Cala Comte, IBIZA
Cala Comte is one of the most beautiful beaches in Ibiza with its soft, golden sand and clear, turquoise water.
It’s made up of 2 sandy coves, one of which has a rocky coastline whilst the other is backed by sand dunes. In between the beaches on top of the hill is the popular and somewhat famous bar/restaurant of Sunset Ashram. And it has its name for good reason – the sunset viewed from Sunset Ashram and Cala Comte is stunning and not to be missed.
As well as beautiful beaches, sunbeds, parasols, toilets, lifeguard and disables access can all be found at Cala Comte.
