Dalt Vila


In the walled city the past and the present coexist

  • In summer only residents can access by car, so tourists will do well to wear comfortable shoes to overcome the cobbled slopes. It is recommended not to forget a bottle of water to hydrate.


  • The Tower is a construction The Phoenicians were the first to settle on the mountain of Puig de Vila in the 6th century BC. After the Punic Wars the city became Roman under the name of Ebusus. With the fall of the empire, Vandals and Byzantines arrived until in the 10th century the Muslims settled it and called it Yebisah.


  • They built a triple wall that fell easily before the troops of Jaime I, commanded by the Archbishop of Tarragona, Guillem de Montgrí, on August 8, 1235. Legend has it that he was the brother of the sheikh, annoyed by the more than brotherly loves between the governor and his wife, who opened the doors to Christians.


  • The island was repopulated by Catalans coming mostly from the Empordà area.


  • Sant Ciriac (San Ciriaco) was the saint of the day and since then he has been the patron saint of Ibiza. A small chapel stands today in the place where the troops entered and inside it you can see the beginning of the tunnel that is said to be used.


  • A steep alley will allow us to approach the Cathedral of Santa María de las Nieves from that point. When the Christian troops took the city they chose that Marian denomination to be celebrated on August 2, the date close to the entrance.


  • Construction of the temple began in the early 13th century on an old mosque. The building, initially Gothic, evolved until the 18th century Baroque when it was finished.


  • Its exterior is sober and severe and follows the model of fortress churches, with solid buttresses. Inside there is an altarpiece dedicated to Saint Gregory. The complex also houses the Cathedral Museum.


  • The Almudaina castle and the walls were ordered to be built by Felipe II to stop the attacks of the Algerian and Turkish corsairs. Among its bastions are those of San Jorge, Santiago and Santa Lucía. The fortress covers an area of 10 hectares.


  • The architect in charge of the works was Giovanni Battista Calvi who had to solve the serious problem of the lack of rock that he had to import from other islets.


  • The resulting complex is one of the best preserved walled enclosures in the world and has been declared a World Heritage Site like the other monuments of Dalt Vila. You can only visit the outside. The Sant Joan bastion houses the Museum of Contemporary Art.


  • In Plaça d'Espanya is the old Dominican Convent, occupied since 1838 by the City Council. The refectory, two cloisters and the church with an interesting dome have been preserved. Upon entering the building you will find the old chapter house of the monks with some interesting frescoes in its vault. Currently, temporary exhibitions of the Museum of Contemporary Art are held there.


  • Leaving Dalt Vila through Portal Nou may be a good option as it preserves the original wooden doors from the 16th century and the shield of the Crown of Aragon. Afterwards, a short walk can lead us to the Molí d'en Cantó, which has a recomposed arches. There were more than 60 mills on the island, some dedicated to grinding grain and others used to extract water destined to be stored in cisterns or to irrigate crops.


  • Its walls of almost one meter thick, built with lime and sand mortar, stand out; the helical staircase and the overlapping circular molas. As well as the double doors on opposite walls.


  • The Portal de ses Taules, next to the Mercat Vell (Old Market) is a good place to start your visit to Dalt Vila. Going through the gate, you reach the parade ground and Plaza de Vila, an attractive shopping area.

Cala Llonga


Fine sand and pine forests are the protagonists

  • We recommend this beach if you are traveling with small children. It is a place with enough tourist attractions for the elderly but also with a very suitable beach for the little ones.


  • It is one of the main tourist areas of Santa Eulària. In its surroundings there are hotels, shops, bars, restaurants and leisure facilities. The bus service is good. And during the summer months a small fair of attractions is mounted.


  • The beach is 180 m long by 100 wide. It has fine sand and a spectacular setting marked by the pine forests that surround it. It is an appropriate place for children and has a swing area in the same sand.


  • It has hammocks, umbrellas, showers, public toilets, lifeguards and access for the disabled. There are pedal boats, a diving school, beach volleyball facilities and gym equipment.


  • Many of the users of the beach are residents of the area since the mountains that surround it are full of urbanizations.


  • In general, Santa Eulària and Cala Llonga are an ideal place for those who prefer a quieter tourism, away from the crowds and the nightlife.


  • We will start the afternoon with a visit to a pleasant and ideal beach to go with children or for those who want to enjoy the sun to the fullest.

