We stayed nearby and searched the internet and this beach came up a recommended for snorkelling. Spent an afternoon lazing on the beach and swimming / snorkelling. Scenic and sheltered spot. Late afternoon the sun goes behind cliffs at one end. Snorkelling wasn't anything to write home about, we had a better experience at Cala St Vicente. No regrets going... More

We had the best fish in the beach restaurant, freshly prepared and from fresh catch but the price 60€ massively overpriced. Great views great to relax for a bit but not the best one to dive in.

A bit overrated, but nevertheless somewhere to visit, even if it's for it's supposed filmmatic history! Lovely photos/views from the road above!

We were just driving towards Portinatx and decided to stop when saw the beautiful landscape. It very quiet and we had a great time in this beach. Try to find pearls like that when going to Ibiza. Better than the popular beaches.

A regular spot to spend the afternoon. Not amazing, not bad. Just average. There's a service to rent beach umbrellas for 6€. That's expensive. You can buy one for not so much more.

Nice place for off-shore snorkeling or scuba diving (if you got your own gear) Recommend you to wear water sandals or shoes since their is allot of coral or pebble

This small beach was a disappointment - the guide book descibes it as a "beautiful beach" but we visited about ten different ones in all parts of the island and this was the poorest.The sea was not clear, there were lots of small jellyish and the actual beach was shingle. The only upside was that there was plenty of parking... More

This beach had little atmosphere, the restaurant/cafe was overpriced as were the beach loungers and umbrellas. The spanish omelette was an omelette with chips in it. New take on spanish omelette which tasted ok but we were very disappointed. The snorkelling was ok but overall there are much better beaches to visit.

Beautiful beach such a shame nobody could go in the sea due to plague of jellyfish. Wanted to go for a snorkel and a swim and had we have been able to swim or even paddle this would have got four or even five stars. But you can't give it any more than two stars if you can't go in... More
