Type of beach sand
Cala Olivera

Cala Olivera is situated at 3,8 kilometres from Cala Llonga, between Pont Foradat and Clot d'en Llaudis, as well as next to the village of Roca Llisa, and it has a low influx of visitors.
This beach is characterized by the fact that it has a virgin setting, it is quite small and calm. It is semicircular, surrounded by steep rocky sides, as well as sheltered by a small island which is situated in the centre of this bay. The beach is covered by coarse-grained white sand and gravel. The orientation is toward east, and the wind blows gently from the south-southeast.

The fact that the cove is sheltered from the swell explains that this stretch is good for swimming, although the slope is quite steep ľat 25 metres from the coast there is a depth of 1,8 metres- as well as fro anchoring boats. The ground is covered by rocks and seaweed toward the interior.

Between Cala Olivera and Cap des Llibrell there is the inlet of Salt d'en Serra. This bay is surrounded by cliffs, with winds blowing from the east-southeast-south-southwest and it finishes on a small beach with pebbles, where you can anchor a boat on a sandy ground and there the depth ranges from 5 to 10 metres.

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 the village of Roca Llisa, at 2,2 kilometres from this beach.

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.
