5 Must-see creeks in Ibiza

With just over 7 million tourists a year, Ibiza, a small Balearic island known for its famous nightlife and luxury lifestyle, is one of the most fashionable destinations at the moment. The festive and joyous lifestyle being one of the main attractions of this sun-kissed island, it is easy to forget about the hidden treasures it has to offer. Why not enjoy a day of peace and quiet at a hidden creek, far away from civilization? Whether you will be accessing those by foot or boat, these secret creeks will take your breath away, not an opportunity to miss!

1. Cala Llentrisca

Located in the South West of the island, at the end of the bay of Es Cubells, near Cap Llentrisca, this secluded cove with emerald water will not fail to impress you. Let yourself be tempted with complete solitude and peace, as the creek is not known to those who aren’t owners of fishermen's huts. The distinct contrast of the turquoise, almost crystal clear water with the vibrant green reflected off the underwater vegetation will provide a complete change of scenery from the familiar beaches. This creek is less suitable for children and older people as the 400 metres path leading to Cala Llentrisca is rocky, narrow and arduous. It is important to note that there are no restaurants and services in this cove, which will provide an even more ‘pure’ experience.
