Cala Corral

This tiny, sheltered cove is home to a small marina where little boats can hide away in inclement weather. There are absolutely no services here, and nothing really by way of a beach. All 15 metres  by 3 metres that I saw were covered in seaweed and rocks, and it doesn't look like there are any plans to change that for the coming summer.

As this cove is mainly used by the Ibicenc fishermen and sailors visiting the marina, I need hardly point out that there is little chance of having a swim here. Whether or not it's illegal, I don't know. What I do know is that it would be foolhardy.
The reason, perhaps the only one, you should visit is to witness the Ibicenc boathouses, known as llauts, most of which seem to blend into the orange-coloured backdrop of the small cliffs that surround them.

One or two of these llauts have been given that extra touch, a lick of paint here, a tiled roof there, but the rest of the concrete, stone, wood and thatch constructions remain as unchanged as they must have been for a century or more.And to say it's tranquil here would be a gross understatement. Don't bring all your beach gear for the reasons already stated, but do come and spend a little time, just to soak up the peace and recharge those tired old batteries. For those keen photographers amongst you the opportunities, while hardly endless, are abundant.

Getting there.
Cala Corral is located about halfway between Cala Codolar and Cala Tarida. If you're coming from Ibiza town or San Antonio, take the road to Sant Josep. From the Santa Eularia or Portinatx area, take the main roads to Sant Josep. It's pretty much the  first turning west of Sant Josep, and you need to follow the road to Cala Tarida. Once there, at the roundabout, head off down and to the right. Parking is limited, but the solitude of the cove means you should have no real problem finding a spot.

If on foot, take one of the many buses to Cala Tarida and it's an easy stroll from there.
