Boats in the Cala Llonga bay

Cala Llonga beach is located in one of the longest bays on the island of Ibiza. That means there are almost no waves here most days, and the water is very still. Even on windy days when some other places on the islands will have huge waves, the sea here stays relatively calm. This, combined with a lovely golden sandy beach, makes it ideal for families with young children who love the sea and beach. You also have restaurants, supermarkets and bars right next to the beach. As well as a playground for the little ones.
