More than just the party, exploring the island is a perfect cure to even the biggest fear-induced hangover thanks to an endless selection of beautiful locations to discover and get lost in.
Checking out at least one of Ibiza’s beaches is a must during your stay this summer, perfect for an afternoon to chill, relax, top up your tan and clear your head with the help of the Mediterranean sea (and maybe an ice cold San Miguel).
Located just a short water taxi away from the San Antonio marina, Cala Bassa beach is the perfect kind of escape from the bustle and fast pace in San An without having to go too far away. Picture the whitest sand, a relaxed atmosphere and nothing but good vibes with like-minded people. You can hire a sun lounger or upgrade to a more luxury bed thanks to the Cala Bassa Beach Club. Fancy treating yourself? Spent an entire afternoon at the Beach Club – superb service, the perfect chilled playlist and arguably one of the nicest white wine sangrias on the island! Well worth the euros.
Get the 8€ return water taxi, pack up your towel and grab some snacks from our supermarket and enjoy some seriously strong daytime vibes with your Ibiza squad.
Located on the outskirts of San Antonio, Cala Gracio is a 10-minute walk from the Ibiza Rocks Hotel. With it’s chilled out beach vibes make it popular with the Ibiza workers community due to location, cliff jumping opportunities and clear waters. Grab some essentials from our supermarket and even a lilo to spend the day lazing in the sea soaking up the sunshine.
Get down as early as you can – it can get very busy here especially in peak season (July & August)! If you arrive and it’s a little too busy for your liking… Head to Cala Gracioneta which is next on our list!
Cala Gracioneta is the little sister of Cala Gracio, located literally next door! With beautiful calm, shallow waters, it’s perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Even though it’s small, it’s packed with beauty and character. Again, it does get busy so make sure you head down before lunch time!
Head down for sunset – the beautiful, picturesque setting makes it a breath-taking place to watch the world-famous Ibiza sunset!
Expect an endless stream of no filter needed sea and golden sand, Cala Conta is views for days and one beach you will want to stick around at for the sunset. So breathtaking that you will probably want to go here again once you first experience it. Explore the waters and take in the friendly, chilled out atmosphere that feels like the traditional hippy island culture.
Located around the west coast of the island, you can make your way to the beach via bus or water taxi from San Antonio. Grab a sunbed and treat yourself to a truly stunning display of Ibiza’s beauty.
Popular with islanders and those in the know, Cala Conta is one you won’t regret making the effort to discover.
Get booked into one of the restaurants and enjoy true tastes of Ibiza with the backdrop of the incredible sunset.
With crystal clear turquoise waters and its beachy golden sands, Cala Salada is reachable via water taxi or hire car. A dreamy sandy cove, this is one of the smaller beaches but one of the most stunning. Set off early in the day for this one, as it is extremely popular. Don’t just take in the beautiful views though, get amongst it and hire a pedalo and bring a snorkel!
Make a day of it and try the delicious paella at the restaurant located on the beach!
And finally, for those really wanting to experience a seriously dreamy beach escape then Formentera is the one for you. Most likely for the non-Ibiza virgin, Formentera is a full day out and an island itself. The beaches are quite simply stunning, expect to see every hair on your body underneath the sea as the water is genuinely that clear.
It feels like a little slice of paradise, accessible via ferry from Ibiza Town. You can also hire a car and go by ferry to explore the island in full but not essential.
There are a number of picturesque restaurants and cafes located by the beach to treat yourself but we do recommend bringing your own picnic or sourcing a cool box so that you can make your euros last longer! Tranquil and naturally beautiful with all the charm you’d expect from the smallest of the Balearic islands.
