Trip to Ibiza off season: on foot, by bike and kayak
Ibiza: what is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the name of this island in the Balearics? Music, rocking, parties, clubs, alcohol? Sure. Even the sea and beaches of course. Ibiza is all this, but not only. Indeed, much more. Especially out of season or summer months apart. From mid-September until the end of May in fact the climate in Ibiza becomes less hot, the stupid crowds and you can immerse yourself in nature. From beach to beach, but also from hill to hill, in the woods and countryside.
Green is the dominant color, then from October to early June. Because the temperature difference day night, settles milliliters dew on the ground and the plants drink greedily precious water droplets to grow lush.
The other Ibiza short, is a discovery to make day after day. To enjoy it in slow mode. A walking and cycling. As well as kayaking to have another point of view on the coast, squeeze in some cave and down to earth in the most hidden coves.
Each short, can choose the activities they prefer. Only trekking. Only riding two wheels (also electrical). Or only by sea, paddling. Better yet, alternating with each other depending on the place to visit.
The routes to be done can be one or more days depending on the time available and training. In a week you manage to get a general idea of the island. With ten days you can linger better in all areas.
Where to start? From the acropolis of Dalt Vila or Ibiza town. Declared World Heritage by UNESCO is a pleasure to discover walking in lane street, along the Renaissance city walls with seven bastions. Always alive and vibrant, from 11 in the morning forwarded night, the ancient city is the place to shop and have fun. Open all year, for those who love live music, it is the Teatro Pereyra Cafe Concert, a stone’s throw from the harbor.
The most beautiful beaches, however, are located in the town of Sant Josep de Sa Talaia: 80 km, including creeks. Two of all, inside the Ses Salines Natural Park (The Salines). It is Es Cavallet, a kilometer white beach, the first in Europe frequented by gay men he officially seventies and today the number one for nudists; and Ses Salines, gently sloping water, dunes behind.
To do in a kayak is the west coast.
Here, at sea level, “they quarried” blocks to build fortifications and houses. The waters, crystal clear, thanks to Poseidon (also proclaimed World Heritage Site) invite you to dive and snorkel.
Paddling again and again to the north, on the coast itself, here is Cala Vedella, collection and quiet.
