Caló d’Es Porcs / Cala Es Canaret, IBIZA
Es Canaret is a secluded, private beach that doesn’t appear on many guide books or maps. It’s close to Sant Joan de Labritja, in the north of Ibiza.
It used to be near impossible to access, as you could only enter through the tower of a private house, but in recent times the owners have created a path so that visitors have access to the beach. It used to be surrounded by pine trees, but a fire in 2010 burned down much of the area.
