Intimate coves in Ibiza for couples

Es Canaret

Es Canaret is a real hidden gem that few people know about, as it does not usually appear in guidebooks or on maps of the island. For this reason, it is an ideal beach for couples to enjoy the calm and to relax in a unique setting.

It’s accessible via a relatively recently opened path that crosses the grounds of a private estate. It is a good option for a swim and, if you feel like it, for snorkelling.

Cala Saladeta

Cala Saladeta is a spectacular beach, quiet and intimate, also ideal for couples. It is located in the western part of the island, in an enclosed bay next to Cala Salada beach. Although it has no facilities of any kind, this cove stands out for being a magnificent enclave.

You can reach this beautiful natural setting full of pine trees from Cala Salada, following a path that you will take in front of the pink house which will lead you to this paradisiacal spot through some rocks.

Es Portitxol

Es Portitxol is a rather unknown and solitary beach that captivates those who visit it. It is an unfrequented pebble beach, mainly due to its difficult access, but it is undoubtedly worth it!

It is a discreet beach, with transparent waters and a privileged landscape. If you have the opportunity to do so, it is best to access it directly from the sea.

Best coves in Ibiza for children

Cala Bassa

Cala Bassa is one of the best coves to go to with children in Ibiza, as it is the closest thing to a natural swimming pool. It has calm, shallow waters, numerous wooded areas to play in or rest in the shade, as well as a wide variety of facilities.

Moreover, it has been awarded the blue flag on several occasions thanks to the quality of its waters.

Cala Nova

You will find this cove near the village of Es Canar, in Santa Eulària des Riu. It is a good option to go with children since it’s a beach with a large sandy area, shallow waters and a lifeguard service.

It is also easily accessible from a nearby car park. In the cove itself you will find a beach bar where you can eat or have a drink while you enjoy this spectacular setting.

Cala Gració

This beach, near the town of Sant Antoni, is perfect for children. It has calm waters, a sun lounge rental service, a lifeguard and a restaurant.

Cala Gració, located very close to the Cap Blanc Aquarium, is usually a must for families with children. Access to it is easy and the only thing you should bear in mind is to arrive early to be able to park easily.

The best Ibizan coves for nudism

Punta Galera

If you’re looking for an iconic spot in Ibiza for swimming and nudism, you won’t find any better than Punta Galera.

This beach, with its clean, deep waters located close to Sant Antoni, is located in a very special setting surrounded by terraced cliffs. It stands out for its calm and, although it is not the most comfortable place for sunbathing, the experience is well worth it.

Aigües Blanques

Although this beach is surrounded by cliffs and close to Santa Eulària is frequented by families, nudism is also common. Its name comes from the colour of its waters, which, due to the waves, always have white foam.

It is worth mentioning that this beach receives a large number of visitors who take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy the mud baths that have very beneficial attributes for the skin, according to many visitors.

Es Racó d’en Xic

Es Racó d’en Xic, together with Es Comte de Tramontana and Es Comte de Ponent, is one of the coves into which Cala Conta is divided and where nudism is common. It is characterised by the clarity and shallowness of its waters. It has a lifeguard, beach huts and a beach bar. Undoubtedly, it’s a great place to relax, rest or snorkel.

The best coves in Ibiza for watching the sunset

Es Calonet

Right next to Cala Tarida you’ll find Es Calonet, a small fisherman’s cove, ideal for watching the sunset.

It is a beach with dry dock huts which, despite not having any facilities, is well worth a visit. At sunset, the setting, with the islet of S’Espartar as a backdrop, becomes truly idyllic.

Cala Comte

Cala Comte is located near Sant Antoni and is one of the most popular coves in Ibiza, especially due to its magnificent sunsets.

During sunset, a magical show of light and colour, with the horizon dotted with islets, will leave you open-mouthed.

Cala d’Hort

When the sun sets behind the horizon, it is the ideal time to visit Cala d’Hort, a small beach in Sant Josep de Sa Talaia.

From here you can enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramic views of Ibiza, with the islets of Es Vedrà and Es Vedranell in the front line.

As you can see, Ibiza has a wide variety of beaches and coves of exceptional beauty that suit all tastes and needs. Whether you are travelling with your family, with your partner or with friends, and whether you want to relax or do water sports, you are sure to find the perfect beach for you.