Santa Eulària des Riu


Temple and fortress, the church gave protection to bodies

  • In summer the large influx of public makes it very difficult to park in the vicinity of the church. That is why it is convenient to park in the town and walk the rest of the way.


  • It is better to avoid that your visit coincides with February 12, Santa Eulalia or with the third Sunday of May, the Puig de Missa festival because on those days the crowds are greater.


  • The Church was one of the four fortress temples that were established as a defense against attacks by Turkish and North African pirates.


  • In 1235 a small temple was built on a hill overlooking the river and the coast. In the 16th century it was destroyed by privateers and then it was decided to build the fortified area. It is believed that Giovanni Batista Calvi was responsible for its creation.


  • It was inaugurated in 1568 and the tower a few years later, although it was later modified. After the battle of Lepanto, when the Ottoman attacks descended, the porch was expanded with a colonnaded porch, two chapels, the sacristy and the houses of the vicar "cas vicari" and the priest "cas capellà"


  • In 1782 it became a parish and the bishop bought the surrounding land where he built several houses that were soon occupied.


  • The interior is sober, with chapels dedicated to the Virgin of the Rosary, of Carmen and of Bethlehem, the Holy Trinity, and Saints Antonio Abad, Antonio de Padua, Cosme and Damián.


  • The baroque altarpiece is the work of the sculptor José Ferreres and was originally in San Millán (Segovia). After the Civil War it was donated to the temple by the Marquis de Lozoya who had a home in the area.


  • The entire temple is covered by a Via Crucis made of Valencian tiles, among whose images the Christ tied to the column of the 17th century stands out.


  • The access porch is off-center with respect to the entrance due to its considerable size as it served as a meeting place for the residents of the area.


  • The neighboring cemetery is also worth a visit. It has well-kept gardens, fountains and areas for different religious confessions.


  • Going down from Puig you can visit the Can Ros Museum of Ethnography, a good example of rural Ibizan architecture. In it there is a permanent exhibition that includes household objects, farm utensils, musical instruments, weapons, clothing and jewelry. The artisan workshops demonstrate practically how the articles exhibited in the rooms were created. Monographic exhibitions are held periodically.


  • The temple and its surroundings were declared a Picturesque Landscape in 1952 and still retain the same charm. This set of houses, church and cemetery keeps old Eivissa alive.


  • Enjoy the impressive landscapes that can be seen and do not forget to visit the small cemetery or the Ethnographic Museum of Ibiza and Formentera.


  • Entrance to the museum: € 2.40.

Mercado Hippy Las Dalias


An immersion in the hippie culture of Ibiza

  • If you want to avoid paying the 3.50 euros for parking next to the market, it is best to leave your car in Sant Carles and walk a few minutes.


  • The market was inaugurated with only 5 stalls on February 14, 1985. Its creator was Juanito Juan. In 1954 his father Juan, farmer and carpenter, created a bar to which he later added a dance hall. In the 1960s, he negotiated with tour operators to bring travelers to his barbecue. The rest is history of the island.


  • From the five positions at the beginning it has reached the current 300. In August, up to 20,000 visitors can pass through the place.


  • What can you find? Handmade clothing, costume jewelery, musical instruments, painting, books, hammocks, incense… In clothes you cannot miss the Mora Shröder stall and her colorful vests. She is one of the veterans, like the Cabal sisters with her "Don't forget me" or Beatrice San Francisco with her brand "Love Alliance" dedicated to Adlib fashion that was born in these lands; or the dresses from "Ilva" and the espadrilles hand painted by Cristina.


  • Master Gianni Rinaldi is the jewelery expert; José Luis Domínguez in leather; Yaron on musical instruments and Jackie on second hand books.


  • But in Las Dalias you will also find someone who discovers his future in the lines of his hand, or gives him a massage.


  • Good music has been key in the night market development. Nina Hagen, Baro Rojo, Los Rebeldes, Obus, Barricada, UB 40, Stan Webb ...


  • To look, smell, compare, walk, buy and above all enjoy. A delight for all the senses, except if you don't like crowds and come in summer. In that case it is better to arrive first thing in the morning.


  • Free access, except for special events. Paid parking.

Aigües Blanques


A nudist beach with mud baths

  • We recommend that you drive very carefully because the access road is difficult and full of curves.


  • Nor is the descent from the parking area to the sea easy so it is better to watch your footwear.


  • Before arriving at the cove, you can make a short stop at Sant Carles de Peralta, a small town built around a small whitewashed church with plenty of shops offering traditional Ibizan herbal liqueurs. Administratively it depends on Santa Eulària des Riu.


