The night life and the beach are the two hypnotic attractions that have attributed to Ibiza an almost mythical status for summer vacations, leaving other values, such as cultural ones, in an undeserved second place. A tourist reality that is easily understandable, leaving apart the night life, as the beautiful coves and beaches are universally appreciated when visited in situ. The crystal clear water, the welcoming spaces where the white sand or the cobbles invite us to swim, the intimate landscape where we take communion with nature... are enough reasons to compare the coast of this island with a description of paradise in the Balearics.
However, it is not just little coves along the coasts of Ibiza. Along the coast we can visit, as do thousands of tourists each season, long beaches of fine grain sand and extensive dune networks that characterize the landscape of some areas such as the beach at platja d'en Bossa, very near to the capital, Ibiza City.
Between Ibiza and Formentera there are a multitude of tiny islets, communities for plant and animal life endemic to the area. It is an isolated, but perfectly preserved ecosystem.
In the areas around the coasts of Ibiza, highlights include the Natural Reservation of ses Salines that also includes the coastal lagoons of l'estany del Peix, l'estany Pudent and the Bassa de s'Empalmador, all in Formentera.
In Ibiza are the sandy beaches at Illetes,
Trinxa, Cavallet and es Codolar. To the Southwest of the island
of Ibiza is the island of es Vedrà that, with a height
381 meters, is the most spectacular elevation in the Pitiüses.
It is located exactly opposite Cala d'Hort, a small pebble beach
from where a wonderful view can be enjoyed, especially when the
sun sets in the evening behind es Vedrà.
