Best Beaches in Ibiza

Ibiza is often celebrated for its legendary all-night parties and bustling beach clubs. Yet, this vibrant island, nestled off the coast of Spain, also offers a tranquil escape for those seeking a slower-paced holiday of beach-hopping and sun-soaked relaxation. The best beaches in Ibiza range from untouched bays to gem-like white-sand coves, and if you’re still looking for a party, of course, there are plenty of beach bars to satiate your thirst. Join us as we uncover the best beaches in Ibiza for your next holiday on the enchanting White Isle.

Cala Gracio

Located in a small bay in San Antonio, Cala Gracio is the larger of two coves and offers a family-friendly beach experience. With its white sands, calm waters, and charming fishermen’s huts, this beach provides a sense of privacy away from the nearby hotels, shielding it from the hustle and bustle of San Antonio. While it’s close enough to walk from San Antonio (just 2 km), its slight distance prevents it from becoming overcrowded, ensuring a peaceful atmosphere. The pretty beach is great for snorkelling and is also an access point to many coastal walks, where visitors can enjoy sweeping views of the Balearic Sea. Hop around the neighbouring bay and enjoy Cala Gracioneta beach for a cocktail and a bite at the delicious El Chiringuito restaurant.

Widely considered one of the best beaches in Ibiza, as well as one of the world’s most attractive beaches, Las Salinas (also referred to as Ses Salinas) is usually one of the first stops for sun-seekers visiting Ibiza. This idyllic stretch of fine sand offers beautiful views of the inland countryside and a relaxing Ibiza bathing experience since there are no waves here. A scattering of cool beach bars offers all the extras that you need for a perfect day at the beach – the Jockey Club and Sa Trinxa are always popular choices.
