A tour of the coast of Ibiza: Figueretas (I)

Summer is over. It is definite, however, who says one can not dream and start planning some of the destinations where you to enjoy the sun and relax for next year… On this occasion, we propose a tour of the coast of Ibiza, a perfect plan at any time of year, although it is between May and October when the island offers its true Mediterranean essence in all its glory.

This route along the coast of Ibiza will take us to amazing places, rugged coastlines, hidden coves, fine sandy beaches, small cliffs, areas in which the Mediterranean sea seems to melt into the island, also known as the “White Island”, for its light, its beautiful scenery and its free spirit.

We start from Playa d’en Bossa, from the Club Palm Beach hotel, next to the famous nightclub Space Ibiza and very close to the island’s airport. There, it is very easy to find a good accommodation, at a good price and well connected to the rest of the island. It is an ideal location for a holiday to Ibiza, the beach of Playa d’en Bossa offers all kinds of services and at the same time, in this particular area, a little more quietness than at other areas.

The route will take us through the nearest beaches to Playa d’en Bossa: Es Cavallet, Figueretas and Ses Salines, the second most famous beach in Ibiza. It is a calm shoreline and in the case of Figueretas (or Figueretes ) with a more urbanised landscape and family atmosphere, with gardens, children’s playgrounds and some of the most emblematic family hotels in Ibiza.

Figueretas is the beach of the neighbourhood with the same name, and it belongs to the city of Ibiza. It measures just over 100 meters and is surrounded by a seaside promenade where to walk under the shade of the many palm trees. The beach of Playa d’en Bossa is set on the right, and if you would continue walking to the left, one can go into the historic centre of Ibiza, which is called Dalt Vila.

It stands out for its night market where you can find all kinds of crafts, accessories and hippie style clothing. You may also find areas for recreational fishing, and even from Figueretas we can take the tourist boat that connects Ibiza with her “little sister”, Formentera.