  • In San Carles it is celebrated especially on June 24 with the blessing of the animals and the festivities on June 29 and November 4.


  • The route to the beach is not very easy but it is well signposted. Pass the Ca Na Aneta bar in the town of Sant Carles de Peralta and then take a detour to the left until you reach the indication that indicates our destination.


  • Aigües Blanques has a length of 300 meters and a width of 15 m, the shallow depth of the beach causes the waves to cover it with white foam when breaking on the shore. That's where its name comes from.


  • The steepness of the cliffs that surround the cove has contributed to preserving the environment and preventing the construction of urbanizations.


  • The cliffs are made up of grayish clay rocks and cliffs. It has become customary to wet the walls with water and obtain mud to spread over the body. It is common to see bathers walking on the beach wrapped in gray mud. Taking it off is the easiest, just dive into the sea.


  • A mud bath improves the skin, leaving it younger and smoother, as it detoxifies it thanks to its different properties. Another benefit is that they relieve both muscle tension and inflammation. It is even recommended for older people, as they calm arthritis and joint pain. If you want to look for scientific evidence, there is no total agreement.


  • In Ibiza nudism is frequent on many beaches and this one, because of its hidden nature, is one of the favorites. Anyway, the policy of tolerance prevails and swimwear and naked bodies coexist without any problem.


  • From the beach you have a perfect view of the Tamomago islet. It is a not very mountainous island with a length of 1,525 m and a maximum width of 113 m. It is owned by a Swiss businessman and is rented for holidays.


  • Some of its tenants have been Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Liz Hurley or the singer Justin Timberlake.


  • We finish our tour of the first day with a visit to the beautiful Aigües Blanques beach, a true place of worship for nudists from all over the world who come to enjoy its waters and mud to which therapeutic properties are attributed.

Cova de Can Marça


A hundred thousand year old cave on a cliff

  • It must be borne in mind that inside the cave there is a lot of humidity, so the floor is usually slippery. Be careful with your shoes! The inside temperature of the cave drops quite a few degrees compared to the outside, so it is better to wear a light warm garment.


  • It was the smugglers, abundant in the area, who discovered this protected hole at the top of the cliff and made it a hiding place for their stash. Since the eighties it has become an important tourist destination.


  • In the 1970s, the Belgian spelunker Jean Pierre Van der Abeelle visited it for the first time, guided by the residents of the area. A few years later, the family that owns it conditioned it and recovered the waterfalls and streams that had existed.


  • The entrance is about 14 meters above the sea and is accessed by a path that runs along the cliffs and allows you to enjoy impressive views.


  • During the 40-minute interior tour, it is possible to see stalactics and stalagmites that owe their sharp silhouettes to the water that flowed through the cave and is now absent in the exterior areas.


  • In the deeper sections the dripping of water continues creating new forms.


  • The cave itself has been quite touched up, but the water, light and music show is very good. In the interior numerous fossils and skeletons of extinct species have been found.


  • A small cave that cannot be compared to its older sisters in Drach or Artà in Mallorca, but it has great charm. The visit can be done with children who really enjoy the tour.


  • Adults 11 euros. Children from 4 to 12 years old: 7 euros.

Cala Saladeta


Two beaches in one with an incredibly blue sea

  • It is important that you know that access by car can be difficult. For this reason, we advise you to park in the town or in Can Coix and then take a bus that leaves the station every 15 minutes from 9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.


  • Another alternative that we advise is to arrive by boat from Sant Antoni. Departures at 10:30 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. and returns at 12:45 p.m., 4:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.


  • Eighty meters in length and 25 in width for beaches of golden sand and crystal clear waters.


  • Located to the north of Sant Antoni de Portamany, they can be accessed from the town by the PM-812 road.


  • Cala Salada, the first one we find, is easily accessible and has all kinds of services, including showers, hammocks and pedal boats.


  • There are two ways to access Cala Saladeta by climbing a cliff or by following a small path that begins between the rocks. Then a ladder leads down to the sand. Possibly that is why this second cove has a much more youthful atmosphere. There are no services in it.


  • Some people prefer to settle on the rocks and use them as improvised stepping stones to the sea.


  • Because it is the main protagonist: blue, turquoise, clean, with a slowly descending beach ... A true paradise. If you are fond of snorkeling, you cannot miss it and if you have a water camera this is the place to use it.


