Ibiza Walks - Part 1 - Ses Balandres Gorge


Walk from Santa Agnes to Ses Balandres Gorge
 
Ibiza is full of surprises... Hidden beaches & coves...unbelievably stunning landscapes…& views that a camera on a mobile phone cannot do justice to.
This challenging walk is not very long but the scramble down the gorge of Ses Balandres is enough to get the heart pumping for even the most experienced and fittest of walkers.

Start your walk in the village of Santa Agnes (the Catalan name is Santa Ines) which is one of the smallest villages in Ibiza with 2 restaurants & a church.  Head west along the road from the church and after less than 1 kilometer you see a brick structure with a white pyramid roof. Take a right here past some houses towards the forest and after about one kilometer you will get a glimpse of the sea through the trees.

From here you have 2 options, head further along the path a few meters more to the cliff top for spectacular views (sunsets are amazing!), or for the fitter head down the gorge and enjoy the stunning cliff & sea views.  




Head back to the village and reward yourself with a drink at Can Cosmi bar (where they also make the best Tortilla we have tasted in Ibiza) or a paella at the neighbouring Sa Palmera restaurant that opened in 1969.

There are a number of boutique rural hotels close to Santa Agnes including Es Cucons, or if  a villa is more your kind of think check out a rural Ibiza villa to rent for a week or more in summer or winter.
