8 Picturesque Ibiza Locations for Wedding Portraits in 2023

There are so many unique and picturesque locations on the island of Ibiza that would be perfect for couple portraits!

I’d highly recommend setting aside some time during your stay to have a couple portrait photoshoot with just the two of you. A pre or post-wedding photoshoot on the island is a great way to make the most of your destination wedding experience (and the weather) before returning home.

So I’ve created a guide to 8 awesome locations that would be perfect for wedding portraits in Ibiza. Check them out along with photos below!

Capella de Sa Talaia, San Antonio

If you’re happy with a short hike, the views from the top of the hill overlooking San Antonio Bay are stunning! Here you’ll find Capella de Sa Talaia, a small chapel and you’ll be rewarded with 360-degree views of the island. From the seafront, it’s roughly a 20-minute uphill hike to get to the top. The path up to the chapel is rough and rocky in places so decent footwear is a must for this location. 

If you’re visiting for a summer wedding, I’d recommend visiting this location late in the evening to avoid the harsh light from the sun in your photos. Plus, walking up this hill in the middle of the day in the sun won’t be a very fun experience! San Antonio Bay has incredible sunsets, so plan to visit this location in time to catch the sunset from the top. I promise you won’t be disappointed and the light will be incredible for your photos!

San Antonio Bay

If you’re chasing the infamous Ibiza sunset for your wedding portraits, another stunning location is the bay of San Antonio itself. Right on the beach you’ll find places such as Cafe Mambo, where people come from all over the world to visit and watch the sunset with a cocktail. Don’t worry if you can’t get a table though, you can just as easily watch the sunset from the rocky shoreline below all the bars and restaurants.

If you’re visiting in peak season, you’ll likely be sharing this view with many other tourists, especially in the evening. So, if you’re looking for a peaceful location for your wedding portraits, this might not be the right spot for you. Visiting out of season? You can still catch awesome sunsets and you won’t have to wrestle with tourists for the best photo spots. Here are a few sunset photos over the bay taken in March! 

But if you’re looking for a party atmosphere and a taste of the Ibiza nightlife, San Antonio Bay is the place to visit for your photos!

Es Vedrà Viewpoint (Mirador des Vedrà)

If you’re looking for a more remote, magical-looking island location, nothing beats the backdrop of Es Vedrà.

Es Vedrà is a giant rocky island off the southwest coast of Ibiza. One of Ibiza’s famous landmarks, Es Vedrà has a serene, peaceful quality to it. You can park at one of the viewpoints and walk towards the cliff edge which takes around 10 minutes. Just like San Antonio, Es Vedrà is in the prime position for you to watch the sun go down. Your wedding portraits here would be incredible! Just be sure not to venture too close to the edge, especially if you’re scared of heights!

I took these photos at sunset, it was so lovely to watch as the sea and sky changed colour. Wedding portraits here will definitely be ones to print out and hang at home!

Es Vedrà can be viewed from many different spots on the southwest coast but this is definitely one of the most spectacular.

Time and Space, Cala Llentia

North of Es Vedra up the coastline in Cala Llentia you’ll find Time and Space, Ibiza’s answer to Stonehenge. Time and Space by sculptor Andrew Rogers, was commissioned by Guy Laliberté for his famous Can Soleil mansion right next door. It’s definitely a location worth visiting, any time of day. 

Time and Space in Ibiza

You’ll notice the piles of stones on top of the columns where people with good aim have thrown them. Time and Space makes a great silhouette and would be awesome for couple photos at sunset. On a clear night, it would be a great spot for photos with the stars under the night sky. 

Nearby to the sculpture, you’ll stumble upon the gates of paradise, another piece of artwork consisting of two doors that open to reveal a great line of sight to Es Vedra. This spot would be a great unique location for your wedding portraits!

Parking is available just a few minutes’ walk away. 

Festival Club, San Jose

If you’re an adventurous couple and you’re looking for a more unique location in Ibiza, away from the main tourist areas, then Festival Club might just be the perfect spot for you!

Abandoned Festival Club in Ibiza

Festival Club was a huge outdoor entertainment complex which opened to the public in 1972 but lasted just a couple of years before closing its doors. Since then, it’s been abandoned and has become a haven for urban explorers and street artists. Every surface is now home to spray-paint graffiti and artwork. It’s such a cool place to explore if you’re into Urbex and dystopian locations! Festival Club is surrounded by trees and yet still has amazing views. Wedding portraits here would be incredibly cool and offer so much potential with totally unique backgrounds everywhere you look. 

Festival Club is easy to access if you know where to go, and you can drive or walk up the path and park right next to the entrance. Like any abandoned/derelict location, take care when exploring and be sure to watch your step and stay safe. 

The Abandoned Hotel at Cala d’en Serra

Like the sound of exploring an abandoned building but want to visit the beach too? The abandoned hotel at Cala d’en Serra will give you the best of both worlds. 

Way out on the North coast of Ibiza, this location is quite remote and involves a bit of off-roading or a long scramble down a windy single-track road to the bottom. However, it’s worth the effort to get there! The Hotel is huge, has lots of rooms to explore and loads of photo potential.

The view over the bay from the hotel platform is stunning, too!

Once you’ve explored the ruins, head down to the small beach for more photos. If you’re lucky, you might even have the beach to yourself! The water here is crystal clear and would make the perfect spot for your own private beach photo session!

You’ll be able to get cool urban portraits as well as romantic couple photos on the sand.

Platja de Cala Xarraca

Nearby, another great beach location is Platja de Cala Xarraca, the perfect blend of sand, sea, and rocky coastline to explore. If you’re lucky, you’ll find the sea swing dangling above the water from the rocks, a great spot for couple photos but be sure to bring swimwear! This is a popular beach spot in the summer, so visit earlier in the morning to avoid the crowds! 

The house on the hill, Casa Cova makes for a beautiful backdrop, you can even tell your friends you hired it out to stay in whilst you were there – I won’t tell if you don’t!

Dalt Vila (Ibiza Old Town), Ibiza Town

Last but by no means least, my favourite location for wedding portraits lies within the walls of Ibiza’s Old Town, Dalt Vila.

View of Castell d'Eivissa from the walls in Ibiza

Dalt Vila is a fortified hilltop settlement, with a cathedral at its heart. To get to the top, you’ll walk uphill, through winding cobbled streets and tunnels. Be sure to stop and catch your breath a few times on the way up as the views of Ibiza town below are stunning. You can see across the rooftops and all the way out of the bay. 

The streets of Dalt Vila are absolutely perfect for couple portraits. Make sure to visit when it’s cooler outside, in the morning or evening. Ibiza gets really hot during the summer months and an uphill walk in the midday sun will only make you sweat in your photos!
