Cala d’Albarca is a large horseshoe shaped by situated in the North West of Ibiza. The closest village to our start point is San Mateu – a small village with a church and one or two typical bars. If you are feeling adventurous the route to Cala ‘d’Albarca can start here – (this would add an extra 3km each way to the route) This section of the walk is quite easy and takes you through the quiet country roads of the North. The majority is on tarmac road turning to a gravel track as you near the start point/parking place.
The track winds down the hillside zig zagging back and forth approx 4 or 5 times. As you head down you will catch the occasional glimpse of the view through the trees – so you know you are heading on the right path. The walk down takes around 35-45 mins in total and the terrain is a mix of loose rocks and gravel so make sure you wear sensible footwear (not your flip flops).
The forest clears and you are left with a stunning view of 300 meter cliffs, a small rocky island of Cala d’Albarca.
One of the highlights of this walk is “Puente de Piedra” (Bridge of Stone) a small natural stone bridge perched on the cliffs. We do not recommend walking across here but often people do. If you make that decision please be very careful.
You can then continue down towards the sea and find a spot to sunbathe on the larger flatter rocks / ledges.. It can be quite steep in places so again be careful.
Enjoy your time here as then you have to make the hike back up, Why not head back to San Mateu for a nice cold beer in a local bar – you will have earned it.
