The best beaches in ibiza

Ibiza-playas
For many, Ibiza is paradise. It is the perfect island to disconnect, although not everyone feels the same way. There are those who prefer to enjoy the nightlife, the atmosphere that is organised around bars and discotheques until the early hours of the morning. Be that as it may, we all like to enjoy the day on its beautiful beaches, which by the way are not few.

In this article I propose five that I personally love. Ibiza may not have sandy beaches as spectacular as Menorca, but I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised by more than one.

Comte Cove

Cala-Comte-IbizaAlso known as Cala Conta, this beach located in the west of the island is a must for its incredible turquoise blue waters. For this reason and for the privileged views of one of the islets that lie just a few metres off the coast. There are sun loungers and parasols, showers, lifeguard, disabled access, toilets, beach bars and restaurants.

If there is one thing to blame it for, it is what is usually blamed on any popular beach in the Balearic Islands: overcrowding. In the summer months it is very difficult to lay your towel on the sand unless you get up very early. Its 800 metres long and 25 metres wide are too small in July and August.

Xarraca Cove

Cala-XarracaThis cove is located to the north of Ibiza and is characterised by being quite quiet. It is visited by many diving enthusiasts who want to enjoy its crystal-clear waters, but also by those who practise nudism. There is a small corner where it is common to see people sunbathing as God brought them into the world.

In Cala Xarraca there is also a small islet that can be reached by swimming without much effort. If you like snorkelling, take the opportunity to put on your goggles and snorkel because you are going to have fun. Its waters are calm and it is common to see several species of fish lurking just a few metres from the shore.

Bassa Cove

Cala-BassaIt is also located in the west, very close to Cala Comte, and is usually full in the summer months. It is easy to access and parking facilities are generous. Its forest of old junipers is one of the great attractions of Cala Bassa, as are its waters and soft sand like few others. It is about 300 metres long and 30 metres wide.

There are bars, restaurants, lifeguards, toilets, showers, sun loungers and parasols… It has everything you need to enjoy a peaceful day of sun and beach near San Antonio (15 minutes by car).

Tarida Cove

Cala-TaridaThis is a very popular cove with families visiting Ibiza. It is the longest and widest on the western fringe, but also because of the beautiful turquoise-blue water, which is completely clear. To the north of the beach there are small coves to escape the hustle and bustle of the summer months.

From San Jose it takes about 10 minutes to get there, while from San Antonio it’s a quarter of an hour. It’s worth it because it’s 900 square metres long and you can enjoy it in and out of the water.

Sa Caleta

Sa-CaletaThis beach is by no means one of the largest on the white island. Quite the contrary. It is a beautiful beach about 100 metres long and 10 metres wide. It is so because of the reddish-coloured stones and sand that envelop you from the very first moment. Its steep cliffs shelter visitors, who lose track of time enjoying the sun and its crystal-clear waters, as you can see in the image above.

This is fairly close to the airport. It can be reached in 10 minutes by car from Playa d’en Bossa.
