San Antonio - Portinatx
El Mirador de Las Puertas del Cielo (Ses Portes del Cel), located on a cliff in Cala Es Corrals, was chosen by the hippie community of the 60s and 70s to watch the sunset. The story begins in Pla de Corona, a field of almond trees that was visited by them during flowering and from there they walked to the viewpoint to see one of the most beautiful sunsets in Ibiza. From the viewpoint you can see the Ses Margalides rock. It is a sea of intense blue color. At sunset the sun is reflected in the limestone red rock and from the sea we are fortunate to be able to contemplate this spectacle up close. We can pass under the rock through a small natural hole and imagine that we return to those years of freedom, where the hippies sat on the gazebo to enjoy the small and simple pleasures that nature gives us.
If we continue north along the cliff, after a long zigzag through our road we can see the hidden and charming cove of Es Portitxol. It is very isolated, and there lies precisely its greatest charm. For all those who love the paradisiacal, in this cove they will find their place. If we want to access it we must cross a dense pine forest and make our way through a narrow entrance on the cliff, but the effort will definitely give us a reward: a cove resting on a bed of crystal clear turquoise waters, embraced by the exuberant nature that surrounds it and bearer of an ancestral legacy, the pine and sabina wooden houses built by hand by the fishermen of Ibiza. In this haven of peace, it is best to relax by letting yourself be carried away by the senses: to listen to the continuous whisper of the swaying of the waves caressing the coast; Taste the sea breeze, which floods us with its smell and flavors; and abandon ourselves to the contemplation of that immense blue that as it moves away captivates us with its mystery.
Even more to the north and parts already completely after our intense rest we find, at the end of a beautiful route following the profile of the coast, Cala Benirrás. Although more accessible and crowded than the previous one, it is still one of the coves with the most magic, charm and personality of the island. Because it is located inside a narrow bay, this makes it a very pleasant and safe sea shelter not only for those who access by land, but also by sea. In summer you can see how yachts and sailboats anchor in its waters, either to enjoy its crystalline bottoms and full of life through the practice of snorkeling, as well as to contemplate its beautiful sunsets or enjoy its magical Sunday afternoons of drums on the beach. This is undoubtedly one of the attractions of the island, where once a week hundreds of people congregate before sunset to bid farewell to the day with a concert of drums that make vibrate with more intensity each of the hearts of the people there gathered.
At the end of our itinerario and at the northernmost point there is another natural treasure of the white island: Es Canaret. If we find Es Portitxols cove inaccessible, Es Canaret is no less, and thats where its beauty and charm lies. Winding roads lead us to it, not without difficulty, starting from our previous position; Of course some roads full of natural beauty and very appreciated by adventure lovers. Once on the coast, a private path that crosses a large estate leads to our coveted cove. Again, the greenish and bluish tones on a sandy white background delight us with every step we take with our bare feet on its shore. It is an idyllic place for the exploration of the marine biodiversity of Ibiza with our snorkel goggles helped by a seabob, because in it we can find an immense variety of fish as well as the famous and extensive meadows of the Posidonia of the Pitiusas, which are the responsible for the beauty of the seabed and biodiversity of the waters of this beautiful and exuberant Mediterranean island.
