Cala d'Hort - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
Panorama showing Cala d'Hort in Ibiza. This picture was taken from the beach late in the afternoon when the sun was quite low. The islands of Es Vedrà and Es Vedrall are backlit and silhouetted. I did not quite get the camera settings right and there is a strong stiching line in the panorama. It is easy to see why people would come here to watch the sunset in this quiet and relaxing bay.

Panorama of Cala d'Hort in Ibiza. Cala d'Hort is on the far western edge of Ibiza and is quite a remote beach just south of Cala Truja and Cala Carbo. The beach is quite small, about 150m long and about 20m wide. The waters remain quite shallow, being about 1.5m deep some 30m from the shore. Though the surrounding area is rocky, the beach itself is sandy. As can be seen in this panoramic photograph, the beach is also very close to the small islands of Es Vedra and Es Vedranell, which are clearly visible just offshore.
There are some good bars and restaurants around the beach which offer very good views, particularly at sunset. In fact, Cala d'Hort (and other beaches on this side of Ibiza) provide some of the best sunsets on the island. There are no hotel developments near to the beach and a car is needed to access it. The nearest large beach resort is Cala Vedella to the north.
TRAVEL DIRECTIONS AND GETTING THERE
By Road: Take the PM803 north from Eivissa (south from San Antonio) to Sant Josep (San José), which lies about halfway between the two. Just outside Sant Jose, on either side of the village are roads which leads to a number of nearby beaches, including Cala d'Hort. The cala is about 10 miles from San Jose.
