The White Island has been a family holiday destination for decades due to its safe beaches, as some of them are like natural pools. If you have already booked your rental car at the best price with Moto Luis and you are now interested in finding out which are the best beaches in Ibiza for children, make a note of the following selection and enjoy your Mediterranean holiday.

What are the best beaches in Ibiza for children?

Suitable beaches for children in the North of Ibiza

When you head out to explore the North of Ibiza in your rental car don’t be afraid of not finding a suitable swimming area: on this side of the island you will find plenty of options for kids to have fun in sea. We especially recommend Portinatx and Port de Sant Miquel beach due to their calm waters and available services (bars, restaurants…). Cala Benirràs is another good option but in certain areas you will encounter stones in the seabed; and you will love Sant Vicent beach if the wind from the East isn’t blowing.

Suitable beaches for children in the East of Ibiza

This side of the island has a strong family tourism history, so you will be sure to find good options. The most popular options for children include Cala Llenya and Cala Llonga beach as well as Santa Eulària des Riu’s urban beach, which is the only one in the Balearic Islands where smoking is banned. If you decide to head to Cala Nova you must be careful and check with the lifeguard as this beach often has currents that will drag you offshore.

Suitable beaches for children in the South of Ibiza

The best beach for families in the South of Ibiza is Ses Salines, as its waters are usually very calm and its seabed has a soft slope. Certain stretches have a rocky entrance but most areas are sandy. The other ideal beach for children is Cala d’Hort, which is one of Ibiza’s most beautiful beaches; however, it often gets jellyfish so we recommend that you ask the lifeguard about water status. Another way to find out what beaches have jellyfish is by using the App Jellyfish in Ibiza, a very handy tool regardless of whether you are going to the beach with children.

Suitable beaches for children in the West of Ibiza

On the West coast you will also find some of the best beaches in Ibiza for children. One of the most famous ones is Cala Bassa; it’s truly a natural pool with no currents or steep slopes. Other typical family-friendly beaches on the West coast of Ibiza are Cala Tarida, Port des Torrent and Cala Gració.
