Es Codolar – 110 Ibiza Beaches

May 6th, 2008 - 11:06 am Posted in Es Codolar, Ibiza Beaches | Comments (0)

Salt flats, rare species of birds, Mother Nature at work – the Ses Salines nature reserve gives you a clue as to how traditional Ibiza used to look. A narrow camino leads through the salinas up to the coast of Cap des Falco. The Cape of the Falcons is a unique natural area with countless numbers of animals that call it home. On the pebble beach you will find the restaurant of Cap des Falco, which has been a popular meeting spot for the scene for years.

Good music, chill out seating, Mediterranean cuisine with a hint of Italian influence. This is a great place to relax and leave all your cares behind.

The terrace provides a magnificent view of the sea and the southern coast. Right by the restaurant a path leads up the pine covered hillside. The effort made ascending the hill is more than worth it, as the view from the top is spectacular.

This is not a beach for swimming. Often the waves break spectacularly on the grey rocks worn smooth and round by the waves. It is particularly gorgeous when a storm comes in from the south – if the sun’s out the water glows green as it breaks on the beach.

The blue hour is another highlight, when the sun sets into the sea in winter, in summer it sets behind the hills. Fantastic! We suggest you stay after sundown then simply turn around and take in the view over the salt flats – the play of colours on the Salinas is as heavenly as the setting of the sun itself.

Es CodolarThis place can get busy, especially at sunset on weekends. The narrow camino can get somewhat chaotic, so it’s better to park further back and walk the rest of the way to avoid the parking chaos.

Don’t forget that the road to the restaurant runs through a nature reserve, so, please drive slowly so as not to disturb the birds, as they may be brooding, and keep an eye out for the distant flamingos who stay as far away from the party as possible.

To get there take the road to Es Cavallet/Ses Salines then turn right at the sign just before the salt mountain. Keep this to your left and you’re on your way to the cape.
