Sa Caleta: Red Cliffs & Shallow Waters
Enter through the legendary twin red cliffs and exit in Sa Caleta aka a little version of paradise and arguably one of Ibiza’s best beaches. It’s emmulates a secluded feeling, due to the surrounding cliffs and its crecent moon type shape.


Due to the shallowness of the water, this beach is perfect for parents with young children as you don’t have to worry about them as much. Like all water in Ibiza, its transparency is perfect for snorkelling – which is always a fun activity! This beach is treasured amongst locals and is quite well known, so be advised that it can get full during peak season / weekends. There’s quite a lot of rocks, so you might have to look around a bit before finding a relitevely flat surface, but that’s all part of the experience.

Getting there:

The restaurant here is a favourite amongst those who frequent the beach, its nautical theme and traditional Spanish cuisine provides the perfect summery ambience. It’s also open in every season, which is a plus incase you’re visiting during the winter/spring. Fun fact: the beach is actually called Playa Es Bol Nou, but due to the popularity of the restaurant, the entire cove is commonly referred to as Sa Caleta as well.


Little beach shop, deck chairs, umbrellas, massage options and snorkelling!


Secret Ibiza Tip:

You’ll find a world heritage site on the beach; the remainders of the Phoenician civilization from 654 BCE. It’s free for public observation and there’s plenty of historical information available to learn about these ruins.

If you need any more convincing, have a look at the video below – how serene does the little cove look with the red cliffs surrounding? Let us know if you decide to go here through your own instagram post!
