Best Beaches in IBIZA | Cala Bassa


In the southwest of Ibiza lies Cala Bassa. It is a very popular beach, you can rent very special triple sun beds with ditto service or the normal cheaper ones from the community. Of course you can always use your own towel as well..

The water is crystal clear and the sand is soft. In early spring this a good place to shelter from the wind. In summer you can rent jetskis.

The Cala Bassa Beach Club is a great place for lunch and enjoy the deejay playing lounge music on the beach. And a little further down you will find a bar that sells more affordable snacks.

Best Beaches in IBIZA | Cala Comte


This place is almost magical; the water is bright azure, the rocks are bare and the sand is white. If you go snorkling here or are on board of a little boat you can look all the way to the bottom of the sea!

The views over sea from this spot and from the small islands are nothing less than spectacular. It is for this reason one of the old watchtowers of the island is situated here.

During summer it can be crowded here, this is also the place of the popular Sunset Ashram. Like the name suggests, this is a place to enjoy the sunset!

Best Beaches in IBIZA | Cala d'Hort


This beach is part of a national park in the southwest of Ibiza. This is the place to sit back and enjoy the magical rock Es Vedrá, lying straight off the coast. I think it is absolutely stunning and different every time I see it, breathtaking is the word that comes to mind!

During summer parking here can be quite a challenge. Try to hit the low-traffic hours, or come here in spring or fall. What we like to do on a warm summer night is arriving late when everybody is already leaving and enjoying snacks from our picknick basket!

Cala d’Hort has two traditional Spanish restaurants and you can rent small boats and jetskis.


This beach is in one of the most northern bays, even beyond Portinatx.

You can see this gorgeous below through the trees from the road. A dusty track takes you down to the clear water. A real hidden gem since it is rarely crowded. The beach is a combination of sand and pebbles, make sure to take a mat for lying down comfortably.

There is also a small chiringuito (named Chiringuito Cala Xuclar), a nice and good quality beach bar for food and drinks. It is a favourite spot for the incrowd. Make sure to reserve in time for lunch and bring cash (no cards).


One of the best beaches in Ibiza has to be Cala Vadella for me! Cala Vadella is located in the southwest of the island.

The sand is so nice and soft and the sea is lovely. With an easy slope so it is completely safe for the little kids. What is better then watching the fish swim around your feet in this crystal clear water? Pablo and Sergio are running a very professional diving school in the bay and during summer you can rent water bikes, paddle boards and small boats.

Plenty of choice for food & drinks! From a nice sandwich on the beach all the way to traditional Spanish dishes with fresh fish from the bay. One of our favourite pizzerias is also here. And another great feature is the lovely sunset that makes the beach a lively place up to and even after sunset. Check the LIVE webcam here.


Such a breathtaking place to be. It is spectacular right from the drive to the bay.

Cala Jondal is in the south of Ibiza and has something for everybody. This is the spot for the trendy beach clubs like Blue Marlin and Tropicana. Our favourite? Yemanja is just a little less trendy, but the food and the service are great and the cava-sangria is simply the best on the island 😉

The sea floor is sandy but you have to cross large pebbles to reach the sea. Luckily the beach clubs have wooden boardwalks for this. Maybe just a little bit less perfect for the little kids.


Is situated in the north of the island. If you like spacious beaches with white sand and easy access to the water, then Cala San Vicente is going to be just your thing. A perfect place for small kids too.

Enjoy the view over sea, it is picture perfect! Just ignore the rather large hotel behind you, it won’t spoil your fun. In the corner on your right is On The Beach, a nice beach club & chill-out lounge with great drinks and juices, tapas, burgers and more.

There are a few more nice restaurants in the bay, absolutely one of the best beaches in IBIZA.

Best Beaches in IBIZA | Es Cavallet


Es Cavallet is in the south of Ibiza. It is close by the salt flats and ever popular Las Salinas.

The wide sandy beach is lovely. But there is always a certain amount of seaweed on the beaches and in the water. This place is located in a natural park and this seaweed, the Posidonia, is protected and so cannot be cleared because it cleans the sea and this is the reason the water is of unbelievable clarity and the salt so pure!

From the beach you can see Ibiza Town and Formentera. There are 2 great beach restaurants; El Chiringuito is the most popular. Las Escollera is a nice place too, with LIVE music every now and then. Lovely place to have dinner, open all year. Absolutely one of the best beaches in IBIZA.

Best Beaches in IBIZA | Sa Caleta


Another one of those hidden gems in the South of Ibiza. This beach is also known as Playa d’es Bol Nou.

It is a lovely bay with red rocks and cliffs. It is divided in two parts; one part has soft sand and if you follow the little path on your right you will find a nice and quiet pebble beach.

When you arrive you walk along restaurant Sa Caleta; a very good traditional spanish restaurant where you can have a great lunch with your feet in the sand…

They serve a very good paella en fideua (a noodle paella) and also bullit de peix (a traditional fish dish with potatoes). The place is always crowded all year around, an insiders favourite; no music and trendy stuff here 😉

If you are interested in a little history; you can walk from here to the oldest Phoenician excavation on the island. Just follow the signs from the parking lot.
