One of Ibiza’s best known beauty spots, the little resort Portinatx is a popular stop on the Round The Island excursion. The bay offers magnificent panoramic views, crystalline clear water, high, rocky shorelines and a seabed of fine, white sand.
There are three good, sandy beaches in this area, all safe for children and offering a variety of activities.
The largest is in the bay across from the main coach park, S’Arenal Gros; little S’Arenal Petit, which is more private, is around the corner from the rocky promontory to the left. The third is Playa Porto Beach, surrounded by little pineclad hillocks, it is in a little cove at the end of the main road where you’ll also find the lighthouse.
Facilities: As the beaches are located in the resort there’s a good choice of shops, bars and restaurants close by all three.
