Getting to know Ibiza’s beaches: Cala Xarraca

Cala Xarraca beach, located in the North of Ibiza, is ideal for travellers who don’t require too much in order to enjoy a nice day at the beach. You will find it between Portinatx and Benirràs beach and, although it is quite narrow, it is below a seaside cliff that opens up towards one of the island’s most beautiful bays due to its clear waters. If you are in search of Ibiza’s peaceful side, get into your rental car, take a look at your map and head towards the North.

Our tips

If you are heading there on a Sunday, make sure you go to the artisan market in Sant Joan, which is a lot more peaceful than the others on the island. There you will find hand made goods, organic fruit and vegetables, home made bread, honey made locally and the island’s famous hierbas ibicencas (Ibizan alcoholic drink made with herbs).
