Like so many Ibiza beaches, Cala San Vicente offers a curve of golden sand with clear waters, backed by a promenade. It's safe, beautiful and in this case wonderfully wide, so even when busy in high season there's usually space to be found. Cala San Vicente is particularly impressive, however, because of its unbelievably brilliant azure water, and the spectacular clifftop lookout from the southern approaching road from which to view it.

Palm trees are dotted along the small traffic-free promenade with beachside cafes. This beach can get windy at times, and the sea a little choppy, but it is often all the more beautiful for that. Cala San Vicente is populated with an international crowd: lots of young people, families, couples and the elderly, as it's easily accessible.

Beach bars and restaurants

There are plenty of bars and good restaurants along the promenade lining the beach, many serve fresh fish and Paella and are popular with the locals as well. At the right end of the beach, the beautiful On the Beach restaurant serves tasty fresh and organic food. In the nearby village San Vicente you'll find the beautiful Es Cafè "Casa Pepe" country restaurant serving some of the best, really authentic Thai food on the island - well worth a visit!

Nearby hotels and apartments

There are a range of hotel options just behind the beach, or alternatively there are several beautiful Ibiza holiday villas nearby.
