Things to do in Salinas
Las Salinas is found on the southernmost part of the island and is famed for its broad, crescent-shaped sandy beaches. At the other end of the beach, small catamarans lie on the sand. There is also a pirate tower where you’ll pass a line of pubs and restaurants where its gourmet food, beautiful crowd, and stunning setting make it a crowd favourite.
All of the clubs in the area play a good mix of dance and Balearic music that flows out onto the beach. A calmer area can be found farther down, which is a popular place for nudists. There is also a little strip of sand with a rocky entry to the ocean, which is home to the once-bustling, vibrant, and beautiful Sa Trinxa.
It is worth mentioning that, while Salinas is usually a nice spot to unwind, it’s not always quiet. There are party parades, ticket vendors, and beach merchants that line the beach during the summer months. The sun shines bright all day and there are plenty of gorgeous people to view as you wait for your meal and drinks to be delivered to you by servers on the beach. Prices are a tad higher, so if you are on a budget, packing a picnic basket with you is definitely a smart option.
Right next to Salinas is the Playa d’en Bossa, which is known for its excellent boat parties.

Salinas is known for its Parque Natural de Ses Salines. It is an ecosystem that extends from Ibiza’s southeast coast all the way to Formentera. Herons, ospreys, black-winged stilts, shelduck, ringed plovers, peregrine falcons, and flamingos are among the 210 birds recorded here. The park spans 2,838.44 hectares of land and over 13,000 hectares of sea, accounting for 75% of the park's total size. The park exemplifies the uniqueness of Mediterranean biodiversity. Its distinctiveness stems from the fact that it serves as a stopover and breeding site for migrating birds. It contains a range of terrestrial and marine environments with a high ecological and historical landscape.
