The stunning beach at Ses Boques is a testament to the natural geography of Ibiza and is the location for the beach purist, who loves nothing more than relaxing and bathing in the stunning unique landscapes of the island.
Located 15 minutes from the village of Sant Josep, Ses Boques is narrow beach positioned in the south-west of Ibiza. Benefiting from seclusion by the cliffs and rocky outcrops, the beach is certainly well hidden, with only the brave and daring making the trip along the windy and bumpy cliff roads that descend dramatically to the car park and sand below. For those who do decide to make the trip along the cliff edge, the majestic panoramic views across the Mediterranean are the perfect reward for their toils.
The stony beach is not everyone’s cup of tea, but the dramatic brown and red pebbles are certainly unique, giving the beach the appearance of being in another world. The beach is lined with traditional wooden fishing huts and old fishing boats occasionally bob on the horizon, harking back to the beach’s historical importance to the area. There are a few sun loungers and parasols available but not as many as you would expect in the major resorts. The natural rocky surroundings and lack of waterside entertainment such as banana boats and paddle boats tends to put off families and younger visitors, but it is extremely popular among local sun worshippers and those in search of serenity.
Although the beach is relatively isolated, it does offer a small restaurant that sits at the back of the beach offering spectacular and tasty local cuisine, often based around the catch of the day. The restaurant also has a terrace area – the perfect spot for taking in some light refreshment and watching the waves lapping at the shore.
