Quite possibly one of the most iconic of all Ibiza beaches, Las Salinas is a long expanse of soft golden sand surrounded by a nature reserve including sand dunes, pine forests and spectacular salt flats. The sea is particularly salty here, which makes it incredibly easy to stay afloat when swimming. Dotted with infamous chiringuitos, DJs spin Balearic beats until the sun goes down and dancers parade along the shore promoting the island’s famous nightlife.
Best time to go
The traffic gets a little hectic from about 2pm onwards, so try to arrive early. August is notoriously overcrowded, however a little known fact is that April, May and October are all still perfect beach conditions at Salinas.
Walking past the beach bars until you come to an clearing where the rock formations have been carved into some amazing creations – walk further and you’ll spot the old pirate watchtower too.
