Aigües Blanques in the Ibizan language or Aguas Blancas in Spanish is a dream come true. Its name means white waters which explains the clarity of its turquoise sea and fine white sand.
It is among Ibiza’s few officially nudist beaches. Although in Ibiza, it is common to find nudists in some areas, ‘officially nudist’ means that there are freedom and tolerance for those who practice it.
Type: Sandy Beach
Aguas Blancas sits under cliffs, surrounded by woods of pine and juniper, it is not a very big cove, it is 300 meters long and 5 to 15 meters wide. Some areas are rocky but there is fine sand, mostly within and outside the water. This cove is part of the municipality of Santa Eulalia del Río, situated in the island’s northeast. It has the essential services of showers, toilets, restaurant, deckchairs and umbrellas.

Did you know?
Ibiza became a haven for the hippie culture in the sixties, with many young Europeans and Americans seeking a refuge on the island to share their sense of independence. Most of them settled in the village of San Carlos, in the northwest of the island. When they explored that area, they found the Aguas Blancas beach, which they opened as a nudist beach. This has since become a spot to experience the freedom to sunbathe and swim without clothes but with reverence.
