The Ibiza Guide​

With Your Ibiza Boat Charter​​

Some suggestions for you

Active Ibiza can organise anything from a picnic lunch to a three-course meal. We will also make advanced bookings at Ibiza and Formentera’s best restaurants. Talk to us about all your catering needs.

The beach is officially a nudist beach and it is the centre of the beach, backed by sand dunes where most of the nudists are to be found.

At the North end of the beach are a couple of really great restaurants, El Chiringito and La Escollera, both known for attracting the rich and famous. The other end of the beach is home to a thriving gay scene focused around the famous Chiringay. Past the gay beach, the sand turns to rocks that extend out towards Formentera. You can see the iconic Es Cavallete tower originally used to keep watch over the waterway between Ibiza and Formentera.

Salinas gets its name from the 3000 year old salt flats which lay behind the beach and are still in use today. It is the southern-most beach on Ibiza and the closest point to the islands of Es Palmador and Formentera. The exquisite beach of Salinas is part of a nature reserve that spreads across to these two small islands.

Arriving at Salinas by boat you will see the long, white, sandy beach spreading for about a kilometer and a half with funky beach bars dotted along it. Sail your Ibiza charter boat to the turquoise water which extends about 500m out from the beach, throw the anchor into the clear water and jump in for a well deserved swim.

The prevailing summer winds blow cross-shore from the East (Levante) and the bay is usually very flat. With lots of space and no rocks or hazards in the water, Salinas is a very easy bay to navigate to by boat and a very popular stop off for our charters.

Drop the anchor of your Ibiza charter boat into the beautiful, clear, turquoise water of Cala Jondal, Ibiza’s trendiest beach. This beach is very popular amongst boat owners, due to the great shelter offered by the steep cliffs that line the bay and, of course, the world famous beach bars. The shoreline of the beach is made up of round, white pebbles that quickly turn to sand further out.

As if the fantastic cuisine and great cocktails weren’t enough, pumping music, audible even from the deck of your charter boat, is sure to entice you into one of these bars to dance the afternoon away.

This beach has something for everyone, including families and those looking for a more quiet and relaxed day out.

 

You can also leave your Ibiza boat trip entirely up to your skipper. All of our crew have an intimate knowledge of both Ibiza and Formentera. Sit back, grab a drink and let your skipper take you on a mystery tour of all of his favourite secret spots.

Once you have arrived at Es Torrent on your Ibiza boat charter, call the dinghy service out to ferry you into the beach without even having to get wet.

No day out on an Ibiza boat charter would be complete without anchoring off at some world class beaches, dropping in to groovy, stylish beach bars and restaurants for lunch and maybe one or two sun-downers!

The fabulous beach of Es Cavallete is a great stop off on the way to or from Formetera on the day of your Ibiza boat charter. Anchor in turquoise waters, but beware not to venture too close to the shore with larger boats or yachts as there are a series of perilous reefs which come about 150 metres out to sea. These rocks make it very hard to get in to the beach, even by small auxiliary zodiac or RIB. So, if you want to enjoy white sand and beach bars on this beach, you might to have to swim in.

Cala Conta is a truly spectacular Mediterranean beach with crystal clear waters and breathtaking views out towards to sea. The beach is famous for having one of Ibiza’s bet sunsets.

Cala Conta is a made up of multiple white sandy beaches, interspersed with natural rocky coves which provide shade from the harsh afternoon sun. There are several small, uninhabited islands that are visible from the shore and set the backdrop for the famous sunset.

TOP TIP:

The beach is very open to the prevailing summer Easterly winds (Levante), and is constantly battered with the wakes of all boats going to and from Formentera. This combo can make it a bumpy spot to anchor your charter boat. In fact, when the Levante blows hard, this is a popular spot for adrenaline junkies to practice the extreme sport of kitesurfing.
