Locally known as Calo s’Alga or Racó of s’Alga, this quiet little Ibiza beach is adjacent to the Siesta beach resort and is a relaxed alternative to some of the busier beaches of nearby Santa Eulalia. On the fine white sand are beds and parasols available to rent, as well a tiny kiosk serving drinks all day. The unique rising seabed and bizarre rock formations also make some parts of the beach also very suitable for snorkeling.
Best time to go
The beach resorts fill up and the beach can become crowded at the height of summer – head over on a weekday when there are less resort-goers.
The beachside promenade on the way to Santa Eulalia makes for a very pleasant stroll, invoking a small-town, island feel – a perfect way to end your beach day is by sitting at one of the cafes on the way for some café con leche and people-watching.
LOCATION & DIRECTIONS
Location: Santa Eulalia’s east coast
How to get there: Take the road to Santa Eulalia in the direction of the urbanisation Siesta, and continue until you reach the second last street on the left, before the stone road to the right. Go down towards the beach, and when passing a curve to the left you will find in a small way to the right with a steep slope. If you walk from Santa Eulalia, cross the suspension bridge over the river and follow the coast around the corner for a few hundred metres.
From Ibiza Town: 20-minute drive. From San Antonio: 33-minute drive.
