Moderate hike along the coast: from beach to beach in the south of Ibiza

On the hiking route from Playa d'en Bossa to Es Cavallet beach, you can enjoy the special beauty of Ibiza's coastal landscape. At around eight kilometres long, the hike takes an average of two hours. However, allowing a little more time is advisable, as there are numerous hidden coves along the way - the ideal opportunity for a quick refreshment in between. The Ses Salines nature reserve with its numerous traditionally managed salt pans, which you will pass along the way, is a particular highlight of this hiking route. When you arrive at the beach of Es Cavallet, you have the opportunity to indulge in culinary delights in one of the exclusive beach bars and restaurants and enjoy the view of the surrounding dunes and pine trees as well as the azure blue Mediterranean Sea.

In the south of Ibiza, in addition to Playa d'en Bossa and Es Cavallet, there are also a number of unknown beaches and bays where you can soak up the natural beauty of the island in a tranquil atmosphere. In our article about the southern region of Ibiza, the property consultants at Engel & Völkers introduce you to the picturesque towns of Cala Moli, Cala Tarida and Cala Bassa!

San José to Sa Talaia: enjoy the breathtaking view from Ibiza's highest mountain

The path from San José to the summit of Sa Talaia in the south of the island is one of the most popular hiking routes on the island. This is no wonder, as Ibiza's highest mountain at 475 metres offers visitors an unforgettable island panorama. The easily accessible hiking route starts in the church square of San José and leads through dense, shady pine forests, where Ibiza's unique flora and fauna are in full bloom. Once you reach your destination, you will be greeted by a unique view of the glittering Mediterranean Sea and the rolling hills - on a clear day, you may even catch a glimpse of the other islands in the Balearic group. Once you have completed the descent towards Cala Tarida, you can take the bus back to the traditional Ibizan village of San José. Depending on your pace, you should allow around two and a half to four hours for this slightly challenging 15-kilometre hike.

Ibiza not only offers ideal conditions for nature lovers and outdoor sports enthusiasts: the island's characteristic lifestyle, which is characterized by exclusivity as well as local traditions and customs, attracts people from all over the world year after year. This unique combination also makes Ibiza a sought-after property location. Would you also like to buy a spacious villa, a charming apartment or a spacious finca in one of Ibiza's fantastic locations?
