Boats docked in the turquoise waters of Cala Mestella.


Cala Mastella

Top choice in Ibiza

This little sandy cove is tucked into a deep inlet where pine trees reach down and almost kiss the emerald-green water, 9km northeast of Santa Eulària. Outside high season, you might have it entirely to yourself. A seasonal kiosk serves mojitos and bocadillos. Scramble around the rocks at the beach's northeastern end to reach renowned seafood restaurant El Bigotes.
