Cala San Vincente is all about the beach. It is one long golden sand beach with just a few hotels next to it. Because of this, it is very easy for anyone staying here to reach the beach, only separated from it by a promenade. The few hotels here and the fact that this is far away from the rest of Ibiza’s holiday resorts also ensure the beach here is often less busy and crowded than other beaches in Ibiza. So if you are a beach lover and don’t need much else, this destination in Ibiza could be perfect for you.

The beach’s location in the bay also ensures the water is mostly shallow and the waves are small. This is also why many people like to come here in summer with pleasure yachts and sailboats.

If you want relaxation and a budget holiday and don’t mind that some things in the resort might be closed, then your best months are May and October. Especially the last weeks of May and the first weeks of October. June, July, August and September are best for a beach holiday but also more expensive. July and August here are definetly the most crowded, so try to come in June or September for great beach weather without the crowds.
