Five secret beaches

Everyone flocks to Bora Bora and San Antonio to party, but why not try ditching the crowds and relaxing in peace on one of Ibiza’s lesser-known beaches off the beaten track

Here at Title we love nothing more than a jolly good party, and Ibiza holds some of the best in the world. But we also love to relax and get away from it all too. Beautiful and underrated, these secret beaches offer a chance to relax in paradise, away from the hustle and bustle of the mad Ibiza party atmosphere.

1. Cala Llentrisca1-Lentrisca
An old timber jetty sits in the middle of this peaceful, almost deserted strip of coast. The crescent shaped beach offers crystal blue water and tranquillity that couldn’t be further from the madness of Bora Bora. Although it’s a pretty isolated area, its natural beauty makes it well worth the journey.

Where: From Sant Josep, follow the road south to Es Cubells. From here, wind your way down the road to the coast whilst enjoying the lush views. A footpath will take you to the beach from there.

Before you leave: Stop off for a drink at Es Cubells, a small village nestled among lemon, orange and olive groves. Bar Llumbi is a family owned bar and restaurant that offers unspoilt views of the coast as well as a traditional Spanish menu.

2-Olivera22. Cala Olivera
The calm, clear waters of this untouched cove mean you’ll just have to dive in and swim. Make a day of it and enjoy the beautiful views out to sea away from the noisy crowds; however you may be sharing this hidden gem with locals or even the occasional naturist who stops by to top up their tan.

Where: On the East coast of Ibiza, past the gated community of Roca Llisa.

Before you leave: There isn’t much in the way of bars and restaurants nearby, so bring a little picnic.

3. Cala Salada3-Salada
This secluded beach is perfect for snorkelling and cliff jumping (if you’re brave enough). For the explorers amongst you, hike to Ses Fontanelles to catch a glimpse of the famous Bronze Age cave drawings.

Where: A short drive from San Antonio.

Before you leave: Visit one of the local beach shacks for a fresh lime mojito.  Several refreshments later, be a daredevil and head round to Salada’s secluded sister beach for a spot of skinny dipping.

4-Es-Xarcu4. Es Xarcu
Another beach favoured by locals. Feel at one with nature at this beach as you breathe in the scent of the pine trees and admire the scenery. Be sure to wear flip flops as the sand is quite rocky, although the seabed itself is cushiony soft.

Situated on the south coast, between Es Torrent and Cala Jondal.

Before you leave: Take a short detour to Es Xarco (one bay away) for a delicious seafood lunch and a bottle of wine.

5. Benirras Beach5-Benirras2
Okay so this isn’t exactly a ‘secret’ beach (it can get quite busy during peak season) but it’s well worth checking out. This small but picturesque bay boasts crystal clear water perfect for swimming and snorkelling.

Where: On the island’s north-west coast, just past San Miguel.

Before you leave: Enjoy the gorgeous Ibiza sunset, which is often accompanied by drummers who arrive on the beach to ‘drum down the sunset’.
