As much a treasured part of Ibiza as Pacha, Privilege, or Las Salinas beach. In spite of the rise of its brasher, newer neighbours, Mambo, Savannah, Kanya at al, the name on everybody's lips is still Café del Mar, which was built in 1980 and designed by well known Catalan architect Lluis Géell. The idea is a simple one, you sit by the shores of the bay of Calo des Moro in San Antonio and admire the stunning sunsets to a backdrop of ambient and eclectic music provided by the DJ in the bar. The simplicity of the event and the pleasure one takes in the perfect combination of scenery, beautiful weather and the wonderfully chilled music, make every sunset a special one. Even now, after 10 years on the island, we are still awed by the silence which descends on the bar as the sun reluctantly gives up its last rays, before vanishing below the horizon. One of the reasons for the amazing success of this bar are the excellent chillout albums which have been released annually since 1994, pioneering the chillout genre at the time of the first release. There have since been many imitators, but only one true Café del Mar... You can order each of these albums online through Amazon. They make excellent presents and will grace any CD collection. We recommend mixing a jug of Sangría (red wine, slices of orange and lemon, a dash of sparkling wine, lots of ice and sugar to taste), putting on one of these CDs, closing your eyes and floating away...