  • We now continue visiting a spectacular double beach, one after the other, but which has the problem of always being quite crowded.


  • There is a restaurant on the beach that allows you to access the parking lot and leave your car closer.


  • Free access. The Can Coix car park is too.

Passeig de Ses Fonts


A visit to the most remote past

  • Given the state of the road, it is best to use an all-terrain car or at least one that is not very low because the potholes take their toll.


  • Remember to wear safe footwear because not only will you have to walk part of the way, but to go through a cave it is better to have your feet protected.


  • This cave located about 50 meters above sea level, on the cliff of Puig Nonó has been called “La Altamira Pitiusa”, but that definition is quite exaggerated.


  • Only two drawings have been preserved in not very good condition and another area in the eastern part with naval scenes. The paintings were discovered in 1917 by the French naturalist, archaeologist, prehistorian, geologist, ethnologist, and abbe Henri Breuil.


  • Breuil was the first professor of Prehistory at the Collège de France and made important discoveries in Spain, such as those of Peña Escrita and the Cueva del Silo. Although his most famous discovery was the Lascaux cave in southern France.


  • Although at first it was believed that the drawings were from the Bronze Age, later research points to a Punic provenance due to the presence of the ships.


  • At present, access to the cave is closed to preserve the paintings, but it is worth visiting to contemplate the surroundings.


  • During the tour we will be able to observe the west coast of the island, the bay of Sant Antoni and several islets and dispute a walk among pines, junipers and olive trees.


  • The Cap Nonó cliffs are one of the favorite places for climbers who have opened various access routes to the summit.


  • As a curiosity to point out that the cave is also known as “del Vi” because for a time it was used as a cellar.


  • We continue our journey with another visit to the roots of this magical island that transports us to the only cave paintings that are preserved in Ibiza.

catamaran


Enjoy the sunset from a unique place

  • We recommend that you carefully study the offers offered by the different operators and choose the one that best suits your personal tastes. Don't forget your swimsuit, something to cover your head with, and sunscreen!


  • A catamaran is a boat with two parallel hulls of equal size that the Tamils have used since the 5th century. They move by wind or motor.


  • They are very comfortable boats16 because they have practically zero heel (inclination to maintain balance). In addition, the movement is pitching and not rolling so there is less risk of dizziness.


  • On the island, a stop is made to bathe in the sea and watch the sunset while the crew prepares dinner.


  • Finally, music and more drinks to relax while you start your way back, with an estimated time of arrival around 10:00 p.m. and return to the hotel.


  • As for dinner, some offer grilled fish and meat, others include a Spanish tapas buffet and there are those who lean towards paella. The pack usually includes cultural animators and photographers.


  • Some operators offer tickets to clubs in the area included in the price for those who want to complete the night with more parties.


  • Generally, the boats have room for a maximum of 70 people, so there are no large crowds.


  • And we end the day with a different experience that will allow us to bathe and enjoy the beauties of the Pitiusa island from a different perspective.


  • Adults: The price ranges between 70 and 100 euros depending on the companies.

Centro de Buceo Squba Ibiza


Know the bottom of the sea

  • If you are used to diving, you probably only need to rent the equipment in any of the establishments on the island. But if you have never been bitten by the diving bug, we advise you to hire a course of just over 3 hours that will help you discover if the underwater world is for you.


  • Keep in mind that after practicing this sport you have to wait at least 12 hours before getting on a plane.


  • Some basic questions: it is not necessary to have previous experience to dive between 5 and 10 meters as long as you are accompanied by a monitor and you strictly follow their instructions.


  • It is not necessary to be an expert swimmer and courses can be started as young as 10 years old. But this activity is not suitable for pregnant women or people with asthma, diabetes, pneumothorax surgery, or ear infections.


  • The Pitiusas are a true paradise for diving since both Ibiza and Formentera with more than 200 kilometers of coastline, are full of islets, shallow depths, caves or spectacular walls.


  • Being away from the coast, they have exceptional visibility with an average of 30 meters and a maximum of 40. Their climate causes the water temperature to fluctuate between 17 degrees in winter and 27 in summer.


  • The fauna is very varied with species such as breams, barracudas, groupers, brótalas, moray eels, conger eels, crayfish, lobsters, croakers and cuttlefish. The bottom is rocky with meadows of posidonia, coral and sponges.


  • The course for beginners includes a theory class on the boat and a dive to 12 meters.


