There is so much to do in Ibiza. Day plans, night clubs, water sports, afternoon shopping, mouth-watering food...
But obviously, the island’s greatest appeal is its eye-catching beaches with peaceful, crystal-clear waters bathing the many, many coves... So we wanted to share with you the very best! Today we’ll tell you about our favourite beaches, the five top beaches in Ibiza.
Shall we get going?
Punta Galera is a quiet beach where people appreciate silence as if they were in a library. It have some areas with fine sand, but it’s mostly rocky. Located on the south-western coast of Ibiza, near Cala Salada, where you can also find a few spots for nudists. If you fancy a swim before watching the sunset, this is the perfect place.
Cala Gracioneta is on the outskirts of San Antonio, right next to Cala Gració. Hidden between two rocks sits one of the hidden gems of Mambo Group: Chiringuito Cala Gracioneta. This beach bar has a rustic, relaxed vibe to enjoy the sea, Mediterranean food and the island’s local products. An iconic place on the island to enjoy life’s pleasures by the sea.
Playa d’en Bossa is one of the largest beaches in Ibiza, stretching all the way from Ibiza to San José. If you like a buzzing atmosphere day and night, this is your type of beach. Only a few minutes’ drive from the airport, you’ll find some of the most popular night clubs and beach clubs on the island. It’s usually pretty busy, but there are some areas that are quieter and more family-oriented.
Cala Conta is one of our top favourites for sure!
On the outskirts of the town of Sant Josep, its crystal-clear waters are a beautiful turquoise shade all year round. It’s in a stunning setting with a view of several environmentally protected islets: Es Compte de Tramontana, Es Compte de Ponent and Es Racó d’en Xic. Cala Conta is one of the most crowded beaches in the summer, but it’s true that it has a very special vibe: you’ll find beach bars, a small nudist cove by a quaint beach bar and the two adjacent coves of Cala Conta. Don’t forget to take your snorkelling goggles!

Ses Salines is a beach sheltered by sand dunes and is 9km from the city of Ibiza and only a few kilometres from Sant Jordi.
It’s perfect for families, as there’s barely any waves. But it’s also home to some of the most popular beach bars on the island, such as Malibú, Guaraná, Jockey Club and El Beso. If you want to enjoy a full beach day, Ses Salines is the place to go!
Ibiza’s beaches are indeed the island’s greatest appeal but don’t forget that its delicious food also hooks the most demanding palates. Because the food in the Med, and Ibiza, is absolutely marvellous. Come for a stroll through the city of Ibiza and end a perfect day at La Cava, having drinks and the best Basque-inspired tapas on the island. Care to join us?
