The longest stretch of sand on the island, Playa D’en Bossa has gone through a dramatic transformation in recent years, resulting in a comparison with Miami’s ultra cool South Beach. The golden sand and clear blue water is perfect for relaxing and working on that essential tan but there is so much more to do.
Sol Den Serra is another one of those Ibiza gems that is slightly more challenging than a normal beach experience but ultimately more rewarding because of this. At the end of the road to Cala Llonga turn right down a dirt track and you’ll be met with a view across the bay of Sol Den Serra that will take your breath away.
Located on the West side of the island Cala Comte is a popular destination and can get very busy during the height of season. It’s worth the trip though, as the sand is beautiful, the views are some of the best Ibiza has to offer, and the atmosphere is very laid back. The sea can be a little choppy at times and will provide some challenges for the swimmers amongst you; there are various landmasses dotted around the horizon to swim to and from; just make sure you’re not out of your depth.
A short walk along the marina from Ibiza Town, Talamanca bay is a picturesque haven of cool boutiques, cafes, bars and upmarket restaurants, all bordering on the long stretch of sand that is the closest beach to Ibiza Town.
Benirras is probably best known for the drummers that descend on the beach to celebrate the sunset but there is much more to this gem. A ten-minute picturesque drive from San Miguel through some breathtaking hills and valleys brings you to a small car park, at the height of the season it can be very busy so getting there early is always advisable, to prevent a long walk to the beach.
