Look for solitude at…

This cove in the northern part of the island has two small neighbouring coves that are reachable in just a few minutes from Cala Xarraca itself. If you don’t mind swimming, choose to move toward the right. If, on the other hand, you want to get there walking, cross the beach. After a short stroll, you’ll discover another beach on which to spread your towel. We’re not revealing an undiscovered secret, but this is one of the quietest places in Ibiza during this month.
We recommend this small cove in the southwest not only for swimming but also because of the nearby esplanade, which contains the curious sculpture called Time and Space, created by artist Andrew Rogers at the request of Guy Laliberté, founder of Cirque du Soleil. This unique work is formed by a dozen basalt monoliths placed in a circle around one of them that is higher. Some metres farther on, you will find another work by an unknown artist that represents two facing doors that frame the islet of Es Vedrà. A fantastic place for saying goodbye to the day…
Very close to the Es Bol Nou cove, on Ibiza’s southern coast, is this small natural port flanked by fishermen’s shacks. In the lively August days it’s a good place to get away from the crowds, throw down your towel and relax, as long as you don’t mind swimming with slippers. Don’t forget that these shacks have owners, and if they show up you’ll have to find another ramp to lie on.
