Whether it’s young families looking for a sunny summer getaway, dedicated clubbers who annually descend for the party season, yogis looking to meditate in a retreat in the hills, or European’s visiting for a beach holiday, the magical sunsets, bohemian spirit and island charm is mesmerising to everyone who visits.

Best beaches in Ibiza

Being an island in the Mediterranean, Ibiza isn’t short of beguiling beaches – and if you’ve gathered a sense of the type of destination it is so far (that there’s something for everyone) – the same can be said for its beaches. Soulful spiritualists can be found on the golden cove of Benirras for Sunday sunset drumming sessions, young families love the sandy Cala Llonga, and people who want to get away from it all can find their bliss at secluded Pous des Lleo.

That’s not even the half of it, there are so many beaches in Ibiza that you could spend your holiday seeing a different one each day and you’d not have even scraped the surface. You don't have to travel far to get to a sandy swathe either, with this selection of villas by the beach.

From coastal hiking and deep sea diving, to vineyard hopping and cave hunting – Ibiza is so much more than beats and beaches.

Oliver’s Hidden Gem

One of the best-kept secrets on the island is Chiringuito Utopia, a traditional wooden shack beach bar on a small hidden beach overlooking the bay of San Miguel.

The booming heart of the island, this port city blends old and new – buzzing nightlife fills the streets around the harbour, while the Unesco-listed old quarter of Dalt Vila is an historic gem hidden behind fortified walls. 

A lively resort in an open bay, San Antonio is known the world-over for its party reputation, with its legendary beach bars, super clubs and sunset cafes. Roof terraces, tapas bars and sandy beaches offer a pull outside of the summer season.

A laid-back town that calls out to those looking for more of a relaxing break, Santa Eulalia boasts a buzzing palm-fringed promenade, lovely beaches, art scene and idyllic dining spots (Restaurant Street gives off those classic alfresco Mediterranean vibes).

Lying in the foothills of Sa Talaia, this inviting village offers a taste of authentic island life – here you’ll find baroque architecture, white-washed houses in the hills, traditional eateries and bars playing live music, and locals just going about their daily lives.

A small village on the south west of the island, Es Cubells feels like a bit of a secluded escape from the bustle of the island with only two rustic restaurants, a dreamy beach, a handful of gorgeous coves and a great kids playground sat just behind the church.

A beach resort sheltered by hills, this family-friendly spot is home to a long, white-sand beach with all the necessary beach amenities. Lapped by clean, clear water in mesmerising shades of emerald green and azure blue, it’s ideal for snorkelling, pedalo cruising and swimming. 

Ibiza Travel: Getting there and around

Ibiza is a small Balearic island, which is both easily accessible for flying in to as well as easy to get around – you can pretty much drive across the island in less than an hour. We’ve pulled together a small guide on the best ways to get around Ibiza. 

Getting to Ibiza by plane

As mentioned, Ibiza is very accessible, with direct flights from multiple airports in the UK. Flights only take 2.5 hours from London to the international Ibiza Airport, which is then only 7km south west of Ibiza Town. 

Getting around Ibiza by car

Renting a car is ideal if you’re wanting to explore the island at your own pace and not rely on public transport – plus, car rental is perfect if you’ve got little ones, or your villa is in a rural location! There are plenty of rental companies so prices are competitive, but shop around and book online instead of waiting til you get there. 

Public transport in Ibiza

Ibiza is a well-connected island, and you can easily get from A to B by bus – the network is reliable, frequent and comfortable, so you can be confident you can get to where you need to be by public transport.

Getting around Ibiza by boat

Ferries, water taxis and boat trips – Ibiza offers all manner of water transport, whether you’re looking to hop over to the stunning island of Formentera, are looking to explore some of the hidden coves on the island, or want to go on a full-day excursion. 

Getting around Ibiza by bicycle

For those looking for a more active mode of transport, then cycling is a favoured way to get around the island – there are plenty of places to rent bicycles and the infrastructure is great for getting around this way. The island even offers bicycle tours, if you’d like to be taken on a guided route along the trails!

Top tips

  • If you’d like a little taste of the nightlife, then there’s actually a disco bus that can be arranged to pick you up at your accommodation and transport you to the clubs and bars of San Antonio!
  • Buses run from 7am to 10pm in the summer months, and the routes are extensive and reliable.
  • Water taxis are perfect if you want to nip over to Marina Botafoch, Talamanca, Figueretes and Playa d'en Bossa from Ibiza Town. They run until midnight in the summer, which is great if you want to head over for an evening meal and drinks.
