Pou Des Lleo

North East, Ibiza, Spain

The quiet, idyllic beach of Canal d’en Marti (Pou des Lleo) is a pebble-and-sand strewn inlet in the shape of a horseshoe. Surrounded by low-lying rust-red cliffs and fishing huts, the interesting rock formations make for some good snorkeling around the bay. The only facilities are a tiny snack bar open until sunset and beach restaurant which offers paella and fresh fish at market prices.

Who goes there?

A local favourite for its half-hidden location.

When to go

Located off-the-beaten-path, Pou des Lleo is rarely busy, and easily enjoyed at any hour of the day.

White Ibiza loves

Snorkelling! The underwater scenery is unbeatable – though the beautiful scenic countryside also makes for a gorgeous walk!

How to get there


North-east of Santa Eulalia


Reached only by car, follow signposts north from San Carlos. A lone, country road for 1 km cuts northwest inland from Cala Boix, until you come to a signposted junction for the diminutive bay of Pou des Lleo. Parking is limited, but it doesn’t usually fill up.


From Ibiza Town: 30-minute drive.
From San Antonio: 40-minute drive.
