Cala Salada and Saladeta

Featured Ibiza beaches of the week

Where and what?

Just a short drive out of San Antonio are these beaches, both gorgeous and each with a slightly different character. Cala Salada was once named one of Europe's best beaches; you'll see why when you get there.

Why go?

You are free of much water traffic here with only a few private boats bobbing on the horizon looking back at you on the beach. Both places are blessed with nice sands, turquoise-blue waters and are surrounded by pines. Cala Saladeta is worth the hike across the rocks for a quieter more relaxed vibe. They are both very popular with the locals, so weekends get very busy.

Things to do

There's more of a family feel at Cala Salada, which also has its own restaurant of the same name. Here you can get traditional Spanish dishes and paella, plus there's a faster access kiosk for drinks and snacks. Cala Saladeta residents take food and drink with them as there's no beach bar - but it's more than made up for by the great snorkelling and rocks diving you can do there. Then you could go and walk to the fishermen's huts, take a longer walk in the hills to the back over some well beaten paths.

How to get there

Access is by road only unless you have your own boat, in which case you coud swim to shore. There is a parking area with a walkway down to Cala Salada. Cala Saladeta can be reached via this beach by crossing the rocks to the left or for the adventurous, from the car park, walk along the top to find the meandering path on the left that arrives at the far side of the beach.
