Sandy bay next to Ibiza Town
Talamanca claims a picturesque piece of Ibiza's south-eastern coast. It sits on the outskirts of Ibiza Town, with a fabulous beach lined by a bustling boardwalk – you can hot-foot it from Talamanca's marina along to Ibiza Town in around 15 minutes.
The beach is big news here; golden and glorious, it's big enough that you can always find a quiet spot to throw down your towel, with activities like pedalos and jet-skis at the marina if you fancy.
This is relaxed, grown-up Ibiza; there's a good collection of bars and restaurants backing the beach, but you won't find superclubs. Hotels here are handily placed for peace and quiet, but it couldn't be easier to seek out Ibiza Town's attractions if you want to up the tempo.
Flight time from the UK to Ibiza is around 2 hours 15 minutes.
Transfer time from Ibiza airport to Cala Talamanca is approximately 15 minutes.
Ibiza’s weather is classic Mediterranean, with warm, sunny summers and mild temperatures the rest of the year. May is when the holiday season kicks off in earnest, reaching the mid-20s and climbing towards 30°C for the hottest months of July and August.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.
Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
