Ibiza is a holiday paradise not just for Spaniards, but also for the rest of Europe and the world. As you’d expect of a small island on the Mediterranean, it features an array of incredible beaches. But while these beaches are certainly beautiful, the crowds aren’t. Here, a list of the top 10 hidden beaches in Ibiza - so you can explore the beauty of the island that extends beyond the popular spots.
Trek all the way to Cala Blanca to enjoy a secluded, private beach escapade. The trek might be a bit difficult - but it pays off at the end, when you reach the coastal, rocky shores. Cala Blanca is truly the definition of a desolated beach, so take a picnic and relax all on your lonesome.
Probably the most well-known hidden gem on the island, Cala Llentrisca is a tiny, rocky cove, surrounded by pine forests. Its crystal clear waters and tranquil waters make it the perfect spot for some secluded and premium snorkelling, swimming and diving. It also has man-made charms, as the beach features an old wooden jetty and fishermen’s huts.
Head towards the more well-known Cala Salada, park your car there, and continue your adventure via foot until you reach Cala Saladeta. This hidden treasure works out to be Cala Salada’s little sister, so it’ll be considerably quieter as well as more protected from the wind. Surrounded by amazing hikes and cliffs, it’s the perfect spot for thrill-seekers wanting to try some cliff jumps onto the water. Cala Saladeta is also the perfect spot for snorkelling and a relaxed swim.
This one is for the true adventurers at heart, as the only way to reach it is by swimming 1.5 km! However, the quest will be well worth it. A mesmerising and quiet basin, calm waters and even water-filled grotto will be waiting. Not to mention that chances are you’ll have this beauty to enjoy all by yourself with views of Es Vedra.
Another gem that involves a bit of a trek but that, again, is worth the hike. Es Portitxol is a circular, green and turquoise-water filled little paradise, perfect for those looking for their own little private beach.
Located on the north end of the island, Cala Xarraca is perfect to swim or rent a kayak and explore the surrounding bays. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can cross the headland and go to Es Canaret, a deep, crystal-clear bay perfect to relax all by yourself.
Punta Galera is a little bit different. Don’t expect soft, fine sand - this beach features large rocks instead. But don’t let that dishearten you - Punta Galera’s charm comes from its spiritual vibe, cliff-jumping and priceless rainbow sunset views. Some people even take their yoga mats with them to enjoy an unforgettable outdoor session.
The longest and widest beach of fine white sand on the island’s west coast, Cala Tarida features rocky areas at the end of the beach and a strong a rock platform, perfect for an uninterrupted views of the ocean. This sheltered bay features clean and clear water with an incredible mix of turquoise, blue and emerald green colours. Keen for some extra exploring around the area? Through one of the tracks off Cala Terida, is possible to find another beach, Es Pujolets, known for its fishermen’s huts, white sand and bobbing boats.
Even though S’Estanyol is located only 4 km out of town, the beach is surprisingly quite quiet and peaceful. This cove is surrounded by rocky cliffs and lush, green foliage. No sand here - the water’s edge is made of hard pebbles, so you’ll have to make sure to go with the appropriate shoes to avoid injuries. Just like as most of Ibizas’ beaches, S’Estanyol features incredible and calm turquoise waters.
Near Port de Sant Miquel you’ll find a track - follow it to get to Caló des Moltons; a long and deep inlet filled with flat rocks and pebbles, boathouses, and tranquil waters, perfect to go for a swim. The beach has its “hidden gem” feel, however it has its own restaurant, Utopia - where you’ll be able to get great cocktails and sardine specials. You’ll also be able to rent stand-up paddle boards during summer.
Ibiza is a beautiful island and holiday spot. It is filled with mesmerising beaches, pine forests and rock cliffs - however, it can get quite crowded.

Whether is tranquil waters you’re after, a place where you can skinny-dip, a nice, beautiful trek or a place where you can practice your aquatic sport skills, Ibiza’s got it!
