With about 48 beaches divided from small hidden bays to big Sandy beaches, Ibiza is the perfect island to go beach hopping. What all have in common is clear water and¬†fantastic for all kinds of watersports. The southern area of San Jos√© counts the most and the popular ones, like Playa den Bossa, in the summer crowded by young and hip people to the natural reserve Salinas, glamorous Cala Jondal, to the smaller ones as Cala D‚ÄôHort and Cala Bassa. The great thing about Ibiza¬īs preservation of natural reserves is that quite a lot of reserves are¬†unspoiled except for maybe a chiringuito to eat a paella or a grilled fish.
At the western coastline, one is able to enjoy beautiful sunsets and sometimes on clear days, one can spot the Spanish mainland. The bars Caf√© del Mar and Mambo in San Antonio¬† are busy during the hours when the sun goes down, with great chill out music and a cocktail people gaze over the sea. Benirras on the North West coast has every Sunday at sunset a hippy tambourine party and is frequented by all kinds of people.
As the south is more popular you should not want miss out on the beautiful rougher north coast, fantastic hidden bays, small beaches with pine trees growing nearly to the water, and thus providing a welcome shade against the hot summer sun. Take a good sunscreen with you and avoid taking sun around 14.00, just have lunch in the one local fish restaurants.
