If you want to spend your holiday in Spain on entertainment, nightlife and good music, Ibiza is the place for you. In fact, the island of transgression par excellence, contains within it some of the most beautiful beaches of Spain and enchanting landscapes, where very often the spectacle of nature merges with the bright colors of the sea. This popular tourist destination is located in the Mediterranean Sea in the Balearic archipelago, and has some wonderful beaches surrounded by a very crystal clear sea.
To be more precise, the sandy expanses of Eivissa (so called by the local inhabitants in Catalan) differ greatly according to their types and this allows the island to offer many seaside tourism solutions: on the same island we can, in fact, find small isolated corners as Cala Llonga and Cala Codolar, much frequented as the coasts of Las Salinas beach and Cala Llenya or rare natural pearls as Cala San Vicente and Cala d’Hort.
Now we try to identify what are the 10 most beautiful beaches of Ibiza, to have at least an idea of how to choose our favorite places on the basis of course to our own devices.
Las Salinas – Sant Jordi Ses Salines
The Las Salinas beach is located near the outskirts of Sant Jordi de Ses Salines, in the direction of the Canal. It is about 11 kilometers from the capital island of the same name and can be reached either by bus or by bike thanks to a dedicated lane. The sand of this long, flat expanse is very fine and has an inclination towards the sea rather sweet that allows bathers to walk several meters without having to swim right away. It is one of the most popular beaches on the island thanks to its many attractions; not to be missed, landscape, unique in the world, created by the combination of the islets of Es Freus and the island of Formentera.

Playa d’en Bossa is one of the busiest beaches of the island, thanks to the presence of the most popular nightclubs of Ibiza. It is a long beach that reaches nearly 3 kilometers long and, in places, even 30 meters wide. It is a reference point for all the “Movida” Spanish thanks to the many water activities that can be practiced within it, but also to the presence of several bars and beach bars. The Bora Bora, one of these, is perhaps one of the most popular island pubs. The sandy seabed and the almost total lack of waves make this beach a place suitable for bathing for all types of tourist.
Beach of Talamanca – Ibiza

One of the best urban beaches that we find on the island is undoubtedly the beach of Talamanca. Located just three kilometers from the city, this long of fine white sand beach is easily accessible by any means of transport and offers all types of service needed to make tourists spend an unforgettable day. It is a fairly quiet bay and, perhaps for this reason, is considered the favorite destination for families with children. We recommend, if you are in the area, to make a jump to admire the neighborhood of Can Pep Simó, situated in the north of the beach area, which, with its extravagant villas, will amaze certainly for its modernity.
Cala Codolar – Sant Josep
In the Sant Josep Town Hall we find Cala Codolar with its small natural corner. Situated in a cove protected from waves and wind, this little corner of paradise has a natural sand of medium grain with a sea bed mixed sand and rock. It’s a quiet beach and has a beautiful pine forest that stretches to the sea. Its particular wild footprint makes it very similar to the magnificent beaches of Formentera, which has not, however, nothing to envy.
Cala d’Hort – Sant Josep

Cala d’Hort is an isolated bay on the southwest coast of Ibiza (not far from the village of San José) that, for some sections, is very similar to the beaches of Mallorca. Reached via a narrow, steep path, offering spectacular breathtaking views of the tiny island of Es Vedra which seems to be, oddly enough, one of the magnetic points of the world. The coast has two different characteristics: one side is composed of soft sand, while the other is bit ‘more rocky, therefore ideal to make excellent snorkel. The citizens of the place, always very attentive to the environment, in 2002 convinced the government to establish the Cala d’Hort National Park making this beach a protected place.
Cala Comte – Sant Josep

At about 10 kilometers from Sant Josep, taking the road to Port d’es Torrent, one encounters the beautiful beach of Cala Comte. About 120 meters long, it has the tranquil waters with colors ranging from turquoise to deep blue, thanks to the alternation of sandy and rocky bottoms. From its coast you have a wonderful view on the islets of Des Bosc, Sa Conillera, s’Espertar and Ses Bledes that, especially during the hours of sunset, offer a spectacle unique in the world. Cala Comte is truly a magical place; It can be easily reached by car and its bar-restaurant prepares mojito 10 and praise.
Agua Blanca – San Carlos
Agua Blanca is one of the favorite beaches of the island residents. Surrounded by large cliffs, still it offers a pristine environment consists of a fine golden sand, with only the presence of a bar and a restaurant. Due to its nature predominantly naturalistic, this beach is often frequented by nudists. In the days just windy, the water takes on an incredibly transparent appearance that can be seen in all its beauty by performing the normal snorkeling or swimming between the two rocks that rise just 30 meters from the shore. We recommend that you carefully about when to why, after 17, the beach gets shady because of the rocky walls behind which the sun sets.
Cala Llonga – Santa Eulalia
Cala Llonga is located within the exclusive area of Roca Llisa Valverde, where there is the golf course of Ibiza. Equipped with all services, it has a stretch of fine sand and shallow waters, but its greatest peculiarity is that it is surrounded by small hidden coves. These are small isolated corners that represent a real haven for tourists looking for a little ‘privacy. Reach of Santa Eulalia, which is about four kilometers, this beautiful beach has also been awarded the Blue Flag for its sea which is always very clean.

Located about 10 km from Santa Eulalia, to get to this beautiful beach you will have to take the road from San Carlos to the north. This delightful golden sand is set in a beautiful bay in the shape of U. Its bottom it has a slight difference in height, but about 40 meters from the shore, the presence of cliffs makes the really interesting backdrop and offers the opportunity to wonderful diving. Cala Llenya, thanks to the many facilities on site, also offers the possibility of various water sports.
Cala San Vicente – Sant Joan

Only 4 kilometers from San Joan and more than 30 from Ibiza, we find Cala San Vicente. Surrounded by towering mountains covered with pine trees, it offers a very similar to a natural sea pool. It is accessible by car and is composed of fine sand with shallow waters, especially active due to the presence of many marine animals among its cliffs. This magnificent stretch of sand, as well as being typical seaside thanks to the Sanctuary of sa Cova des Cuiram in its vicinity, attracts many tourists interested to visit the historical places every year.
