Renowned for champagne-fuelled pool parties and foam-filled dancefloors, getting ‘wet and wild’ in Ibiza is usually associated with over the top indulgences, a big night out and the hangover to show for it the next day. However, over in San Antonio Bay, the Surf Lounge Ibiza team is taking the concept to a new and healthy level by offering thrillseekers the ride of lifetime on their Flowrider wave machine – the only one on the island.
Now entering its third season, a day at this health-conscious beach and sports club offers something for everyone. Those looking for some adrenalin-packed fun can have a go at taming the wild waters on either a body board or miniature long board, with lessons available for every level. Novices will feel safe in the expert hands of Surf Lounge Ibiza’s friendly (and, ladies, rather easy on the eye) surf instructors, while more advanced riders can polish their skills with impressive tricks as demonstrated by the team. And we can vouch from our recent visit that it is much easier to pick up than you might think!

If you’re a bit of a pro on the waves already, you might want to swing by Surf Lounge Ibiza on June 24th and 25th, when the venue will be hosting the European Flowboarding Championships. Bringing leading athletes from Holland, Germany, England, Spain, Finland, France and Italy to the island, this event will see one of the most important world titles being contested and allow keen amateurs to pick up a trick or two.
Also new this year, and an exciting addition to the budding fitness scene of San Antonio, is Surf Lounge Ibiza’s outdoor gym. The first ‘self-sustainable’ exercise area of its kind, it invites the public to shape up while taking in the sea views over the bay or enjoy the spectacular sunset during a spot of evening yoga. This healthy approach to holiday fun is also reflected in the beach club’s food menu, which proudly features what has been voted the ‘Best Hamburger 2015’ on the White Isle by culinary website Ibiza Foodie. Marketing manager Berni Faus says of the venue’s increased focus on the gastronomic side, “Our restaurant is being reinvented and converted into a place to come simply for the quality of its dishes, we will organise live music concerts every weekend in the month of April, as well as themed parties. But Surf Lounge Ibiza can also accommodate business meetings – all kinds of events, really.”
The lure of a juicy burger and chilled beer or cocktail is just one of the many things that should appeal to visitors who prefer a more relaxed approach to their holiday. If you’re not quite up for braving the giant artificial wave, the Surf Lounge Ibiza invites you to chill out by the pool or take over one of the spacious Balinese sunbeds. And there’s even the opportunity for a bit of retail therapy, with the in-house shop jam-packed full of stylish swimwear, accessories and sports gear.
So whether you’re looking for a fun family day out or a place to hang with a group of friends who have different interests, The Surf Lounge Ibiza offers the perfect solution.
And on Saturdays, during the month of April, you can celebrate a great day out at the venue’s Rock On The Wave concerts. The series of gigs combines live music with tapas until it concludes on April 30th with its annual Spring Party.
As the Surf Lounge Ibiza crew puts it, “make sure to visit us, regardless of your age or flowboarding abilities, because admission to our facilities is free and we are sure they will surprise you!”
