Cala Carbó

Cala Carbó is situated at eight kilometres from Sant Josep de sa Talaia, between Puig de s'Oratge and Cala Truja, as well as below the village with the same name and Puig Pelat (245 metres high). The name is given by the wood used in this natural setting by the wood cutters because of the coal. It has still thick vegetation. This arch-shaped beautiful sea inlet is quite small, the beach is covered by quite fine-grained golden sand, the slope is very gentle, it has crystal clear water, a sandy ground with some rocks and seaweed which invite you to dive on the surface or with oxygen, and it is sheltered by a quite big rocky cliff.
This sea inlet (80 metres large at the entrance) has good marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats. It is exposed to the wind from west-northwest. The navigator is recommended to anchor in the first half of the cove, on a sandy ground with seaweed and rocks, where there is a depth of four to six metres. In the northern area there is a small jetty.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs and the deviations. The private car can be left on a free parking area in the surroundings. You can also reach this beach with the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located at two kilometres (Cala Vedella) and the rest has to be done on foot.

These characteristics explain that the beach is not too crowded.

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.
