If you appreciate a good sunset then consider Cala Comte the next time you are on Ibiza.
If you think Cafe Mambo is the place in San Antonio then consider driving further west. Here the sun sets behind a scattering of small islands. The beach there is in superb condition and the facilities at the beach bar are excellent, albeit expensive. This photograph was taken on the approach to the cove with just one of several islands, which you can see from the beach.
Compared with the sunset hotspot of San Antonio, this small cove is out in the sticks and has a different feel. It nevertheless attracts many visitors at dusk. With a relatively small car park with its rough terrain, you’re better parking on the road and walking. This will serve you well, especially if you’re in a hurry to get away quickly after the daily spectacle.
With almost daily clear skies you’re unlikely to be disappointed here, so make sure you put it on your list of things to do the next time you’re on the island of Ibiza. On this side of the island, a little farther south, you have the iconic island of Es Vedra, which rises quickly from the sea. With only a short drive from Cala Comte, you should visit the many coves and beaches where you can view this dramatic looking rock.
Contrary to urban myth, the rock contains no magnetic make-up and is made from limestone. Cala d’Hort is a great beach for the view of Es Vedra and the food at the restaurant is very good. Another place you should put on your list of places to visit if you’re driving to the west of the island.
