Favorited by locals and visitors alike, two of Ibiza’s most stunning beaches lie along the west coast: Cala Bassa and Cala Conta.
The rocky shoreline, with its vibrant orange bluffs and steep hillsides, contrasted against the lush green pines and turquoise waters of the Balearic Sea makes for remarkable vistas. Be sure to bring your camera as this is one extraordinary landscape you won’t want to miss.
- Cala Bassa
Consistently rated as one of Spain’s Top 10 Beaches, Cala Bassa provides excellent opportunity for swimming, snorkeling and picnicking. Fine dining is also available at a number of beachfront restaurants and establishments, including the Cala Bassa Beach Club which offers ibizan, creative fusion, oriental and gourmet cuisine.
- Cala Conta
Drop anchor on your Ibiza yacht charters and swim in Cala Conta’s crystal clear waters. Cala Conta offers spectacular views of the islands that dot Ibiza’s coastline. With stunning turquoise waters, sand dunes, and a number of coves to explore, Cala Conta is easily one of the most popular beaches on the island.
The shallow waters of Cala Conta’s shores are ideal for lounging and sun bathing. The rocky shoreline is ripe for exploration on foot, while the smaller cove on the west end is favorited by nature lovers and those looking for a more secluded reprieve.
- Sa Conillera Island
Set sail across the San Antonio Bay to Sa Conillera Island, a small mostly uninhabited stretch of land that literally means “rabbit island.”
Once used by pirates as an attack point against San Antonio, the island is steeped in folklore, and locals claim the spirits of witches, pirates and sorcerers inhabit its shores. While that remains to be seen, what is clearly evident is the stunning display of color that illuminates the skies above Sa Conillera every evening.
Arrive just before dusk and dock alongside the cliffs, where local sun-worshipers gather to witness what is easily one of the most magnificent sunsets in the Balearic. As the sun sets over the horizon, the cheerful sounds of local musicians and applause from spectators echo in the wind, making your sunset experience that much more unforgettable.
- Es Vedra Island and Atlantis
Those interested in Ibiza’s rich history can take a break from their Ibiza yacht charters and check out the mythical rock island of Es Vedra and the famed sight of Atlantis.
As Ibiza’s most famous rock formation, Es Vedra stands nearly 400 meters high, and is made entirely of limestone rock. Shrouded in legend, Es Vedra is a magnetic location where navigational instruments inexplicably go haywire. Es Vedra is also rumored to be a popular location for UFO sightings and mysterious light activity, as well as home to Ulysses’ mythical sea nymphs in Homer’s Odyssey.
Directly facing Es Vedra Island lies the enchanted cove of Atlantis. The Lost City of Atlantis, or perhaps the quarry from which the city was built, is a present day labyrinth of caves, sea pools and rock formations that are truly a sight to behold.
This unique landscape, believed by many to resemble the moon, is easily accessible by boat. Explore the magnificent lagoon and mysterious wall carvings as you cruise the waterways surrounding Es Vedra and Atlantis. You may even find lost treasure, rumored to have been buried by ancient Carthaginians as an offering to the goddess Tanit.
Sail southward along Ibiza’s east coast as you marvel at the brilliant colors of the sea, ranging from clear blue to a vibrant turquoise. Snorkel, sunbathe, or simply lounge on the deck and watch as stunning yachts sail by. Once docked at Formentera, enjoy a delicious paella lunch or snack on salted fish, a local favorite, as your cares magically drift away.
Then hit the beach at Playa de Ses Illetes, heralded as one of the most stunning beaches in the world. Certainly the most bohemian of the Balearic Islands, Playa de Ses Illetes offers plenty of opportunity for relaxing and lounging on the sand.
