A beautiful route along which you will visit two of the island’s finest beaches whilst enjoying spectacular views of the islet of Es Vedrà and learning a little more about the history of Ibiza. This is a route with fantastic sea views and pleasant walks in the heart of the countryside where walkers can take refuge from the sun under large pine trees. It is a relatively easy walk, just 5.8 km including 100 metres of steep slopes. It is not a strenuous walk, but we do recommend that you wear sports shoes and bring sun protection cream and of course water.
The landscape and climate of the Balearic Islands is conducive to the practice of outdoor sports almost all year round. And, without a doubt, the municipality of Sant Josep is the perfect destination to explore the islands by land and sea. Its mountains, seabeds, villages and hidden bays provide the perfect setting for outdoor activities in the heart of nature.
In this area is still extracted and exported large amounts of sea salt. In fact, from the main road you can see the amazing white mountains of salt ready to be refined. For centuries, the salt was the livelihood of many families on the island. The “salineros” (the people who work extracting the sea salt) are recognised for their hard work with a statue next to the church of Sant Francesc de Ses Salines.
