This very long stretch of sandy coastline in the south is one of Ibiza's most famous beaches. It can be a little 'sceney' and very busy but it's also home to the Jockey Club (food, drinks, music) which is surprisingly unpretentious. There's also a great little shop at the back where we picked up a colourful Ibiza beach towel.
Cala Xarraca, Ibiza
As you approach Xarraca, which lies in the more peaceful, greener north of the island on the way to Portinatx, you'll spy the most beautiful turquoise water. There's a seafood restaurant here too, though we didn't settle as we were dying to check out nearby coveXuclar (two down in this post).
Cala Molí and Bagatelle Beach Club, Ibiza
This is a beach club with a pool and its own private stretch of beach. We spent the day here with friends and their two-year-old – pretty much everywhere we visited in Ibiza is very relaxed about children. While I would normally opt for a more rustic vibe, this certainly has an ease and comfortableness about it; my friend we were staying with is also pregnant and due at a similar time, so having shady daybeds and a pool in the immediate vicinity actually suited us very well.
