THE BEACH

Cala Llonga Beach is one of the island's most loved due to its fine powder sand and stunning horizon. The wide bay is blessed with sparking turquoise waters framed by dramatic cliffs at each side. This gorgeous beach is very popular with families as it is very shallow and therefore safe for swimming.

There is a pretty rustic jetty on the beach where there are several ferry boats per day to Formentera, Ibiza Town and Santa Eulalia. 

This postcard perfect horseshoe bay is dotted with a range of little boutiques, restaurants and cafe bars - everything from rustic seafood to fine dining to vegan cafes and traditional Spanish bars are all here, harmoniously alongside A-list beach clubs and five star hotels.

SHOPPING

Cala Llonga is a small village but has all the essentials including a pharmacy, supermarkets, boutique fashion stores and artisan gift shops.
 

 

Each Thursday evening during the summer season, the promenade plays host to a fabulous Hippy Market, with stalls selling bohemian clothing, bags and accessories, handcrafted jewellery, and Ibizan art and souvenirs.

ACTIVITIES

Setting aside the internationally renowned club scene on the island, those looking for fun and adventure without the late nights are totally spoilt for choice in activities to get involved in.

EXPLORING

If you wish to explore further afield by day, one of the most entertaining and relaxing means of transport is the small Tourist Train, leading you to a pleasant day-trip visiting nearby beaches or the famous hippy markets of the island.
