What makes Cala Boix so special?
This beach is 120m long and 15m wide and it’s the only cove with black sand in Ibiza, which urges us to give you a useful tip you’ll be grateful for: don’t take your shoes off until you’re close to the water! It’s in a fold of the eastern coast of Ibiza, near Cala Mastella, and it’s after the village of Sant Carles.
You will like Cala Boix if...
- You've hired a car or a motorbike, as it’s the only way to get to this cove. It takes less than 15 minutes to get to this quiet spot from our 4-star hotel in Es Canar.
- If you like coves without buildings. Cala Boix only has a simple, typical beach bar. And next to the parking lot, two restaurants serving traditional food: La Noria and Cala Boix.
- You’re looking for a family atmosphere, as Cala Boix is popular among families and couples who want to spend a pleasant, quiet day on the beach. It has a life lifeguard and a very gentle slope into the sea, which makes it very safe for kids.
Cala Boix: our advice
It’s best to give it a miss if you’re travelling with reduced mobility persons as access to the beach is down a very steep ramp.
