Beauty and diversity at Es Cavallet beach

Featured Ibiza beach

Where and what?

Located in the south of the island is this long, open beach of just over 1km with golden sand, the bright blue of the sky and dark blue of the sea. It is Ibiza's first ever nudist beach, contains the "official" gay beach of Ibiza as well as a great mix of people from all over the world.

Why go?

Go for its openness and cosmopolitan air as well as the great views of both Ibiza Town and neighbouring island, Formentera. Reaching it, you get to drive through the spectacular salt flats and once there, you will feel a sense of being away from it all, with its sand dunes, stunning wildlife and gently rising hills to the rear.

The seabed is rock free and great for swimming. This is a great quieter alternative to the popular Las Salinas beach nearby.

In the winter months it is a very popular spot for kite surf enthusiasts.

Things to do

The north end of the beach is where you can spot the odd celeb and is also where there is less nudity. Here you can eat in the sublime El Chiringuito beach club, chosen as one of the ten best restaurants in Spain or the much-loved La Escollera, great for local food.

The south side of the beach is where you will find the most nudity, you'll also find Chiringay beach bar, a big focal point for the daytime gay scene. Here there are no watersports to speak of, though you can hike through the nature reserve close by.

How to get there

You can get here by car though be aware that there is limited parking with a small car park and some roadside parking. There is also a bus (No 11) that leaves from Ibiza Town that also stops in Playa d'en Bossa. Get off at Las Salinas and then take the 20-minute walk that comes out at the south side of the beach.
