The beach

Cala Jondal is a very beautiful beach, surrounded by pines and jagged cliffs. It is very popular with boat owners and the jet set. 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 locals.

Overlooked only by a few exquisitely designed villas high up on the surrounding green hills, the white, pebbly beach is dotted here and there with the shade of pine trees before sloping into 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.

Beach bars and restaurants

There is a good choice of popular, quite exclusive restaurants and beach clubs at this beach, requiring you to book at weekends to avoid disappointment. 

Many have great facilities including massage areas and beach boutiques. Some offer live music on selected evenings - and Cala Jondal is also home to Blue Marlin Ibiza, a famous VIP beach club with live DJ sessions.

The restaurants and beach clubs often offer a zodiac service (taking a dinghy out to the fabulous boats and yachts anchored offshore to ferry the owners to shore). They can also bring you food and drinks directly to your boat - now that's how to live like royalty!
