The white sandy beaches of Comte Bay are an amazing experience and have a place in the rankings of the best beaches in the world. They can be accessed via natural rock stairs, and the turquoise blue water is one of the cleanest and most translucent on the island, inviting us for a nice swim. Comte Beaches consist of several small coves, which we recommend you discover and enjoy. There are very few shaded areas, so we recommend bringing some sort of protection. From here you can also enjoy the best sunsets in Ibiza and in the whole Mediterranean.
Ibiza’s artistic tradition dates back to the 1960s, when craftsmen, painters and designers settled on the island to experience its unique atmosphere, light, and freewheeling lifestyle. All this is reflected in this market, where you will find about 200 stalls where you can buy handmade clothing, jewelry, footwear or ceramics while enjoying a snack or a nice dinner. It is open every Saturday all year round, and it’s definitely one of the hottest shopping locations in Ibiza.
Las Salinas Beach (Platja Ses Salines) is one of the island’s most famous and liveliest beaches. It is named after the small salt pans in the south of Ibiza, where it is located. It is accessed from wooden walkways, which facilitate access and help protect the dunes and vegetation in the area, especially consisting of junipers. The long sandy curve that forms the beach is surrounded by large pine trees and sand dunes. The sand is white and fine and the water is incredibly clear and clean. Along the beach there are some beach bars with drinks and meals.
Famous for its spectacular sunsets and hippie drumming parties on Sundays, this beach is located on the northeast of the island. Surrounded by nature, it offers absolutely spectacular sunsets. There are services such as hammock and umbrella rentals, and it has a beach bar and several restaurants with many different food options. Late in the afternoon, the left end of the beach becomes a makeshift stage for music and dance. Many people say this is one of the few events that retain the hippie spirit that made Ibiza famous in the 1970s.
Also known as Dalt Vila, this fort dates back to the 16th century and was built by King Felipe II to protect the town from Ottoman and pirate attacks. It was listed as a World Heritage Site in 1999. Within its walls you will find the Ibiza Town Hall, the Archaeological Museum (which showcases the history of the island), the lookout, and several churches – including Santo Domingo Church. You can also enjoy a nice cocktail in the lively port area, as well as a day of shopping and a nice dinner in one of its many traditional restaurants.
