Cala Mastella

Cala Mastella is situated at 4,8 kilometres from Sant Carles de Peralta, between Punta d'en Ribes and es Calˇ Roig, as well as next to the village of Can Jordi.

This rectangular, narrow and closed sea inlet finishes on a beach with fine-grained clear sand, and it is very small. It is surrounded by a thick pine wood and by very steep rocks on the sides, whereas the rear is the mouth of the Torrent Socarrat when it rains. There is a small wetland with cane and reeds in the surroundings.

On the right side there is a trail that takes you to the nearby Cala Llenya. On the natural breakwater of the opposite side there is a trail that takes to a good restaurant.

This sandy area has a gentle slope (at 40 metres from the coast there is a depth of only two metres) on a sandy ground next to the coast. Nevertheless as the distance to the coast gets bigger, the rocks appear, covered by seaweed at about 6 to 12 metres. These underwater conditions invite you to dive, even on the surface.

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, and the last hectometre has to be done on a track in bad conditions. You can also reach the beach by bicycle.

These characteristics explain that the beach of Cala Mastella is not too crowded by tourists.

Municipality information Santa EulÓria des Riu

The municipality of Santa EulÓria des Riu is situated in the easternmost area of Eivissa. The origin of the name has to be searched in the 16th century, when the church was built, which is dedicated to the saintliness which gives the name to this municipality and around which this village grew. Before that, the village was called Xarc (ôeastö) during the Muslim period and Quartˇ des Rei during the 14th century.

The 11 kilometres of the only river of the Balearic Island, Riu de Santa EulÓria, irrigates this territory. This river, which has no water during the dry period, has defined the development of this area until the 18th century because the water used to move the flour mills located below Puig de Missa (52 metres high) and irrigated the agricultural land of Horta de Santa EulÓria. Nowadays the economy is lead by the tourism in this municipality that concentrates a big part of the touristy offer of Eivissa.

The coastal area suffered the attacks of the Magreb and Turkish pirates since the 15th century, which destroyed in the following century the first fortified church, which was used as a defence against these pirates. In the 18th century the actual configuration of this village began: parroquia de Santa EulÓria des Riu, Sant Carles des Peralta, Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera and Jes˙s, as well as the town divided into two areas, the old town (Puig de Missa) and the more modern area next to the coast, Vila Nova.
The municipality has 17 beaches.
