For those travelers looking for a reprieve from the crowded beaches and clubs characteristic of Ibiza, Cala Saladeta – located on the island's west coast in Sant Antoni de Portmany – might be just their scene. This remote beach, hemmed in by rocky cliffs, can only be accessed by scrambling down the rock cliffs. But the turquoise waters, prime snorkeling conditions and secluded vibe are worth all the exertion, according to past visitors.

Recent travelers who visited this beach call it a paradise on earth and the best beach on Ibiza, even if it does require some cliff hiking to get there. Still, others suggest bringing your own drinks and snacks, since the one kiosk that services the area tends to get busy.

To reach Cala Saladeta, visitors can drive and park their cars at Cala Salada, a cove in Sant Antoni de Portmany. It's about a 30-minute drive Ibiza Town. From there, visitors can scramble over the rocks of Cala Salada to reach the more remote Cala Saladeta. You'll need to bring your own blanket, towels, chairs and umbrellas if you want to use them on the beach as there are no rentals available here. Visitors can access the beach, which does not charge an entrance fee, 24/7.

#1 Es Vedra

According to legend, Es Vedra – a small, rocky island located off the west coast of Ibiza – was once home to the sea nymphs and sirens who sought to entice Ulysses in Homer's "Odyssey." Others say that it's the tip of the lost city of Atlantis. Whatever the case, Es Vedra does seem to possess magical qualities, especially as the sun sets behind it – at least that's what travelers say after experiencing it.

Recent travelers said that the views of Es Vedra at sunset were worth all the traffic it took to reach the lookout point at the Cala d'Hort beach, calling it lovely – and even magical.
