Arrived at approx 2.30 on a Saturday afternoon, luckily found car park space immediately on side street but no other spaces(phew)!! We arrived from the left hand side of beach down some steps nearer to were some boats are in the water. Able to get a nice spot and noticed some loungers were also available. We were hungry so went to the Chiringuito de Cala Tarida. We had no reservation and it was really busy but had to wait no more than few mins and then we were shown to our beachside table and comfy sofa style chair overlooking beach, prime spot, lucky again and walked in to the bee gees playing!! . Had to wait a while to be served, turns out we should have had a QR code to scan on our table but it was missing. Again it was so busy snd found some people at the restaurant (they came from the boats) were quite demanding of waiters time , clicking fingers at them etc . Food was delicious but we ordered way too much. Salads were very well presented and plentiful more than enough as a main course but we had it as a side!! There was a little shop next door that had some nice bags and bracelets. The sea was mainly clear we walked along the front to other side of beach, the water was a little murkier in between but soon changed back to clear. It felt more busy the other side of beach so we walked back to our spot. It was a Saturday height of summer so busy and quite loud but glad we went for a few hours to check it out and still lots of space to be found at back of beach.

Gorgeous family beach and sea that great for swimming. Lots of fish to see in the shallows too. There’s a few restaurants/beach bars for food and drinks plus free car parking at the top. There aren’t masses of sun beds so in the busy holiday period get there before lunch. They cost €10 per item plus €5 pp service charge. We’ll worth a visit for a chilled out day.. Ps There are A LOT of steps down to the beach…and to climb back up!!

Really liked the beach, amazing views from above, go on the rocky path to the right side to take some great pictures before going down the stairs to the beach. I enjoyed the beach very much, it had many waves so it was fun (usually the calas are small and have no waves and this is boring for me). So would be ideal to have a swimming ring to ride the waves. Regular bus connection to St Antonio.

Horrible beach, went there around 6pm to enjoy a view of the sunset and left running away after 10 mins. Water was very dirty and the people there seemed sketchy... The beach itself is large and parking is easy, but there are dozens of better options around. Avoid!

Undoubtedly this is a beautiful spot but it was so ridiculously busy it was not at all enjoyable. The restaurant has good reviews but we found it dirty, busy and with average food. It’s all about being seen here!! Wish we hadn’t wasted a morning here when we could have gone to do many other beautiful, quiet place in Ibiza.

I can't understand all the good reviews about this place. It surely has a pretty view but the water was incredible dirty. I didn't feel comfortable at all to swim and was there only a couple of hours and then I went home cause I wanted to get out of there as fast as possible.
Expansive restaurants around and filthy water is not a great combo in my opinion.

Before our kids wanted to do the „banana“ they asked properly how much it costs and how long it will take! They were answered by a young girl working there that it would take 7-13 minutes and cost 15 EUR per Person. They then chose the platform and went out, my wife measured the time, exactly 5 min.
First, my wife went there to ask how much it usually takes, the girl said 6 min. When my wife confronted her with the measured time, the girl corrected what she said before „around 5 min“. I talked to our children ( 3 aged 11, 13 and 14) they confirmed again 7-13 min.
So I went to talk to the girl telling her that she could either give the kids their extra time or recoup us the money accordingly. She started struggling that she said „around“ and that the platform was more intense. When I would not accept her answer and said that this is rip-off, she started ignoring me and telling me to get away. She did not even react when I threatened to call the police.

We live on the Island and even speak sufficient spanish, so you cannot even say it is only tourists that are ripped off. Recommendation: stay away!!!

Great beach, very clean, some really nice bars around the bay. Although pricey the Cotton Club and Xaxa are the pick of these.

Here's the thing, the beach is made of lovely soft sand and the sea is a wonderful turquoise colour and shallow to a long way out. It is basically 3 beaches in one. crescents. It is backed by hills which is a lovely backdrop. Now the downsides..it is so nice that it is extremely busy, i mean busy. The sellers on the beach constantly asking do you want to buy a towel sunglasses etc. Tell them no and they forget and ask again, in the end I pretended to be asleep when they were coming. Someone should tell them to sell parasols that I would have purchased. Sunbeds are expensive to hire also. We tended to visit in the morning before the tourist buses arrived. I would recommend however and in lower season it's probably heaven.
