Playa Cala Boix - Dark sand and a fresh breeze
This crescent-shaped beach is in the wide bay of Cala Boix, where the surrounding rocky hills covered in pine forests stretch right up to the water's edge. This part of the north-east of Ibiza is one of the least busy tourist destinations and even in the main season it does not really get crowded here.
Playa Cala Boix can be reached by car in 10 minutes from Sant Carles. There is a car park above the beach and a long set of steps leads down to the fine sandy beach, which has an unusually dark colour for Ibiza. Sun-loungers and parasols are only available in a small area of Playa Cala Boix. As the bay is quite open to the Mediterranean Sea, there is often a sea breeze which is refreshing, particularly in the higher temperatures. In the summer months two lifeguards look after safety at the beach.
Slightly elevated from the beach is a restaurant with a cosy wooden terrace from where you can enjoy a wonderful view of the bay and the anchored yachts. The menu offers paella, tapas and various meat dishes at typical local prices. Not far from the car park are a couple of other restaurants.
