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 Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
