Ibiza Beaches Off the Beaten Track

May 1, 2006  Two weeks in Ibiza every year for ... many years
3.0 of 5 stars based on 4 votes

Favourite beaches that you'll need your own transport to get to - not that they won't be busy though!

  • 1. Cala D'en Serra

    In the north east corner of the island, you'll need to go down a scary, bumpy road to reach this little beach - but it's worth it! Not much in the way of amenities, there's just a little beach bar, but it's an idyllic spot.

  • 2. Cala Boix

    This one's on the east coast of Ibiza and has strange black sand. You park at the top of a hill (there are a couple of restaurants there for the hungry!) and go down a pretty steep flight of stairs, with a beach bar at the bottom. The sea is sandy and safe, and if you're lucky and the wind is in the right directions, there'll be great waves!

  • 3. Cala Xaraca

    On the way to Portinatx, take a little road off to the left to find this popular beach - but get there early as parking is at a premium! Not a lot of beach, but very picturesque and lovely clear water.

  • 4. S'Illot de Rencil

    Just a bit further along than Cala Xarraca, take a steep road down on the left - looks a bit scary but there is some parking further down, next to a restaurant with fabulous views across the sea. Then gather your stuff together and walk down the steep slope to a tiny little arc of shingly beach. This beach is one of my all time favourites - tiny, but the water is crystal clear, and there are lots of rocks and interesting places to swim.

  • 5. S'Aigo Blanca

    Spelling of this beach varies but the meaning is the same - white water, because it's on the east coast and gets lots of waves. Again, the beach is at the bottom of a steep road - if you think you won't get parking, you can park in a farmers field at the top for a few euros. Then trek down - it will be worth it! There's a very nice beach bar/restaurant at the bottom, and the beach stretches a long way north and south. Lovely sand, and usually some shade from the cliffs later in the day. Oh, and watch out for naked bodies - part of the beach is for nudists!

  • 6. Sol D'En Serra

    Not to be confused with Cala D'En Serra, this beach can be reached via Cala Llonga - take the road through the resort right to the end and then turn right. It's a very tiny beach, no sand, just big stones and lots of seaweed, and the sea tends to be pretty rough. So what's the attraction? the little restaurant on the cliff, which plays lovely music and has a few sunbed/loungers with a stunning view. Not particularly suited to children, but if you want a place to chill out on a sunny day, this is a good one.

  • 7. Cala Jondal

    Down at the south end of the island, this now has a pretty good road to it. The beach is a long arc with a few restaurants/beach bars along the length. We tend to go to the bit at the far end. There's a large, flat car park, a beach bar & white sand/large pebbles. This is a beach where the "smart" people go - which means that on a busy day, there can be a lot of yachts & boats. There are also usually a massage stand, a stall selling sarongs, and the usual pedalos/banana boats etc. Oh, and the sea can be a little tricky to get into, due to large pebbles. Good for people watching though.
