Introducing holidays to Cala Llonga
If you’re looking for a relaxing resort overlooking the clear, sparkling waters of the Mediterranean Sea then look no further than Cala Llonga. As this quiet destination is such a popular choice for family holidays and couple’s beach breaks, it may come as a surprise that Cala Llonga is located on the notorious party island of Ibiza. However, this Balearic gem has much more to offer guests than wild nights out. Holidays to Cala Llonga offer a completely different side to the island, away from the hustle and bustle of the livelier spots. On holidays in Cala Llonga you’ll find one of the biggest beaches in the whole of Ibiza; this breath-taking bay is surrounded by rolling, pine-covered hills and is an absolute must for all beach lovers, water sports enthusiasts and sunbathers alike.
A holiday to Cala Llonga is the ideal way to see the famously scenic landscape of Ibiza and experience first-hand the incredible culture and atmosphere that the Balearics are so well known for, without having to get stuck in to the crowded touristy side of things. Here the whole family can enjoy fun in the sunshine: put your feet up and be just as active or as relaxed as you like.
Life’s a Beach
Holidays to Cala Llonga usually revolve around the resort’s Blue Flag winning beach. This spacious stretch of sand is large enough that it never feels too crowded, even at the busiest times of summer. This round bay reaches right back into the pine covered cliffs and hills of eastern Ibiza, giving it a secluded, rural feel, and the creamy sands of Cala Llonga beach shelve very gently into the warm, blue sea which allows the water to remain shallow until quiet far out. This makes the beach extremely popular with families looking for safe waters for the little ones to paddle in. Further out, where the water is deeper, you’ll find a colourful seabed which is home to exotic fish such as bright blue damselfish. Thanks to this array of aquatic life, diving is a great activity to get up to in Cala Llonga and there are scuba diving centres situated around the beach. When you feel like you’ve packed in as much beach fun as you can manage in one day, head to one of the many beachfront bars and restaurants to fill up on snacks and refreshing drinks.
The island’s capital, Ibiza Town, is just a 20 minute drive from Cala llonga and well worth the journey. This beautiful town has a medieval old quarter which has even been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. To enter this perfectly preserved old town, you must walk through a lowered drawbridge and down a pathway lined with towering ancient Roman statues. There is something fascinating to see around every corner here; every Gothic building and monument provides an insight to the history of Balearic culture, especially the 14th century cathedral of Santa Maria d’Eivissa.
