Ibiza is known for its night life, however it also has some of the best beaches in Europe. With over 40 beaches and coves, the 5 best ones have been selected for you that you have to visit while in Ibiza.
Originally Agua Blanca was known to be a nudist beach, however through the years it has become one of the most beautiful beaches in Ibiza. It is located on the east of the island and has two very nice restaurants where you can go eat with your friends and family. The name translated means white waters and the sea is beautiful and crystal clear. If you are in to play beach paddle this is a great beach to do so.
Located in the the south of the west of the island. Cala Comte is a fabulous beach that has two side two it. In the middle of both sides there is a very nice beach restaurant called Sunset ashram which has very nice food, drinks and music around sunset time. The sunsets in Cala Comte are one of the best because the sun sets right infant of you into the sea. The water is turquoise and very nice you only have to watch out for the occasional jellyfish.
Also located in the south west area of Ibiza, Cala Salada is one of the more popular beaches there is. It is surrounded by a forrest however it is easily accessible. During the summer months (June-October) From 10:00-18:00 the road is closed as there are too many people going there. So either you need to park and then take the bus down, or you can take a water taxi from Sant Antoni. It is definitely worth the trouble because Cala Salada has crystal clear water, it is sandy and shallow so it is easy to go there with children as well. The name means salty cove because it is one of the beaches with the highest volume of salt in the water.
Cala d´hort is located in the south of the island. Unless you live in this area, this is one of the furthest beaches you can drive to. however it is worth is because of the tranquil setting that it is located in. It is also in front of the the famous, mysterious island that is Es Vedra, which gives it an extra special vibe. The beach itself is half sandy and half with pebbles, so if you want to sit in the sandy side then it is better to arrive early as in the summer it can get very busy.
Benirras used to be known as a “hippy” beach, however now it is one of the most popular beaches. the beach has rocks on either side which is also nice to sit on and then go in the snorkelling from there. out at sea in the middle of the water is the rock formation know as “ the finder of god”. Sunday is the day to go because the ibiza drummers come down to the beach to perform the “drum down the sunset” which is an iconic ritual of Benirras every Sunday. Unfortunately due to the drumming it is packed with people and parking is very hard. therefore you would need to park your car and take the bus down to the beach.
