Cala Comte is the most renowned, spectacular, and consequently, the most visited cove in Ibiza. It consists of a series of small coves located in the northeast of Ibiza, about a 15-minute drive from Sant Antoni.

Another of the main attractions of this cove are the various restaurants that can be found in the area. These offer a culinary variety, giving us the possibility to sit down for lunch or dinner once there.

Continuing with our list of the 5 best coves in Ibiza, we have Cala Bassa, an essential cove in your plans on the island.

With its crystal-clear turquoise waters, fine sand, and surrounded by a Mediterranean pine forest, the beauty of this cove will leave you speechless. For many people, this pine forest is a great attraction, as it provides refuge from the stifling summer heat.

However, being such a popular cove with easy access, it can get quite crowded with tourists during high season. Therefore, we recommend arriving early if you want to secure a spot on the sand.

If you enjoy watching a beautiful sunset, Cala Bassa is an excellent choice to see the sun set between its waters.

Cala d´Hort

Surrounded by cliffs adorned with the typical pines of the Balearic Islands, this beautiful cove with crystal-clear waters and white sand couldn’t be left out of our list.

Cala d’Hort belongs to the Natural Reserve of Es Vedrà, Es Vedranell, and the islets of Ponent, making it its main attraction. From its coast, you can see these impressive islets rising above the water. For this reason, this cove is the perfect place to witness what is arguably the best sunset in all of Ibiza.

This magical cove is ideal for relaxation, as it is very peaceful. In its surroundings, you will find some beach bars and fantastic restaurants where you can sit down to savor delicious dishes while enjoying the incredible views.

Es Bol Nou, or popularly known as Cala Sa Caleta, is a small cove with reddish clay soil, located in the south of Ibiza, near the airport.

With cliffs that protect it like a fortress, this cove offers one of the most beautiful landscapes on the island.

Being a bay, the water is usually very calm, making it the perfect place to find tranquility and enjoy the landscape in all its splendor. Furthermore, there you can find the restaurant of the same name, “Sa Calobra,” which offers live music during the summer.

Phoenician Settlement in Ibiza

A curious fact is that in this cove, you can find the ruins of the first Phoenician settlement in Ibiza, which dates back to 654 B.C., and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999. It is free for the public, and you can take the opportunity to learn a bit about it during your visit.

Cala Tarida

To conclude our list of the 5 best coves in Ibiza,
we have Cala Tarida, a small tourist town on the west coast of the island.  

One of its main attractions are the two islets,
which are connected to the coast by a strip of sand, dividing the beach into two sections.

Despite being a beautiful cove, many locals believe that
it has lost some of its charm due to the construction of hotels and chalets in the area. But it’s for this reason that Cala Tarida offers a wide range of services, and provides an excellent selection of beach bars, restaurants, hotels, and water sports.

With its 900 meters of white sand, it is the largest cove in this
area. Its waters are very calm and shallow, making it one of the top choices for families.
