Cala Jondal is a very beautiful beach, surrounded by pines and jagged cliffs, very popular with boat owners and a stylish crowd. It is one of the more up-market beaches on Ibiza, with a fabulous selection of beach restaurants that are especially popular with the rich and famous as well as smaller chiringuitos favoured by the locals.

Overlooked only by a few exquisitely architected homes high up on the surrounding green hills, the white pebbly beach is dotted here and there with the shade of pine trees before sloping to the glittering, crystal clear waters. Many beach clubs build up sandy parts and provide safe access into the water with little bridges or ramps. After a few metres the seabed is sandy, so bathing is pure joy.

Many beach clubs offer zodiac service (taking a dinghy out to the fabulous boats and yachts anchored off shore to collect the owners to eat in their restaurants). Most will also bring you the drinks directly to your boat - now that's how to live like a boss!

Beach bars and restaurants

There is a good choice of popular restaurants at this beach, many requiring you to book at weekends to avoid disappointment. By the side of the Tropicana Beach Club is a massage area, a shop selling beachwear and a great beach bar that often has live music on a sunday. The Cala Jondal is also home to Blue Marlin Ibiza, one of the most famous VIP beach clubs of the island.

Nearest resort: Playa d'en Bossa. Here you can find the perfect hotel for your holiday only 15 minutes away. Or live the dream of Ibiza in a private villa nearby.
