Es Codolar Beach

Playa d'en Bossa, Ibiza. This pebble beach is one of the longest and least frequented beaches on the island.

Location: 15 minutes drive from Ibiza Town or Playa d'en Bossa
Facilities: None - pure relaxation!
Activities: Surf, birdwatching
Size: 3.2 km long, 55 metres wide
Getting there: Reached by car on the road from Ibiza Town, past the airport towards Cala Jondal and before Sa Caleta. Take the left turn just after the small supermarket on the left. Parking is only allowed on the car park at the beginning at the beach, not after the barrier.

To the east of Sa Caleta and literally under the flight path of the airport, Es Codolar is one of the longest and least frequented beaches on the island. It's completely covered with large grey pebbles, (in Catalan a pebble is a 'codol') making access a bit tricky (bathing shoes recommended), but once you pass this barrier, soft sand and crystal clear water feel like heaven.

On windy days or after a storm some surfers try their luck to get a ride, and the beach is also popular for walks amongst locals, especially those with dogs in tow. The backdrop is the famous Salinas salt pans - part of Ibiza's Wildlife Conservation Area. If you're staying in Ibiza Town this beach is only 15 minutes away.

Nearest resort:
