Hello From Ibiza -Part 2

September 28, 2004, 9:45 pm

We just returned to the resort after a gorgeous evening and decent dinner in Santa Eularia del Riu. Today we spent the whole day driving from beach to beach, starting on the northwest side of the island, just north of Sant Antoni, continuing towards the north side of the island and ending up in Santa Eularia.

The first we visited was La Salada, just north of Sant Antoni, a place only reached via a very stony road. After parking the car we had to walk another 10 or 15 minutes and we reached a very secluded beach with rocky platforms where a few people (mostly nudists) were sunning themselves. The view towards the sea included a rocky island off the coast – what an amazing vista!

We continued on through the interior of the island and enjoyed the hilly, rather quiet road. Then we reached Sant Miquel, and the Port de Sant Miquel which is a very beautiful little town. The next beach, Cala de Benirras, is also very beautiful with a rocky outcrop in the middle of the bay. The scenery with the coastal hills, rocky outcrops and the sea is just absolutely stunning.

We continued on towards Portinatx and visited several beaches there, again some of them with rocky outcrops situated in the various bays. Then we made our way to Sant Joan de Labritja to Cala Vicent which again is a stunning beach looking out toward the island of Tagomago. We spent a bit of time there, but the wind blowing in from the sea was really cool so we packed up and kept visiting and photographing beach after beach just north of Santa Eularia.

All the while we commented on how small this island is and how much immense beauty there is concentrated here. For dinner we went to Santa Eularia which has one of the most beautiful seafront promenades that I have ever seen.

We had a 3 course dinner (menu del dia) at the Bar Sinatra Restaurant which appeared to be a very upscale place. A regular soup of the day was listed on the menu for 6.25 Euros! We on the other hand had a nice dinner with appetizer, main course and free drink (including wine) for 10.50 Euros. My grilled pork chops were not the absolutely best, or at least tastiest, but for the amount we paid we got a great value.

After a little icecream at the sea front we decided to get going to get ready for our big trip to the island of Formentera tomorrow.
