Es Pou des Lleo Beach

Santa Eulalia, Ibiza. One of Ibiza's smallest and most peaceful beach coves.

Location: 10 minutes drive from San Carlos
Facilities: Loungers, parasols, beachbar, access for the disabled
Activities: Relaxation!
Size: 60 metres long, 10 metres wide
Getting there: Reached only by car, follow signposts from San Carlos. Parking very limited, but the beach is rarely busy.

Popular with the locals, this small and sheltered beach cove is idyllic for those seeking tranquility as, even in the high season, it remains relatively quiet. Pou des Lleo, with its mixture of fine, soft sand and pebbles, still has the feel of a fishing port due to the typical wooden fishermen's boat houses on each side of the beach. This is truly one of Ibiza's natural, almost completely untouched environments, where it is not unusual for people to sunbathe in the nude.

Translating as "Well of the Lion", Pou des Lleo boasts spectacular views of the island of Tagomago and is located just a few metres from the Torre d'en Valls, one of the towers built to protect Ibiza against pirate attacks in the past. The picturesque surrounding countryside is a favourite with walkers and the crystalline, turquoise water and unusual rock formations make it perfect for swimming and snorkelling.

Beach bars and restaurants:

You can enjoy a reasonably-priced drink or snack at the Bon Estar chiringuito which sells refreshments until sunset, and the two restaurants - Can Salvado and Pou des Lleo - offer a selection of fresh fish, Paella, and other typical Ibicenco dishes.
