Cala Olivera, Ibiza

Ibiza - Cala Olivera_10
Hi there! We are having a great time in Ibiza and we thought we could share with you a little bit of our holidays. We can’t promise to post every day, but we hope to keep you updated and give you some tips about this famous island.

We are staying in one of the quietest areas of the island. We wanted to discover the slow-paced Ibiza. We are not party girls and we wanted sea, sun and relax. And that’s exactly what we found in this little cove: Cala Olivera.
Ibiza - Cala Olivera_15You will find it in your way from Ibiza to Santa Eulària del Riu. Hidden behind a private residential area, we got there after a 2 km. hike. It was early and we walked alone enjoying the scent of the pines. It was absolutely beautiful.

Ibiza - Cala Olivera_1Once in Cala Olivera we were mesmerized by the calm emerald-green waters, the silence and the beautiful views.

The owner of the bar was really nice: he asked us where we came from, he told us about the cove, asked about our camera and made us feel welcomed. We were tempted by a lovely home made sponge cake that was on display but we were feeling super healthy after our hike and we already had breakfast so… next time, maybe. We settled in, took our books and prepared for a nice morning under the sun. We had the cove for ourselves!

You can have some salads, fish dishes or sandwiches at the bar, so even though it’s a tiny cove you will have everything you need for a slow-paced beach day.

      Hi Cheyenne! We are loving the north area of the island. Quieter and wilder! Just nature! We are sure you would love it!

    […] 5. Cala Olivera: a little bit difficult to find, but the two kilometers hike will be justified by its incredible emerald green waters, a tiny bar where you can eat the most exquisite grilled sardines (expect nothing fancy!) and the perfect place to relax and forget the world. […]
