VAMOS A LA PLAYA BEACHES!
Get yourself down to the beach! Ibiza island can only be described as being “blessed” with so many different beaches to suit your different moods! Ibiza has over 30 miles of spectacular coastline and mor than 80 beautiful beaches! Choose from quiet coves in the North and East to super showoff poser paradises in the South and lively fun beaches in the rugged West! You will be lucky if you can get to them all this holiday, but here are some we can highly recommend to you to try.
Broad and sandy with gentle shelves into the sea, it has a great diving and watersports centre and is good for children. Next to the upmarket Nikki Beach and Cala Pada is popular with the Germans.
One of our favourites. A melting pot for all nationalities and has a vast expanse of sand, next to the woods. Very relaxing and laid – back, safe and fun for children of all ages. Scenic setting and clean waters.
South side of the island, it is ideal for families one end, and is the hanging out “place to see and be seen” at the other, with the hip beach bars like Blue Marlin, Tropicana, and Yemanjah , often with LIVE music. It has great sand and very expensive sunbeds, but the action on the beach goes way past the sunset hours. It is the favourite haunt of the jetset yachts and superboats to drop anchor too. Superclear waters!
North of the village of the same name, it is the epitome of a family resort in the North of the island, with lots of watersports, boat hire and at the back of the beach a large sports area for games and football goals.
This is where the A list hang out! People watching here is like being on a set for a catwalk, only the strong hard and tanned bodies survive! Famous restaurants like the Jockey Club compete with the best music beach bars for their airspace sounds, and the beach itself is sandy and waters as beautiful as the people ! Surprise! Not much lacking here!
Other side of the headland to Salinas beach, this is one of the most established gay beaches in Europe. The sand is exceptionally fine and soft and the beauty of the place is exceptional. Locals and visitors alike love it.
You’ve heard about it, you’ve read about it, this is the place where the drums beat on a Sunday afternoon working up to a frenzy in the evening as you watch the sunset, along with fire-jugglers! Popular with all nationalities, and all ages, drawn to the paradisical colours of the water. Rocky shoreline but well worth a visit. Grab a traditional bocadillo sandwich at the shack on the far left, or a great paella meal at the other restaurants on the beach too – favourite haunt of the famous!
West Coast lovely wild beach complete with rock pools and turquoise waters. Amazing sunset place and fabulous panoramic views too.
Family beach also popular with young clubbing daytrippers, looking for a quiet snooze spot!. Has a backdrop of pinewoods, offering some shade and watersports available, the new CBBC beach club is worth checking out too!
Strenuous walk down, but worth it! Rocky, rugged and a little wild, this draws hippies, ( usually discreet )nudists at the far end, and if you need something to look away to, check out the rock carvings.
Steep to get to, but this gets its fame for being directly in front of the mysterious rock of the legendary Es Vedra, said to be a point in the Spanish Bermuda triangle, and distance shots of the South Pacific in several films.
Stunning photostop for many passing by on the hill road above from Portinatx, , this small picturesque bay is quiet and secluded, with nature at its best. A photographers dream, with its rugged wild scenery and crystalline waters, take your snorkels!
We couldn’t NOT mention Ibiza’s sister island, could we? Rated as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, put this on your WISH LIST of things to do! Catch one of the many ferry boats over from Ibiza town, or other resorts and plan for at least a day trip there. The ferry trip is only ½ hr ride away from most places, and the island is pretty flat and under developed, but the beaches, ahhhh the beaches….. Try Illetas, and Mitjorn, or for something more developed Es Pujols resort. Gazing at the colours of the waters which are so breathtaking , you wont believe you are in Europe! 110% worth the trip! Hire a car, walk to the beach of Illetas from the port, or take the local bus tour. Or enjoy the main transport of the island / a bike, to get around!
