Sa Caleta, also known as Es Bol Nou, is a virgin beach located south of the island just 9 km from Sant Josep. The seabeds of Sa Caleta are very rocky and abundant in seagrass meadows, which makes the area count on abundant marine life and exceptionally clean and clear waters providing very good visibility. If you like diving or traveling with kids, do not forget your goggles because this is a perfect place for snorkeling or diving.
It is a beach less frequented by tourists, which gives it even more charm. The most frequent people there are the owners of boathouses who spend the day working with networks, or chatting with their families on weekends.
Traditionally it was used as a natural harbor since it has a large number of boatyard houses where fishermen keep their typical Ibizan boats called “yaguts”. The cove is formed by rocks and red sand and these old buildings or docks are fitted in its rocks, the cove is surrounded by deep green forest that contrasts with the color of its waters.
At about 200m from Sa Caleta we find that for many it is the best restaurant in Ibiza: Sa Caleta Restaurant built in a historical sailor shelter by a fishermen son.
