Beaches of Ibiza

Ibiza's coast is very diverse with the steep coast in the north and northwest, where there are some smaller bays, Calas, with a sandy beach. At the somewhat larger beach sections in the north, San Miguel, Portinatx and Cala San Vicente, some tourism settled quite early. But there are a lot of small and partly hidden and lonely bays in the north.

There are many medium-sized bays on the east coast from Santa Eulalia to Cala San Vicente, which are also very well visited in summer, e.g. Cala Nova with numerous restaurants, Cala Llenya without much gastronomy (there is only a small kiosk) with gently sloping water, Es Figueral as a tourist zone with some hotels up to the natural beach Aguas Blancas with only a small beach restaurant. The town of Santa Eulalia has two spacious sandy beaches, along a several-kilometer-long promenade which stretches from the north of the town to the river in the south. This invites you to stroll and there are also numerous restaurants, most of which are also open in winter. The described stretch of coast from Santa Eulalia to Aguas Blancas also invites you to hike along the coast, as it is rather flat and you can walk almost completely close to the sea. Nowhere else on the island is this possible. Therefore, this zone is becoming more and more interesting for property seekers. Who wouldn't want a poolside villa near the beach?

Basically, one may have to mention that there are plenty of restaurants in Ibiza on almost all bays and beaches, apart from some very small ones. In the past few years, the simple beach restaurants have given way to more trendy and high-priced beach clubs. But they still exist.

The area around Ibiza town to the southern tip of the island has some larger beaches. It starts with the Talamanca beach in the north and continues through Playa d'en Bossa with the trendy hotels Ushuaia and Hard Rock Hotel  to the natural beaches around the wetland Ses Salines, e.g. the Ses Salines beach with numerous expensive beach restaurants with lounge service.
This zone is somewhat special in terms of the property structure: there are various apartment complexes near the beach, villas and fincas, on the other hand, are a little further away in the hinterland.

The south coast of the island has some smaller beach bays, some with expensive restaurants, and the very well-known beach Cala d’Hort. Located just in front of the rocky island of Es Vedrà, it offers an impressive view of the steep rock, some of which claim that it is the lost Atlantis. A magical place that has been shown to have very strong magnetic radiation.

The west coast of the island up to San Antonio is initially characterized by some small and medium-sized beaches such as Cala Vadella, Cala Molí and Cala Tarida, which are all strongly influenced by tourism. The beaches of Cala Comte and Cala Bassa, south of San Antonio, are characterized by beach clubs and upscale beach restaurants, and in particular Cala Comte, a beach with turquoise-blue water, is beautiful and special, but unfortunately very crowded in summer.
Here it is often sought a holiday villa for summer, not so much real estate that is occupied all year round.

San Antonio has a longer stretch of beach, but the beach is not very nice. However, the creation of the long beach promenade in the north and the modernization of the marina contribute to the fact that the place was able to gradually shake off its image of cheap tourism. The promenade offers a great view of the sunset and there are numerous clubs such as the Café del Mar  and Café Mambo , which celebrate it. In the 80s, the Café del Mar shaped the trend to underline the sunsets with suitable music and established the trend of chill-out music. The rather calm electronic sounds of chill-out music to accompany a relaxed sunset have given way to today's electronic music and a pronounced DJ scene that heats up the party people. The center of San Antonio, despite numerous measures, is still heavily influenced by cheap tourism and not very busy in winter, in contrast to the two largest places on the island, Ibiza Town and Santa Eulalia.

North of San Antonio there are some smaller bays such as Cala Gració and Cala Gracioneta until the inaccessible cliff begins, which extends to San Miguel.
