Favourite October restaurant. Restaurant S’Illa Des Bosc, Cala Conte
S’illa Des Bosc has possibly one of the most beautiful locations in Ibiza. It sits elegantly above Cala Conte beach with uninterrupted views over the sea. We have been visiting S’illa Des Bosc for 18 years and we have never been disappointed. The location is simply wonderful, the food is outstanding and the staff are super friendly. Best of all, prices are reasonable, for a top location and excellent food.
We visited the restaurant only 3 days ago. Check out the photo above, this was taken from our table during sunset. Amazing food and a sunset to die for, how can life get better?
How are prices? If you want a last minute Villa deal, don’t look any further. Luxury villas from as little as £60 per person per week
The great thing about October, is you can enjoy Ibiza’s best month at rock botton prices. Even the night clubs are cheaper.

The best beaches!
Cala Nova Beach
Cala Nova Beach is a wonderful sandy beach with pristine crystal clear water. Cala Nova has two beaches. One beach is located 1km from Es Canar, which in turn is about 5km from Santa Eulalia. The other can be reached by driving to San Carlos, then follow the signs to Cala Llenya. We prefer the beach the Cala Llenya end. Its quieter, and has a beautiful wood just behind the beach with ample parking. There is a wonderful Chiringuito on the beach and one of our favourite restaurants in Ibiza, Aiyanna overlooks the beach. We are regulars at Cala Nova, its perfect for families and sun worshippers.
The section of beach entered via Es Canar is much more popular. Guests from the Es Canar hotels populate the beach in the summer, it can therefore get a little crowded. The beach has two great restuarants both owned by the Atzaro Group. Atzaro Beach Club and the The Chiringuito . The beach club is fine dining and boasts amazing views across Cala Nova Beach, the Chiringuito is kinder on your wallet.
Both beaches are incredible, and on a windy day you will see lots of surfers and body boarders. Cala Nova is one of the best beaches in Ibiza to catch some great waves.
If you are not hiring a car, there is a bus service from Ibiza Town to Cala Nova, albeit fairly infrequent.
What’s the countryside like in September?
The countryside in Ibiza during October is similar to September, green and fertile. October is the perfect time to enjoy the huge choice of walks across Ibiza. Check out Walking Ibiza who organise some excellent walks throughout Ibiza. October is also the perfect month to get your bicycle out. Ibiza has an excellent road system and plenty of cycle paths. Cycling is very popular in Ibiza, especially in the months from October to May.
What’s the clubbing scene like in October?
The first two weeks of October are when the big clubs actually close. Pacha, Hi, Ushuaia, Amnesia and Privelege. There is so much choice, but take note: The party not to miss, is the DC10 closing party. Clubbers fly in just for this event.

Halloween in Ibiza
Halloween is a big event in Ibiza, everyone makes a huge effort and it’s loads of fun. Many restuarants throw big parties but the main events are held at Pacha and Pikes Hotel.
Our absolute favouite Halloween party is at Pikes Hotel
The Pikes Halloween party is notorious, and very popular. Its worth pre booking tickets. Check out Pikes calendar for October.
Special events in Ibiza during October
The Ibiza Food Festival is the stand out event in October.
The Ibiza Food Festival will create a platform for groups of foodies to dine together. Dining has always played an important role within our evolution and culture. Not only serving as a place to consume nutritious food but also a springboard to forge strong relationships with those we dine with.
LEARN : TALKS & WORKSHOPS
Ibiza is home to a wide and delicious mix of natural produce, cutting-edge chefs, exciting eating establishments, creative and culinary versed venues. We provide a platform to learn from the best and one another – through traditions, history and new methodology. Creatively translating them into modern methods of cooking, developing, growing and practicing.
LISTEN : MUSIC & PERFORMANCE
EXPLORE : ADVENTURE & ACTIVITIES
When it comes to travelling around Ibiza in October, we’d reiterate everything that we mentioned in last month’s guide, Ibiza in July.
Whilst not meaning to sound all doom-and-gloom here, there are a couple of things worth bearing in mind.
For the most part, Ibiza a very safe place. However, there are some bad eggs out there and this is the time of year when pro thieves tend to operate.
When you are out and about, only take the cash you will need and the most essential items. Leave everything else (passport, credit cards etc) securely locked up in a safe and make sure all doors, windows and/or gates to your accommodation are locked.
Be security conscious
And never, never, never leave valuables in your hire car.
No point even tucking them away out of sight and thinking they will be fine. These days, there are devices that can clone your car alarm system and disable the locks like it ain’t no thing.
And while we’re at it…
TIP: Always have your driving license on you or carry a photocopy of your passport. Spanish law requires you to carry photo ID at all times. Being on the receiving end of a policeman’s disapprovingly wagging finger (or a fine if you’re unlucky) is definitely best avoided.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our mini guide and don’t forget to tune in for the next exciting instalment, Ibiza in November.
