Cala Pada beach

Es Caná, Ibiza. A quiet, broad sandy beach with sparkling clear waters.


Location: Between the resorts Santa Eulalia and Es Caná
Facilities: Loungers, parasols, public toilets, showers, life guard, restaurants and bars, souvenir shop & beach boutique
Activities: Pedalos, kayaks, banana boat and other water fun toys pulled by a boat, boat rental
Size: 200 metres long, 10 metres wide
Getting there: Reached by car, bus or bicycle from Santa Eulalia or Es Caná, each only 2 kms away. Parking can be a squeeze in high season. Alternatively stroll along the coast from either of these two resorts (about 30 minutes from Es Caná and 90 from Santa Eulalia, at a leisurely pace). There are also small ferries which connect to Santa Eulalia, Cala Llonga, Ibiza town and even Formentera.

Cala Pada offers a broad, sandy beach with a slowly shelving seabed and magically transparent waters. It is a very beautiful bay, with fragrant pines, flowering oleander and tall palm trees surrounding the sand bar above craggy red rocks. This is one of the few beaches offering natural shade, as the pine trees grow close to or even at the beach.

There is a long wooden boardwalk stretching from the shore right into the sea; from here you can catch ferries to Santa Eulalia or Ibiza Town and even as far as Formentera.

Often frequented by guests of the nearby Club Cala Pada, the beach is very popular with families. The offshore reefs protect the bay from the sea, so the water is mostly calm and safe to swim.

Seaweed accumulates in some places; this is left to protect the sand from being washed away.

Spotlight Tip: From here you can do walks along the coast to neighbouring beaches. Especially beautiful is the walk to the beach Es Niu Blau towards the South - walk along red cliffs, in the shade of lush pine trees, in a refreshing breeze....

Beach bars and restaurants

Three restaurants line the back of the beach with large terraces where you can sit in the shade and enjoy the view. Two are typical rustic beach bar restaurants, the other is a well known fish and seafood restaurant, which is also very popular with the locals.

There is also a small souvenir shop and fashion boutique.
