Expert review of Cala Nova
Cala Nova is quite unique in terms of Ibiza beaches. Rather than the typical flat seabed protected from the wind by cliffs and mountainous surrounds, it’s quite exposed, meaning lots of waves breaking on the shore and great conditions for bodysurfing and on some days even actual surfing, though the island’s very underground surf community would probably prefer to keep that a secret! It reminds me of a little of some Australian beaches, though the water is much tamer.
Because it’s just north of the more tourist areas like Es Canar and Santa Eulalia, it’s also less hectic and easy to score a great spot on the dark golden sand, and the rich, red cliffs and pine forests surrounding it make you really feel as though you’ve escaped into the wilderness.
Eating and drinking
Take a break from the beach with lunch at one of two restaurants on the beach – I like the modern ZenSea perched on the hill. But the old, rustic beach shack is pretty good too.
Sunbeds and umbrellas will set you back 4 euros each.
