Las Salinas beach 

Featured beach of the week

Where and what?

At the most southern tip of the island next to the salt lakes and protected nature reserve of the same name is this long strip of pale sand and crystal clear waters with a backdrop of pine forests. Salinas beach is a place to see and be seen and where many go to warm up for a night out.

Why go?

You'll be mixing with the cool, the hip and the hippies - all attracted by its anything goes fun party vibe and the feeling of being slightly off the beaten track. Here people deck themselves out in cool beachwear and drape themselves over chairs in the beach clubs and bars like the Jockey Club and Sa Trinxa. You might spot the odd celeb poring over Vogue whilst sipping a strawberry daiquiri. There's a background beat of deep Balearic house broadcasting from each of the many bars along the sands or for more peace and quiet, head to the nudist part farther along the beach, baring all or not.

Things to do

You can sit back and relax and have your drinks and food delivered to you on the sand and watch the beautiful people stroll by. Prices for food and drink here are a little higher, so do take your own food and drink if you are on a budget. Going here is an experience though so at least try one of the great cocktails you can get here, if not the eats. There are plenty of water activities from splashing along on a pedalo, learning to dive or hiring a catamaran to see the coast from the sea. The Salinas Natural Park is great for long walks as is the beach itself from which you can walk to the watchtower and then return via the woods.

How to get there

You can get here by car or bus from Ibiza Town or Playa d'en Bossa. Follow the airport signs and then at the roundabout near the Hippodrome, take the turning to Salinas and follow the signs.
