Beach facts and safety

Useful information about the beaches in Ibiza

Geography

The island Ibiza has a surface area of only 572 km². This means that the greatest distance to be covered by road is 40 km; which in turn means that all of these beautiful beaches are within an hour's comfortable drive, wherever you are staying.

Accessibility

The easiest way to explore the coastline and beaches is with a rental car, although, many of the beaches can be reached by regular bus services, and / or local ferry services from the major resorts. (The ferries are a favourite of ours!)

Safety

Although many of the beaches will rent sunshades and parasols, you are best advised to take your own. The sun is very hot here in summer, and we can't stress enough the importance of shade for young children, babies and the fair-haired.

Never leave bags unattended! Leave your credit cards, passports and tickets in the hotel safe and don't take lot's of money to the beach, only what you need for for some drinks and lunch. Don't leave any valuables in the hired car.

Most of the beaches boast soft, sandy floors. Perfect for splashing around near the shore. Do be careful before rushing and plunging headlong into the water - there are beaches with stones and underwater rocks. Look before you leap!
