Cala Nova Beach

Es Caná, Ibiza. Natural and unspoilt, with the right wind Cala Nova is one of Ibiza's surf spots.

Location: Next to the resort Es Caná
Facilities: Loungers, parasols, showers, restaurants, lifeguards, access for the disabled
Activities: Pedalos
Size: 250 metres long, 20 metres wide
Getting there: Reached by foot or bicycle from Es Caná a few hundred metres away, or by car following the road to San Carlos and then Cala Leña (there's beautiful sightseeing along this drive).

Close to the resort of Es Caná you'll find the Cala Nova, a wide, long curve of sandy beach. It has blissfully shallow waters over clean, golden sand which extend quite a way into the sea. With the right wind Cala Nova is one of Ibiza's few beaches with decent surf, and is therefore very popular with the few yet dedicated surfers on the island.

The surrounding scenery is wild and natural with a little hill covered in pine trees to the left for energetic walks. It's beautiful even in bad weather, when the spectacular breakers make the undertow particularly dangerous - so be very careful and heed any warnings.

Tip: You can walk around the headland to the left to bring you to the small cove of Cala Leña, to the right takes you to Es Cana.

Beach bars and restaurants

At the far north end of the beach right in the sand is a small beach hut, very popular with the locals. It serves tasty snacks but also proper meals, especially fish - try the fresh sardines! A great new hot spot is the bright and beautiful restaurant Aiyanna, which overlooks the entire bay, offering delicious, fresh Eastern Mediterranean-inspired food in a lovely, relaxed environment.

Nearby accommodation
