Cala Salada - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
It is easy to see why Cala Salada is so loved by the locals. The waters are well protected, calm and crystal clear. There are no large hotels here and few tourists. Those that find their way here do so because they appreciate the calm and relaxing atmosphere that comes from being away from the big beach hotels.

Panorama of the beach at Cala Salada (Cala Saladeta) in Ibiza. Cala Salada is 4km from Sant Antoni de Portmany. This small beach lies between sa Foradada and Cala Llosar, close to the tiny village of Sa Galera. Cala Salada is a u-shaped cove lying between high cliffs and surrounded by pine trees. The beach is also small and there are not many facilities or hotels here, though you can hire sun beds. The beach is a favorite among the local residents an boat owners, who anchor here, as there are no ferry services here. This means that the beach remains fairly quiet in spite of it's proximity to San Antoni.
North of Cala Salada are the Cova de des Fontanelles. The access to these caves is lengthy, as you must drive a short distance up a dirt track and then walk a fair distance to the caves themselves. The caves contain Bronze Age cave paintings, which are protected by iron bars which prevent their proper viewing. However, this is a very secluded area and a narrow path leads down the cliffs to the sea. Walking along the cliff tops offers spectacular views along the coast.
