Ibiza is an island of world fame. Since the arrival in the 60’s of the hippy movement, leisure tourism has grown overwhelmingly. We are not going to tell you anything about these leisure centers. We are going to discover the 10 best places to visit in Ibiza, those that have enchanted generations of tourists and that today continue to amaze those who know them.
1 The sunset of Cala Conta
The corner preferred by many to spend the afternoons, Cala Conta welcomes a spectacular sunset, especially beautiful in days with clouds and wind, when the sky turns reddish. Although the beach is usually crowded in summer, we will tell you a secret: the surroundings of Cala Conta are much more incredible than the beach itself, with dreamy coves. From the tower of Cala Conta the sunset can leave you breathless.
2 Es Portixol, a lost place
A little known cove, with a somewhat winding access, but worth visiting. A backpack with water and desire to enjoy is the only thing you need. Es Portixol is a circular cove where the sea penetrates peacefully. The fishermen’s huts are the only construction in a few kilometers. A natural landscape and absolute tranquility.
3 Cala D’hort, a place to visit
Cala D’hort is the name of the beach that faces the islet of Es Vedrá, but it is also the name given to the whole area that surrounds it. The most spectacular corner is found in the Torre des Savinar. Like all the old defense towers of the island, the panoramic views of the coast are amazing.
4 Es Pas de S’illa, visiting the north of Ibiza
Probably one of the places in Ibiza that is most worth visiting, although apart from Solo Ibiza, few seem to know this destination. Despite being north, in a very tourist area known as the port of San Miguel, the fact of having to access through a secondary road turns the place into a very peaceful corner. Es Pas de S’illa is the name given to a small two-sided beach located at the beginning of the small bay of San Miguel. On the one hand, the views of the harbor are spectacular. On the other, a small natural cove of high cliffs will leave us speechless.
Although you will not find Cala Mastella highlighted on any map, the truth is that this small cove keeps hidden corners at a glance. A short walk along the left bank takes us to a unique restaurant, well known in the local population. We do not ask you to go to lunch, but of course, the feeling of peace and tranquility that it offers you, and the beauty of the landscape invite you to do so.
6 Dalt Vila, the charming city of Ibiza
If you are going to reach the island by the port, or you are going to move to Formentera, you will see on your head the profile of a wall. Above it, crowning the city, you will find the tower of the cathedral. Although you have several accesses, we recommend the Puerta de Ses Taules if you are walking. An ascending route awaits you between old buildings, churches and cobblestone streets. If you like to get up early, do not miss the sunrise from the Plaza de la Catedral.
7 Broll de Buscastell, the island’s garden
From a small spring that springs up between the mountains we can find the Bushestell Broll. For lovers of very green and humid places, enjoying this little gem is going to be a unique sensation. In a journey of about two kilometers we will be accompanied by the flow of water between the pipelines of unknown eras.
8 Cala Tarida, a beach with surprise
Many will recognize Cala Tarida as a tourist beach on the coast of Sant Josep. But the truth is that Ibiza keeps small secret corners, unless you move cautiously along the coast. In this case we are going to find an idyllic corner, with crystal clear waters, where it does not matter what time of year you are in, so that you feel like at least sticking your feet in.
9 Sa Caleta, the first settlers
Sa caleta was the first recognized human settlement on the island of Ibiza. We are sure that the choice was not accidental. Next to the remains of that town, we find small coves that flow into two beaches. It is Colodar on the one hand, with a beach full of pebbles and the presence of dolphins at some times of the year, and the beach of Sa Caleta itself. A walk over its cliffs is a visual spectacle.
10 Las Salinas, something more than a beach
Probably Las Salinas has been the most visited beach by the most illustrious tourists of the island in each season. But if we understand that only the beach gives name to the place, we will be wasting two spectacular spots. On the one hand, the one that takes us to the end of the Es Cavallet beach. A walk in which you will find small coves with sculptured stones. On the other, the salt jetty, a pier next to a small enclosure of houses with a marine atmosphere.
