The sand on a beach is fine, with a brown shade. Sometimes there are small stones. The entry into the sea is gentle, but on the outskirts of Cala Bassa towers tall rocks. If you enter deep into the beach, you will find a few rest areas in the pine forest that is behind Cala Bassa.

Cavallet is located in the southern part of the island, near the international airport of Ibiza. There are generally not many people here, so it is one of the few beaches where you can relax peacefully.
Cavallet is often referred to as one of the most popular nudist beaches in Ibiza, but this is not entirely true – there used to be a lot of those who preferred to rest naked, but now, it is extremely rare.
The entry to the sea is shallow, but very often the seaweed comes up to the shore, because of which many tourists compare the beach with a swamp. The sand on Cavallet is fine and golden, there are no stones and shells. The water has an azure hue. The beach is more than 2 km long and about 100 meters wide.
