This sweet little cove is surrounded by cliffs and is one of Ibiza’s tiniest beaches. Because Cala Mastella is relatively untouched and unspoiled, it retains a very special bohemian-like vibe. The base of the sea is a bed of stones, meaning it’s advisable to purchase some waterproof rock shoes to make your entry into the water easier – the beauty of these stones however, means the calm waters remain completely clear, making Cala Mastella the perfect place to snorkel.
Best time to go
Space (and parking) is very limited so arriving early is essential… avoid the lunch hour rush if you can, as there are more people than spaces in the restaurant, famous for turning away the King of Spain.
Getting to Cala Mastella before anyone else arrives! Sure, you’ve got to get up early, but being alone on this tiny beach is exhilarating… plus you can nab the best spot!
