Hiking route: Es Portitxol

Hiking route that will take you to discover one of the most hidden coves in Ibiza that will surprise you with its crystal clear turquoise waters. 
The length of the route is 2,743 metres, with an IBP difficulty rating of 35, including the necessary climb back up. 
The first part of the route runs along a destroyed asphalt road. The second part is a dirt road along the cliffs, which is generally accessible, although caution should be exercised in some narrow sections. The route can be done at any time of the year, although it is not recommended on rainy or wet days due to the slipperiness of the terrain, nor in summer during the hottest hours of the day.

To get to the recommended car park, take the road from Sant Miquel to Sant Mateu Nord, until you reach the Isla Blanca housing estate. From here go down the street on the left until you reach the car park. There is another possibility, if you want to do as much of the route as possible by car, which is to take the street on the right as far as where the dirt road begins. The asphalt is in very bad condition, but it is not impassable for cars.

In the car park, the signs warn us that it is impossible to continue by car because of the enormous potholes and potholes that make it impossible for vehicles to pass.
Es Portitxol is a small cove, with an almost circular outline, crystal-clear waters and tranquillity. The turquoise water is flanked by a few dry dock huts, a refuge for fishermen.

The seclusion of the place is due to the high slopes and forests that surround it. There are no services of any kind in the cove, so it is necessary to carry provisions and liquids. It is a rocky cove, both on the shore and in the water, so it is advisable to wear suitable footwear if you want to go for a swim.
