Atzaró Beach open all year – The Mediterranean doesn’t close!
Due to popular demand, Atzaró Beach, the family run and family friendly hotspot which brings the signature style, service and quality of Atzaró Agroturismo to the beautiful beachfront of Cala Nova all summer, will now stay open all year round.
A favourite of locals, Atzaró lovers since its opening in 2012, Atzaró Beach is famed for its authentic Mediterranean food, spectacular location and homely customer service. Born and bred Ibicencans and devoted cuisine connoisseurs, the Atzaró family have decided to keep the beach club open after the summer crowds have disappeared, so islanders, residents and out-of-season visitors can continue to enjoy the spectacular location and traditional rice and fish dishes, all year round. In their own words: “The Mediterranean does not close, so why should we?”
Located on the island’s east coast in the unspoilt bay of Cala Nova, Atzaró Beach is protected from the elements, guests can enjoy the natural beauty of the beach whatever the weather, as the curved bay stretches out with clean golden sand, overlooking the turquoise water, which changes from calm and flat in summer to wild waves in winter. The stylish décor echoes the surroundings, with wooden floors, clean white washed tables, with perfectly pressed linen table cloths, and a hint of aqua, inspired by the Mediterranean sea and the local fishing boats which supply the restaurant seafood delights.
The Atzaró family see Atzaró Beach’s Es Restaurant as ‘a new stage in Mediterranean gastronomic tasting’. The Mediterranean menu includes tapas plates, plus their famed fresher than fresh seafood dishes and authentic Ibicenco seafood rice and paellas. Among the many highlights, are the locally caught ‘Gallo San Pedro’ (served fresh from the grill with a squeeze of lemon, or as part of the mouth-watering fish platter). Another must is the native Ibicencan fish, Rotja, delivered fresh to the restaurant on a daily basis from trusted fishermen. Cooked slowly and to perfection in the oven and served with potatoes and green pepper, the traditional style pays homage to the restaurant’s heritage.
The famed rice dishes are all made using traditional Ibicenco recipes, passed down through the family over generations. Brimming with fresh seafood, the succulent rice is soft (but with just the right about of bite) and lets the simplicity of the natural flavours speak for themselves. The lobster paella, is the Atzaró Beach showstopper, served with a whole, chunky lobster on a bed of saffron-infused rice. Alternatively, for paella enthusiasts who love the flavour but hate the mess, Aztaro serve ‘blind paella’; de-shelled, de-boned, and ready to enjoy, minus the sticky fingers. For those not feeling like fish, a range of locals meats, Galician steak and salads fill the menu …with some hearty new additions due for winter (watch this space).
Understanding the true beauty of Ibiza’s nature in the winter, and wanting to share it with the world, the team behind Atzaró Beach are also giving the venue a new winter wardrobe, complete with toasty outdoor heaters, and cosy blankets to snuggle under and admire the sea view and let the world pass by. The perfect place to enjoy the Mediterranean – all year round.
