Surfing in Ibiza is unforgettable, yet slightly dangerous due to the sharp coral reefs that can seriously hurt surfers if they venture into the treacherous waters.
The most convenient spot for windsurfing and kite surfing is considered to be Aguas Blancas, particularly the north of it, owing to the best waves. However, it also can be dangerous due to submerged cliffs which are not so visible from afar.
Cala Martina is situated in the northwest of Ibiza and works with the southwestern wind. You can only launch from the boat here as this beach is rather small.
Espalmador Island works with the eastern wind, which is usually offshore and flat or west wind, which is choppy but still quite flat. You will probably kite here if you come in late spring or early summer if the wind direction is close to perfect.
Es Codolls works with southern and southwestern winds for small waves or free ride. This shingle beach is more suitable for windsurfing and experienced kiters. Anyway, you'd better stay away from the nearby airport flight path, otherwise, law enforcement may disturb you.
The wind is usually stable and not too strong around Ibiza. However, its probability is not the highest, so it is the ideal spot to learn windsurfing or kitesurfing. To prevent any accidents, new-coming surfers are advised to ask locals for the safest surfing areas. The benefits of surfing in Ibiza may be felt to its fullest in the months of May to August when the water temperature reaches its peak, and the waves are equally perfect due to the thermal wind on nearly a daily basis. At that time, it stays like that for at least a week.
