Caló d'Hort

Cala d'Hort is situated at 11 kilometres from Sant Josep de sa Talaia, located between Cala Truja and Cap Blanc. From its coast you can see the emerging Escull of Cala d'Hort and the steep, beautiful and enigmatic small islands of es Vedrà (with a maximum height of 382 metres), es Vedranell (with a maximum height of 128 metres) and sa Galera.

This v-shaped sea inlet is characterized by its big size, it is an open coastline, irregular, abrupt and steep, surrounded by high cliffs populated by pine trees and scrubland, and the beach is covered by a quite fine-grained white sand. The winds are gentle, aswell as the slope (at 35 metres from the coast there is a depth of one and a half metres), aswell as crystal clear water on a sandy ground which invite you to dive.

The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are good in this cove which is sheltered by the vertical cliffs. This fact explains that it is a good place to be protected from the air currents from the east. The bay is exposed to the winds from the southwest-west-northwest and east.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs and the deviations. The last part has to be done on a very steep road with a slope of 15 percent. The private car can be left on a free parking area in the surroundings.

These characteristics explain that the beach is not too crowded by local visitors and tourists.

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.
