The jet set’s favourite beach for glamour - a dramatic pebbled shoreline surrounded by cliffs.

Over the past five years, Cala Jondal has risen to the top of the ranks when it comes to flashy Ibiza beaches, thanks to its famous beach bars, jet-set clientele and million dollar views. But it’s a beach of two halves to be sure – the left-hand side is made of huge, smooth grey pebbles, with some man-made sandy areas in the two famous restaurants that occupy the space. The other half is golden sand and has a much more rustic vibe (though you’ll still spot the rich and famous frolicking here too) with more laidback, casual restaurants and more of a family-friendly feel.

Eating and drinking

I recommend Yemanja.

Value for money

Price advice

Sunbed prices vary in each restaurant, however the main sandy area they are 6 euros for a bed and 4 euros for an umbrella.

Expert tips

When the sun goes down, the action doesn’t stop, with the bars and restaurants serving dinner and featuring DJs until the early hours.

There’s a kids playground in front of Tropicana for the little ones.

The beach boutiques at Yemanja and Blue Marlin are as good as any retail therapy you’d get on the high street and as expensive as designer stores to boot!

If you plan on spending the day at Ibiza’s most notorious glitzy beach club Blue Marlin, be sure to book in advance so you don’t miss out, especially in August.

If you’re not a fan of sand or prefer your feet not to touch the pebbles, use the walkways into the sea in front of Yemanja or Tropicana. The life indeed!

Be careful of jellyfish (in Spanish “medusas”) in July and August, as it can be quite a problem in this area.
