When visiting Ibiza, it can be easy to fall into the trap of seeing and experiencing all the well-known places, like the white lengthy sands of Playa d’en Bossa and Talamanca Bay. But, for those who prefer a little more adventure, exploring those unique spots, and venturing a little off the beaten track, then our Top Secluded Beaches and Hidden Gems in Ibiza recommendations might be of interest.
Our island is filled with some spectacular spots that are well- worth exploring! So, we’ve gone ahead below and uncovered some of our all-time-favourite secret beach locations with some ideal picnic solutions from us at Samos Deli, ready for you to discover the lesser-known side of the island.
Our Top Secluded Beaches and Hidden Gems in Ibiza
Punta Galera, near San Antonio offers a smooth rock cliff with several flat terraces overlooking the glistening blue sea. The rocky area is the perfect spot for those who love simplicity and nature without the distractions of beach clubs, restaurants and amenities. Parking is a slight distance away, but certainly worth the mini-trek and the beautiful display of naturally carved rocks. A highly recommended beach location, but be sure to take plenty of picnic supplies and beverages, as it’s just you and the great outdoors.
Cala Xarraca in the north of the island, is a small beach, well known crystal clear and deep waters, which are tremendous for snorkelling and diving enthusiasts. It is one of the more isolated beach spots, surrounded by beautiful pine forests, red cliffs and rocky pathways, giving a peaceful sense of undiscovered beauty.
If you are daring enough and steady on your feet, we would recommend walking across the cliff rocks to the secluded nudist spot over to the left. A little rocky, but the waters are quite simply divine, and you certainly won’t be disturbed by any of the summer crowds.
Pou des Lleo
Pou des Lleo is a tranquil, horseshoe-shaped bay with clear, shallow waters, perfect for snorkeling and swimming. Located just a short 10 minutes away from the village of San Carlos, completely untouched with a small collection of fishermen boats and idyllic natural surroundings.
If you’re looking for a remote and rustic spot, then Pou des Lleo is the perfect hidden beach location.
Sa Caleta Ibiza
The cove of Sa Caleta is a genuine piece of Ibizan heaven! As you walk along the wooden walkway encompassed by ruddy clay cliffs you’ll quite simply be amazed at the views which surround you. Sa Caleta is one tranquil and characteristic spot to allow your usual cares to float away. The perfect area for those who appreciate the nightlife of Playa d’en Bossa and Ibiza Town, but favor a small more rest and recovery amid the day.
Cala Mastella, Santa Eulalia
The little windy street leading down to the small rustic bay of Cala Mastella is a little steep, so riding a bicycle or walking can be quite difficult, especially in the summer heat. However, once reached, this small mildly-gravelled beach is calmly tucked away in utter peace and tranquility. Surrounded by tall pine-clad slopes and scattered finca houses, this small bay is like another world away from the tourism beaches of Santa Eulalia.
Cala Oliveira, Santa Eulalia
Cala Oliveira is located close by to the affluent urbanisation of Roca Llisa. The calm small cala is encompassed by cliff flats and forests with the cliff top villas peering over the water. The ocean bed is a little rocky, but the waters are calm and clear, so in the event that you’re searching for a little unique haven, absent from the hustle and haste of packed shorelines, this is the perfect spot for you.
