The village of Sant Josep de sa Talaia is 7.0mi east of the beach. In 2012 Cala d’Hort is one of the 12 blue flag beaches on the island.Recent HistoryThe Battle of Cala d'HortThe so-called battle of Cala d'Hort was a demonstration by the island's environmentalists against developers who saw the sparsely populated slopes of the Serra de Ses Roques Altes as the perfect place to expand the islands tourist industry. A 420-room hotel and 18-hole golf course were planned along with a desalination plant to provide the drinking water for such a large development. The island's green movement known as GEN-GOB began a campaign to stop the development in 1992. After many years of objections and legal wrangles the development, much to the greens amazement, got the go-ahead in 1998. The GEN-GOB decided that a more proactive measure was needed and they took their arguments against the development to the island's people through an organised protest march. The protest was organised for January 1999 and on that day eleven thousand protesters marched through the streets of Ibiza town. The local politicians quickly realised that his representation made up 14% of the islands population. This wave of opposition helped to sweep the ruling PP party from power. In August 1999 the local government put a stop to any development plans. The Cala d'Hort National Park was created in February 2002.

  • Hard not to be amazed once you get to this Cove. The view of Es Vedra is really impressive and sunset I think is lovely. The beach not too big is mixed rock and sand. The water here is really transparent, as in much of the island.

  • The Creek is 10. The bad thing is crammed people, as every summer and most times don't have neither hole for you, nor for the car, having to park far away, hardly you worth go.
