  1. A guide to cycling Ibiza

    Leave a Comment

    Cycling is one of the best ways to discover the island. Between hills, off-road trails and scenic coastal paths, you can enjoy the view while simultaneously getting in a workout.

    The cycling season is divided in two, springtime between February and May and autumn between September and November. The mild temperatures during these months make cycling in Ibiza an attractive proposition. June, July and August are the hottest and the busiest months on the island so not an ideal time for training. If you decide to come at this time then cycling at dawn not only ensures you have less traffic on the road but keeps you cooler than you would be in the hot sun.

    The highest point of the island is Sa Talaria and it sits at 475 meters above sea level, so those looking for mountains trails should probably go elsewhere. The rolling roads and quiet lanes are quintessentially Mediterranean, lined with olive trees, orange and lemon trees. Luscious and green, the south of the island offers fast, smooth roads, with the north being a hillier affair with rougher, smaller roads and quiet views.

    For those looking to get off the beaten track and onto the rough stuff, Ibiza’s vast array of trails allows you to explore the island without the need to spend too much time on the road.

    Its dry climate means the trails and single track are often fast and dusty, ideal for a hardtail mountain bike. For those looking for a challenge, the short, steep climbs dotted around the island are sure to test even the strongest legs. Rocky, technical descents make for an exhilarating ride and breathtaking views aplenty; there is no better way to discover the White Isle.

  2. Discover the undiscovered side of Ibiza.

    Leave a Comment

    One of the things most people love when they are on holiday is to discover new places. So today we look at some places which, despite their beauty, have remained unspoiled and off-the-beaten-track.

    CALA LLENTRISCA

    Probably the most famous “hidden gem” on the island. Surrounded by pine forests and some fisherman’s haunt, this beach feels like a true escape. Getting there is not for everybody and this keeps visitors number low. Before heading to the beach make sure to buy some food and drinks as there aren’t any amenities available nearby.

    ES PORTITXOL

    This is the right place if you seek seclusion. Es Portitxol looks like a lagoon surrounded by unspoiled nature, the beach is almost circular and the water of a beautiful green and turquoise colour, perfect for snorkeling. Getting there involves some serious hiking so make sure to be prepared and bring all the essentials.

    CALÓ DES MOLTONS 

    Located on the North of the island near Port de Sant Miquel, Caló des Moltons is a quiet bay with flat rocks and pebbles, boathouses, and cool, still water. Easily accessible by foot on the side of San Miguel beach. While it has the feel of a private find, the inlet has its own chiringuito: Utopía – a pretty wooden beach bar and surprisingly upmarket place, with good cocktails and sardine specials.

If you don’t feel like a tour and want to go exploring by yourself, we encourage you to ask us and do a bit of research first, even if most of the trails are well-marked, it’s always better to have a map with you and to know where the route is heading.

    Cycling

Their tours include road riding, cross country mountain bike rides as well as riding off the map across dusty caminos and gravel tracks – known only by locals!

    Horse-riding

    Ibiza’s forest trails make it an ideal place for horse-riding. We recommend you  Can Mayans, on the road from Santa Gertrudis to San Lorenzo, their tours will take you on nature trails during the day and romantic full moon rides at night under the stars.
