Cala d'es Motons
With its calm atmosphere the tiny beach of Cala d’es Motons is a real insider tip for young people who do not fancy partying, but would like a cool place to hang out. The remote location between two cliffs gives the impression of a secluded little haven. Furthermore. the freshly grilled fish and cocktails on offer in the nicely decorated restaurant make this beach unbelievably special.

Cala d'es Motons - A hidden, rather different beach in the forest

Cala d'es Motons is a very special jewel hidden in a small stretch of land at the side of the bay of Sant Miquel. Sheltered by forested cliffs, the beach is a totally secluded spot in the middle of natural surroundings. From Port de Sant Miquel a roughly 400-metre long path takes you through the forest. A steep descent at the end of the path leads directly to the beach.

Cala d'es Motons is one of the trendy spots of Ibiza and is therefore especially popular with young people who are looking for an alternative to the large family-friendly beaches and exclusive beach clubs. Cala d'es Motons is not big, but there is still enough space for beach beds and sun-loungers. The stony ground is solid and therefore easy to walk on barefooted and to spread out a beach towel on. The water is crystal clear, but care has to be taken on the slippery stones.

The small restaurant offers everything needed for a relaxed day. Tables outside are shaded by overhead nets, wind chimes hang in the trees and soft music comes from the loudspeakers. The restaurant is nicely decorated and is proud of the fact that the food is locally sourced. Whether it's fruit, vegetables or fish, everything is guaranteed to be fresh and there is also an extensive choice of cocktails.

Cala d'es Motons is a place which gets its charm from the extremely calm and relaxed atmosphere.
