The beach at Las Salinas is a vast stretch of sand more than four kilometres in length. It enjoys legal protection, having been designated a Natural Area of Special Interest. It contains both lively zones, with fashionable beach clubs and bars, and other parts for enjoying the peace and quiet. White sand and totally transparent waters make Salinas a favourite beach for bathers and, of course, for those sailing round Ibiza by boat.

  1. Cala Jondal

Located to the south of the island, Cala Jondal is a wide bay that features smooth pebbles rather than sand on the greater part of its shoreline. Cala Jondal offers one of the island’s most beautiful natural landscapes. The beach is one of the most popular on the island, owing to the fame of one of the beach clubs located here: Blue Marlin, where, as well as having lunch, dinner or a cocktail in the most cosmopolitan of atmospheres, you can enjoy one of the island’s most famous parties. This accounts for the many boats that drop anchor near this part of the coast: to revel in its lively parties.

  1. Cala Bassa


Cala Bassa is, without doubt, one of the island’s most spectacular beaches. It is surrounded by thickly-wooded pine forests, ideal for those who want to avoid direct exposure to the sun and prefer to take shelter in cool shade. This incredible natural landscape comes with a comprehensive range of services and restaurants, designed to provide its bathers with all they need. Dropping anchor at Cala Bassa will enable you to immerse yourself in striking natural pools and enjoy one of the most spectacular sunsets on Ibiza.

  1. Cala Conta

Made up of fine, pearly grains of sand and waters of an intense turquoise colour, Cala Conta offers an idyllic landscape, ensuring its status as a preferred beach for residents and tourists alike. Its waters harbour transparent natural pools with sandy floors, ideal for enjoying a sumptuous swim or for water sports, such as jet skiing and paddle surfing.

  1. Benirrás

If you want to have a really unique experience on Ibiza, be sure to reserve a Sunday afternoon for sailing to Benirrás and drop anchor between the beach and the isle of Es Cap Bernat. When the sun sets, hundreds of people get together on the sand to play their percussion instruments. The drummers are invariably joined by spontaneous dancers, who move to the rhythm of the music to bid farewell to the fiery sun-king: a unique goose-bump-inducing moment that will live in your memory forever.
