2018-08-27 Cala d’Hort to Cala Conta, Ibiza, Islas Baleares, Spain

After a pleasant couple of days in Cala d’Hort we decide to have a change of scenery
As we leave the bay we pass Restaurant Es Boldado where we dined the previous evening
Cala d’Hort is one of our favourite anchorages in Ibiza
As we continue north up the west coast we pass numerous large white villas perched high up on the cliffs
Every time we pass these villas with their conspicuous domes, they remind us of Greek synagogues
Just north of Cala d’Hort is a small sheltered beach called Carla Carbo Beach
Further north we pass the popular holiday spot called Cala Vedella
There are some wonderful small sheltered sandy beaches all around Ibiza
Another of our favourite spots on the coast is Cala Tarida
Cala Tarida is also one of the most popular anchorages on the west coast of Ibiza
The crystal clear turquoise water is great for swimming
Cala Tarida is well developed with several upmarket holiday apartment blocks
There are also exclusive restaurants and bars overlooking the water in Cala Tarida
A cluster of typical Balearic boat sheds can be found nestled into a sheltered part of the bay of Cala Tarida
Continuing up the coast we stop in the attractive small bay of Cala Codolar
Cala Codolar with it’s crystal clear waters again is a great place to have a swim
The narrow quaint bay is flanked by the most amazing rock formations
After another refreshing swim we continue up the coast
Overlooking the sea just south of Cala Llentia is a sculpture called “Time and Space”created by artist Andrew Rogers
Approaching Cap des Bou and Cala Conta
A spectacular mansion situated on Cap des Bou …. believed to be owned by a wealthy Russian businessman
We briefly stop on the southern side of the very popular busy Platages de Comte
As there is a shallow sandbar between the nearby islands and the coast we head around the islands to get to the northern anchorage
It is amazing what one sees regularly in the Mediterranean !!
We pass through between Illa Sa Conillera and Illa des Bosc using our depth sounder as there are also shallow areas between the islands
The northern anchorage of Cala Conta is perfect for the pleasant weather conditions we have been having
Cala Conta is one of the most popular beaches in Ibiza
Although the beach is quite narrow, there is a sand spit that extends out which is prime position for sun worshipers
Water sports of all kinds are happening here!!
We decide to anchor here for the night
Nearby are the typical boat sheds built into the landscape
The water in this bay is the clearest you can find in the Balearics
As sunset approaches, groups of people gather by the restaurants and along the shore to get a good vantage point to watch the sun go down
Sunsets often are quite spectacular here in the Balearics
