Introducing Cala Tarida
Cala Tarida is a small, secluded resort town on the island of Ibiza. Located just 10 minutes from San Jose, and 15 minutes from the party capital of San Antonio, holidays in Cala Tarida are a great compromise, offering calm surroundings with easy access to the lively tourist centres. As a result the resort is a popular destination for families, as well as couples on their honeymoon.
Cala Tarida Holidays
Cala Tarida boasts the longest and widest stretch of beach on this side of the island. The fine white sand here makes Cala Tarida the perfect spot for sunbathing and beach games, and the resort features a vibrant beach community – with plenty of activities on offer for young and old alike. You’ll find a good range of water sports offered here, including exciting activities such as jet skiing, water skiing and wind surfing. The clean and clear water here remains shallow for quite a distance out, making it a safe place to bring young children.
For those more adventurous holidaymakers, there are a number of interestingly shaped rocks out in the bay – it’s possible to swim out to these, and find a private spot for sunbathing! Alternatively, visit the scuba diving school in Cala Tarida, to sign up for lessons. The school caters from anyone from beginner to advanced level, and also operates guided tours underneath the waves of the Atlantic.
The beach at Cala Tarida stretches a distance of almost 300m, and the entire length is filled with shops, bars, cafés and restaurants. You’ll find plenty of places here where you can enjoy a good meal out in the open, overlooking the beautiful bay. Seafood is a particular favourite on the island, and many of the dishes served here proudly feature the catch of the day.
Alternatively, head into the resort itself to enjoy a good selection of shops and bars. If you’re looking for large shopping centres and lively nights out however, then perhaps Cala Tarida is not the place for you – nearby San Antonio makes for a great day out, and here you’ll be able to shop and party to your heart’s content!
