March 20, 2023

Ibiza is a beautiful island known, in addition to its never-ending parties, for its beautiful beaches and coves with crystal clear waters. There’s something for everyone: sandy beaches, beaches with pebbles and rocks, calm beaches and party beaches… We’re going to give you some recommendations for the best beaches and coves of Ibiza so you don’t miss out.

Cala Salada:

North of San Antonio lies Cala Salada and Cala Saladeta, which are joined by a small path. Both are quiet coves with golden sand and clear watersurrounded by pine trees, both virtually undeveloped, making them two favorites among visitors.

Cala Bassa:

In the San Jose area, to the west of the island, you’ll find this small bay with turquoise waters where a large stand of pine trees and junipers provide shelter from the sun. It has several restaurants and amenities. For this reason, and because the water there forms a natural swimming pool, it’s a perfect pace to take kids.

Cala Comte:

Located very close to Cala Bassa, its rugged surroundings, breathtaking views of the island of Sa Conillera, and incredible range of colors in its waters, make it one of the most famous and most beautiful of the island. It has several bars and restaurants, and if you head down the beach a way (to the left if you’re facing the sea) there is a little inlet where you can skinny dip.

Las Salinas:

One of the most famous beaches and a favorite place among ships to drop anchor. Although it is one of the most beautiful, it is also important to know that it is one of the busiest in the summer. In addition to several restaurants and bars with music and great atmosphere, you’ll find street vendors with everything from dresses to sandwiches on offer, not to mention freshly made mojitos. There are street parades on the most popular holidays for which vacationers are often offered free entrance or tickets at a reduced price.

Cala D’hort:

Another one of the best coves on Ibiza. A small cove with unsurpassed views of the small island of Es Vedrá, one of the most famous vistas in Ibiza. You’ll find it well worth it to savor a good rice or fish dish in any of its three excellent restaurants. Stroll up to the Tower des Savinar, known as the Torre del Pirata or Pirate’s Tower, for a panoramic view that will make you fall in love!

Es Cavallet:

One of the longest beaches on the island and one of the last strongholds for lovers of nude beaches. In high season parking can pose a bit of a problem, so it’s best to arrive early. Despite its popularity, due to its length, it’s always possible to find a quiet place to enjoy the beach’s wild beauty. It has several restaurants and beach bars.

There are many other beaches and coves on Ibiza that are well worth visiting, such as Cala San Vicente, Sa Caleta, Portinatx, Cala Jondal, Cala Vadellaand Cala Nova. We recommend that you try to see all that you can in order to make the most of your stay and discover which of Ibiza’s beaches and coves are your favorites.
