Living in Ibiza: Life in Cala Tarida
The west coast of Sant Josep de Sa Talaia is one of the most sought-after areas to buy property in Ibiza, with an equally golden demand for tourism. It is hardly surprising the west coast draws so much attention with its fantastic white-sanded beaches, family-friendly and chic atmosphere, and spectacular surrounding landscape and sunset views. Just to name a few of its first-class attributes.
Here lies the resort of Cala Tarida. Situated between the island’s third largest town, San Antonio, and the charming village of Sant Josep, Cala Tarida is a haven of peace and tranquility. Its beautiful location offers great lengths of pure white sand and clear bottomless turquoise waters. Apart from its natural beauty, the area’s tranquilizing atmosphere, thoughtfully developed hotels, trending restaurants, and local bars make Cala Tarida a paradisal spot for fashionable and returning clientele.
Nearby blue flag beaches, such as Cala Bassa, Cala Comte, and Racó d’en Xic offer a relaxed boho-chic environment. Cala Molí is known as a great snorkeling location and kayaking spot. Here visitors can hire Kayaks for a daytime adventure exploring all the local surrounding beaches, coves and islets of the Cala Tarida bay.
