Cala Pada beach

You will find Pada beach on the east coast of Ibiza. This beach is quieter compared to the first two.
It’s a small but beautiful spot. It is possible to enjoy food and drinks at beach bars and restaurants in the surrounding areas and also to do water sports activities, such as banana boats, kayaking and catamaran sailing.
This spot is assessable with a car but also ferries.


This location is widely known for having a spectacular view of the sunset, but it’s also a place for hippies to gather at Sundays, drumming while the sun gets down.
It is an experience that everyone can join to watch. They start drumming around 15 minutes before the sunset and attracts a lot of people.
If you are travelling around the island in a boat, then notice that there are possibilities for setting anchor and see the sunset from the boat. You will find Benniras in the northern part of the island.


Close to Ibiza town, you find Talamanca beach.
Here it’s possible to eat, drink and swim while you enjoy the sun. The range of bars and restaurants are offering opening hours both in the summer and winter season, which makes it a great spot all year. Talamanca is close to Pacha which sometimes can be felt in the uplifting atmosphere at the beach.

Playa Puerto de San Miguel

As the name indicates, this small and charming beach is used as a port. Despite its small size, it can at the same time be used to be sunbathing in the clear water or enjoy one of Ibiza’s specialty dishes.
This location is peaceful; both because of the nature that has shaped this beach into a cove, but also the fact that it is a bit away from the busiest cities.
If you need a break from the sun, then you can get to see a dripstone cave, Cuevas can Marcas. It can be reached within a walk from the beach.

Platja d’es Cavallet

You will find this nudist beach 20 kilometres by car from Ses Salinas beach.
From this beach, it can on a clear day be possible to have a view over Formentera. Sand dunes and nature gives the feeling of privacy. There is, just like the other beaches, rich opportunities to enjoy the selection of beach bars and restaurants.

Playa S’Estanyol

In San Antonio, you can find a couple of nice beaches. One of them is S’Estanyol.
Walk through the promenade and walk through one beach after each other. Suddenly you will arrive at Playa S’Estanyol. This nice-looking spot has different watersport activities and also offers the possibility to enjoy life on a sunbed.
From this spot, similar to other beaches in San Antonio, it is possible to take a ferry to some of the other beaches on the island. That calls for a beach-crawl!

EXTRA: Café del Mar

It’s not directly a beach, but it’s a classic! This place has had a big influence on the history of the music scene at Ibiza and some of the pioneers of the Ibiza sound started their career at this exact place. It is still possible to stumble into Jose Padilla playing a set at this place.
With its location close to San Antonio, which is widely known for the spectacular view of sunsets you can sit there to enjoy the tunes of the Balearic sound together with a cocktail or a delicious Mediterranean dish.
Is it not a beach you say? Well, it is located directly on the beach. You will get both music, sunset and beach.

EXTRA: Formentera

Formentera is a popular destination to reach by boat. The beautiful small island is in the south of Ibiza. Because of its small size, the island is easily accessible, making it possible to explore the best spots and beaches. Compared to Ibiza, this island is much calmer, not allowing many clubs. Be prepared to experience the most ultimate relaxation. The costs of living in Formentera are higher than in Ibiza.
