Cala d’Hort, IBIZA
This is a gem if you are looking for something quieter as Cala d’Hort is an excellent little beach.
This sandy anchorage exposed to the East winds provides beautiful views of Es Vedra (the mythical home of sirens and sea-nymphs), along with some of the more glorious sunsets of the island. White cliffs topped with lush green foliage surround the turquoise waters and soft, sandy seabed. You will find excellent diving conditions here along with some bars and restaurants on the beach.

WIND & SWELL
The bay faces the south so and is open so not much shelter from southern swells and winds.
ANCHORING / SEABED
There are no mooring buoys available at Cala d’Hort.
There is a swimming section in the central parts of the beach but it there is some space to take your dinghy on shore. Be careful of the rocks as you approach either end of the beach.
Lovely little beach which gets packed in the summer months. Sun loungers available for rent and lots more areas for your towel. A beautiful outlook over to Es Vedra and a lovely place to chill out all day. It is good to know that Cala d’Hort is one of 15 Blue Flag beaches on Ibiza.
On a hot summer’s day, rent a lounge chair and parasol or order a meal on a shaded restaurant table. One side of the beach is filled with softer sand while the other has a rockier terrain. In between, the beach resembles a large golden arc. The waters are often dotted with boats moored offshore. Dive in for a swim or snorkel and explore the underwater world. When the wind picks up the waves, the cove is a perfect place for body surfing.
FOOD & DRINK
There is only the one beach bar.
There are no shops at Cala d’Hort, just the cafe / restaurant.
THINGS TO DO
Sip a sun downer and watch the sun set over Es Vedra island across the water.
There is one road into this area and a very steep hill. Parking is very limited and in the summer there are large queues and long walks to get from your car to the beach. But it’s worth it.