  • The meeting point to start the course allows us to contemplate another curiosity of the island, the so-called Egg of Columbus.


  • It was inaugurated on October 12, 1992, on the 500th anniversary of the discovery of America. It is a common work of the sculptor Antonio Hormigo, the architect Julio Bauzá and the model maker Luis Ojeda.


  • The egg made of concrete and 6 meters high refers to an anecdote about the challenge that Christopher Columbus threw to some nobles, after one of his trips to America. It consisted of keeping an egg standing, which the navigator achieved by crushing a point.

Torre de Ses Portes


A place to defend the wealth of the island

  • This is one of the routes for which we advise you to wear sports shoes. The dirt trail is not extremely difficult but it does present some problems.


  • It is a two-storey defensive building built in 1749. Another surveillance shelter from the seventeenth century was used for this purpose, one of the first to be built on the island to protect both the salt flats and the Es Freus pass towards Formentera.


  • The building is conical in shape and stands on rocky and uneven terrain. The materials used were characteristic of the area: limestone and ashlar masonry joined with mortar.


  • It is one of the few towers that were armed with artillery. They had three guns. That and the four vents are the only elements that stand out on its smooth walls.


  • But the defense system relied above all on the warnings that the watchman could launch that had to announce the proximity of the attackers with signs of fire or smoke.


  • A spiral staircase, made up of one-piece steps, leads from the ground floor to the platform. It still conserves three corbels that supported a disappeared machicolation.


  • The views that can be seen from this viewpoint are exceptional. The entire Es Freus strait that separates the islands and the string of islets that seem to want to unite them, form a unique set.


  • In the Natural Park of Ses Salines we find a defensive tower. It is an idyllic corner from which to enjoy the beauty of a turquoise sea. The name of Ses Portes alludes to being the gateway to nearby Formentera.

Playa Sa Caleta


A different beach surrounded by reddish earth cliffs

  • You should know that this is one of the favorite beaches of permanent residents in Ibiza, so it is best to arrive early if you want to have room to place your towel.


  • For the same reason, remember that the free parking located about 500 meters from the beach, usually fills up early.


  • Located between steep reddish rock cliffs in the shape of a horseshoe, it offers a quiet refuge to the visitor in its 80 meters in length and 10 in width.


  • It is surrounded by boathouses that are used by amateur and professional fishermen to anchor their boats. Among these you can still see some old “llaüts”. These are small lateen sail boats of approximately four meters in length with three masts and which can reach up to seven knots of speed.


  • On weekends it is very busy by the owners of the booths, but during the week it is quite quiet.


  • A small peninsula next to the cove houses the archaeological site of Sa Caleta. It is a Phoenician town that is the oldest urban nucleus on the island. The archaeological remains date it to the 8th century BC. It is believed that its inhabitants came from the Peninsula and were metal seekers. Fifty years later, they created another town in what is now Ibiza.


  • The population was divided into neighborhoods that housed the different trades. Currently the only visible one is the south which is protected by a fence. Bread ovens can be seen.


  • In the excavations, ceramic remains, fishing hooks, pieces of looms and stone mills were found. However, the most prominent activity was metallurgy, as can be deduced from the remains of silver galena used to obtain lead and silver.


  • We then arrive at the beach of Sa Caleta, which is one of the quietest on the island. Small frequented by fishermen and with historical remains declared a World Heritage Site. All in the same package.

Torre des Savinar


Ibizans say it is the most beautiful place on their island

  • Remember that to reach the Tower you will have to walk about 20 minutes, so it is essential to wear comfortable shoes. If you don't like walking, another possibility is to get on one of the boats, which travel around Es Vedrà.


  • The nature reserve protects a part of the southwest coast of the island. Especially to Cala d'Hort, Cala Carbó and Cala Vedella. As well as the islets of Es Vedrà, Es Vedranell, Sa Conillera, S'Illa des Bosc, S'Espartar and ses Bledes.


  • Within it, between Cala d'Hort and Cala Vedella, there is also the Punic-Roman settlement of Ses Païses de Cala d'Hort, which was a town that was in use between the 5th century BC until the 7th century later. In it you can visit two buildings and two necropolises. The first was Punic and has 20 graves inside of which were found ceramics that allowed a much better understanding of the African lifestyle. The second necropolis corresponds to the Byzantine occupation.


