Hidden away in between the Ibiza beaches of Cala d’Hort and Cala Vadella, Cala Carbo beach is not normally overly busy.

Its name refers to a time when the area was thick with forest and therefore a useful source of charcoal for fuelling the local lime kilns.

The beach itself fans out from the head of a narrow cove, which provides the shelter that makes this such a lovely spot to swim.

Cala Carbo

It is about 70 metres long and 50 wide with a restaurant at either end and slopes gently into the sea, which has a fairly rocky (slippery) bottom.

Getting in and out of the sea can be easier from the front of the boathouses, rather than over the slippery pebbles just offshore beneath the waves.

As another alternative there’s a diving/sunbathing platform just out of sight over the rocks further to the right.

It is possible to see Es Vedra from here, but you’ll have to swim a fair way out. You’ll also notice that the sea takes on a new character outside the cove…

Tomorrow’s Ibiza beach is Cala Codolar
