The trek to Es Portitxol is a voyage through vibrant color, with a trail that winds through pine forests on the side of a high cliff edge with amazing views out to sea. Give yourself an hour to get there and take your time enjoying the descent.
The trip to Ses Balandres is a true assault course, complete with crooked walkways, a sheer drop down a rockface, and a decrepit stairway that appears to have seen better days. The vistas after you're down are breathtaking, and the explorer in you will enjoy the challenge. Wear your sneakers.
The approach to this serene bay is typified by winding roads across hills covered in pine trees. The beach below suddenly comes into view as you climb the last promontory, its white sand and glittering cerulean water luring you in.

Es Cavallet is all about pomp, posturing, and maximizing tans. It is framed by dunes and has a craggy shoreline to match the torsos that adorn it. To experience a mix of sexualities and nude bodies, travel south. The oiled-up and sun-dried gather at Chiringay.
Pou des Lleó
Although a favorite among residents, this beautiful small bay is nevertheless kept a secret from those who aren't regulars. Due to the distinctive wooden fishermen's huts that surround it, it always exudes an old-world charm even in the height of tourist season.
Cala Gracio, the biggest of two coves on a small bay near San Antonio, is a beach that is good for families with white sands, calm waves, and fishing cottages.

Visit the nearby bay and relax on the Cala Gracioneta beach before enjoying a meal at the wonderful El Chiringuito restaurant.
Cap des Falcó
Cap des Falcó, favored by affluent sybarites who wouldn't step foot on San Antonio's Sunset Strip, is the discerning option for lovers of dusk. The glass-still salt flats of Ses Salines and the gently crashing Med both encircle this enormous expanse of white pebbles and rocks. The Experimental Beach cocktail bar is also located there, so after getting wasted with sundowners, jump off the moving jetty for some salty recuperation.
Las Salinas, regarded as one of Ibiza's greatest beaches, is frequented by a large group of attractive young people, who are especially abundant when the music picks up at one of the lively beach bars.

On the surface, San Miguel is just a popular area for carefree seaside lounging—a soft, sandy harbor with crystal-clear shallows ideal for young children to bounce around in. But if you circle around to the left of the main beach along the rickety cliffside road, you'll find Utopia, one of the island's most endearing chiringuitos. Come here to enjoy eating sardines that have just been cooked while relaxing on basic waterside loungers. This is the pinnacle of Barefoot Ibiza.
El Bigotes is located in this quaint coastal enclave, and legend has it that the King of Spain was once pushed away because he hadn't made a reservation. You can enjoy freshly caught, grilled fish here at noon, but even royalty needs to make reservations.
Cala Conta & Cala Bassa
Two of Ibiza's most well-known beaches are the neighboring bays Conta and Bassa, and for good reason—the water is gin-clear and has a soft aqua shimmer, and the sand is fine and white. Arrive by boat and pass by the numerous little islets that dot the coastline. They are wonderful beaches for those without cars and for those who enjoy a party atmosphere. In the summer, they are very popular because they are so accessible from San Antonio (across the Bay on a ferry), so go early to beat the crowds and stay until sunset.
Sol d’en Serra
There aren't many beaches that sing as loudly at night as they do during the day, but Sol d'en Serra is one of them. This lonely, shingly cove is even more alluring at dusk. Amante, a restaurant carved into the lit-up, soaring cliffs, is the perfect place to experience its subtle alchemy. Here, in the swirling light of moon legerdemain, time slips away as you look out at a pitch-black sea that shimmers like a silver-crested blanket.
Although there is no sand here ('punta galera' meaning 'flat rocks'), islanders nevertheless regard this as one of the best beaches in Ibiza because to its spiritual ambiance, enjoyable cliff-jumping during the day, and breathtaking sunset views. As the day draws to a close, the imposing cliffs glow burned ochre, and they make excellent viewing vantage points for the colorful sky. Bring a yoga mat for some downward dogs in the open air since sun salutations at dusk are usual.
Es Vedrà, the mysterious rock that protrudes abruptly out of the water near the island's southwest edge, is as much of an Ibiza legend as Carl Cox. It is said to be the third most magnetic location on earth. The finest place to see it is from Cala d'Hort, and the tiny beach is particularly popular for its stunning golden sand and the outstanding seafood served at nearby clifftop restaurant Es Boldado.
Cala Jondal - last of the 23 Best Beaches Ibiza
The conker-colored bobos who float through interminable summers cruising around the Med enjoy Cala Jondal, and many of its guests arrive by superyacht before being transported to land. Then, if you're at renowned beach club Blue Marlin, days fly by in a hedonistic blur of Champagne and sun. Try one of the many other eateries or chiringuitos that dot the pebbled shore for a more relaxed experience.
