiza’s coast in the South-West. The wide stretch of sand is perfect for enjoying a picnic on the beach with your wedding party while taking in the spectacular views. As it is also on the ‘sunset side’ of the island, your Ibiza wedding photographer will have a field day taking pictures of you in front of the dramatic orange and pink skies.
A gently curved, wide bay with soft sands and dazzling turquoise waters, Cala Tarida was put on the island’s map of glamour spots thanks to the arrival of the famous Cotton Beach Club. From champagne brunches to sushi lunches, sunset cocktails to after-dark dancing, wearing heels to the beach is perfectly acceptable at the stylish cliff-top venue. Let your Ibiza wedding photographer capture you at your glamorous best!
Only a 10-minute drive from San Antonio lies the spectacular beach of Cala Bassa. Wowing with some of the clearest waters you will ever see, soft golden sands and rock formations perfect for a spot of cliff diving, the whole family can enjoy this Ibiza beach. This means Cala Bassa can get very busy, but as your expert Ibiza wedding photographer Beziique can advise on the best times to visit to get some stunning shots!
One of Ibiza’s most beloved beaches, Cala Gracioneta is a small cove with plenty of charm in the West of the island. Just a short drive out of San Antonio, it is a little off the beaten track but has won a loyal following of locals and visitors alike. Framed by rocks and trees, the petite beach opens out into shallow, clear and calm waters perfect for families. We recommend to arrive early so your Ibiza wedding photographer can capture you in this romantic setting before it gets too busy. Afterwards, why not stay for a leisurely lunch at the breezy Chiringuito Cala Gracioneta? The pretty seaside restaurant welcomes guests with fresh juices or potent cocktails, delicious local seafood, hearty steaks and healthy salads.
Another Ibiza icon, Benirras beach in the far North of the island is best known for its sunset-drumming hippies. The striking rock formation that reaches out from the sea, called the ‘Finger of God’, is another picturesque highlight. The beach consists of a mix of sand and pebbles, but the calm turquoise waters are ideal for swimming. Why not enjoy a picnic in front of one of the cute fishing huts that frame the bay? Alternatively, you could take your wedding party to the boho chic Elements Ibiza beach restaurant, famous for its Mediterranean food and parties with a new-age twist. Your Ibiza wedding photographer will love working with the variety of iconic Ibiza backdrops to be found here.
Located in the North of the island, Cala Nova is Ibiza’s new ‘haute hippy’ hotspot. An influx of luxury hotels and seaside restaurants has turned this beautiful beach into the epitome of boho chic. The gently curved bay has soft, golden sands that spill out into clear, light blue waters. The sea is not too deep here, but depending on the wind the waves can get a little stronger than on the beaches in the South. Enjoy breath-taking views at cliff-top restaurant Atzaro Beach or chill out on Aiyanna Ibiza’s sun-dappled terrace with tasty cocktails and live music – and let your Ibiza wedding photographer capture the magic.
The closest beach to cosmopolitan Ibiza Town and the glamorous Marina Botafoch yacht harbour, it’s no surprise that the bay of Talamanca has morphed into a magnet for high-end names in recent years. Lined by a wooden boardwalk, the long stretch of sand is overlooked by a variety of seaside eateries and beach clubs. The sparkling blue sea offers a beautiful backdrop for your Ibiza wedding photographer to take some fun group shots. Enjoy a walk along the promenade, soak up the rays on a beach bed or settle in for an atmospheric meal. Whether you prefer the fine-dining options at the Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay or one of the more low-key eateries, the choice is yours!
We really can’t talk about Ibiza beaches without mentioning its neighbouring island of Formentera. Located only a 30-minute boat ride from Ibiza, its pristine white beaches are lapped by crystal clear waters so blue they are often compared to the Caribbean. Rumour has it that Walt Disney himself was so impressed by Formentera’s natural beauty, it inspired some of the scenery in the classic Peter Pan cartoon.
With a more tranquil vibe than Ibiza, Formentera is the perfect place to relax after your wedding or enjoy a ‘mini moon’. The setting is ideal for your Ibiza wedding photographer to take some romantic bohemian couple portraits. Formentera’s most famous beach is the vast stretch of powdery white sand that runs along the western coast, Ses Illetes. With views on both Ibiza and Es Vedra, the scenery is something out of your wildest dreams!
