Cala Pada Beach

Cala Pada is one of the finest beaches on the east coast of Ibiza . A sheltered bay surrounded by pine trees and unspoilt ancient campo that has fortunately escaped the normal concrete ‘front line' development that afflicts most other once beautiful Mediterranean beaches.

The reason for this is that both the beach and the surrounding countryside have been in the ownership of a single foresighted family for over 200 years – and they've always liked it the way it is…

Nowadays you can find the beach from the main road between Santa Eulalia and Es Canar by turning right immediately after the Cala Pada hotel, just before the turning to the Es Canar hippy market and S'Argamassa, then straight on for about a kilometre to the beach. There is a car park by the tennis courts.

The other, rather lovely, alternative is to walk there along the coast from either Santa Eulalia or Es Canar. The journey takes about an hour if you're ambling along from either town, but normally longer if you have to stop to take in the spectacular views of the sea and cliffs.

A lazier experience is the beach hopping ferry which stops here from either of those two destinations, plus Ibiza town itself and even Formentera. No other ‘out of town' beach on the island can boast such spectacular ferry connections for reasons that will become apparent later….
