The drive to the beach leads you past the Ses Salines Nature Reserve, where salt has been mined for thousands of years. The fine white-sand beach is hemmed by dunes and coastal pines. In summer, the beach becomes the desired destination for sun-seekers and hippies alike: Baywatch babes meet yogis practising in the nude, and the surfers displaying their brand-new board shorts with Ibiza’s rowdy party scene. On the windless days, the sea shines like the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. When the southern wind blows, the gentle waves are ideal for stand up paddle boarding and bodysurfing.
