Salinas is one of our absolute favourite beaches. Situated in the south, 10 mins from Ibiza airport. First we have to mention the drive to the beach, which is unlike any place on the island. Ses Salines is a National Park, on your way there you will see pink flamingos near the salt evaporation ponds, where Ibiza’s famous SAL de IBIZA is produced.
Salinas is a long beach, perfect for a marvellous hike. This is where the annual 1st of January traditional run into the sea happens and the locals gather every winter to mingle and celebrate the beginning of a new year.
Starting with warm sand, perfect for a barefoot stroll along the soft waves massaging the shore. First you will see Beso Beach, situated in a prime location offering luxury sun-beds, beach service, a restaurant with your favourite Mediterranean dishes. Next you will pass the Jockey Club, this place is packed with the energy of excitement and dancing is very much allowed and beach beds are also available. Remember to book in advance as the Jockey Club is in high demand all year around. Here you can enjoy a stroll in shallow waters.
Towards the end of the beach you will see the Ibiza Residents favourite spot: Sa Trinxa. Only local DJ legends, with music so good it will make the whole beach dance. Where you do not need a reservation and a table with ice cold drinks and Mediterranean delicacies will be brought to you on the beach. Here you will find a green plank, at the end of which you can dive into deeper water. Watch out for the buoys, they keep you safe from being caught in a vortex or being carried off onto sharp rocks by a wave.
As you continue to walk along the shore you will begin to see how the soft sand will change into hard cliffs, the change of texture and colour is radical and will enable you to enjoy the Salinas experience in multiple ways. If you continue to walk to the end you will see coves, stone carvings, cliffs, a pine forest and at the very end, a watch tower.
Cala Jondal is situated towards the south of the island, San Josep. This is a luxury beach and a home to many household names: the island’s favourite Blue Marlin, which needs no introduction. Forever loved and cherished Yamanja, and relatively new and exquisite Can Jondal, serving you the most abundant tables and drinks galore. The whole beach stretch feels like a festival, whichever venue you decide to visit for lunch you will be submerged into a world of decadence and pure joy.
Cala Comte in the area of San Antoni is a masterpiece and not a beach. If you are planning a trip there, Bazaar Estate would advise you to plan a trip for the whole day. We promise you that once you arrive you will not want to leave again. Not only will we mention the unbelievably clear waters, the colour of turquoise that you will not be able to take your eyes off but that the beach splits into two parallel worlds. On the left you have a softer wave and a more cove-like feeling, resting at the foot of a cliff on top of which Sunset Ashram is placed gracefully. The restaurant serves you pure Ibiza Vibes through their eloquent menu, cocktails and music curation, inviting only the most talented, atmospheric & local DJ’s to create a perfect soundscape for your unforgettable moment. The restaurant overlooks a panorama so grand, your peripheral vision will not suffice.
You can take the stone stairs down to the connected beach on your right. It is longer and hosts a water sports area where you can rent a jet ski to observe the natural beauty of this place from a different perspective. At the end offering a traditional restaurant with an equally spectacular view.
Punta Galera is a small and secluded point situated in the south of Ibiza in the area of San Antonio, on an old stone quarry forming a flat cliff perfect for bathing in the nude. You can safely dive into the water and get back up. This particular location doesn’t offer sand or a Chitinguito, so we advise you to bring a picnic.
Cala Nova is a spectacular curved stretch with soft sand and waves sufficient for the dedicated surfer.
The waves get strong, it makes sense to be mindful of the intensity, while you play in the waves and experience a throwback to a sweet moment in childhood.
On the beach you will find multiple restaurants and beach clubs such as Aiyanna beach, L’Amorigen, Atzaro Restaurant & Chiringuito. Whichever you pick- it will be a good choice. All venues share the same spectacular views, delicious menus and Ibiza atmosphere which gives you a sense of otherworldly reality, where paradise is truly possible.
Cala Xaraca is a mermaid cove beach perfect for snorkelling. Situated in the North of the island on your way to Benirras. It can get crowded at the main sandy beach, as it boasts a magical gradient of turquoise and clarity of water that will leave you stunned. There is a path on your right, where through the rocks you can reach a more secluded part, it offers more privacy as it is hidden. Loved by local residents, needless to say that nudity is welcome here. You will find an area you can safely climb onto different levels and jump off into the clearest and softest waters that make you feel as if you’re being wrapped in silk. You will find a local restaurant on the main part of the beach. It is also a perfect spot for a picnic. There is little shade on the beach so we advise you to wear sunscreen and don’t forget a hat.
Benirras is a legendary beach famous for its celebratory atmosphere. Here, you will absolutely run into your partners in crime and most likely see all the people you have met by chance already, especially on a Sunday. This day in particular is known to attract many tourists as well as locals. Due to the daily ritualistic drumming sunset session, where local hippies gather with their instruments and their handsome hearts to dance, drum and sing to the setting sun. This has become such a spectacle that the beach joins the ritual at full capacity. You can hear the drum beat and joyful cheer from the car park. This day is particularly busy, so to avoid traffic jams and unpleasant parking situations, the Bazaar Team advises you to arrive early and spend the whole day here.
Elements Restaurant is the locals favourite and when the locals love it, we know you will love it too. The owner is a very much loved Ibiza Winter Resident who has deep and meaningful connections with many charismatic locals and this feeling of community and deep connection is exactly why Elements was created. Offering lunch and dinner menus, smoothie bar and a smooth transition into a nightclub when the sun goes down. Right after your participation in the drum ritual, Elements awaits you on the dance floor.
