Cala Pada

Cala Pada is situated at 3,2 kilometres from Santa EulÓria des Riu, located between es Niu Blau-s'Estanyol and en Marc˙s-Cala s'Argamassa, as well as between the villages of Can Sansˇ and Punta ArabÝ.

This quiet and comfortable u-shaped sea inlet is quite big, it has clear fine-grained sand, the slope is gentle (at 35 metres from the coast there is a depth of only two metres) and a breakwater that divides the beach into two parts and is used as a jetty.

This sandy area with transparent water is open to the wind from the south-east, which normally blows from the sea and is quite moderate.

The biggest part of the bay is sandy, where you are recommended to dive on the surface. The nearest port facilities are located at Port Esportiu de Santa EulÓria des Riu.

These natural characteristics explain that it is a quiet coastal corner and the ideal safe beach for families with children. Cala Pada is not too crowded by local visitors and tourists. 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 or by bicycle (short distance and not much difference in level). The nearest bus stop is located at three hectometres. There is a sea line between es Canar and Santa EulÓria or Eivissa.

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.
