2018-08-25 Es Calò, Isla Formentera to Cala d’Hort, Ibiza, Islas Baleares, Spain

We wake up to quite an overcast morning for a change

Late morning we decide pull up our anchor and slowly make our way back to the main island of Ibiza
Heading back up the east coast of Islas Formentera and S’Espalmador we pass many vessels on anchor in the beautiful bays, some larger than others!!
Titania, a 73m luxury motor mega yacht and is available for charter for up to 12 guests. It was built in 2006 and refitted in 2018. Apparently it is owned by a billionaire who was the founder of Phones4U …… anyone interested in a charter…..!!
Once again we pass Illa des Penjats, the southern most islet of Ibiza with it’s conspicuous lighthouse, which is one of the oldest in the area
With the sun shining brightly now we pass several boats heading out to the popular islands south of Ibiza, where we have just spent the past few days
Once again we approach the coast of Southern Ibiza
A very popular anchorage for the rich and famous is off the exclusive area of Es Cubells on the western side of the south coast of Ibiza
We approach the two islands, Isla de es Vedrà and Isla de es Vedranell, on the south western tip of Ibiza
Opposite the islands is the historical landmark of Sa Pedrera, where stone was once quarried in the 16th century and rock formations and faces were carved out of the stone cliffs by man …. unfortunately we did not get to see them

We soon arrive at one of our favourite anchorages in the Balearics, called Cala d’Hort
This bay has one of the most iconic beaches in Ibiza, located on the southwest of the municipality of Sant Josep
We are very fortunate to find a suitable anchorage very close to the buoyed off swimming area of the bay
We are not alone in the popular bay as there are always plenty of other visitors here by boat
Amazing quaint boat sheds line the shore between the hilltop restaurant and the beach
Cala d’Hort has three restaurants, two by the beach and the other one on the hillside
More boats arrive during the afternoon
We head off for our usual swimming routine!!

The wooden boat sheds look amazing along the shoreline
The steps lead to the elevated restaurant overlooking the bay

Early evening there are still many people on the beach enjoying  the sun, sand and the water
Dinner tonight in the best restaurant in the bay …. aboard the Tangaroa
We enjoy a fabulous fresh tomato and chilli pasta dish from our menu tonight!!
Quite a superb sunset over one of the islands

Later we have a full moon appear to finish a great day!!
