Es Cavallet

Es Cavallet is situated at 10 kilometres from Eivissa, located between Punta de sa Torre (tower of ses Portes, 16th century, over the non navigable strait of es Freus, which separates Eivissa from Formentera) and sa Sal Rossa, as well as below Sant Francesc de sestina and the proximity of ses Salines. This coastal stretch has officially been declared nudist, Zona de Especial Protección para las Aves by the European Union and it belongs to Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès Ses Salines.

This beautiful and nearly virgin coastal corner is very long, it has fine-grained white sand, the orientation is toward east, and the wind blows gently from the sea. The slope is very gentle (at 50 metres from the coast there is a depth of only 1,7 metres), and there is a system of dunes fixed by pine trees, bushes and scrubland, as well as saline ponds populated by migratory birds. The beach is not very crowded by tourists.

The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are safe if the weather is good. The navigator should be very careful when approaching the coast because of the emerging rocks. The best area to anchor your boat is in the north of the beach, on a sandy ground, with a depth of five metres.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs and the deviations. The last part has do be done on a track. The private car can be left on a free parking area in the surroundings. You can also reach this beach with the public transport or by bicycle. The nearest bus stop is located at seven hectometres.

Municipality information Sant Josep de sa Talaia

The municipality of Sant Josep de sa Talaia occupies nearly all the southern area of Eivissa, and is the biggest municipality of Pitiüses by area (158,95 km2), with a coastline of 80 kilometres (which goes from Sant Antoni to Platja d'en Bossa). The name is given by the mount with the same name, which is the highest of the island (475 metres high) and located nearly in the geographic centre.

This territory includes the rural villages, characterized by the medieval churches, which are very typical and interesting, Sant Agustí des Vedrà, Sant Jordi de ses Salines, Sant Francesc de sestina, Mare de Déu del Carme or es Cubells and the village with the same name, which was formed in the 13th century around a church.

Its cultural variety includes the rural Punic-Roman settlement of ses Paises de Cala d'Hort, the Phoenician village of sa Caleta, the defence towers of ses Portes, d'en Comte or d'en Rovira, des Cap de Jueu and des Carregador de Sal (17th and 18th centuries), Cova Santa (natural cave which is 25 metres deep, with stalactites and stalagmites formed by the effect of the water during thousands of years). You can also see a performance of ball pagès (typical dance), an ancestral dance with typical dresses and jewels which the dancers show. You should try the delicious rice and rock-fish based dishes, as well as the exquisite pastries, and you should walk and cycle through the mountains.
The municipality has 21 beaches.
