The Descent to Aguas Blancas
While some may still be sleeping off the excesses of the night before, early birds can enjoy the morning hours on Ibiza in a very different way: for example, by watching the sun rise over the bay of Aguas Blancas between San Carlos and Cala de San Vicente. Situated beneath a small cliff, the 300-metre-long, yellow sandy beach is particularly popular with the locals. Make sure you’ve fully woken up before you start this tour, because the descent to the bay is rather steep. But you’ll be rewarded for your little trek: facing east, early risers can bask in the very first rays of sun to touch the island.
Hiking on Sa Talaia
If you’re drawn to the interior of the island, you can climb the 472-metre-high Sa Talaia in the south. This hike is a particular treat in early summer, when the wild lavender and rosemary on the edge of the trail start to bloom, and nature is no longer just a feast for the eyes, but also for your sense of smell. The ascent and descent are also suitable for inexperienced hikers and take about 1.5 hours each way. At the top, you will be rewarded with a panoramic view of the island. This vista is particularly useful for newcomers to Ibiza, as it gives a good overview of the island – and lets you pick and choose the spots you’d like to see from up close.
