Cala Jondal

South Ibiza

Between two lofty promontories, this exposed, stony south-coast beach doesn't look especially attractive on first glance, but it was one of the first to cash in on the booming beach-club market, drawing celebs, yachties and the odd superstar DJ. Most make for the uberfancy Blue Marlin beach club, but there are a couple of less glitzy, more affordable options.
