With turquoise waters, bright blue skies and gorgeous sunshine, there’s no better way to discover the beautiful beaches of Ibiza and Formentera than on your very own chartered yacht.
When you opt for a private yacht charter from Ibiza, all of the region’s beautiful beaches will be within touching distance, and you can choose the ones you’d love for the crew to take you to. In this article, we give you a rundown of Ibiza and Formentera’s best beaches.
Formentera’s best beaches to discover by yacht
Known as ‘Ibiza’s sister island’, Formentera is the smallest of the Balearic Islands. Its size and location make it perfect to explore if you’re looking to hire a luxury yacht to charter around Ibiza, as the island hangs off Ibiza’s southern edge. If you’re considering making this excursion, here are the top beaches to head to:
This narrow strip of sand is the picture perfect location to watch the sun go down. The beach here is also gorgeous, and it’s often compared to popular Caribbean beaches due to the white sands and the pale blue waters.
The beach has been voted as the most beautiful in Spain several times, and it forms part of an ecosystem of dunes on the Trucador Peninsula. It’s a Mediterranean idyll just waiting to be explored, and a private yacht charter to Formentera allows you to do just that.
The harbour of Es Caló is surrounded by boat houses and two sandy beaches. Slightly further along the coastline, you will also find several rocky inlets where you can locate your own private spot for the day.
Due to the rocky outcrops, Es Caló is one of Formentera’s best snorkelling spots. However, if you’d rather relax, then there are restaurants here, which all provide picture perfect views of the harbour and out to sea.
Cala Saona may only be 140 metres long, but it’s one of the most beautiful spots on the island. The views from the beach are simply stunning, particularly if you head to the nearby cliffs of Punta Rasa, where you can see for mile after mile.
The beach itself is tranquil and the cove is packed with characteristic beauty, offering gorgeous views out towards the sunset. Plus, because the beach is very quiet here, it allows you to get away from the tourist crowds.

Beauty meets fashion at Cala Jondal. Surrounded by pine trees and jagged cliffs, the beach is incredibly popular with boat owners.
One of the most up-market beaches on Ibiza, Cala Jondal is surrounded by a fabulous selection of restaurants and beautiful homes. The beach itself is made of white pebbles and the sea can be accessed via little bridges and ramps. The seabed also becomes sandy after only a few metres, so bathing here is a pure delight. If you’re considering a private yacht charter in Ibiza, then make sure you ask the crew to take you here.
Las Salinas (Ses Salines)
Known as the coolest beach on Ibiza, Las Salinas is ever-popular with anyone chartering a yacht. The southern-most tip of the island, Las Salinas is named after the salt lakes that surround it.
The beach itself is long and crescent-shaped. It’s packed with pale sand and is bordered by pine woods. Small catamarans are often found at the southern end of the beach but, by the Pirate Tower, you’ll find gourmet restaurants playing dance and Balearic music. Many of these bars will also bring cocktails to you out on the beach.
Although these are widely considered to be the best beaches for anyone chartering a yacht in Ibiza and Formentera to visit, other beautiful beaches are also available for exploration…
