Es Niu Blau beach

Santa Eulalia, Ibiza. A lovely little beach that is ideal for families and couples.


Location: Between the resorts of Santa Eulalia and Es Caná
Facilities: Sunbeds, daybeds, parasols, showers, life guard, bars, restaurants, massages (in one of the restaurants)
Size: 100 metres long, 12 metres wide
Getting there: Reached by car, bicycle, or bus from Santa Eulalia or Es Caná, only 2 km away. Alternatively, stroll along the coast from either of these two resorts (about an hour from both, at a leisurely pace). Parking is close to the beach and can be difficult at weekends and in the peak season.

Well signposted on the Santa Eulalia to Es Caná Road, this lovely, intimate beach with fine golden sand is fringed by pine trees and tall bamboo. Some pine trees also grow near the shore, so you can put your towel in the shade below. There are views of Formentera and the green hills of the resort of Siesta, just outside Santa Eulalia. 

The water shimmers in deep blue and shades of turquoise and is safe for swimming. On the left side of the beach, there is a side arm lined with small pleasure crafts and sport boats. At the entrance of the side arm, there is a pebbly beach and fishermen's huts where you can sunbathe on the rocks.

This is a beach where you can relax and get away from it all as it tends to stay quiet, even in peak season. Thanks to its shallow waters, it's ideal for families. Moreover, it offers all the normal amenities including showers, sun loungers and parasols for hire.

Spotlight tips:  On the right end of the beach is a small bay with a wooden swing hanging from a tall tree, where you can swing over the water - pure Caribbean feeling. The perfect Instagram motif.

You can walk along the coast here, to the left, on a well used path that takes you to Cala Pada and further on to Cala Martina, passing other small coves and woodland on the way. Especially the first part up to Cala Pada is very beautiful, walking in the shade of fragrant pine trees along red cliffs, passing small pebbly beaches.

Beach bars and restaurants

There are two restaurants here, one more traditional and the other a modern and chic beach club, both offering extensive a la carte dining options in well-shaded settings. 

At the right end of the bay a cute beach bar offers organic food and drinks. Due to its slightly elevated position you enjoy fantastic views from here, watching people on the swing mentioned above.
