This emblematic cove in the north of Ibiza is located 7.5 kilometres from Sant Miquel de Balansat, between the Cova de s’Orenga and Blanca points, under the gaze of the Puig des Guixar mountain (189 m). It is a deep, unspoilt inlet of sea shaped like a “u”, that ends on dry land in a medium-sized slope. The sand is a sun-toasted colour, the slope gentle and the waters extremely transparent, all of which makes it an ideal beach for children and the elderly. The cave is surrounded by cliffs crowned with a lush pine wood.
This estuary has an islet in its mouth, Cavall Bernat, which can be circumnavigated. In summer, the magical sunset draws numerous visitors. In one spot there are the remains of the old fishermen’s jetty which, along with other traditional constructions, lend even more charm to the scene, if indeed that is possible.
The cove is the starting point for several excursions, such as the one that runs along the path linking this beach to the nearby port of Sant Miquel, which passes by the cave of Can Marçà, used as a refuge for smugglers in the past.
