The 8 most beautiful beaches in Ibiza
That Ibiza has beautiful beaches is common knowledge. We’ve put together our favorites for you. We have taken a selection of beaches all over the island. Enjoy an early morning sun with a dip in the sea to the east at San Calos and Santa Eularia. Or catch that breathtaking sunset in the west. Have fun with our top 8 most beautiful beaches in Ibiza!
1. Cala Conta
The most beautiful and clearest waters on the island can be found at Cala Conta. The beach itself is split into two parts, to the left and right of Sunset Ashram. The sand is very fine but do try to claim your spot in time. It can get very crowded here, especially in high season. From the beach you have a view of some beautiful islands a little further offshore. The sunset here is also fantastic!
2. Cala d’en Serra
An idyllic beach in the north. Cala d’en Serra is a small but very beautiful beach. To the left are some fishing shacks, there are a limited number of beach beds and paraols. A perfect place to go with your loved one. Since this beach is a long drive for most anyway, it is often quiet here as well.
3. Cala d’Hort
The stunning view of Es Vedra alone earns Cala d’Hort a spot on this list. The beach features beautiful white sand and a few restaurants from which, again, you have a stunning view. In high season it is often very crowded here; we recommend arriving a few hours before sunset. This one is also beautiful from here.
4. Cala Gracioneta
Especially its intimate location makes Cala Gracioneta belong in this list. It is a small beach that you enter through the back of Chiringuito restaurant. Several loungers are available and a sultry lounge beat sounds in the background. To the left is a path carved out of the rock where you can walk. The water itself is not very clear but the cozy bay makes up for a lot.
5. Cala Salada
Cala Salada is a popular beach just above San Antonio. What we recommend is to walk on the right side over the rocks (or along the top) to the small sister beach Cala Saladeta. By the way, the rocks are gorgeous and a perfect place to sunbathe. The beach is sheltered by the forest surrounding it. The water itself is beautifully clear and a popular snorkeling spot. In summer there are many boats in the bay.
6. Cala Tarida
A very well known and beautiful family beach in the west of Ibiza. Except for Cala Conta, the water here is the most beautiful on the entire island. It is a very large beach with a rocky plateau in the middle. A popular place for children to play around. The beach is white and there are many beach beds and umbrellas. There are also a number of restaurants right on the beach.
7. Cala Vadella
Cala Vadella is a beautiful sandy beach. This beach is especially popular with families with children. Parents can take a seat on the sunbeds. There are also occasional Balinese beds in high season. For some lunch or dinner, we recommend Can Jaume, a restaurant that sits on the right side of the beach.
8. Las Salinas
Las Salinas is one of the largest beaches on the island. A beautiful white beach surrounded by dunes with beautiful pine trees. In the water are several rock formations. Some of Ibiza’s best beach clubs are also located on this beach.
