Safe, shallow, calm and clear waters are the focal point in the pretty bay of Talamanca, the closest beach in proximity to Ibiza town. The long wooden promenade that runs the length of the golden shore is peppered with restaurants and beach bars, making it a great place to set up for either a day on the beach or just a quick lunchtime snack.
Best time to go
The tranquility of Talamanca can’t be beaten in the hours before lunchtime and it’s easy to score a great spot on the sand or nab a sun bed.
An early morning jog (yes, really!) following the promenade all the way past the very end and onto the rocky headland of Sa Punta, where a quick dive in the sea is the perfect summer morning pick-me-up.
