Less Crowded Beaches in Ibiza

Ibiza not only has large stretches of sand attracting hundreds of tourists, there are also charming secluded coves, far from the hustle and bustle of the most popular resorts. Take a look at the top 4 quiet calas on the island:

1. Atlantis Beach
Also known as Sa Pedrera, Atlantis is one of the most iconic settings in Ibiza thanks to its striking beauty and remarkable history full of mystery. Showcasing huge and almost geometrically perfect rocks, this hidden cove lies on the southwest of Ibiza and features incredible views across the mystical Es Vedrà. Visitors will also be amazed by its crystal-clear waters and abundance of native marine wildlife, making Atlantis a perfect base for diving. Over the last few centuries, sculptors and stone masons have left their mark by carving faces, dragons and other symbolic shapes on the cliffs, and it was from here that the stone was taken to construct the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Dalt Vila.
There are few facilities here, so bring all you might need while spending the day, including water and something comfortable to lie on.

2. Cala Moli
Situated on the west coast of the island, Cala Moli is a cove of pure unspoilt relaxation. The clear water here is beautiful, shallow and very inviting on a hot summer day. This is the place to come for a quiet day away from the crowds, and a great place to snorkel and see the abundance of sea life.
Facilities include a beach club

3. Cala Nova
Close to the resort of Es Canar you will find the beach of Cala Nova, a long curve of soft golden sand and shallow waters that is popular with surfers. Situated on its seafront is the bright and beautiful restaurant of Aiyanna Ibiza, which offers a modern take on beach dining with a healthy twist.
Facilities include sun beds & parasol hire, bars & restaurants in the area, watersports and parking.

4. Caló des Moltons
Located near Port de Sant Miquel, and only accessible on foot, these two secluded coves boast crystalline waters and are perfect for snorkelling. Caló des Moltons is a small pebbled cove mostly occupied by the unpretentious Chiringuito Utopia. The small stretch of sand of Es Pas de S'Illa des Bosc, connecting Caló des Moltons and the small islet of Bosc, has even calmer waters and is also perfect for snorkellers.
Facilities include beach bars & restaurants.
