If you enjoy discovering new coves and beaches or just looking for places by the sea where you can enjoy unforgettable experiences, it is very likely that you have already written down the word Ibiza in your notebook of upcoming trips. Although this is not the main tourist attraction offered by the island, Ibiza currently has, with almost 50 coves spread along 210 km of coastline, an enormous natural wealth, with some of the best beaches in Ibiza are also World class.
Bathed by crystalline waters and with an incredible natural environment, the Ibizan coves not only stand out for their beauty, but also for their contrasts and singularities, which allows you to enjoy a great variety of coves in a relatively small territory.
For this reason, given the great variety of coves that can be found in Ibiza, before travelling to the island it is recommended to know which ones are the best, whether for their popularity, beauty or location.
Cala Salada, the most visited cove in San Antonio
With more than 200 metres in length and surrounded by an incredible natural environment, Cala Salada is one of the most visited coves in the bay of San Antonio and, consequently, one of the most famous in Ibiza. Apart from its beauty, which rivals that of other important coves of the bay such as Cala Gració or Cala Bassa, Cala Salada also stands out for its excellent location, just over 4 km from the centre of the bay and only 20 minutes by car from the hotel Dorado Ibiza Suites.
It is a cove of gravel and fine sand that has been able to maintain, practically intact, a 100% marine essence. The surroundings of Cala Salada, full of pine forests and its crystal clear, shallow waters, make this cove one of the most beautiful and popular places on Ibiza.
Cala Llonga, one of the most popular beaches on the east coast of Ibiza
With a privileged location, right between Cala Blanca and Cala Olivera, Cala Llonga is today one of the main coves on the east coast of Ibiza. Popular with tourists and residents for its characteristic fine white sand and shallow seabed, Cala Llonga is more than 200 metres long and is surrounded by the most peaceful and comforting surroundings.
Cala Vedella, Ibizan tranquility
Protected from the elements by a small bay, Cala Vedella is for many tourists one of the most beautiful coves on the south-west coast of Ibiza and, at the same time, one of the most popular on the coast of Sant Josep de Sa Talaia. The bay that surrounds this cove not only protects it from the wind, but is also the place where restaurants and cafés accumulate, all of them on the beachfront.
Cala Tarida, one of the most popular coves in Ibiza
With its 250 metres long and 50 metres wide, Cala Tarida has become one of Ibiza’s most emblematic coves. Located about 6 km from Sant Josep and 19 km from the centre of the city of Ibiza, Cala Tarida has a very closed morphology, which alternates areas of sand with rocky platforms and islets, as well as fairly urbanised spaces with a natural environment of great beauty.
