2018-09-06 Cala Portinatx to San Antonio, Ibiza, Islas Baleares, Spain As the weather conditions were not suitable to make a crossing back to mainland Spain, we decide to have the breeze behind us and head back down the west coast of Ibiza for a few days As we leave Portinatx, at the entrance to the bay we pass a very popular anchorage called Es Portitxol which is sheltered by a tiny islet The prominent black and white striped lighthouse called Far des Moscarter can be seen to the east as we leave Portinatx With developing overcast conditions we pass Cala Es Canaret where we spent several days enjoying the bay As we continue south west back down the coast of Ibiza, we come across a beautiful small bay by Cap de Sa Galera With only room for one boat in the small bay we continue back down the rugged coastline With the sun appearing once again we enjoy the wonderful scenery The north west coast of Ibiza is very rugged with quite a spectacular coastline Again we pass the tiny islet called Ses Margalides which is situated not far off the coast We approach Cala Salada which would be one of the most popular beaches on the west coast of Ibiza Traditional wooden boat sheds line the southern shore of Cala Salada Reddish cliffs surround the attractive large popular bay The beaches here are extremely crowded in summer Stopping briefly for a swim we continue our journey back down the coast Arriving back in the familiar Cala Bassa we were keen to dive for more tiny abalone shells for our grand daughters Ric proudly shows off his haul of cute shells which seem to be abundant in this bay Cala Bassa is one of the most popular beach resorts on the west coast of Ibiza Later in the afternoon we slowly make our way back across the large bay to San Antonio San Antonio is the largest town on the west coast of Ibiza After joining numerous other boats anchoring in the bay near the entrance to the port, we head ashore for dinner Amazing clouds in the distance!!! We join the crowds assembled for another one of the iconic sunsets There are very few seats available in the restaurants and bars along the shoreline Later in the evening this quiet cafe will become a busy nightclub Finally the sunset approaches and the cameras start clicking!! It is party time on the deck of one of the large boats in the harbour We have a drink in one of the bars before heading off to our favourite restaurant in the town Arriving at 45 Millas after a pleasant 10 minute stroll from the harbour Once again we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the delightful Restaurant 45 Millas Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
