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.

  • This Cove is truly spectacular. Obviously, though, it is necessary to arrive not later 11:00 otherwise it is too crowded and you'll struggle to find place. The sea is really crystal clear

  • From the point of view of Es Vedra Tower is about 20 minutes on foot. From San Antonio was around 27 euros by taxi 20-30 minutes. View from our room is the Es Vedra Beach is wide, and is a slightly mysterious atmosphere! There are two restaurants. I had the paella. Because it was significantly more time-consuming. In the play had become a fashion show for an impromptu parade through the beach, wear products to tourist groups had come. Please return the Carmen restaurant, call a taxi for me. Returned to you when you deposit 20 euro, taxi has come.

  • Don't be scared by the trip. The beach is right at the bottom of a road, where the parking lot though difficult it is quite possible. I love the water, calm, it seems crystal. The calm (in lowest era of course, because the beach is relatively small). But the best, the direct view to Es Vedra. Looks like you're right there at your fingertips. It is worth to spend a few hours and take some beautiful pictures.
