Living, working and breathing Ibiza for the past decade, has meant the team at Ibiza Hire has had plenty of opportunity to spend time exploring every element of what’s on offer here!
And, there is certainly a bucket list of sites to see and enjoy!
We know those more obvious places, like Sunset Strip, San Antonio, the white lengthy sands of Playa d’en Bossa and the world famous nightclubs like Pacha; but our island also hosts a fair amount of less travelled paths and some spectacular hidden gems too!
We’ve gone ahead this month and uncovered all our favourite secret beach locations, so you too can discover a lesser-known side of the island.
So, let’s check out and explore hidden Ibiza.
Cala Mastella, Santa Eulalia
The area of Sant Carles in Santa Eulalia is well-known for its regular off the beaten track, rustic farmland and dusty winding roads.
The small bay of Cala Mastella, situated at the end of a typical campo dirt road, is where you will find this quiet, remote and completely hidden beach.
Surrounded by tall pine-clad hillsides and sporadic finca farm houses, this little cove almost represents a peaceful valley lake, with unusual emerald green waters, which is of course an oasis for calm bathing and snorkelling the rock grass seabed.
The beach offers a relaxed bohemian style with one small chiringuito and the tiny and humble restaurant, El Bigotes. Sitting perfectly looking over the water edge on the rocks at the far left of the beach, this restaurant with its outdoor wood oven offers one option of the daily fish or its famous bullit de peix (fish stew).
However, don’t be fooled by the quiet remote situation, it’s first come and first served here and is full from the moment it opens its doors with regulars and locals.
Cala Olivera, Santa Eulalia
This is a remote spot located close by to the beautiful residential area of Roca Llisa and the islands only golf course is hardly ever visited even in the height of the season.
The quiet little cala is surrounded by cliff flats and woodlands with the occasional clifftop villa peering over the water. The sea bed is rather rocky but the waters are calm and clear, so if you’re looking for peace and tranquility, away from the hustle and bustle of overcrowded beaches, then this is the place to be.
There is one small authentic beach bar with plenty of shaded space, run by a local Ibizan family, of course selling a small menu of fresh fish and traditional bocadillos.
Just beware, there is only one on-site portaloo toilet, but it’s still worth the visit nonetheless. Simply, relax in a Mediterranean haven among the locals and watch the world go by without even hearing a pin drop.
Caló des Moltons, Port de Sant Miquel, Sant Joan
Caló des Moltons, is a small island paradise located in the municipality of San Juan de Labrijta with a steep inlet, flat rocks, small pebbles, fishermens huts and cool clear waters.
While it may seem like a completely private find, the tiny cove of coarse sand and pebble stones that suddenly appears between the cliffs was once very popular for its unique chiringuito called Utopía – a quaint white-washed wooden beach bar which is renowned for good cocktails and sardine specials. Utopia is currently closed, but we hope once again they will recreate this miniscule beach bar; in the meantime Caló des Moltons open turquoise waters and privacy is still as inviting as it once was before!
To get here, you must park your vehicle at the port of San Miguel and follow the coastal path. It’s safe, but good footwear and steady feet is an absolute must.
Punta Galera, San Antonio de Portmany
You will find this unique and beautiful spot north of San Antonio, between Cala Graciò and Cala Salada of smooth rock and several flat terraces, Punta Galera. The staggered cliff edge allows for a peaceful and picturesque beauty, which can only be found here.
The rocky terrain and small adjacent bay is free from any amenities and is a unique experience with many attending for yoga and meditation practice, especially at sunset.
You’ll also find the area’s most renowned inhabitant, who has built his home and life in one of the caves here, filled with monuments, homely exteriors and unique objects from his travels.
Sunsets are also a must stop here, just be extremely careful walking back after dark!
Cala Llentrisca, Es Cubells, San Jose
Reaching this hidden cove is an adventure of its own with beautiful coastal views overlooking the crystalline waters for at least a 10-minute walk from the nearest road.
Cala Llentrisca is one of the most unspoiled and secluded beaches in Ibiza which is rarelyy visited except by a few divers or fishermen hut owners. There are literally no amenities or services, even close by. But if you fancy the fifteen minute trek down the cliff to visit one of the most secret hidden spots in Ibiza, then this is quite possibly it!
Well, that’s it from us on those hidden beach gems. And we have plenty more top spots to come, including some instagrammable favourites!
