With two decades of living, working and breathing Ibiza, we’ve had plenty of time to explore everything this island has to offer!
As much as we love the Sunset Strip, San Antonio, the long white sands of Playa d’en Bossa and world-famous nightclubs like Pacha, we also love the lesser-known wonders and hidden surprises.
In this month’s blog, we’ve uncovered all our favourite secret beach locations so you can discover the lesser-known parts of our beloved island.
Here are some places in Ibiza you should check out and explore.
Secret beach spots Ibiza: Cala Mastella, Santa Eulalia
Cala Mastella, located in Sant Carles, Santa Eulalia is a quiet, remote, wholly hidden beach at the end of a typical dirt road. This little cove is surrounded by tall pine-clad hillsides and sporadic finca farmhouses, offering unusual emerald green waters that make an oasis for bathing and snorkelling.
The beach offers a relaxed bohemian style with a tiny chiringuito and a modest restaurant, El Bigotes. With only one or two menu options, the catch of the day or a bullit de peix (fish stew), this restaurant is a ‘no frills’ setting situated on the rocks at the far left end of the beach. However, the quiet remote ambience shouldn’t fool you; it’s a first-come-first-served place full of regulars and locals from the moment it opens.
Secret beach spots in Ibiza: Cala Oliveira, Santa Eulalia
Despite being so close to the affluent and busy residential area of Roca Llisa, the masses rarely frequent this remote location.
With the occasional clifftop villa peering over the water, this little cove is surrounded by cliff flats and woodlands. This is the place for you if you’re looking for peace and tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle of overcrowded beaches. The seabed is slightly rocky, but the waters are calm and clear.
One small authentic beach bar offers shaded seating, run by a local Ibizan family, serving traditional bocadillos and fresh fish. You’ll only find one portaloo toilet on site, but that doesn’t make it any less worth the trip. Enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle amongst the locals and watch the world go by.
Secret beach spots in Ibiza: Caló des Moltons, Port de Sant Miquel, Sant Joan
The small island paradise of Caló des Moltons lies in San Juan de Labrijta and features a steep inlet, rocks, pebbles, huts for fishermen, and a calm, clear sea.
While it may seem like a private find, the tiny cove of coarse sand and pebble stones suddenly appearing between the cliffs was once very popular for its unique chiringuito called Utopia – a quaint white-washed wooden beach bar renowned for good cocktails and sardine specials.
Utopia is closed, but we hope they will reopen this little beach bar someday. In the meantime, Caló des Moltons’ turquoise waters and privacy remain as inviting as ever!
If you want to get here, you must park your car at the port of San Miguel and follow the coastal path. The walk is safe, but wearing good footwear and having steady feet is important.
Secret beach spots in Ibiza: Punta Galera, San Antonio de Portmany
Punta Galera is located north of San Antonio, between Cala Gracio and Cala Salada, and consists of smooth rock and several flat terraces. The staggered edge of the cliffs creates a serene and picturesque beauty. It offers a unique experience, especially at sunset, with its rocky terrain and small bay free of any amenities.
Also, the area’s most renowned inhabitant has built his home and life in one of the caves, complete with monuments, homely exteriors, and unique objects. This is also a great place to see sunsets, but be extremely careful walking back after dark!
Secret beach spots in Ibiza: Cala Llentrisca, Es Cubells, San Jose
You must walk a minimum of ten minutes from the nearest road to reach this hidden cove, which offers beautiful coastal views over the crystalline waters.
Cala Llentrisca is one of Ibiza’s most unspoiled and secluded beaches, rarely visited by divers or fishermen. The area is devoid of amenities or services. Nevertheless, if you fancy hiking down the cliff to find one of Ibiza’s most secret hidden spots, this could be the place for you!
