On the western slope of Sant Josep and about 8 km from the town centre we find this well-known beach where we will enjoy an exciting snorkel.
Cala Vedella has all the services that users may need, although we are not going to go to the beach itself. Before arriving and leaving behind the viewpoint on the access road, we park and head for the dry dock huts on the right-hand side. From the last of these we can enter the water in a rocky bottom full of hollows, cracks and ledges, which in some sections drops vertically to a depth of more than 6 metres, where the posidonia meadow is consolidated.
Shoals of fish will immediately surround us, both the luminous salema that graze in the posidonia, and shoals of small bogue that seek refuge in this irregular landscape.
It is advisable to keep close to the wall, which we leave to our right, where the depth is shallower and the possibility of spotting fish such as axillary wrasse or painted comber increases. It is also not unusual to see the odd small red sea scorpion, that stony-looking fish that goes perfectly unnoticed perched on the rock and which forms part of good Ibizan dishes.
The seabed, which sometimes drops off like a wall, begins to appear shallower and is now dotted with medium-sized stones from the landslides on the hillside at the point where the coastline forms a right angle. Immediately below the viewpoint on the road, we will see a rocky appendix with a pronounced slope where an arch is drawn in the rock at -4 metres. If we continue, when we turn around this islet there is an entrance in the wall like a cave, where we can look out as long as there are no waves, and after recognizing it, we can reverse direction and return to the starting point.
There are many anchored boats on this beach, so be careful and always mark your presence with a buoy.
