The Beaches of Ibiza

An island is like a boat and for this reason we recommend that at the start of the day the first thing you should find out, before choosing a beach, is the direction of the wind. If you are looking for a calm sea, go to the opposite side of the island from the direction the wind is coming from, the leeward side in seaman's language. On the other hand, if you want a sea with greater movement, more appropriate for certain sports, go towards the part of the coast where the wind is coming from, the windward in the language of the sea.
