Cala Tarida, Ibiza

This beautiful, sandy bay on the West coast has a few hotels, apartments and shops. Peaceful and family friendly, Cala Tarida offers great bathing and watersports.

Nestled in a sandy, sheltered bay on the west coast of the island, surrounded by pine-covered hills, can be found the tiny resort of Cala Tarida. It boasts a long beach of fine, white sand (which is south-facing and therefore blessed by sunshine from morning until evening), beautiful clear turquoise and azure waters, and some of the most amazing sunsets on the island.

Cala Tarida is situated close to San Antonio, which is a fifteen minute bus ride away, or you may prefer to take one of the frequent ferry boats. From San Antonio, there is a regular bus service to the rest of the island. The capital, Ibiza Town, is a thirty-five minute drive away.

In comparison to some of the livelier resorts, Cala Tarida offers a peaceful, tranquil alternative. There are no nightclubs here, but there are some bars and places to eat, including the beautiful Cotton Beach Club which clings to the cliff-face overlooking the beach.

There is a supermarket and a few shops, and the resort offers great bathing in safe, shallow water, water sports and a dive centre.

Most hotels in Cala Tarida are quality hotel complexes close to the beach, providing a wide range of entertainment, sports and amenity, but there are also apartment complexes and private holiday villas catering to a wide range of tastes and budgets.
