Today we woke up wanting to visit the Municipality of San José, probably one of the most beautiful in Ibiza. Their beaches dazzle anyone who treads them for the first time and their natural wealth is indisputable.
If there is a place that you can not ignore in this area, it is the Ses Salines Natural Park. Whatever the age, it always offers something worth visiting. From August to October you can stroll through the park and contemplate how the flamencos make a stopover here before embarking on the flight again. In summer Saltworks is one of the busiest beaches on the island. Celebrities, tourists and residents are concentrated in it to take a bath in its calm waters. Following this extends It's Cavallet, a beach known for its gay atmosphere and for being one of the few nudists in Ibiza.
A little history
Once you leave the park, get closer to the beach It's Bol Nou, better known as sa Caleta, it's a great option. What distinguishes this cove from most is the fact that it is surrounded by high reddish cliffs. It is one of the favorites for families and here you can give yourself a famous mud bath.

The coast of San José is also characterized by different defensive towers which were once used to monitor the entrance to the island. Specifically in Salinas you can visit the Torre des Carregador, the Sal Rossa in Playa d'en Bossa or the d'en Rovira in Cala Conta. But if there is one famous throughout Ibiza is the Tower of Savinar, popularly known as the Pirate. To get to it you will not walk a path of roses, but we assure you that it is worth a try. The views from this location will leave you speechless. At 2013 was elected 'The best corner of the Balearic Islands' by the Repsol Guide There is nothing!
It's Cubells and San Jose
Continuing our getaway to San Jose, a good option would be to visit the village of It's Cubells. Taking a walk around the center will not take you more than five minutes, since it is extremely small, but getting closer to its cliffs to contemplate the coast is a joy. They say that their church is one of the most beautiful in the place. You can pause and take something in front of her, a pretty picture.
If you do not want to deviate from your path, continue to San José. There you will be surprised by your imposing church and its charm will dazzle you immediately. Visit your little shops and eat something in one of their restaurants, you will need it if you want to face our next proposal: visit sa Pedrera (Atlantis).
Going down Sa Pedrera requires some physical fitness as well as some good shoes
From this area the stones were extracted with which the wall of Ibiza was constructed. Access to the coast is not suitable for those who are accustomed not to move from the sofa. You must go down a mountainous path, sandy and quite steep until you can swim in its crystal clear waters. Once down you will witness the majesty of its cliffs, carved by man and eroded by the sea. Remember to wear comfortable shoes, patience, some food and liters and liters of water.
Beaches and sunsets
If you do not see yourself in top form to go down to Sa Pedrera, continue towards cala d'Hort, one of the most photographed pictures of Ibiza. There you will meet the famous Islets of Es Vedra and it's Vedranell. A magical place full of legends of all kinds in which the sunsets are authentic gifts of nature. One of the best things you can do here is to eat a good paella or a tasty bullit of peix ibicenco. It is typical to do so in the El Carmen Restaurant with It's Boldadó or Restaurant Cala d'Hort. The three have views that will captivate you.

In addition, in one of its coves you will find in summer the picturesque ecological beach bar Cala Escondida, one of the busiest to enjoy a beautiful sunset.
The beaches of San José are perfect for water sports. The kayak or paddle surf They are, from our point of view, two of the best you can practice. Thanks to them, you will be able to discover corners of the inaccessible Ibicencan coast on foot.
