Peace and beauty at Cala Tarida

Featured Ibiza beach

Where and what?

A popular beach in the family resort of Cala Tarida in the South West of the island; the beach is long and wide with fine white sand with rocky platforms and islets that are fun to explore and dive from. With the sweet smell of the surrounding pine trees, it's a pretty piece of nature to behold.

Why go?

If you want peace and tranquillity, and a great place for the entire family, this is the place to come. The sun shines from morning to evening, thanks to its south westerly position and if you're here, at the right time of the year, you'll be treated to a magnificent sunset.

This being a resort, people from the surrounding hotels and apartments will drop down to this beach, so there may be crowds if you go in the middle of the day, but there is space for everyone on this long and wide beach.

Things to do

With shallow clear waters to the right, this is a very safe place for kids to mess about in the water. To the left, there's a deeper sea with a lot of more waves. There are many great bars and restaurants, serving Spanish and some local dishes lining the back of the beach; it is also the location of the stylish Cotton Beach Club. Also, you have a supermarket and a few shops if you want a DIY lunch or to browse for souvenirs. 

How to get there

If you come by car from San An, estimate 15 minutes and from Ibiza Town, just over double that. Even better, catch one of the regular summer ferry services from San Antonio, so you can arrive to beach in leisurely style.
