One of the great advantages of an island is that it is surrounded by sea. By definition, this increases the possibility of finding a beach nearby. This is certainly the case with Ibiza which, with its tiny sister island of Formentera, boasts over a hundred beaches.
These come in all shapes and sizes and each has its own individual character. One of the most well known is also the longest – Playa d’en Bossa.
This beach is lined with beach clubs and hotels and serves as the chill-out area for the nearby Space nightclub. It is loud and lively and generally heaving with young tourists recovering from the previous night’s clubbing.
At the other end of the spectrum are the totally untouched beaches only accessible by boat, for those who resent sharing their beach with anyone else.
An added bonus thrown in by the size of Ibiza is the fact that it never takes much more than half an hour to reach any of the other beaches, if you get bored with the beach you’re at.
This is particularly handy when the wind is blowing, because if the wind is creating waves on one side of the island the other side will be calm and flat.
Your most difficult decision then is whether you feel like surfing or a more tranquilo spot of surfing…
