Ibiza Beaches...Ibiza has hundreds of beaches and secluded coves so no matter where you are you are never too far from one of them. Below you will find a list of the most popular ones but this is not by any means all of them so get in your car and drive, you never know what amazing discovery awaits you.
Playa D’En Bossa – one of the longest stretches of sand on the island with spectacular clear waters and excellent views of Dalt Villa. South side of the beach is very popular with wind surfers, the far end of the beach getting away from Ibiza town is calmer and quieter than the end closest to Ibiza town. If you are looking to party head over to Bora Bora Bar. This Ibiza beach is lined with bars and restaurants some offering some wonderful fish dishes.
Cala Talamanca – this is a smaller, quieter, more family oriented beach, perfect if want to chill on a sandy beach. A wooden boardwalk runs the length of the beach with a good choice of bars and restaurants along its length.
Cala D’Hort – a small beach with a spectacular view of the mystical island of Es Vedra. There are a couple of excellent seafood and local restaurants serving delicious local dishes.
Las Salinas – located at the most southern tip of the island is one of the most famous beaches to spot celebrities and to party. The atmosphere and the turquoise waters of the beach more than make up for the higher prices. It is definitely worth visiting!
Es Cavallet – one of the two official nudist beaches on the island. A meeting place for Ibiza’s gay community, one end of the beach features a quality restaurant while the other is home to the busiest gay hang out.
Cala Conta – located west of San Antonio after Cala Bassa it is beautiful beach, smaller than the previous ones but definitely one of the best beaches on the island with breathtaking views and beautiful turquoise waters. During high season this beach is very popular so it is best to either get there early or come later on in the afternoon. The two main beaches are separated by a restaurant with fabulous views.
Benirras – located at the north end of the island it is a pretty beach with crystal clear waters. On Sundays around sunset is time to celebrate the Fiesta de los Tambores when drummers descend to the beach to drum down the sunset. During this time the beach gets crowed so make sure you get there early to find a parking spot.
