Sa Caleta - Sunset at the red cliff
The main feature of Sa Caleta is a red cliff which stretches along the whole length of the beach. When the sky is blue and the sun is shining, the red colour of the cliff is especially vivid. With the pine trees just above and the deep blue Mediterranean Sea below, this combines to create a unique display of colour.
This small bay in the south of the island is surrounded by rocks and forests and is about 20 minutes by car from Ibiza town. Near the car park is a gap in the cliffs, so that the way to the beach is not steep and there is a short wooden pathway here which leads almost to the water’s edge.
The atmosphere at this small, narrow beach is relaxed and many locals of the island come here to soak up the sun and cool off in the clear water. Sa Caleta is busy most of the time and it is mainly young people who come here, but all age groups are to be found here.
Sa Caleta is partly sandy and partly stony. You can lie directly on the beach or hire a sun-lounger and parasol. There are also places among the rocks near the water.
There is a restaurant situated between the car park and beach. Its speciality is rice dishes, but you can find also find other regional dishes on the menu at typical local prices.
A particular highlight of Sa Caleta is observing the sunset in the right weather conditions. Whether it is from up on the cliffs or from the rocks at the water, everywhere in Sa Caleta you can have a great view of the sun going down.
