Cala Saladeta

Cala Salada is situated at four kilometres from Sant Antoni de Portmany, located between sa Foradada and Cala Llosar, as well as next to the village of sa Galera. From its coast you can see Illa Conillera, which is the small island with the biggest size of Eivissa and which can be visited and it is said that the witches of Sant Antoni de Portmany used to take from here the herbs and essences for the spells in the night of San Juan.

Cala Salada and Cala Saladeta belong to the same u-shaped sea inlet, open between the cliffs. The one we are talking about is located next to the right side and the adjacent on the opposite. Both beaches are connected by a trail which follows the coast (there is a fantastic panoramic view of this natural setting).

This beach is characterized by a not too big size, the sand is quite fine-grained and golden, the water is crystal clear, the orientation toward west, and the beach is surrounded by pine trees.

The centre of this sea inlet, at one hectometre from the coast, has good marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats, the depth ranges from four to five metres, on a sandy ground with seaweed.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The last part of the road is quite steep and sinuous. You can park your private car for free in the surroundings. These characteristics explain that the beach is not very crowded.

Municipality information Sant Antoni de Portmany

The municipality of Sant Antoni de Portmany is situated in the west of Eivissa and includes the village with the same name (administrative centre), Sant Rafel de sa Creu (Zona d'Interès Artesanal), Sant Mateu d'Albarca (interesting for the wine production), Santa Agnès de Corona (almond tree landscape) and Buscastell-Forada (water source es Broll de Buscatell).

The name Portmany is given by the Latin word Portus Magnus (“big and important harbour”), and it was called Quartó (“fourth”) de Portmany after the conquest of Pitiüses by king Jaume I d'Aragó (13th century), because he divided Eivissa and Formentera in four areas.

The tourism and other complete facilities for Pitiüses lead the economy since the sixties of the 20th century, replacing the traditional agricultural, farming and fishing activities.
The cultural variety includes the paintings in the cave of ses Fontanelles (sa Cova des Vi), ses Torres d'en Lluc (fortress), Capella de Santa Agnès and the peculiar Església de Sant Antoni de Portmany. This church has a triple function since the 14th century until nowadays, it is a place for praying, defence and social life. It was the shelter for the portmanyins from the continuous pirate attacks. It has no windows at all; a big tower with two guns to shot toward the nearby Illa de sa Conillera (a small island) and from where boiling oil was poured; iron entrance doors, impossible to burn, with an enormous cross-beam and a well with drinking water in the interior for the sieges.
The municipality has 11 beaches.
