Ibiza – The White Isle – is renowned for hedonism, spirituality and barefoot bohemia. It’s also home to some of the most idyllic beaches in the Mediterranean. An island paradise off the eastern coast of Spain, Ibiza is the third largest Balearic Island and an autonomous community of Spain.
The summer music scene draws thousands of visitors every year who come to experience the wild freedom that the destination offers. Yet, despite its reputation as being party-central, Ibiza is also home to some of the most exquisite beaches in the Mediterranean.
Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Pine Islands of Ibiza and nearby Formentera feature teal-coloured sea and white sandy shores. Visit the region and you have a wealth of sanding shores to relax, top up your tan and unwind on. However, there are a few hidden gems that you can’t afford to pass up the chance to visit. Here’s our list of the best hidden beaches the island paradise of Ibiza has to offer.
Cala Mastella, Santa Eulalia
Located in the north east area of Sant Carles de Peralta is the Cala Mastella. Much of the area is covered in smallholdings, farmland, quaint rustic houses and friendly locals. However, don’t be deterred, it’s here that you’ll find one of Ibiza’s most treasured secrets.
Cala Mastella is a beach that’s perfectly in-keeping with the local area. Peaceful and with inspiring scenery, the beach is only accessed by walking along a dirt road and through cane and pine forests.
Once you arrive, you’ll be treated to a rocky seabed and crystal-clear water. An excellent place for snorkelling over the patches of seagrass, Cala Mastella is one beach where couples and families alike will find much to admire. It’s not just the picturesque surroundings that have visitors hunting for the beach, it’s the food. Book at El Bigotes and be treated to some of the most exquisite seafood that you’re ever likely to taste, complete with a view of the harbour’s edge.
Cala Xarraca, Sant Joan de Labritja
At the north end, Cala Xarraca is always a hive of activity. But that’s okay. The base features small, neighbouring coves that, whilst probably won’t be deserted will certainly be much quieter and perfect for visitors who want nothing more than to relax and enjoy a quiet, secluded day by the sea.
The beach begins to look quite sparse at the point you reach Sa Cova Xarraca, just around the rocks, or about 100 meters along the length of the shore. Visit Cala Xarraca and you can rent a kayak to further explore the water or stretch your swimming legs and head towards S’Illot des Rencli.
Intrepid hikers can cross the headland and head towards Es Canaret. This exquisitely turquoise bay is surrounding by magnificently imposing houses. Reach Es Canaret and you’ll lose some of the seclusion Cala Xarraca offers but you don’t need to head this far; simply bask on the flat rocks on Cala Xarraca on the far left of the beach and you’ll feel perfectly secluded – and private.
Cala Xucla, Sant Joan de Labritja
This secluded beach is one that you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled to spot. Found when you head down a swooping coastal road and short, steep and rutted track that descends through pines and junipers to a circular, sandy cove, Cala Xucla is well-worth the adventure to get there.
Visit in the summer and you’ll discover an authentic chiringuito (a wooden shed with a hatch), complete with a dozen tables laid out in a shaded area. The perfect place to escape the heat of the summer sun, here you’ll find a cool area to relax with a tall glass of whatever your favourite drink is.
It’s surprising how little visitors to Ibiza know about Cala Xucla – especially when you consider the beach’s top-notch facilities. There’s also limited parking space, so if you’re driving and want to get a spot, make sure you get there early!
Punta de Ses Portes, Sant Josep
Anyone heading to Ibiza for some fun in the sun might not be too taken with having to spend a half – or a full day in a quarry. But remember, nothing ventured, nothing gained! The Punta de Ses Portes is half a millennium old and is opposite Formentera on the southern tip of Ibiza in the Ses Salines park.
The substantial rockery was hauled away to create the walls of the Dalt Vila and as a result, created shallow pools of cooling water which are complemented by spectacular, instantly Instagram-worthy surroundings.
Visit Punta de Ses and you’ll also find beach clubs, music and an abundance of sun loungers. Yet, despite its idiosyncratic surroundings and cool water, the beach remains strangely quiet, making it the perfect place to kick back and escape the hordes of revellers Ibiza is so-famous for.
Cala Tarida, Sant Josep
This west coast beach must be seen to be believed. Take a handful of steps down from the car park and you’ll feel like you’ve just set foot in an ocean paradise. Somewhat popular, though never crowded, Cala Tarida is famed for its fabulous rock formations.
Head to the end of the beach and you’ll discover a secure rock platform and uninterrupted sea view. Not only that, there’s also a second small sandy cove that’s reached by heading to the Can Yucas bar and heading along a small track. Is there anything else? Of course. A third beach, the beautiful Es Pujolets is just a stone’s throw away too. Here you’ll find white sand, the most mesmerising turquoise sea, fisherman’s huts and boats bobbing just off shore.
So, that’s is. Five of the best hidden beaches in Ibiza. The only question is, which do you want to visit?
One of the three major Balearic Islands, Ibiza is home to the charming Old Town, pine covered hills, a delightful Mediterranean climate and distinctively rugged coastline. Visit the island and you’ll discover golden sandy beaches and lively hotel resorts.
Still, often when visitors come to Ibiza, they may find choosing what’s best to do when the sun is at it’s highest a struggle.

What are the most notable points of interest?

Whist you’re here why not charter a boat? There’s plenty of seldom-explored landmarks to discover – most of which are best seen when riding the ocean waves.
See Ibiza Stonehenge
A contemporary installation that sits atop a rocky coastal shelf on a somewhat bare and desolate stretch of rock headland, Art and Space was commissioned by Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte and created by Australian artist Andrew Rogers.
Often referred to as Ibiza Stonehenge, this collection of 13 Basalt columns arranged in a semi-circular formation on the clifftops of Cala Llentia is where thousands of tourists make a point to visit each year.
Modern art installations are often left open to interpretation, but these columns have sparked frank debates over the years. Many believe that the columns are intended as a sundial, whereas others believe them to be reminiscent of a compass. Whatever the reason for construction, one thing’s for sure, they certainly are worth a visit.
Venture into the Past Driving Around Dalt Vila
With a name that literally means ‘High Town’, Dalt Vila is situated higher than half of Ibiza Town. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site, it’s here that you’ll find some stunning examples of Ibiza’s rich heritage and culture.
The area is home to distinctive architecture, art and several museums and is perfect for culture-vultures or those with a great affinity for the arts. Inside the fortified walls you’ll also find shops, bars and restaurants so taking your time and exploring the old-style architecture of Dalt Vila is essential.

Take in the View from the Atlantis Seaside Quarry
Even the most learned European historian may not know this, but Ibiza has its very own lost city of Atlantis. Now, before you begin scratching your head and wondering if that can be right, we’ve got the scoop for you.
Centuries ago Ibiza was quarried to provide watchtowers for the citadel of Ibiza. Today, all that remains of this activity is a labyrinth of caves, rocks, holes and sea pools. Christened as Atlantis by visitors who migrated to Ibiza in the 60’s, the name has endured over the years – as has this as a point of interest.
Originally named Sa Pedrera de Cala d’Hart, visiting the quarry may take you a little off the beaten track, but it’s worth the hike, if only for the coastal views. Arguably one of Ibiza’s best-kept secrets, a visit to the quarry is well-worth the effort.
These are some of the five points of interest that you really need to check out when visiting Ibiza. Visit each one by day and you won’t be disappointed!
