If you’re in search of a hidden paradise to relax and rejuvenate, this secret beach is a must-visit during your time in Ibiza. How to get there? Just find your way 😉 (two options available, one long amazing walk and the “short” one).

Es Portixol

Es Portixol is a beautiful and relatively secluded beach in Ibiza, known for its natural beauty and unspoiled surroundings. This hidden place offers a serene and peaceful escape. The beach is characterized by its clear blue waters and picturesque coastline, making it an ideal spot for swimming and sunbathing. The beach is located in the Sant Joan de Labritja area and is often described as a natural wonder that remains largely untouched. Its isolated location adds to its charm, making it a favorite among those who prefer a more private and peaceful beach setting. Es Portixol is also a popular spot for photography, thanks to its stunning natural beauty and unique landscape. Whether you’re a professional photographer or simply enjoy taking photos, Es Portixol offers plenty of opportunities to capture the beauty of Ibiza’s coastline. To get there you have a 30/40 minutes walk through the wild pine trees and rocks coastline, typical of the North of the island of Ibiza. But every minutes spent to get there worth the visit and the view. You just have to pray to not find a jelly fish invasion in the sea…otherwise have a bath there will be complicated.

These routes are perfect also for winter time, as the temperature is not so high and you can still enjoy the place.
