It is about 45 mins drive from Ibiza town or San Antonio, but as a day out with the kids IT was beautiful and quiet. The beach is flat, golden and clean, with lovely shallow turquoise water which is... More

During our two week stay in Ibiza we visited S'Aranel Petit about three or four times. It is a lovely beach. It is smaller but a lot quieter and much more attractive than its bigger neighbour S'Aranel Gros. It has beautiful clear turquoise water which stays at waist-depth for at least fifty metres out at sea, and the sand is... More

Cracking little beach with soft sand and shallow, crystal clear waters. Great for snorkelling, paddling, kayaking and for kids of all ages. Cafe's, bars and shops all in close proximity and water sports options on the beach, as well as lounger/brolly hire...5eu).

It's small but perfectly formed. Has a choice of sunbeds/brolly (5eu each) or just use your towel. Water is clean, warm, shallow, lots of fish to see, even when paddling - good for the kids and swimming a little further out excellent snorkling! Great bar over-looking too (Zulu Lounge)

Lovely little beach which is the smaller of the 2 beaches. Close to nice bars. Clear blue seas are quite shallow and can get quite warm.
