Cala Carbo, IBIZA
Cala Carbo is one of the smaller beaches in Ibiza – it is quiet and secluded and has the feeling of a private beach.
It’s popular with locals and expats and, since it’s off the beaten track, is not too busy.
38° 53′ 40″ N, 1° 13′ 3″ E
WIND & SWELL
Cala Carbo is a small bay and is protected nearer to the beach but space is limited. In any case it offers good shelter from easterly winds which occur more in the summer, but is very open to all western winds.
ANCHORING / SEABED
The seabed consists of sand and seaweed.
Good moorings for private boats are available but normally for longer periods and suitable for smaller boats.
Its possible to take your dinghy to the left as you approach the beach, outside the yellow swimming markers. However there is not much space at this corner of the beach so you may be asked to leave the dinghy in the water.
The beach is a mixture of sand and pebbles, surrounded by rocky pine-covered hills with the beach gently sloping into clear water. Parasols and sun loungers are available to hire on the beach.
FOOD & DRINK
There are 2 restaurants at Cala Carbo serving local fare, especially fish.
There are no shops at Cala Carbo.
THINGS TO DO
Relax, sunbathe, swim, snorkelling, or do some fishing off the small jetty. If you stay into the evening you can watch the wonderful sunset.
The only access to Cala Carbo is by car and the drive from both Ibiza Town and San Antonio takes around 25 minutes. There is a small car park close to the beach that can become busy in July and August.
