LOCATION – SOUTHWEST
Recommended Beaches: Cala Jondal, Cala Conta, Cala Vadella, Cala Moli, Cala Bassa, Sa Caleta, Cala Tarida
The south-west of Ibiza, along with its jaw-dropping scenic backgrounds, is glamorous, brash and exclusive, and with more stylish beach club restaurants along its shores than possibly the rest of the Balearic islands put together, it is idolised by big-hitting jet setters and local residents alike.
To be experienced, at least once, is the sassy and shameless Blue Marlin beach club on Cala Jondal (with its sister restaurant Yemanja perched daintily on the sand beside. At the other end of the spectrum is the rapidly changing San Antonio (as the Brits Abroad pubs are slowly replaced by investors snapping up and converting hotels and restaurants left, right and beachfront centre).
The south-west manages to somehow successfully mix this side of its personality with the ultra-exclusive and uber-cool international residents tucked away in the hills of Es Cubells, and Puig Redo, and hidden behind the security barriers of the gated community Vista Alegre.
The focal point of the south-west and an absolute must-see is the mythical and magical volcanic outcrop Es Vedra, so seemingly close that you could almost touch it from the shingled shores of Cala d’Hort. There are many urban myths that surround it, such as it being the third most magnetic place on the planet after the North and South Poles, and there is no better place to contemplate these myths than from a table at Es Boldado, the superb fish restaurant built into the rocks across the bay.
The main town, and gateway to the south-west, is San Jose, a busy bustling town which hosts various rock and jazz festivals throughout the year and is also no more than a quarter of an hour away from the incredibly popular beaches such as Cala Vadella, Cala Tarida, Cala Bassa and Cala Conta (with one of the longest standing beach restaurants, Sunset Ashram perched above). San Jose and her surrounding areas are constantly in demand with property seekers due to the close proximity of all the beaches in the area, as well as the closeness to the airport and Ibiza Town. Consequently, the exclusive villas in the south-west are the most requested by high net worth holiday-goers in the summer months.
