Hedonistic, serene, funky, naturist, family, sporty, yacht friendly, and so many more beach styles: Ibiza, the wild and sexy princess of the Balearic islands, boasts a wealth of amazing beaches among its lacy, platinum sandy shores.
Here is a list with the top of them, according to Conde Nast Traveller, one of the world’s most prestigious travel magazines:
- Cala d'Hort
Best for the iconic Ibiza backdrop
Platinum sands kissing transparent turquoise waters, against Ibiza’s most dramatic backdrop: Es Vedrà, a huge rock formation rising dramatically from the sea, surrounded by that impossible blue infinity.
- Cala Gracioneta
Best little all-rounder
A quiet, small stretch of white sands embracing an iconic cove, popular with the locals. Ideally located within walking distance from San Antonio’s Sunset strip.
- Aguas Blancas
Best for intimate sunrises
- Las Salinas
Best for hedonism
Οne of the most popular beaches in Ibiza, with all day crowded beach bars and a vibrant, hedonistic ambience.
- Cala Llonga
Best for families
Calm, shallow waters embraced by bright soft sands, make it an ideal family-friendly beach. Brimming with water games and activities to keep young children busy, offers the perfect spot for parents to unwind and sip the picture-perfect views.
- Raco de ses Dones
Best for solitude
At the far end of the crowded “Es Figueral” beach, lies a peaceful, sandy hidden cove, that still remains a secret to the big crowds of summer. To reach, you will need to climb a rope ladder, unless you sail to it!
- Punta Galera
Best for Sunset
As indicated by its name – Punta Galera means “flat rocks”- you will not find a soft, sandy spot to enjoy the sunset but perfect rocky platforms to enjoy refreshing cliff jumping at the daytime, and spiritual sunset views and sun salutations at dusk. Yoga lovers, mats are not provided, better carry your own on the yacht!
