Cala d’Hort

It is one of the best beaches on the island, what makes it unique is the impressive islet that faces the sea, Es Vedrá. Although there is a separation with the beach of a few hundred meters, its 385 meters don’t go unnoticed being present anywhere you look at the beach.

 

As in other coves of the island, it has wonderful sunsets, it is highly recommended to visit it at that time.

Atlantis

It is also known as La Pedrera d’en Savinar, a very peculiar place and little known by tourists. It is an old sandstone quarry that was used in the past as natural cement for buildings.

 

Due to the mysticism that has always surrounded it, it became a place of worship for the hippies, who gave this place its name. Currently, we can find small altars, paintings of Hindu gods and figures carved on the walls. It is a place of difficult access and forms part of the Natural Reserve of Cala d’Hort.

Benirrás

One of the most essential beaches on the island and where you can experience the true hippie essence. Every Sunday of July and August dozens of people gather to dismiss the sun to the rhythm of drums offering a show that is worth seeing.

Dalt Vila

It is the old town of Ibiza and is located at the highest point of the city. It is surrounded by an imposing wall that has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999.

The construction of this walled city dates back to the sixteenth century, with countless alleys and shops that make it the cultural, commercial and government centre of the island. A very recommendable place to walk quietly during the night.

Na Coloms

Known as Ullal de na Coloms or Avenc de na Coloms, but lately it is also known by divers as La cueva de la luz. It is a cave that communicates with the sea, which makes it an incredible underwater gallery where you can dive and meet marine species.

It is one of the most hidden and inaccessible corners of the island, since to access it you must make a walk of almost two hours. An essential place for adventure lovers.

Ses Balandres

It is one of the most spectacular coves on the island, located near the village of Santa Inés. The path to reach it is an incredible experience and can be enjoyed twice as well if it is combined with accommodation with spa, not far away you can find 5 star hotels in Ibiza for families with children, since they can also enjoy it.
