2018-08-31 San Antonio to Cala Binniras, Ibiza, Islas Baleares, Spain We had a comfortable night moored in Coves Blanques by the port of San Antonio Saturday morning sailing for the local youngsters As we depart we get a wave from our close neighbours The delightful German couple and children are cruising the Med while living aboard their yacht for a couple of years We enjoyed going ashore last night by dinghy and checking out the local nightlife The restaurants overlooking the bay have plenty of customers during the day and evening Looking back to our overnight anchorage in Coves Blanques We continue north west out of the large San Antonio bay passing Cabo Blanch, another pleasant anchorage Spectacular houses with equally spectacular views line the coastline here Cala Salada is one of the most popular bays on the mid western coast of Ibiza Continuing further up the north west coast, we approach the iconic islet Ses Margalides Along the north west coast of Ibiza, the scenery consists mainly of high rugged cliffs We were keen to have a swim on our way up the coast, however there were very few suitable places to drop an anchor because of the depth Finally we arrive at Cala Binirras, another one of our favourite anchorages in Ibiza Cala Binirras is well recognised by the rock resembling Queen Victoria in the cente of the entrance to the bay This delightful small bay is often very crowded, however fortunately we were able to find a suitable anchorage here for the night A tradition here in the bay, usually starting just before sunset, is where a group of drummers start beating their drums for the onset of the sun going down Boats appear to be lined up in the bay as the sunset nears More people arrive to watch and listen to the drummers Finally the sun sets over the horizon and slowly the drummers stop and then cheers from the onlookers can be heard Not long after sunset, dinner is served on the Tangaroa ….. tonight we have a delicious chicken and vegetable green curry Queen Victoria …. an uncanny resemblance!!
