Don’t you just love Telefonica – 24 hours without ADSL – anyway here’s the next instalment in our ibiza beaches series – Cala Llonga:

By the sea in between Ibiza town and Santa Eulalia, this pretty little bay is home to a relatively new family holiday resort.

It used to be remote and difficult to get to, except by boat, which probably explains why it was a favoured haunt of smugglers for the 500 years prior to the arrival of the property developers.

Nowadays it offers all of the facilities required by its many tourist visitors, including the ability to be a sheltered spot on a windy Spring day and to offer a cool breeze on hot summer days, when the wind blows from the south and all you want to do is immerse yourself in that lovely blue sea?

The sandy beach is well maintained and even toddlers’ tiny feet will have no trouble making their way into the shallow waters of this sheltered bay.

Cala Llonga is at its busiest in August, but this will not stand in the way of a good time. The people who frequent this beach are usually guests at one of the nearby hotels, but if you happen to be travelling around the island and feel like taking a dip, we can definitely recommend stopping off at this bay. Jordi Juan’s beach kiosk (right beside the car park) is a good place to stop for a snack or a drink. “What’s more, we serve the best sangria in town,” the owner adds.

A small hippy market takes place every Thursday in Cala Llonga, filling the main street with stalls selling all sorts of produce.

How to get there: Take the road from Jesus towards Santa Eulalia, then take a right towards Cala Llonga a few kilometres after you pass the Roca Llisa golf course.
Alternatively, drive in from Santa Eulalia by taking the road towards Jesus and then turning left after about five kilometres down the well signposted road to the bay.

Tomorrow is Cala Martina…
