The truth is you don’t have to look very far to find the best beaches on Ibiza… nearly all the beaches on the island are of the picture postcard type: calm waters, fine sand, clean and white, and many shades of blue make you spoilt for choice. But here, what we are offering you is “the best of the best”, the ones you simply can’t miss out on however bad your hangover is
Ses Salines: this is one of the best known on the island and the entire Mediterranean. It’s hardly surprising that the best-known faces in the world of sport, music or cinema come to this beach year after year. As it lies within the Ses Salines Nature Reserve, this beach is protected, so its natural environment is virtually unspoiled. Its white sand, its crystal-clear waters and the views of Formentera will undoubtedly make Las Salinas one of your favorite beaches.
Cala Salada: ideal for viewing the island’s famous sunsets, it is a cove lying only a few miles from Sant Antoni de Portmany. The many shades of Mediterranean blue and the greens of the pine groves dominate the landscape. The only problem is its success, i.e., it is usually crowded. However, there is a way of getting around this inconvenience, a narrow path over the cliffs takes you to Cala Saladeta, the cove’s little sister, but the beach is just as beautiful.
Cala D’Hort: Cala d’Hort is a narrow and sandy beach, with calm and crystalline waters, which makes it one of the best, not so much because of its beauty, but its amazing views overlooking the mysterious island of Es Vedrà and Es Vedranell. There are a few bars and restaurants from which to gaze upon the wonderful views. A virtually unspoilt natural environment offering many gastronomic options in the area where visitors can enjoy excellent rice and fish dishes, make this cove a “must” on your list of Ibizan beaches to visit.
Cala Xarraca: long, with more pebbles than sand, and with a big and surprising drop from the shore to the seabed (be careful!) it is definitely one of the very best beaches on Ibiza. The advantage is that it doesn’t generally feature in the guidebooks, so, if you want to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet, this is your beach. Scuba divers find it the best beach on Ibiza for this sport, amongst other reasons, because it has the clearest waters on the whole island.
Cala Bassa: Bassa Cove is a genuine natural swimming pool with shallow, calm and turquoise waters that make it ideal for water sports. Many pine trees, junipers and tamarisks surround this beach, providing shade and a natural shelter from the sun.
Cala Comte: Cala Comte is an incredible cove, and boasts one of the best and most beautiful beaches on Ibiza, immediately captivating visitors. Its curious rocky cliffs, down which steps have been sculpted to enable you to reach the beach, the little islets dotted around the horizon or s’Illa d’es Bosc are just some of the features that will appeal.
It also has one of the most spectacular beach bars on the island with magnificent views. Finally, it must be said that Cala Comte is the most highly recommended beaches from which to see the best Ibizan sunsets.
And as we’ve already pointed out, these are just some of the best beaches on the island, but the coast of Ibiza has loads of marvelous coves and beaches, each and every one with its own charm and appeal. Come and discover them for yourself!
