About the surrounding area
To the south you have Ibiza main town with all its attendant facilities including the beautiful old town of Dalt Vila visible from anywhere in Talamanca due to its location atop the hill overlooking the town. Ibiza town is also home to many bars, restaurants, museums, shops and galleries; a holiday spent in Talamanca could feature many day trips into Ibiza town with no fear of boredom. To the west of Talamanca is an uninviting urban sprawl of industrial estates, motorways, roundabouts and garages, unless you’re driving in or out of the area avoid this section as it holds no aesthetic appeal or tourism draws. To the northeast of Talamanca the area becomes much more remote and undeveloped, the further you walk along Talamanca’s coastline the more rugged it becomes, culminating ultimately in some jaw-dropping cliffs. Visitors can continue to hike along the coast to Cala S’Estantyol one of Ibiza's ‘hidden’ beaches. Via road one can reach the town of Jesus directly to the north of Talamanca, another town that was once completely separate but has now become attached to the overspill of Ibiza town.
There is no real town to Talamanca, what was probably once a defined and separate place to Ibiza town has been developed to the point where the border between the two is invisible. Now what is defined as ‘Talamanca’ is the beach resort area directly bordering Talamanca beach and possibly part of the marina promenade back to Ibiza town. The town is best known for its beautiful beach.
Along the beach you have endless restaurants to choose from each featuring fresh seafood, authentic sangria and seats with your toes in the sand. Bar Flotante is one of the best known and the huge luxury Harbour club is hard to ignore. The further north you walk the quieter the places get and when you run out of sand you’ll find some lovely options that are often never found by beach goers. Walking back to Ibiza town you have an endless array of restaurants along the marina promenade, research ahead of time or just walk until one take your fancy.

The beach itself and all the sights available in nearby Ibiza town are Talamanca’s main draws but it’s also well worth hiking the coastline to the north of the beach for the dramatic scenery, rugged coastline and beautiful remote landscape, surprising this close to busy Ibiza Town.
Things to Do nearby
The beach is bursting with watersports opportunities and rental shacks offering kayaks, paddleboards and boats. Ticket stands also abound offering you the chance to book onto any number of boat trips, ferries and guided tours going all over the island. The road from the beach to the main town is lined with car and moped rental outlets and again stalls selling trips, tours and disco tickets.
Book Things To Do
Talamanca is best known for its beach; a 2km stretch of beautifully soft white sand popular with families due to its easy access, and soft gentle sea gradient. The beach has every amenity you can think of including excellent disabled facilities. Bars and restaurants line the sand and the view back towards Ibiza town with its marina and Old Town on top of the hill make for a beautiful sight.
