The beautiful coastline of Sant Josep is lined with remains that tell us about the history of our municipality, the activities of its inhabitants, its customs and its culture. One of the most characteristic and easily identifiable features are the boathouses. These constructions can be found in countless nooks and crannies of the coast and represent the seafaring lifestyle that has been an essential part of the island’s identity.
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.
Es Bol Nou is a beach formed by a group of different sandy coves and beaches that alternate with pebbles and rocky areas; it is located between marine slopes and a closed bay. From Es Bol Nou we can emphasize the reddish colour of its cliffs, which contrast with the clear waters of this area. The Es Bol Nou beach is placed next to the Phoenician settlement and the fishing harbour of Sa Caleta, surrounded by cliffs made of red clay.
Ses Boques is a peaceful pebble beach below the cliffs of Es Cubells. It is special because of its small size and untouched landscape, which together are quite spectacular and unique. Due to its location by the open sea, on this beach there is usually a swell, which increases its natural beauty and still allows going for a swim. This beach is surrounded by coniferous trees along the cliffs and on the left end of the little cove we can make out some fisherman’s huts.
Es Cubells village is next to a cliff under which lays the Ses Bosques beach. In this village, we can find a monument erected in 1996 that pays tribute to the seamen. In Es Cubells it seems that time stands still and the beauty and the tranquility of the old days prevail. Here you will find more information about Platges de Comte. here
