Beaches and creeks in Ibiza
Ibiza is a melting pot of tradition and the latest trends. Due to the size of the city, Ibiza has many ports, both hidden and at the foot of the iconic Dalt Vila Wall. Perfect places to get lost with just one foot off the boat.
Comte Beaches are made up of two pleasant coves, Cala Conta and Racó d’en Xic, facing several islets that provide beautiful views from the cove. The beauty of its landscape makes it a must-visit.
Famous for its crystal clear waters, spectacular sunsets and a hippie tradition on sundays that consists on sounding the drums. In the summer months there’s also a hippie market every day from midday to evening
Wilder and less busy than its sisters south of the island, this creek is one of the most beautiful to visit on your Ibiza holidays. Its flaming rocks contrast with the emerald water. Drop your stuff on the shore and dive into this underwater oasis without a second thought.
Ses Salines Beach
Located in the south, facing Formentera, this beach is the embodiment of the spirit of Ibiza. The atmosphere is overwhelming due to the DJ booths in the cool beach bars; but also, there is an sense of calm in the small creek, making this beach the perfect mix of both, the Ibiza of the night and the wild and natural Ibiza.
Undoubtfuly one of the most special spots in Ibiza, which makes it a really popular place. This white-sand beach with turquoise waters has a wide area to lay the towel, and stone fishing huts at the side. The cove is isolated, but a narrow path along the rocks allows the visitor to get there from Cala Salada.
Es Vedrá Island
Although less well known, Ibiza is the place of all mysteries and legends. Uninhabited, the island of Es Vedrá is a famous mass of rock sitting in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. While some claim it could be a lost piece of Atlantis, the continent that disappeared; others claim that the famous Egyptian pyramids were built from pieces of this rock, as the limestone is thought to contain a huge concentration of energy.
From the first light of day, the sun’s rays hit the immaculate cliffs. Lie down on the stone and let yourself warm on contact with it. The days on the beach of Cala d’Hort are often scorching. You come early, before the sun is at its zenith, or in the late afternoon, for golden hour, when the islands of Es Vedra and Es Vedranella are adorned with champagne reflections. The best way of exploring is with a snorkel and mask to witness what goes on underwater.
Privately owned, but publicly accessible, this tiny island, which is almost entirely in its natural state, it’s a place to escape the crowds, and indulge, even if just for the day, in simpler pastimes. Home to some of the most sublime beaches in the Balearics, its ethereal beauty attracts everyone. But you don’t need to have a superyacht to enjoy its charms, you can take a boat ride from Ibiza or Formentera and enjoy for the day

Located in a typical Ibizan building, a rural house in Puig de Missa marked by cubic shapes and African air, there is an exhibition where you can discover what life is like in the Balearic Islands. A unique opportunity to discover the charm of this town, its people, its culture and the traditions that have marked its history. All under a panoramic view that also contemplates the arrival of tourism to the islands and the strong sociological changes that it entailed.
Punics and Romans made this space their acropolis and the Arabs established the Almudaina (government residence) and the Castle (military barracks) in it. The enclosure itself, with towers on each corner, recalls the structure of the Islamic “qars”, which were fortified constructions that were the last defensive redoubt of the city. This castle housed the seat of the Government of the island practically throughout its history, which gives the place an undoubted relevance.
