Which beaches in Ibiza are the best?
Ibiza has many diverse beaches – from quiet and calm to crowded and party ones. In the northern part of Ibiza there are calm beaches, ideal for family holidays. Near the the capital of Ibiza and near San Antonio there are beach clubs that organize a great beach party.
Salinas beach, Playa den Bossa and Bora Bora
To feel the real vibes of Ibiza, it’s worth going to the most-known Playa den Bossa. Playa d’en Bossa is a long, sandy beach, there are frequent waves here. It is a built-up, tourist zone. We find here many beach clubs where music plays all day and night and party hotels, such as: Hard Rock hotel or Ushuaia. You can go to crazy BORA BORA, where there is no moderation, or participate in a party at the pool or if you want to chillout you should go to the more exclusive Nassau Beach. However, we won’t find crystal clear water here, unfortunately.
A few kilometers away there’s also a very popular Las Salinas beach, beloved by the rich and famous. There are several exclusive restaurants here, quite expensive but with good food. Salinas also has a short section where we can meet nudists. Being on Playa den Bossa or Salinas we will definitely find out about the most interesting events, because it’s here that the daily promotions of various events take place. Next to Salinas there are several separate tiny bays. If you need more privacy and peace, it’s worth taking a walk further. The water here is clean and definitely more transparent than on the Bossa beach, but it’s not the same as we can see on the west side of the island. It’s easy to get to Salinas, because there are buses from Ibiza and Playa den Bossa.
Beaches near to San Antonio Bay
The most beautiful and cleanest beaches are in the environs of San Antonio – my favorite is definitely Cala Comte. It’s a beautiful , but you have to go there much earlier in order to take the place, because in the afternoon it is very crowded. In the evening, as on all the western beaches, we can admire the beautiful sunset, but in my opinion, the best is from the small charming Cala d’Hort beach with a view of the magical Es Vedra island Noteworthy is also Cala Bassa – the most popular among families with children because the water is rather shallow, and you can stroll around neighbourhood. I was here with my son and we spent a great time together. A bit further you can jump to transparent water from a few meter bluff – adrenaline rush guaranteed.
The small beach of Cala Salada is also famous for cliff jumping from the bluffs, it is also an ideal place to rest in silence. For those who like more luxury and some music, I recommend going to Cala Jondal, there is the most beautiful beach club in Ibiza – Blue Marlin. You can rent a bed or sun loungers on the beach during the day, sunbathe and then stay at a party that lasts until midnight (admission free). Between Cala Jondal and the airport (in the south of the island) there is the Sa Caleta beach. Steep cliffs protect the bay from the wind and high waves, so it is also a perfect spot for families with children. What is more, the view from the cliff to the beach is breathtaking.
Beaches near to Ibiza town
If you live in the small town of Ibiza and do not want to go far to the beaches, you can choose either Figuretas or Talamanca beach – these are city beaches near hotels, so they are not very beautiful, the water is not completely transparent. However, shops and restaurants are on site, and the sun shines the same everywhere. I spent the most time on Figuretas because I lived there.
