Top 5 Beaches
An amazingly hard choice to make as the beaches on Ibiza each have their own charm!
Cala Olivera is a little tricky to find, but an absolute pleasure once you get there. It is down a very long & bumpy camino and is a small, rocky beach with not much sand. There is a lovely beach bar but no restrooms. The crystal clear waters are fantastic for snorkelling and there are even some decent rocks to jump or dive from. There is plenty of space for parking but be sure to arrive early!
Nestled between two large mountains, Cala Llonga beach is well protected and has all the necessary amenities including 2 beach bars with restrooms and many other restaurants. It is a wide, sandy beach with no lack of beachbeds or umbrellas & also has showers. Pedalos are available for hire and there are swings and climbing frames right on the beach as well as a fully equipped playground with picnic tables. A great choice for a day out for the whole family, with a nearby pub or 2 for the dads!
Benirras is the perfect chillout beach but has lots of activities for youngsters too. If you´re feeling particularly energetic, a swim out to what is known as King´s Rock is always great fun, stopping off to visit some of the caves on the way. Pedalos can also be hired by the hour allowing for plenty of time to snorkel. There is a volleyball net set up at the back of the beach for anyone to use. The beach has showers and there are many restaurants to choose from as well as a little shop. The sunset is beautiful from this beach and people hang out until well after the sun has set. If you are visiting on a Sunday, be sure to take your drum or bongo with you and join in the jam session!
Ses Salines, or Las Salinas, is a beautiful, sandy beach over 2km long. It is a great place for people spotting & socialising but also perfect for soaking up the sunshine well in to the evening. There are excellent beach bars & restaurants scattered along it and some of them even serve food right to your sun lounger! The sea is shallow for a long way out, making it extremely safe for small children. There are plenty of water sports available as well as sail boats for hire and parking is generally no problem. Exploring the sand dunes here is also great fun & be sure to take a walk along the beach and up to the tower for some fantastic views.
Cala Des Moltons
Cala Des Moltons is a beautiful little hidden cove that you can only reach by walking down a little path from San Miguel beach. Highly recommended for peace & quiet! There is a beach shack with delicious snacks - be sure to ask about the sardine feasts! There are no restrooms but it´s only a 3 minute walk back to the beach of San Miguel which has many bars and restaurants on it.
