We know that the main season in Ibiza can be chaotic, so if you are looking for something more quiet head over to these bays – from wild & free bays to perfect little white-sand coves.
Here’s where to find the very best peaceful beaches in Ibiza.
The secluded beach of S’Estanyol, located near Ibiza town, is home to the charmingly rustic yet bohemian Cala Bonita restaurant. This beach is a popular one among the locals, perfect for families to escape the crowd on a busy summer day.
Best for long, lazy days, Cala Carbó boasts clear waters and a relaxed vibe. This idyllic inlet on the south-west coast is a local favourite one. Take a good book and lounge on sunbeds plumped up with mattresses under rakish raffia parasols, then sit down to pans of mouthwatering paella and ice-cold rosé – there’s no rush here.
Best for unspoiled sunbathing, Cala Olivera is located in the exclusive area of Roca Llisa. Cala Olivera is one of those rare Ibiza gems – a beach that’s never overcrowded. To reach it requires a drive down a dusty road so you’ll need a car, but once there you’re met by a sticker-sized cove of golden sand ensconced in emerald water and contorted rocks that cry out to be used as a makeshift bed for the day.
This tiny bay is renown for the best bullit de peix on the island. Home to the authentic Ibicenca restaurant ‘El Bigote‘, Come here for lunch to feast on freshly caught grilled fish, and remember, even royals need to book ahead.
If you love hiking, this is the right beach for you! With a path that goes through pine forests on the side of a cliff edge and breathtaking views out to the blue sea, the walk to Es Portitxol is a journey through vivid colour. Allow an hour to reach the lagoon-shaped bay and enjoy every second of the coastal path. Make sure to bring waters & food as there are no amenities on the beach or along the walk.
