Ibiza may have been famous for its techno fuelled nights and well, techno fuelled nights. However, as of late, word of the island´s beauty is starting to spread globally and, finally, its laidback charm is shining through – with a focus firmly on its beaches. From local to sceney and everything in between, we’ve compiled a list of the beaches not-to-be-missed while in Ibiza.
1. Cala Xuclar
For when you really need to get away from it all. This stamp-sized cala (cove) on the northwest of the island is as small as it is peaceful. Along with its ramshackle fishermen huts that dot the horseshoe enclave, this little haven is known for its snorkelling. Walk around the rocks and dive in.
2. Las Salinas
This long stretch of sand is frequented by the Ibizan hipster crowd – thanks to its scattering of chiringuitos pumping out Balearic beats. Make like a local and head towards the end of the beach to bar, San Trinxa. Think great food, tunes (thanks to owner/DJ Jon Sa Trinxa) and a crowd of returning locals.
3. Cala Salada
One of the more popular beaches north of San Antonio, and it’s no surprises why. Apart from its bright turquoise water, the postcard-worthy spot boasts a dramatic rocky backdrop, so expect to top up your tan on a slab. But that’s no bad thing...
4. Cala Conta (San Antonio)
Ask any local or returning visitor for the best sunset on the island of Ibiza and Cala Conta will most likely be the response. A varied beach that features a rocky coastline, sand dunes and a hidden area (well, sort of) for those who prefer to go au naturel. If you’re looking to watch the sun go down with a drink in your hand – Sunset Ashram, the hippy-esque bar that overlooks the beach is a must-do.
5. Sa Caleta
Known for its backdrop of dramatic red cliffs and shallow water, this pebble beach, 15 minutes from Ibiza town, is the perfect spot for a leisurely splash, and if the mood strikes, its namesake restaurant serves up some of the best paella this side of the island. If you ask really nicely, it may just be served on the water’s edge, ad hoc table and all. Don’t leave without trying the white sangria.
The local’s beach. Just two kilometres from Ibiza town, the long biscuit-hued stretch of sand is the perfect spot for those ‘can’t decide what to do’ days. With a great selection of laid back bars and restaurants, which range from breakfast to late night on the sands edge, expect to eat, swim, tan, and repeat.
Not really a beach but a natural cave and well-kept secret amongst Ibizans. Don’t expect signposts or well mapped-out directions. However, find the cave and be rewarded with the best view of Es Vedra – the limestone uninhabited rock island which stands at 400 metres. Can’t find Atlantis, try Cala D’Hort, a beautiful beach which deserves a mention in its own right.
8. Cala Jondal
It wouldn’t be a list of Ibiza beaches without at least one mention of a white sun lounger. And for your pick of the litter, head to Cala Jondal, the beach that attracts cashed up vogueish sunseekers and money makers. Make the most of the scene, and book a bed at Blue Marlin – word to the wise – up your credit card limit.
9. Aïgues Blanques, Es Canar
This gently-sloping beach gets its name from the white foam that forms in the water when it´s whipped up by the sea breeze. When it´s calm, it´s simply a stunning turquoise. Aigua Blanques is also an official nudist beach: no tan lines here!
10. Cala d´Hort, Ibiza Town
Cala d´Hort is part of a National Park, created to safeguard it against tourist development. In 1999, 11,000 environmentalists fought the so-called ´Battle of Cala d´Hort´ in a protest against the building of a hotel, golf course and desalinisation plant in the area. You´ll see why they were so keen to preserve this scenic spot.
11. Cala Vadella, Sant Josep de sa Talaia
Cala Vadella is a family-friendly beach of the highest order, with lovely white powder sand sloping down to a shallow, sheltered bay, plus all the amenities to keep everyone happy on a day at the beach.
This island is a little Spanish paradise, with beaches to suit all kinds of tourists; families, couples, friends, LGTB, and solo alike.
