Location: 10 minutes drive from Playa d’en Bossa or Ibiza Town
Facilities: Loungers, parasols, showers, restaurants, bars, beach boutique
Activities: Volleyball net, official nudist beach
Size: 1.1 kilometres long, 30-40 metres wide
Getting there: Reached by car, bicycle (be careful of the traffic!), or bus from Ibiza Town (10 km) or Playa d’en Bossa (6 km). Parking at the north end can be a nightmare as the parking place is small and can be inadequate in high summer. In low season it’s easier. The south end is best reached from the car park at Las Salinas beach; it’s a 20-minute stroll through shady pine woods.
Es Cavallet is a fabulously picturesque beach due to its white sand and rolling waves. With views of both Ibiza Town and Formentera on a clear day, Es Cavallet’s location is a boon, with the scenic drive across the salt flats also part of the experience.
It’s an official nudist beach and the main nudist area is in the middle section of the beach backed by sand dunes. The north end of Es Cavellet, close to the car park, is popular with celebrities who usually frequent the two restaurants there. There’s an active gay scene at the south end of this large beach which is centred around a fab beach restaurant.
Wild and natural, backed by sand dunes and a little green belt of shade and hills, Es Cavallet feels private. Best viewed when the east wind blows creating large waves that the wind and kite surfers love, whilst the rolling dunes and very broad sandy beach are perfect for a beach stroll in the offseason. In the summer months with club music and cocktails, a relaxed party feeling continues here the whole day long.
