Hidden gem of a beach

Quiet, peaceful, with glorious turquoise and blue water and sandy beach. Great place to go with kids if you want to get away from the crowds. A hidden gem.

The view is just beautiful. But keep your hands away from the restaurant... This is just a touriste trap... The spanish omelette was made with fries and the fish was not fresh...

The beach is easy to Access & the restaurant is good. Not much to see if you enjoy snorkelling though...

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
