World-famous Ibiza is one of the top holiday destinations in the whole of Europe, with millions of tourists descending on the Spanish island every year. In 2016, Ibiza Spotlight reported that a record-breaking 7.1 million people made the journey over to the “White Isle.”

The island is widely thought of as the place-to-be throughout the Summer months, with tourists eagerly flying over to soak up the sun, party in the nightclubs, and take in the gorgeous scenery.“All-night raver, boho-cool hippy, blissed-out beach lover — Ibiza is all this and more to the many, many fans who have soft spot for the Balearics’ party-hard sister,” notes leading travel publication Lonely Planet. 

But whether you’re in Ibiza to party, to relax and enjoy the island’s beautiful scenery, or just to spend quality time in the sun with family and friends, you’ll need to refuel. And like many other holiday destinations in Europe, Ibiza has plenty of vegan-friendly restaurants catering to the growing consumer demand for plant-based foods.

Ibiza Spotlight notes, “more and more people are embracing the vegan lifestyle, and Ibiza is no exception with some excellent vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants around.” It continues, “Eating a plant-based diet on this island is easy with some outstanding places offering truly inventive dishes.”

Here is the ultimate guide to the very best vegan-friendly restaurants in one of Europe’s most sought-after partying destinations; each serves fresh, beautifully presented, plant-based food that is so tasty, you won’t want to go home.
