Aigües Blanques/ Sant Carles de Peralta, 07850 Santa Eulària des Riu, Islas Baleares, Spain
Find the quiet side of IbizaNot everyone comes to Ibiza for the music. Personally, clubbing is about as far down my list of holiday activities as spelunking and crocodile baiting. So the beaches of Ibiza town, with its beach parties and its school-break clientele, are rather too lively for my tastes. Luckily it's a small island, and you don't have to drive far to reach its remote outer regions. Only 40minutes journey and you can reach the north east end of the island, where the sand is white, the sea is blue, and the sunbathers are olive-skinned locals. There are plenty of little beaches around here, and Aigues Blanques is one of the delights - carved out of the surrounding rocks as if with a giant ice cream scoop. Oh, and it has a very liberal approach to bathing, so expect a fair amount of nudism.
