Cala Nova

Cala Nova is situated at six kilometres from Santa EulÓria des Riu, between Esculls des Canar (the navigator is recommended to avoid passing between this coast and the reef with his boat) and Cala Llenya, as well as next to the nearby village of La Joya.
This beautiful isolated and virgin sea inlet is divided into two bays which are both not too big. At the rear, at about three hectometres, there is one of the best camping places of Eivissa, as well as a thick pine wood that surrounds the coast.

This coastal track has fine-grained golden sand, and the slope is quite gentle (at 50 metres from the coast there is a depth of only two metres).

This sandy area has clear water and 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 1,3 kilometres.

These characteristics explain that the beach of Cala Nova is not very crowded by tourist 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.
