Cala Bassa boasts some of the clearest, cleanest water you’ll ever see in Ibiza and the softest golden sand – it’s enough to make you think you’ve escaped the Med (not that you’d want to!) and made it to Thailand. Large rock formations on either side of the beach are a constant reminder however, of the rocky and rustic terrain of Ibiza and popular with dare devil rock jumpers, while plenty of trees around the beach provide shade for those sensitive to sun, perfect for picnics and family days out.
Best time to go
Cala Bassa is probably the busiest beach in the San Antonio area, so it’s best to either arrive early and make a day of it or if you’re not a fan of crowds, stick to May, June and September so you can enjoy the surroundings more.
There’s a designated, protected area for swimmers, keeping them safe from the water sports and boats in the bay, making Cala Bassa a great beach for families with teenagers.
On the west coast of the island, close to San Antonio.
