Cala Conta. We love this place. It’s just wonderfully Ibiza. A slightly hippy vibe, with a DJ playing supported by the odd live musician, great cocktails and good food, albeit slightly slow chaotic service in mid summer. It won’t be winning a Michelin star but the Asian Med blend menu works perfectly well as you see the sun melt into the ocean. The best sunset spot on the island? Without a doubt in our humble opinion. A nice beach to spend the day too with Formentera-esque turquoise waters. Family friendly and very laid back. Definitely come for a cocktail at the very least.

Cala Conta. Is there a better way to spend a day than having a brunch by the sea? Located at the cozy cove on the left hand side of Cala Comte, known as Cala Escon- dida, next to turquoise waters and with front views over the island of Conillera. This sustainable beach bar is a rustic, pop up chiringuito with a half palm-lined and half solar panelled roof, definitely one of the west coast hidden gems that takes care for the environment and offers a delicious menu and a great cava sangria.
Cotton Beach Club
Cala Tarida beach was missing a beach club and the Cotton Club has filled that gap. The restaurant is somewhat elevated from the beach with about 50 steps up that need to be climbed but it means the views are fantastic. It’s a stylish venue offering a very good Mediterranean menu, and when you add in the striking setting it is a real treat for summer dining. Highly recommended.

Cala Vadella. Bon Sol is a fun beachside family restaurant which ticks a lot of boxes especially for the kids. Mediterranean Italian food with a focus on pizzas in the very pleasant surroundings off Cala Vadella right in the middle of the beach.

El Chiringuito Cala Gracioneta
Cala Gracioneta. The only restaurant in this pretty little sandy bay. It’s a wonderful spot for a long lunch or an early dinner. The food is solidly good, the location amazing and there is a fun atmosphere. We thoroughly recommend the overall experience. Take note though; this tiny beach has a tiny parking area which fills up fast and can be hard to get in and out of. In peak season go very early or park further away and walk.

S’illa d’es Bosc
Cala Conta. Located just off the famous, paradise beach, with stunning views over the turquoise waters to the island with which it shares the name. There is a large terrace under dappled shade where you can enjoy some very good seafood. The best food on the beach.

Cala Conta. A good optiion if you can’t get into the neighbouring S’illa Des Bosc. Serving up good local seafood dishes and enjoying lovely views over one side of Cala Conta and its pristine waters. Immediately from the restaurant there are steps leading down to a lovely little bay to swim, although the glass bottom ferry boats do stop here so it can go from calm to chaos in a second. The restaurant often hosts private events so is sometimes not open.

Cala Moli. A beach restaurant that develops a new concept by three-Michelin starred Chef Mauro Colagreco. Hailing from Argentina, Colagreco has designed a menu based around his passion for flame cooking and love of convivial dining experiences. El Silencio’s restaurant features a menu inspired by the Mediterranean way of life. A beautiful location, but it gets very mixed reviews.

Cala d’Hort. In terms of quality of the arroces y paellas this is perhaps the best of the three Cala d’Hort restaurants. It also has stunning views over the sea to Es Vedra, but it doesn´t have easy access to the beach and is in fact a 5 to 10 minute drive inland to link with the main beach. It’s a lovely spot but if a beach restaurant is what you are after then this is not for you.

Cala Vadella. A large restaurant that goes straight onto the soft sand of the pretty beach at Cala Vadella. It ́s a family friendly spot, particularly as the kids can play on the sand and swim in the safe protected waters of the bay all in eye sight of your table. Solidly good paella and seafood and overall a great lunch spot. One of our favourites.

Port des Torrent has been over-shadowed by San Antonio’s famous sunset strip for the last few years, But if you like to enjoy your sunsets with a relaxed family vibe and a sparkling of chilled music & dining, then Alma Beach could be your new Sunset Spot. Add its Oyster and Champagne menu to the beautiful views out to Illots de Ponent and your sunset experience could not get any better. As the more energetic amongst us enjoy a Sunset SUP class on Sunrise Yoga session, feel free to order the sundowner of your choice whilst procrastinating about maybe joining them tomorrow.

Cala Bassa Beach Club
Cala Bassa is a beautiful west coast bay with perfect swimming water and lovely sand. The beach club is a very good place to head with young kids. perhaps it is best to avoid the bay in mid July and August when the glass bottom boats come in packed from San Antonio but otherwise it’s a lovely spot to enjoy a day. There are three different restaurants, from the high end (middle) to a very simple snack bar (far end). We recommend the first one as you arrive from the beach entrance.

Cala Carbo. The two restaurants in the pretty little bay of Cala Carbo are carbon copies in terms of the menu. Both offer typical Spanish seafood and family friendly, in fact the owners are cousins.
A great place for a relaxed low key meal. Restaurante Cala Carbo just gets the vote as it is closer to the water.

Cala d’Hort. One of our favourite lunch spots on the island. A typically Spanish and busy beachside restaurant with a stunning outlook over-looking the impressive and mystical island of Es Vedra (a 413m high pil-lar of rock rearing out of the ocean). This is a great place to eat paella and enjoy simple local fish cooked very well. popular with locals and families but most definitely caters for all with a lovely swimming beach below.
Book well in advance for weekend lunches. A tip; go for an early dinner and avoid the lunchtime crowds, a superbly tranquil meal.

Restaurante Cala d’Hort
Cala d’Hort. A similar quality to El Carmen which is only 50m away but in our opinion El Carmen gets the vote. Same seafood menu, great views and access to the beach. Definitely worth a lunch if El Carmen is full.
