1. PLAYA D’EN BOSSA
Let’s start with the largest and most famous beach in Ibiza, Playa d’en Bossa. It’s the beach with the most atmosphere on the island, and you can access it straight from The Ibiza Twiins through the exit in the pool area.
Playa d’en Bossa has a wide array of options for you to have a great time: Beach clubs, restaurants, shops, leisure centres, diving centres, boat rentals…
Almost 3,000 metres long, as well as being a well-known party destination, Playa d’en Bossa also has other areas that are calmer and more family-friendly.
It’s easy to get to by car or public transport, though you can even get there on foot from the centre of the island, since it’s so close.
2. CALA SALADA – CALA SALADETA
Cala Salada is a truly gorgeous beach!
Cala Salada is a little cove surrounded by hills packed with pines, split in two by a rocky ledge. Cala Salada has turquoise waters that are clear and calm, making it an ideal place to go swimming or snorkelling without any waves getting in your way.
Located in the municipality of San Antonio, this little beach shares the stage with its younger sister, Cala Saladeta.
You’ve got to get past the rocks to reach the next beach, Cala Saladeta, a tiny cove that’s even prettier than Cala Salada, if that’s possible.
Access is via a rocky path fringed by pine woods that winds its way along the cliffs.
It’s rather like a large, natural pool, barely 100 metres long, and the nearby waters are crystal clear. A feast for the eyes. On one side, a set of charming fisherman’s cottages can be spotted.
3. SES SALINES – ES CAVALLET
Ses Salines, known for being the beach visited by the most celebrities in summer, is home to the most famous beach clubs on the island.
Stretching along 1,000 metres, it is one of the longest beaches in Ibiza. Located in the municipality of San José, it is part of a gorgeous landscape of great importance, since it is a protected area.
As for Es Cavallet, it is considered to be one of the most picturesque and best beaches in Ibiza, as well as one of the best nudist beaches in Spain.
Wild and natural, with amazing waves when the wind blows from the east, it is an ideal location for seasoned surfers.
4. PUNTA GALERA
If you like diving, this is the beach for you!
You’ll find a wild stretch of coast, with flat rock formations where you can sunbathe and enjoy a pleasant swim in its crystal clear waters.
It is one of the most striking landscapes of the Ibizan coast in San Antonio.
5. CALO D’EN SERRA
This hidden beach is one of the least explored beaches on the island, with cottages and a lovely beach bar.
Located in the Portinatx area, it’s the ideal spot for a fully relaxing day surrounded by nature.
6. CALA COMTE – CALA ESCONDIDA
One of the prettiest coves on the island, from here you can gaze out towards the nearby islets of S’Espartar, Es Bosc and Sa Conillera.
There is an even smaller cove, known as Cala Escondida among the locals, which is located in the far west and can be reached from the cliffs via steps carved into the rocks.
It is very popular among nudists and has a little beach bar that serves healthy food and has a composting toilet.
7. PLAYA DE CANAL D’EN MARTÍ
Also known as Pou des Lleó, this stunning little natural port is made up of fisherman’s cottages, making for a beautiful image that perfectly captures the essence of the Mediterranean. It is bound to turn your beach day into an oasis of peace and meditation.
8. ES BOL NOU – SA CALETA
Sa Caleta, also known as Es Bol Nou, is a small cove located in the south of Ibiza that is around 100 metres long. It is a very popular cove among the locals.
The cove is small and is worth visiting for its crystal clear waters and fantastic landscape that you can gaze out towards from the sea. This is because this Ibizan cove is located on a small cliff, where you can snap the perfect Instagram shot.
9. CALA GRACIÓ Y CALA GRACIONETA
Cala Gració is a small, calm cove with turquoise waters, golden sand, and natural surroundings filled with pines. It is located near San Antonio.
Right next to it, you can find Cala Gracioneta. This is a small cove that shares many features with its neighbour. The best way to reach it is via the little path that runs along the coast to the right of Cala Gració. Here, you can relax away from all the families.
Its clear waters, white sand, and Mediterranean vegetation stand out. It is truly a treat for the eyes.
10. CALA TARIDA
Cala Tarida, located in Sant Josep de Sa Talaia, enjoys a privileged location, between the bay of San Antonio and the city of Ibiza.
Its crystal clear, turquoise waters stand out to visitors. Those looking for comfort have all they need to enjoy a pleasant day in the sea and under the sun.
