The south of Ibiza is popular for so many reasons….
The beaches and restaurants
First of all some of the best and most popular beaches are in the south – and also some of the best beach restaurants and bars.
Especially the south east coast boasts of a number of cosmopolitan lunch places ranging from rustic chic restaurants to high-end beach clubs.
The famous El Chiringuito at Es Cavallet beach is definitely not to miss. Cala Jondal’s Blue Marlin, which is the islands equivalent to the south of Frances fancy beach restaurants – although perhaps a bit more loud.
As the suns starts to go down, Experimental Beach at Cap D’es Falco is the place to be. Here you can watch the sun set behind Es Vedra in the distance. Or even better Sunset Ashram at Cala Comte beach – here you will probably get the best sunset on the island.
The restaurant and beach bar scene is active from late March through until October, reaching its peak in August, when reservations are essential at almost all venues. For those who prefer to stroll deserted beaches, the south east offers many walking routes ideal for the sunny winter months.
The south is home of the iconic and legendary island rock Es Vedra.
The silhouette of Es Vedra some claim as the source of Ibiza’s inexplicable energy. There many legends surrounding this amazing rock. It is claimed to be the third most magnetic point in the world, UFOs has been “seen” circling and others claim it is the ancient site of the lost city of Atlantis.
Es Vedra can be viewed from many points on the island, but perhaps best from the beach of Cala D’Hort, or the old pirate lookout tower Torre de Savinar.
In south you will also find Ibiza’s highest peak – Sa Talaiassa – which is 475 meters above sea level.
The phoenician ruins beside the beach of Sa Caleta shows the first evidence of colonisation on the island.
The airport is located in the south which makes it handy if you come and leave the island often.
Close to the airport there are the glistening salt flats of the world heritage–listed Parc Natural de Ses Salines. Salinas not only have some of the best stretch of sand with beach restaurants for all tastes and budgets, flamingos in October and November as they nest in the shallow flats.
