Cala Vadella – A Beach For The Whole Family
With only 300 meters of length, this fine sand beach with small rocky areas offers a space surrounded by nature but at the same time with all the services and amenities you can expect from a resort beach: restaurants, boutiques, a small supermarket and all kinds of watersports, making your day in Cala Vadella a perfect beach day.

Also, here you’ll find a diving center that will help you discover the underwater wonders of this beach. Also, on the right side of the beach you’ll see the charming and typical fishermen’s huts.
Cala d’Hort – The Jewel Of The Island
Surely there are few people who have not heard of Es Vedrà, and is that there are so many legends and stories about this pinion that its fame has been growing with the passage of the years. In addition, those who have already seen it will surely always remember the impression to see this great giant standing in front of the beach of Cala d’Hort. Apart from the wonderful landscape crowned by the magnetism of Es Vedrà, this beautiful beach declared as a natural park, gives you the chance to taste the specialties of typical Ibizan cuisine. If you let us recommend a dish, go for ‘Bullit de Peix’ or a delicious paella in any of the restaurants that flank the beach. Also, it is an ideal beach to watch the sunset, as the silhouette of Es Vedrà on the horizon is a spectacular complement to farewell of the king star.
Es Bol Nou – Sa Caleta
In the south of Ibiza we find the beach of Sa Caleta followed by Es Bol Nou, although they are usually both known by Sa Caleta. These beaches are known for having clean and crystal clear waters, which is why they are among the most visited by the Ibicenco people. They are at the bottom of a rocky, argillaceous and reddish colour cliff. It is not strange to see people collecting this clay to mix with water and smear it on their bodies. It is a great exfoliant and toning for the skin, if you have the opportunity to try it, go for it. Another great attraction of this area is that it houses one of the biggest discoveries in the Pitiusas of the last 25 years: the Phoenician settlement of Sa Caleta, declared World Heritage Site, being a must see. A good idea is to go for a walk and visit this ancient settlement before enjoying a fresh fish in the restaurant of the beach.
Cala Jondal – It Never Goes Out Of Style
This beautiful beach is one of the few in Ibiza which is entirely pebbled, giving it a different beauty which we love. To make access to the water easier, this beach has a series of walkways that facilitate the entry to the sea for people. Its crystal-clear and turquoise blue waters are one of the greatest attractions of this beach. But don’t forget that on this beach we can find the best beach clubs on the island, perfect for enjoying a cocktail lying on their Balinese beds and hammocks as well as to taste a delicious fresh fish from the shores of the island. Any of these ‘chiringuitos’ are an ideal place to watch the sunset in the coolest and most relaxed way you can imagine. Also this beach is great for diving and snorkeling! Thanks to its crystalline waters and its fascinating seabed, it can be a very interesting activity.
