Our recommendations for Cala Bassa

Cala Bassa is undoubtedly one of the most famous beaches in Ibiza due to its natural beauty. Although it has always been very popular with the locals, who used to come here with their families, it is now even more bustling and has become one of Ibiza’s favourite coves for visitors of all ages. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your day at the beach.
– From May to October, you will always find a large number of bathers at this beautiful beach with crystal-clear waters. But if you go in the early hours of the morning or between 2 and 5 in the afternoon, you will be able to enjoy its beauty with a little less hustle and bustle.
– If you want to eat on the beach, you should know that you can choose between the exclusive Cala Bassa Beach Club, with its tables spread out under the pines and junipers, and the Cala Bassa beach bar, the most suitable option for when you just fancy a pizza or a hamburger. Another nearby option is La Cueva restaurant, less than five minutes’ walk away.

– If you like to explore the surroundings of the beaches on foot or by bike, get to the beach early and follow the tarmac track that starts next to the car park (cycling option) or follow the coastline (hiking) until you reach Cala Conta. A very pleasant walk that will reveal one of the most unspoilt stretches of the Ibizan coastline.

– Don’t bother trying to park along the roadside: there is little space and you risk damaging your vehicle or getting a fine. Instead, head straight for the large car park at the Cala Bassa Beach Club. Access costs 5 € and it includes a drink (water, soft drink or beer).
