Ibiza’s beaches are as famous for their variety as for their plenitude. Continuing to delight millions of tourists every year, even after decades of island development, the unrivalled beauty of this little island’s coastline is still one of its main attractions. Whether you are searching for an unspoilt corner of a deserted cala to drift away a quiet and solitary afternoon, or dream of dancing barefoot in the sand with a mojito in one hand to the sounds of a world-famous DJ, there is an Ibiza beach for you as long as you know where to go.

In summer and even winter, most days involve hitting the beach in Ibiza. Sometimes to meet with friends for a leisurely lunch or social afternoon drinks, other times just to soak up those tanning and revitalising rays of sun. Seek out the mattress-topped sun loungers for a truly deep doze under an oversized parasol, and then summon a strapping, tanned waiter or waitress to deliver iced cocktails or beach snacks when desire demands. Or pack up a picnic and look for a road less travelled, where a shady spot under a tree becomes home for the day. Nothing beats scrambling across deserted boat huts to find your own Ibiza beach paradise. Treasure island indeed.

The White Ibiza Beach Guide contains all of our recommendations for blissful Ibiza beach days. Stunning pics give you an idea of what awaits, as well as insider tips from locals, such as what time of day or year is best for each Ibiza beach, and what there is to eat or do once you are there. From the rocky north with its soaring cliffs and rousing waves, to the fun-loving south with its house music vibes and incomparable sunset views, there is an Ibiza beach just right for your mood.
