Sur-Oeste de Sant Josep

Impresionantes acantilados


The beaches of Es Xarcu, Es Torrent, Es Cubells, Ses Boques, Cala Carbó and Cala d’Hort occupy the south-west coast of the Sant Josep area.

Es Xarcu is a very small sailor spot formed by a closed and narrow little cove with many fishermen’s huts. Es Torrent is a secluded cove with rocky and sandy parts, its waters are crystal clear. The beaches of Es Cubells and Ses Boques are located at the bottom of the cliffs of Es Cubells. The beach of Es Cubells consists of three small coves naturally divided by rocky formations. Ses Boques is a small rocky cove yet charming and very quiet.

The most popular beach is Cala d’Hort, having white sand and crystal clear waters, and from where you can enjoy the stunning silhouettes of the islets of Es Vedrà and Es Vedranell. Following the coastline you’ll reach the beach of Cala Carbó, a quiet and little family cove, hidden in between pine forests.

The area has some of the most popular beach restaurants and beach bars, serving fresh fish and tasty paellas and rice dishes.

One of the places you can’t miss is the Porroig bay, that offers breathtaking views of the coast.
