‘Hidden Gems’ is an opportunity for us to let you know that we’ve recently been somewhere that really think you should know about it too! It might be somewhere we’ve been going for a while, or something we’ve chanced upon for the first time. It might be a restaurant, a bar, a beach (like Cala Olivera)…it could be anything at all that has reminded us just why we love living in Ibiza so much!
We hope you get the opportunity to check them out too. If we’ve missed any – tweet us at @cm_ibiza with hashtag #ibizahiddengem
Cala Olivera is a real treat of a beach. Accessed by entering the security guarded urbanisation Roca Llisa (enough to put many people off!) on the east of the island, it rarely gets crowded and offers the most authentic of Ibiza beach experiences. You’ll need a car to navigate the lengthy rocky terrain down to the bay, but once you’ve got there you are in for a beautiful day. The beach is small, and likely to be populated by a handful of locals. Like most beaches in Ibiza, the water is crystal clear and perfect for swimming and snorkelling. There are plenty of rock outcrops surrounding the bay, perfect for sunbathing if you’re not a fan of the sand – and also for catching the last of the sunshine at the end of the day. There is a small ‘chiringuito’ to keep you refreshed, selling very reasonably priced drinks and a lovely fresh fish menu.
