Cala Llenya

Cala Llenya, with its golden sands, has a natural ambience that makes for a great relaxing holiday in Ibiza. Cala Llenya has no hotels or apartments near the beach, unlike many touristy beaches, just nature. The beach has sunbeds and a small beach bar, making it a perfect spot for relaxation.

While the beach is lovely here, it might not be ideal for older people or families with small children as it is hard to reach. From most of the tourist accommodations in this area, you need to take several stairs down to get to the beach and, of course, up again to get back to where you are staying, as the actual resort is much higher up than the beach.
