Es Portitxol

North & Interior Ibiza

Encircled by a necklace of cliffs, this tiny, lonely and very isolated horseshoe-shaped rocky cove is perfect for escaping the Ibiza mayhem. Most of the year there's no one here, except the odd fisherman (fishers' huts fringe the back of the bay). It's a 20-minute walk northwest of the Illa Blanca urbanisation, 5km northwest of Sant Miquel.
