The Most Beautiful Beaches to Discover on Ibiza












Whether you’re heading to the White Isle to experience the world-famous clubs, or enjoy a relaxing escape on the quieter areas of the island, you’ll need to know which Ibiza beaches are the very best. The Balearic Island is bordered by kilometre after kilometre of soft sand lapped by the shimmering Mediterranean ocean, and individual beaches range from the large and lively to secluded and secretive – so here’s our guide to the most beautiful beaches to work on your tan during your Ibiza holiday.


Cala Saladita

Most of the beaches around San Antonio can become extremely busy during the summer months, so to give yourself the best chance of finding a sunny spot to yourself, head to Cala Saladita. To reach this clandestine beach you’ll need to traverse the rocky divide between Cala Saladita and its neighbouring beach, Cala Salada, but you’ll be rewarded with a tranquil stretch of sand enclosed by a rocky headland that doesn’t block the Ibiza sunshine. Just get there before midday to avoid the intense heat on your journey, and make sure you bring water and snacks as there are no amenities.

Although most Ibiza beaches are impressive, few make an impact quite like Cala d’en Serra, a northern beach bounded by sheer cliffs and leading into deep azure waters. This beach is where you’re most likely to find the locals, which is a testament to its tranquil nature, and few boats enter the water here too meaning that you can swim, snorkel and sunbathe in total harmony.

The name of this location actually refers to the three smaller beaches that make up this area, but each of them is equally picturesque and peaceful, even during the high season. Portinatx, on the north-west coast is known for being a family-friendly resort, with welcoming hotels like the Club Vista Bahia located just a short stroll from the beaches, where the water is clear and shallow and ideal for paddling with young children. Rocky areas create an attractive backdrop for lazy days in the Ibiza sun, but there’s more than enough sand for everyone, and what’s more there won’t be a decibel of dance music to be heard!

 If stretching out on a sun-lounger, sipping cocktails and people-watching whilst Balearic beats are carried by on the breeze sounds like your idea of perfection, make Playa den Bossa, the longest beach on Ibiza, your first stop. This famously gorgeous beach puts you right at the heart of the fun on the south coast of Ibiza, close to cosmopolitan Ibiza town, and the beach bars that stretch along the sand are always filled with chic people from all corners of Europe.


Cala Gracioneta

A compact and charming cove on the west coast of the island, Cala Gracioneta is a great option for families as the waters are very shallow and calm, plus there are plenty of trees offering a shady place to rest or take a midday nap. The narrow entrance to the water also makes it easy for parents to keep a watchful eye over their children, plus there are plenty of great restaurants and beach bars nearby for when it’s time for an ice cream break.
