Cala Llonga is a picturesque beach resort located on the east coast of the island of Ibiza. It is within easy reach of the capital of Ibiza Town, as well as the thriving beach community of Santa Eulalia. However, unlike these larger resorts, Cala Llonga manages to retain something of its old village feel. For this reason, holidays to Cala Llonga are popular with families and those in search of a little culture and history during their stay.
There are plenty of things to see and do during a holiday to Cala Llonga. The area boasts some great family attractions, such as a number of mini amusement parks, and a wooden play area built on the beach. Grownups on the other hand might like to take advantage of the nearby golf course, or the extensive shopping facilities on offer.
The beach itself is both beautiful and well sheltered, providing a safe area for children to swim and play in the sand whilst on holiday in Cala Llonga. In fact, this is one of the largest beaches on the island. You’ll find plenty of opportunities for water sports here as well, which range from scuba diving to jet skis!
If you’re looking for culture during your holiday to Cala Llonga, then head into the town itself. There is a strong sense of local heritage here, and a number of museums that can be visited. Cala Llonga has a long history of pirates and smugglers, who were drawn here by the shelter and cover provided by the small bay. You’ll find some great markets in the town, with the most famous of these held at Es Cana every Wednesday. Here visitors can browse through stalls selling everything from homemade silver jewellery, to woodcarvings and unique souvenirs.
Cala Llonga boasts a great selection of restaurants and tapas bars, most of which serve the typical Ibiza cuisine of fresh fish, local produce and regional wines. There are some good bars to explore, but if you’re looking for nightlife, then you’re better off heading to the livelier resorts at Ibiza Town and San Antonio.
To conclude, Cala Llonga is the perfect destination for anyone looking for a cultural twist on the typical beach holiday. You’ll find no shortage of beaches and restaurants, but instead of the busy nightclubs of the larger resorts holidays to Cala Llonga incorporate a generous helping of local culture.
