Es Xarcu – 110 Ibiza Beaches

Less is more appears to be the motto of the beach restaurant at Cala Xarcu on the southern coast of the island. At least this is the case for the signs pointing the way, not to mention the condition of the sandy camino leading there. ‘Understatement’ is an understatement. One small overlooked sign and you’ll end up missing the turn to this beach refuge and/or your car will have hit a very deep pothole.

Es XarcuYou’d think from our description that this cove would be very sparsely populated, but you’d be wrong. Cala Xarco (Cala Xarco) is an insider’s tip for all those for whom money is no object.

This rustic restaurant terrace is a comfortable place to enjoy fresh fish or Mediterranean cuisine, but it’s not for the stingy. The difficult drive to the cove isn’t a problem for a majority of the guests, as many prefer the water route and arrive in their yachts.

Es XarcuThe cove is surrounded by pine forests and totally unspoilt, which is why it’s still a popular place although it doesn’t have a sandy beach and it’s rocky getting into the water. A few fishermen’s huts offer a touch of romantic flair, but the few loungers are reserved for restaurant customers.

Es XarcuCala Xarco can be reached from Cala Jondal or Sant Josep.
Coming from Cala Jondal head up the hill at the western end of the beach till you reach a T-junction where a very small sign to the left points the way to the cove, but be careful as the camino is a bit rough.

From Sant Josep you head towards Es Cubells first and then make a left towards Poirroig. Just before you arrive at Poirroig there’s a camino off to the left by the dustbins, which is equally rough, but brings you to the chiringuito.

Tomorrow is Figueretas
