Description

Cala d'Albarca is a cove on the northern seaboard of the Spanish island of Ibiza. The cove is situated within the municipality Sant Antoni de Portmany. It is 4.0 miles (6.4 km) north east of the village of Santa Agnès de Corona and 14.0 miles (22.5 km) north of Ibiza Town.

Description

Only the most determined explorer will be able to access the secluded bay. The cove in a large horseshoe with a rocky peninsular either side. To the eastern end is Cap des Rubió while at the western end is Cap d'Albarca both of which are over 200 metres (660 ft) above sea level. To south of d'Albarca is the hills of Puig d'en Cires and Puig de sa Cova’, 295 metres (968 ft) and 340 metres (1,120 ft) above sea level, respectively. Down in the cove there is a rocky beach, but no sand, but the impressive coastline here is scattered with huge boulders. One very impressive feature is a cracked natural arch. There are many flat rocks and ledges close to the waters edge which are good sunbathing spots. The water in the bay is crystal clear and is a deep turquoise when the sun shines. This is the ideal bay for snorkelling and diving.
