Size: 1.1 kilometres long, 30-40 metres wide
Getting there: Reached by car, bicycle (be careful of the traffic!), or bus from Ibiza Town (10 km) or Playa d'en Bossa (6 km). Parking can be a nightmare as the parking place is small and can be inadequate in high summer. In low season it's easier.
Es Cavallet is a fabulously picturesque beach due to its white sand and rolling waves. With views of both Ibiza Town and Formentera on a clear day, Es Cavallet's location is a boon, with the scenic drive across the salt flats also part of the experience.
It's an official nudist beach and the main nudist area is in the middle section of the beach backed by sand dunes. The first section of Es Cavellet, close to the car park, is popular with celebrities who usually frequent the two restaurants there. There's an active gay scene at the far end of this large beach which is centred around a fab beach restaurant.
Wild and natural, backed by sand dunes and a little green belt of shade and hills, Es Cavallet feels private. Best viewed when the east wind blows creating large waves that the windsurfers love, whilst the rolling dunes and very broad sandy beach are perfect for beach strolls in the off season. In the summer months with club music and cocktails, the party feeling continues here the whole day long.
Beach bars and restaurants:
The most famous cocktail outpost of this beach is El Chiringuito, a bar and restaurant which pulls a sizeable but relaxed crowd in summer and throws a massive opening and closing party to bookend the season. At the other end of the beach there is also the gay-friendly Chiringay.
