Cala Blanca

 

 

This tiny little beach is possibly the most inaccessible on the entire island. There are no facilities whatsoever, but if it's solitude, good swimming and thoroughly rugged views you're seeking, then Cala Blanca is well worth the effort.

It's a pebble beach, surrounded on all sides by hulking cliffs, and large fallen boulders lie all about. You'll have to fend for yourselves, obviously, so take your own food and plenty of liquids.

I might add, due to recent information received, that it's also one of the unofficial nudist beaches of Ibiza, so there, you can't say you haven't been warned. Swimsuit optional.

Getting there.

If you have access to a boat, then head out of Cala Llonga and bear left, sorry, to port. It's the next cove. Easy.

The best way to get there is on foot, though, but be warned, it's not the easiest of strolls. You need to get to a place called Val Verde, which is on the back road between Cala Llonga and Siesta. Find the calle de las lavandas; there's an enormous Val Verde sign at the entrance to this road, and follow it all the way up. Park somewhere out of the way when you find the roundabout at the top. The dirt track should be obvious, it's big enough for a 4x4, but you're probably better off walking from here on in. At the first fork, keep to the left. Going right click here

There is only one path, so there's very little of getting lost. The further downhill you progress, the rockier the way becomes, like you're walking on a river-bed (you probably are, come to that). Go past the shell of the little white car. No, I couldn't tell you how it got there either.

And then you'll come out into a little circular area, note the Xmas baubles hanging on a branch that sticks out of the rock to your right. Though I've never met the occupant, it would appear you've arrived in some hippy's den (take a peek under the bush, you may spot his little straw hat).

Onwards then, along the river bed. A few more minutes will bring you to a small clearing with the occasional pile of rocks, artily arranged. To your right, the tunnel! Wait, don't go in there yet.

First, take the trail to the left, because you're about sixty seconds from one seriously powerful view. Through the overgrown path and into another open area strewn with more rock-balancing. If you go down to the next level, and you've come this far, after all, you'll be faced with a windy, rugged, and thoroughly refreshing sight of the sea through this U-shaped cliff-face. Talk about a photo-op.

You're ready now for the cave. Actually a man-made tunnel carved through the rocks, it was apparently built during the civil war, for reasons this beach-hunter can only guess at. It's home now to more of those little rock piles and to whatever else our hippies might get up to after dark.

Once you reach the end of this Shelob's lair, you'll be faced with a climb down to the beach that only a monkey or a mountain-goat would look at seriously. It is possible to get down to the beach from these dizzy heights, but your reporter was not that day in a particularly intrepid mood.

Now then, the return journey. Remember that fork at the top of the road I told you not to take. Well, by now you should be ready to appreciate it. Once you've walked nearly all the way back to the top of the track, take the time for a little detour, it's a mere five minutes out of your way, but trust me, a worthwhile five minutes. Take the fork. You remember the one on your right I told you to ignore on your way down? Now, as you travel up this track, it'll be on your left. You may be tuckered out from your uphill trip, but trust me, this last little detour will bring the strength back to your legs and your lungs. Follow the track for a couple of minutes, 'til it turns into a footpath, now just keep going. You are now in for the view of a lifetime. When you get to the end of this track, take a look down, to your left. You're looking over Cala Blanca now. Two minutes out of your day, you see, yet worth a lifetime of experience.
And by the way, once you've discovered all these little secrets, it may be tempting to pass them on. A word of advice. Just don't. Let's keep this one tiny piece of Ibiza between us, okay?
