Cala Bassa - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
The beaches of Ibiza all differ from one another. This was low season so there was still place to put a tripod and take the photographs. Cala Bassa is one of the larger sandy beaches on Ibiza, as can be seen in this panorama. It can get very busy in the high season.

Panorama from Cala Bassa in Ibiza. Cala Bassa is a large curved bay on the north west coast of Ibiza with a fine white sand beach, which lies between Cala Roja and Port des Torrent. The beach, which is 250m long, is bordered on either side by rocky outcrops which are popular points for fishing. This panoramic photograph was taken from near the middle of the beach. Behind the beach is a Sabrian pine forest which can offer some shade and pleasant walks.
The bay of Cala Bassa has gentle sloping waters and a sandy bottom, which makes Cala Bassa very popular with families. In the summer months Cala Bassa is a hugely popular beach with families. The beach has a number of facilities including sun bed hire, showers, restaurants and pedalos. There is a large car park right by the beach, and a regular ferry services between Cala Bassa and San Antoio during the summer months.
As can be seen in this panoramic photograph, a large curve of fine white sand with rocky promontories on either side ideal for fishing, backed with shady pine forests good for walking or a cool and peaceful siesta. The shallow, gently sloping waters over a sandy bottom are suitable for games and children. So gentle is the slope that the waters are less than 2m deep even 50m from the shoreline.
