One of Ibiza's best known beauty spots, the little resort Portinatx is a popular stop on the Round The Island excursion. The bay offers magnificent panoramic views, crystalline water that's great for snorkelling, high, rocky shorelines and a seabed of fine, white sand. There are three good, sandy beaches in this area, all safe for children and offering a variety of activities.

The largest is in the bay across from the main coach park, S'Arenal Gros; little S'Arenal Petit, which is more private, is around the corner from the rocky promontory to the left. The third is Playa Porto Beach in a little cove, surrounded by little pine clad hills, at the end of the main road where you'll also find the lighthouse. There are fantastic scenic walks and spectacular photo opportunities around these beaches, so it's worth taking the time to explore.

Beach bars and restaurants

As the beaches are located within the resort there's a good choice of shops, bars and restaurants close by all three. There are budget eateries as well as some more exclusive options. You also will find good restaurants serving typical local cuisine.

Nearby accommodation