  • A tower with three names: des Savinar, del Pirata or Cap des Jueu. Choose the one you prefer. The first is the authentic one, the last one refers to its geographical enclave and the second has a literary origin: Vicente Blasco Ibáñez in his novel “The Dead Mandan” sheltered his protagonist in the tower.


  • Blasco Ibáñez visited Mallorca and Ibiza in 1902 and was so fascinated by their landscapes and customs that he decided to write this novel, about which in 1950 the film “Ley del mar” was made, directed by Miguel Iglesias and starring Isabel de Pomés, Román Bilbao and Félix de Pomés.


  • The tower completed in 1756 was one of those located in the coastal areas to control the possible arrival of corsairs. It was built to house cannons but they were never placed and served only surveillance functions.


  • It is the highest of the defense constructions on the island, rising 200 meters above sea level. It is also the only one that preserves the entrance from the top. The visit must be arranged with the owner family.


  • From the outside, you can see the islet of Es Vedrà. The singular shape and size, 382 meters above the sea, make the islet a unique place on which legends continue to be created.


  • It is owned by about thirty families who cannot develop any activity there. For many years there have been goats that have managed to thrive on the sparse vegetation.


  • Next to the islet you can see another smaller one called Es Vedranell. It has a horseshoe shape that forms an inlet known as S'Olleta that serves as a refuge for boats. The maximum height is 117 meters.


  • This scenario lends itself to letting the imagination run wild and has been done by several generations. In him legends are united, and distant histories, that perhaps are true. You don't have to look to check them. enjoy the surroundings.

Playa de Llentia / Llantía


A cove that has risen to fame for a recent monument

  • The descent to Can Solei is difficult. For this reason, we recommend taking extreme care especially for people who are not very agile or who suffer from vertigo.


  • From Sant Josep, take the road to Sant Antoni, past the Sant Agustí junction, on the left, follow the road to Platges de Comte and Cala Bassa. Two km. Before reaching this cove, you must take a dirt road on the left that leads to Cala Codolar. You have to follow this path without turning off, bypassing the turnoff to Cala Codolar. At the end you come to a large house with a white fence, which is on the left, with a limited area where you can park on the right. From there you have to continue on foot close to the fence. At the end of it, on the right, the monument awaits and a little further on, to the right, is Cala Llentia.


  • Guy Laliberté, born in Canada in 1959 began as a musician and street artist. He has been a fire-eater and a stilt walker. In 1982, he began running a summer fair in Quebec from which Cirque du Soleil emerged.


  • Fascinated by the island of Ibiza, this billionaire man, philanthropist, space traveler and always a creator, built his house here which he called Can Soleil.


  • Upon returning from his space travel, he decided to build a monument on his land off the coast. The author is Australian artist Andrew Rogers.


  • The work is called “Time and Space” and it is part of the “Rhytms of Life” collection, made up of fifty monuments distributed throughout the world.


  • In the case of Ibiza, the work is made up of twelve basalt dolmens that surround a central one 24 meters high, crowned by a 23-karat gold leaf plate. The columns are full of engravings and Rodgers claims that their dimensions follow the Finobacci sequence and represent the alignment of the planets around the sun.


  • Near this place and always inside the farm, there is another curious monument. A room with doors and a floor but no walls or a roof.


  • The doors show different engravings and Arabic motifs. With them open and at the right angle you can see a magnificent view of Es Vedrà.


  • Laliberté is involved in other projects in Ibiza, such as his two art galleries "Lune Rouge Ibiza" and "Art Projects Ibiza" that present two annual exhibitions of the most avant-garde artists.


  • It has also partnered with the Adrià brothers to create "Heart", a unique space that mixes the most exclusive cuisine in a private room, with small beach bars where you can try the different cuisines of the world that occupy a terrace where performances and performances take place. live music.

Cala d'Hort


A quiet place for a more relaxed tourism

  • As this beach can only be accessed by private vehicle and parking can be difficult in high season, we advise you that, although many people park in a neighboring stream, they must ensure that the weather is stable because a storm can take their car to high sea. There is a safer area at the top of the hill.


  • To get to Cala d'Hort you have to start from Sant Josep de Talaia, you can take the Es Cubills road or the Sant Antoni road. It is only 10 minutes by car.


  • A secluded beach 150 meters long and between 15 and 25 meters wide. There is service of hammocks, umbrellas, restaurants, a boutique, lifeguards and access for the disabled.

  • From there you can see very close the islets of Es Vedrà and Es Vedranell that hide a world of legends.


