Best Beaches Around Ibiza

When I think of amazing beaches and landscapes, Ibiza always pop up in my mind. The "White Island" is my favorite destination for a never ending list of reasons: peaceful scenarios, beaches with relaxing chill-out music, the world's best beach clubs, cocktails in Balinese beds, beautiful sunsets, unbelievably stunning turquoise water, and white sand beaches. This island is a little Spanish paradise, with beaches to suit all kinds of tourists; families, couples, friends, LGTB, and solo alike.

Ana_Maria_Ramos_R's City Tips

  • The Ibiza marine life is amazing. Bring your goggles and do some snorkeling; or if you are brave, you can go diving. Dive to the Don Pedro Boat, known as one of Europe's finest shipwrecks for divers.
  • I suggest visiting at least one beach on each of the island's four points, to enjoy the different landscapes, vegetation, and surroundings.
  • You should hire a car to maximize your time, and be able to get to all the little bays independently. Public transport doesn't go everywhere.
  • Ibiza gets really busy. Avoid it in August. The best time to visit the beaches are April, May, June, September, and October.

    A beautiful long beach with turquoise water, Cala de Saint Vicente is located in a privileged spot from which you can see Tagomago Island. Full of great facilities, making it perfect for families and seniors, this beach is a very calm and relaxed spot. I like to come here, stay the whole day, and finish with a meal at the Can Gat restaurant.

    This is the longest and most visited beach on Ibiza, as it offers a huge variety of places to experience, all along the same sandy stretch. Depending on what part you choose to visit, you can find everything from quiet, secluded spots to busier bases where club nights are showcased; and from local hangouts to beach club parties (like Nassau and Bora Bora.) Plus, with facilities ranging from Balinese beds to watersport rentals, the list really is endless! A must-see beach where you can have a wide range of experiences depending on your mood.

    This is the main gay beach in Ibiza, and the left side is a dedicated nudist spot. There is usually seagrass along the whole seashore, but you can find some gaps where it has been taken away. I think this characteristic makes the beach feel more natural and beautiful than some of the others on the island, and with the stunning sea, beach clubs with great music, and of course, its location in a Natural Park, it has all the ingredients for a truly memorable destination.

    Everyone who comes to Ibiza wants to go to Ses Salines Beach. Why? Because this beach has been named one of the most beautiful in the world by various worldwide media outlets. Part of the Ses Salines Natural Park, I really love to swim in the turquoise water here, lie on the fine sand, and enjoy the great atmosphere of continual people parades.

The beach is divided in two: the left side of the beach is chic and full of famous people, while the right side is calm and relaxed.

    This is my favorite beach on the whole island — it's simply paradise. This beach is huge, and from left to right is divided into the following sections: nudist beach, friends/couple beach, restaurant, family beach, restaurant. The little island offshore 'Illa des Bosc' makes the environment even more breathtaking, and the perfect spot to see the famous Ibiza sunsets over the amazingly blue water. Plus, you can enjoy a great paella in the second from left restaurant, Ses Roques (or S'illa des Bosc), or a drink in the hippie-chic Sunset Ashram restaurant while you're here.

    This is one of the most famous Sant Antonio beaches, really close to the town, and is perfect for families and couples. While it's easy to access from San Antonio, it appears as if it's in the middle of nowhere, and is really quiet and calm. The best part of this beach however is the color of the water: so turquoise! Sometimes it looks like a pool in the middle of the green pine covered mountains...

    Benirras is the most hippy beach on the island, and every Sunday you can enjoy the free and spontaneous music of the drummers sitting in a group on the beach, who play until the sun goes down. Every Sunday is different and special on Benirras Beach and the sunset must be seen. If you're looking for relaxation during the day, come here during the week in the morning for a swim - the little mount in the middle of the water is a beautiful thing to admire as you explore the sea.

    This beach is called 'white waters' due to the foam created when the wind hits the water, making it appear white. This is an official nudist beach and a really alternative place to go and live the real Ibiza. I really love this beach, full of hippies and locals, with a beautiful backdrop of high cliffs, where you can feel free and relaxed just as you are.
