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 clear 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, surrounded by little pineclad hillocks, it is in a little cove 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 a short walking distance from the resort there's a good choice of shops, bars and restaurants close by all three.

Nearby accommodation:

There's a wide range of family-friendly accommodation in Portinatx, from economically priced apartments to hotels with entertainment and lots of facilities like the Marconfort Hotel El Greco with its in-house waterpark.

The landscape in the North of the island is exceptionally beautiful, so renting a holiday villa in this area is something really special. The Casa Cova Villa is only 3.5 km from Portinatx, if you want to enjoy the tranquility of a villa whilst also staying near the resort.
