Porroig is an area not frequented by tourists and therefore provides a discreet and peaceful ambience for escaping the daily grind. Homes in this area are contemporary designs, integrating traditional elements of island architecture. You’ll still see dry stone walls and whitewashing, but more often than not these keynotes are incorporated into high-end, luxurious, modern villas. Close to many of Ibiza’s finest beach clubs and restaurants, Porroig is an excellent choice for families and couples seeking a quiet holiday or second home with easy access to all the action.
The iconic seafront restaurant Es Torrent is right on the beach it is named for and serves up Ibiza’s very best seafood, often caught that very morning. Sitting here under thatched umbrellas with sand at your feet, watching Zodiacs zipping in and out of the cove as they ferry in diners from their luxury yachts for lunch, is simply sublime. Just around the bay is Es Xarcu, another seaside restaurant that buzzes at lunchtime with diners sharing authentic seafood paellas and other delicious traditional dishes.
Cala Jondal is where some of Ibiza’s most well-known beach clubs reside. Blue Marlin has a global reputation as a one-stop-shop for fun beach days that inevitably lead into party-fuelled nights. Up in the hills surrounding the area, Cova Santa is a naturally formed cave that makes up part of the restaurant and club of the same name. The cave contains an impressive array of stalagmites and stalactites and is also the location of some of Ibiza’s best open air parties.
The tiny cove of Porroig is a local’s secret that few tourists manage to get to. Surrounded by fishermen’s huts that make for a great spot to lay out a towel, this private cove is graced by crystal clear waters. There isn’t a chiringuito or any sunbeds – this is more of a rustic beach experience. The even tinier Es Cucó beach is only 100 metres long and the path down is a little tricky, but once there you find a completely private slice of the Med just for you. Chic beach clubs crown the white sands of Cala Jondal and with the bay filled with super yachts, this beach is a picture postcard of Ibiza glam.
