Location: The southern coast of Ibiza, close to airport and 10 minutes drive from Playa d'en Bossa
Facilities: Sunbeds, parasols, restaurant, massage, beach boutique
Activities: Relaxation, snorkelling
Size: 100 metres long, 10 metres wide
Getting there: Reached by car, on the road from Ibiza Town, past the airport towards Cala Jondal. Parking is on rough ground close to the beach and can be very busy in August. Or takeNo 26 bus, 4 times a day in summer, on the route Ibiza Town - San José - Cala Vadella (get off at the stop 'La Caleta' and walk 10 minutes to the beach).

To the east of Cala Jondal and reached by an unsurfaced access road, the beach of Sa Caleta, also named Es Bol Nou, is in an absolutely beautiful setting. The beach is backed by dramatic red cliffs, creating a feeling of seclusion compounded by its horse-shoe shape. This sandy beach has very shallow, clear water, making it ideal for families and younger children, and also a great spot for snorkelling. Sa Caleta is very popular with the locals at the weekend and, being only small, it can get very full.

Tip: This picturesque cove, lined with rustic fishermen's sheds, is also home to the ruins of the first Phoenician settlement on Ibiza dating back to 654 BCE. Declared a world heritage site in 1999, it is free to look around with plenty of historical information available. Walk up to the top of the cliff on the left hand side.

Bars and restaurants:

There is one restaurant here, which shares the name of Sa Caleta. Beautifully decorated in a rustic nautical theme, this seafood-focused eatery is popular amongst locals and open all year round. In high summer a masseur also sets up shop in front, just at the entrance to the beach.

Nearest resort: Playa d'en Bossa, where you can find many great hotels, or for something even more special, there are some beautiful villas in the San José area, only minutes away from here.
