Where to drop anchor in Ibiza

Where to drop anchor in Ibiza is one of the questions we get asked most from our customers when renting a boat in Ibiza. 

Ibiza is a very sought-after destination not only for its beauty, but also its wide variety of coves where you can have an amazing swim, go diving and do all sorts or water sports/activities. If you visit them by boat, you can enjoy it by yourselves, thanks to the opportunity to change scenery repeatedly or watch the sunsets from the sea. And, although you can anchor in many places in Ibiza, have in mind that not all of them are secure, for example, if you want to spend the night without a sudden change of scenery anchor in the right place because the weather can trick you.

If you plan to sail around Ibiza and want the experience of spending a night on your boat instead of sleeping in a port, here is a list of 5 coves in Ibiza to anchor at that you cannot miss!

Cala Molí is a small cove, with very clean and clear water. As well as being perfect for anchoring, Cala Moli is protected by a cliff so there is hardly any wind and you can rest peacefully at night.

Around 5 or 6 boats can fit in Cala Moli, where the seabed is sandy but as you approach the beach there are some smaller stones.

Porroig is a perfect alternative to anchor in Ibiza when the other areas of the Island have rough sea. This is due to its location being well protected by the surrounding hills, it is a real treat to swim in these waters.
