104 Ibiza Beaches – Cala Bassa

Cala BassaIs there anything better than taking a boat out to a beautiful beach on a hot summer’s day? During the summer season, there is a regular boat service from the harbour in San Antonio to Cala Bassa, one of the prettiest bays on the west coast. “Oh no, there’s bound to be hordes of British clubbers out there,” we hear some of you older holidaymakers sigh. “Great, finally somewhere we can have some fun,” the younger generation cheers. We believe it’s a good thing that tastes vary, because so do Ibiza’s bays and beaches.

After a crossing that lasts just half an hour accompanied by a bracing sea breeze, you land in a bay surrounded by pine trees. The sandy beach is interspersed with craggy cliffs, a sea of colourful beach umbrellas glows in the sun and pedalos bob around in the shallows. It’s true that Cala Bassa is never going to win a “peace and quiet” award, but this won’t put the visitors off. After all, not everyone wants to spend their time counting fluffy clouds in the sky or achieve a state of blissful nirvana when they are at the beach.

Cala Bassa is a big place and if you’ve remembered to pack your snorkel, you’re in for a great time.

There are restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and budgets: there’s even a self-service bistro. If you’re not into the “McDonalds scene”, you can opt for one of the other restaurants. Nobody’s forcing you to do without your meal of crisp salad or fresh fish served under the shady pine trees and the service is great, too.

You don’t have to take the boat or a bus from San Antonio to reach Cala Bassa. If you prefer to travel by car, take the road from San Antonio to San Jose, turn right towards Cala Bassa/Cala Comte and then follow the signposts. A free car park is provided.
