Cala Llenya

Cala Llenya is situated at 10 kilometres from Santa EulÓria des Riu, between Cala Nova and Punta d'en Ribes, as well as next to the village of Can Jordi. The name is given by the thick pine wood which surrounds this natural setting and nearly reaches the coastline.

This u-shaped sea inlet finishes on a triangular beach with fine-grained golden sand. At the rear you can find a thick pine wood and the dry Torrent des Coix, as well as a track, a bit hidden by the vegetation that takes you to the nearby Cala Nova, where there is one of the best camping places of Eivissa.

This sandy area has clear water and the slope is not too steep (at 15 metres from the coast there is a depth of one metre). It is open to the wind from the east which is quite strong, and which normally blows from the sea and makes the swell grow a lot. These conditions explain that you have to be very careful if you want to swim or anchor a boat on the sandy ground. The nearest port facilities are located at Club NÓutic des Canar.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. 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 half a hectometre.

These characteristics explain that the beach of Cala Lenya is not very crowded by local visitors.

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.
