‘Calas’ & Sunsets

The west coast of Sant Josep is known for its beautiful sunsets and its fantastic white sandy beaches.

From South to North-West, starting with Es Codolar near the airport, we continue to Es Bol Nou beach. Locals call this one Sa Caleta which is quite confusing as that is actually the little fishermen’s cove by Es Bol Nou. You will be able to tell when you see the small cliffs formed by orange toned rocks. Nearby you have one of Ibiza’s Phoenician sites. It’s located on a small peninsula, on the southern coast of the island. Sa Caleta was an urban-type settlement, it could be compared with similar sites in the south of the Iberian peninsula.

The origins of the settlement go back to the latter part of the 8th century B.C. although it may be that initially Sa Caleta may had been some kind of provisional and seasonal base for both economic and geographic expeditions in the Pitiusas (Ibiza and Formentera).

Partly covered with pebbles and located inside a large bay facing south, we reach Cala Jondal, famous for the lively and cool beach clubs and nice restaurants settled on its shores.

Then we arrive to one of the hot spots in Ibiza, Es Cubells, Es Vedrà and Cala d’Hort.

Cala Vadella, offers many possibilities for the practice of water sports, but it also has a wide range of services, restaurants, bars, and shops.

Cala Tarida is another of the most popular beaches on the island. Very touristy, also with plenty of alternative entertainment, services and restaurants.

Next is one of the most famous beaches in Ibiza, Platges de Comte which competes with other areas to see the most spectacular sunsets on the island and probably in the World. On the horizon you can see the islets Illots de Ponent. A true paradise for kayaking or boat excursions.

And finally the beach of Cala Bassa, a true natural pool, considered one of the most beautiful beaches on the island thanks to the transparency of its waters, the fine quality of the sand and the lush juniper, pine and tamarind forest that surrounds it. There is a boat trip from Sant Antoni to the beach, that it’s highly recommendable.
