We gave you 5 good reasons to fall in love with Ibiza but we did not tell you that there is a Ibiza completely different from what we are used to hearing or imagining. There is an unusual Ibiza, an unknown Ibiza, the one where families and seniors stay, an area where the beaches are equipped for children, are rather quiet, and it is also easier to find parking… would you believe it ? Well we are talking about the beaches of Ibiza in the north-east, we are talking aboutan unusual Ibiza.When we decided to leave for Ibiza we were determined to look for something different from the island, an unusual itinerary that could be an inspiration to those who hear so much about Ibiza but believe that it is not for his. In addition we asked on Instagram to choose between an itinerary of Movida and one of Relax and the latter had stravinto… We couldn’t back out.
Our apartment is in Cala Llonga, a wonderful cove around which has developed a tourism very different from that that characterizes the south of the island: there are many elderly German and English and many families with children, many even Italian. The beach is quite equipped, the sand golden and thin and the sea not too deep for meters and always rather quiet, despite the wind often blows. Small and large boats moored in the bay enjoy the sun and crystal clear waters.
Starting from Cala Llonga gives us the opportunity to move easily to the north-east to discover new and beautifulbeaches of this unusual Ibiza, more unknown and wild, the quiet and paradise that so much love families.
On the first day we move immediately towards Cala Llyena about 15 minutes from Cala Llonga. Cala Llyena is one of those coves of Ibiza hidden by a lush and wild vegetation, the same that runs along the hairpin bends and bends of the north roads perfectly paved. The sand is fine, golden and caressed by this sea that in Ibiza, is never of a single color but of many shades ranging from deep blue to aquamarine. In the distance you can see the fishermen’s houses, with the typical slides for the boats, constructions that we will often see here on the most crowded and modernly equipped beaches.This sea is so beautiful is hypnotic that not even the big new rain overflows can take our attention away from it. A few drops of rain do not frighten us, we do not run to the shelter, we remain sitting on the sand and our positivity is rewarded: the sun returns to shine. We soon learn that this happens in Ibiza often: it rains a few minutes and then the scorching sun comes back to shine, it rains on one side while on the other the sky is completely clear.. unusual Ibiza also for this. There are many people: even very small children, some group of boys, topless who parade on the shore and some naked whole. There are no street vendors apart from those who sell fruit salads or fresh drinks.
In the afternoon we move to another cove, rather small, mostly unknown: Cala Mastella. Cala Mastella is one of the smallest beaches of Ibiza, a thin strip of sand and pebbles and a single tavern, very rustic is the bohiemien flavor where you can only enjoy lunch a homemade paella with fresh fish that seems to be among the best of Ibiza, a real secret place. The tiny beach is reached after crossing a lush pine forest, one of those that you will be very easy to see in the green northern part of the island.
