The first time I visited Ibiza was 2 years ago. I fell in love straight away. Ibiza is known for it’s clubs and famous DJ’s from all over the world, but it seriously has a lot more to offer!
Ibiza has everything you need for the perfect summer holiday; Sunshine, palm trees, white sandy beaches, breathtaking sunsets, great food, terrific views and very friendly people – and don’t forget the sexy language:). Exactly what I needed after some very busy working months. I booked my ticket and found some very nice spots that are worth sharing with you!
Purpose: Chill, relax, soak up vitamins, tanning and eat & drink as much as possible!
Via Air BNB I found a beautiful villa, 5 min ride from Santa Gertrudis. I specifically looked for this charming village, located in the middle of Ibiza – which is much-loved by locals, since I wanted to chill & relax and I found the perfect place ever!
So what else has Ibiza to offer? Stunning sandy beaches with crystal clear waters and hidden coves it is!
Each day I tried a different beach to find out what’s best on the island. Check my TOP 5 beaches of Ibiza:
1. Cala Olivera
Close to Cala llonga, east of Ibiza – you will find this quiet almost private small sandy rocky beach. On the right side you can climb up the rocks where you will have a good view of this peaceful area. Check out the beautiful houses in the hills – can you imagine you live here?
This beach even has a small restaurant that serves fresh fish! TIP » Try the sardines and their cocktails!
2. Playa Cala Mastella
It’s a great experience to go to this almost private stunning sandy beach in the north of Ibiza. On the way you will find this small village called San Carlos where you definitely need to stop for a coffee. Such a lovely place.
Playa Cala is a very tiny beach where you can relax big time. Not known by many tourists and that’s exactly what we love!
Close to Playa Cala you will find this great beach! When you arrive at Aguas Blancas you need to pay 3 euro’s for parking and it’s a long walk to get to the beach, but it’s so worth it. Walk all the way to the right where you have more privilege. The water is incredibly clear and perfect for snorkeling. Don’t be alarmed when you find people walking around covered in a mud to get the perfect golden summer tan. Does it work? No idea, but I tried it:)
Drive up in the hills to the north of Ibiza where you will find this small beautiful beach Benirras, located between rocks and hills. Only 3 restaurants and some water sports facilities are available, but you don’t need anything else. Incredible breathtaking views on the right side of Benirras. Make sure you are on time when the sun goes down, it’s just perfect!
Restaurants serve great fresh fish and in the evening there’s live music and men playing the drums.
5. Cala Carbo
A 10 minutes drive from San José you will find this small, chic, secluded cove, surrounded by pine trees. They have the best sun beds loungers, but it come with a price; 7,50 euro – mattresses and sheets included!
Located south west of Ibiza of only 50 meters long, ideal at the beginning and end of the season.
TIP » Rent a car so you’re free to travel where and when you want.
