Presiding at the bottom of a rolling green hill, just like the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, sits Cala D’Hort, one of Ibiza’s most magical and laidback beaches. The arc-shaped golden beach boasts uninterrupted front row seats to one of Ibiza’s most beautiful natural spectacles, the island of Es Vedra, a rocky limestone formation jutting out of the sea as if it were superimposed on the water.
Who goes there?
Very popular with European families, young couples and plenty of blissed out Ibicenco retirees, who’ve probably been visiting this exact spot their whole life!
When to go
The beach is less crowded in June and September and there’s limited parking available at Cala D’Hort so the earlier you arrive the better – it’s a long hot walk up that hill after a day on the beach otherwise!
White Ibiza loves
Watching the sunset over Es Vedra. Rumour has it the island is one of the most magnetic points in the world, and it’s times like these you can literally feel the energy emanating from the rock.
How to get there
On the southwest side of the island and directly opposite the islands of Es Vedra and Es Vedranell.
Follow the signs to Cala Carbo and when you reach the final T intersection, take a right-hand turn and follow it all the way to the bottom of the hill.
From Ibiza Town: 20-minute drive.
From San Antonio: 20-minute drive.