  • In the 1990s, a group of businessmen planned to build a golf course and various urbanizations in the area, but there was a significant public reaction that managed to stop the project and that Cala d'Hort was declared a Natural Park.


  • In the surroundings, sparse stands of pine and juniper are frequent. In this environment live birds such as the Audouín's gull, Eleanora's and peregrine's falcons or the Balearic and Cinderella shearwaters.

Santa Gertrudis


The most ecological way to know the island

  • If you are fond of cycling this is the ideal place to enjoy it. We advise you to go to any of the many establishments that offer all types of bikes for rent.


  • If time permits, we recommend that you attend a trotter race. It is a show that most of us only know from movies.


  • The Insular Council has drawn up some 23 tourist routes that allow traveling more than 700 kilometers on roads and paths with little traffic. But you are free to choose your own route.


  • Santa Gertrudis is part of the municipality of Santa Eulària des Riu and is 12 km from Ibiza. From the capital, take the road to Santa Eulària and after the Ca na Negreta neighborhood, turn left onto the road that goes to Santa Gertrudis.


  • This small population was always dedicated to agriculture, especially due to the abundance of water that exists in its subsoil and is stored in pools.


  • But in the 1990s the change came. New buildings began to appear although always adapted to the traditional style and painted white.


  • Currently some of the old traditional houses have been converted into restaurants and both the old and the new houses taverns, bars, boutiques, small hotels… The tobacconist that maintains the appearance of other times stands out.


  • The 18th century church differs from others on the island, due to the yellow and gray stripes painted on the lime. It is of a single ship. There is a chapel that was added in the 20th century.


  • As for the bell tower, tradition says that young people on Sundays got used to climbing to the top to turn and stop the bell and that so much bustle caused the appearance of cracks.


  • A new tower had to be built and it was made taller so that no one could reach the bells. Thus it became the highest on the island. By the way, they play daily except between Holy Thursday and Easter Saturday.


  • On the way out or on the way back, we can also see the San Rafel Racecourse, which houses a traditional sport on the islands: trotter horse racing. The facility is managed by the Consell Insular.


  • In winter the jogging races are held on Sunday nights. In summer on Saturdays. In both cases it is possible to have lunch or dinner on site. Bets are made.


  • The Spanish trotters little known in the rest of the country, are highly appreciated in other European countries, such as France and Great Britain where this type of races are common in which the horses cannot overcome the trot. The races in Ibiza are carried out pulling a "sulky" which is a two-wheeled cart.


  • Another place to contemplate during the walk is the Broll de Buscatell, a 4.5 km valley that follows the course of a torrent that feeds on the water of Es Broll, the most important aquifer on the island. The farming plots follow a system created during the Arab rule and which continues to show its effectiveness.


  • Our penultimate tour of Ibiza will be by bike. It is a magnificent way to discover the interior of an island full of corners where tradition and the present coexist. The route to Santa Gertrudis is of medium difficulty.


  • The rental price of bikes is very varied. From 15 to 40 euros per day.


  • You can also hire a guided tour.

Platja Es Riu de Santa Eulària


A long beach of fine white sand

  • The walk or bike ride from the city center to the beach is highly recommended. The 4 km of Passeig de s'Arameda is a pleasant route. Besides from May to October, except on Wednesdays and Sundays, a hippie market is set up with many offers.


  • The beach is made up of three sandy areas in a row. The first is properly that of Santa Eulària, the second is the beach of Mariners or Es Riu at the mouth of the only river on the island. After crossing the river by a pedestrian walkway, you reach Es Caló de S'Alga, a very hotel area.


  • All the beaches are of fine sand and the sea has the turquoise tone so characteristic of the island. There is the possibility of renting hammocks, umbrellas and skates. As well as practicing nautical sports.


  • The area of the mouth is especially recommended for children because the seabed is shallow and the waters are normally calm.


  • On the river there is a very picturesque little port that is full of canoeists and small boats. Through a bridge you reach the neighboring town of Siesta.


  • To end this four-day trip that will surely be short, we will visit the coast of a city whose historical part we have already known. It is the beach of Santa Eulària des Riu.


  • Free.

Adoro el mar y en mis vacaciones no podía faltar este rico elemento. Es así como indagué sobre una guía, que me brindara este anhelo. Lo primero que hice al llegar fue alquilar un traje de buzo en el centro Squba y me sumergí en la playa de Formentera.
