Maybe the least-known face of Ibiza is its hiking routes that walk Ibiza from north to south, and give to the travelers the better panoramic views of the island from the heights.
Now that spring is around the corner, it’s the perfect time to visit the island and this that I am proposing you is a different plan to come close to a very unknown Ibiza, the authentic Ibiza.
Portinatx – Faro des Moscarter
This route is 12 and a half kilometres and it starts from the parking of Portitxol Beach, in Portinatx, and continue towards the lighthouse always following the road close to the cliff.
The lighthouse is the first place you will arrive, and you must leave it to the right and follow the path to the left to enjoy the views of Es Pla de Ses Formigues and Es Illots de Ses Formigues. We continue taking the path around the cliff and the next places we will see are Sa Talaia de Sant Vicent, Ses Formigues and Es Port de Ses Caletes, and after that we will continue until Cala d’en Serra.
We must download to the beach and take the path to the right which become in a paved road until you reach the junction with Sant Joan, Cala Sant Vicent and Portinatx, and we go back to Portinatx again through the main road.
Sant Antoni – Cala Salada
This route is about 12,3 kilometres and it starts from Sant Antoni city council, leaving the port on the left. We will walk following the cliffs along the entire route and the first views we find are of Portmany Bay and Sa Conillera.
The path continues through places like Caló des Moro, Sa Cova de Ses Llagostes, Cala Gració and Cala Gracioneta. When we got here the path seems to end but that’s not true, you can continue by the rock stairs carved in the stones behind the fishermen’s huts.
We keep following the coast path a little bit more until go through Cap Nonó, Sa Foradada and Cala Salada. The road along the cliffs will lead us to Punta Galera.
Sant Josep de Sa Talaia
This route is my favorite because leads us to the highest point of the island and from where you can enjoy the best panoramic and privileged views of the hole island.
The route is about 14 kilometres and it starts from the church of Sant Josep, crossing the road and continuing by the street in front of the church. Here the route starts through a dirt road on the right.
The dirt road will become in a small cobbled path through the forest, giving you the chance to see many natural vegetation of the area. Although some of the uphill sections are challenging, the most path is accessible and pleasant. When you get to the top will have an amazing panoramic view of Ibiza!
My favorite hotel in Ibiza is Agroturismo Sa Talaia, a perfect rural option to combine with a week of nature and hiking.
