Discovering Hidden Beaches in Ibiza
As I mentioned in yesterdays Ibiza blog post, we decided to rent a car for the duration of our short stay, and that gave us total freedom to spend our days in various locations, including a few places that were a little off-the-beaten-track! On day two, we typed ‘Portinatx’ into our Google Maps, having heard so much about the charming town, and the hidden beaches that you could discover nearby. We enjoyed an iced coffee in the town before venturing down to the ‘main’ beach, taking in the beautiful views and dipping our toes into the crystal clear waters.
We decided we wanted to ‘set up camp’ somewhere a little quieter, so hit the road again and kept our eyes peeled for the small road signs which hinted at small beaches along the coastal road – warning – the tracks are a little bit bumpy!! Head over to my vlog from the trip to see how stunning the beach was that we settled at!

My Favourite Lunch Spot in Ibiza
While doing my research for our trip, I’d earmarked a place called Atzaro, as a potential spot for lunch or dinner. I always use blogs and Instagram location pins to search out the best places, and it’s a method that rarely lets me down! A 15 minute drive from the beach where we’d spent the morning, down a dusty long track, was a place known as Agroturismo Atzaro. We rang ahead to book a table, but it was fairly so this hadn’t really been necessary (although I imagine it would be a different scenario at dinner time) – and we enjoyed a delicious lunch under a beautiful floral pergola – it was possibly the most scenic lunch I’ve had this year! We enjoyed crisp and tasty rosé wine, and a menu inspired by the Atzaro gardens; I enjoyed Patatas Bravas churros (best bravas I’ve ever had for sure) and a garden risotto, while mum enjoyed the set menu, with the catch of the day and a trio of small tapas style starters including octopus croquettes and a tomato & burrata dish.
After lunch, we made our way to the spa area of the hotel, where we were able to spend the afternoon for €25 each. We asked about the day fee and found out that it would be €80 each for a full day, but this amount would be deducted from your food bill, so we booked to return on our final day – as we so fell in love with the beautiful surroundings.
