‘For many, Cala Conta needs no introduction. For those who’ve not yet experienced her crystal shores, you’re in for a very special treat. Cala Conta has fabulous views of the little islands dotted near Ibiza’s coastline, beautiful turquoise waters and several different areas to explore, making it one of the best beaches on the island.

   There are two stretches of sand, one backed by a rocky coastline, the other by sand dunes. A third and smaller cove, used by naturists, is at the far end and reached by steps hewn into the rock. The shallow water is safe for children and clear as a swimming pool, whilst the more experienced swimmers can aim for the island offshore (though be aware of currents).

   In the high season the beach is very popular, so come either in the early morning or later in the afternoon. The area of sand is only small, but the waters so inviting you’ll spend most of your time there anyway. The many rocky outcrops also make Cala Conta an interesting place for snorkelling.

   The two main beaches are seperated by the most bohemian of Ibiza sunset cathedrals, beach restaurant Sunset Ashram, which has fabulous panoramic views from its exposed position, and a creatively designed framework which mimics the rocks on which it sits. In the evenings, Sunset Ashram hosts various DJs to play to the spectacular sunsets, but first and foremost it’s a place to relax.

   Further round on the right-hand side are 3 restaurants which are easily reached by foot, one of which is a great place for seafood.’
