A quick overview of what we are organizing this month:
see our calendar for details: https://ibizaoutdoors.com/calendar/
DOLPHIN LOOKOUT AND STONE BRIDGE (SAN MATEU)
Sunday, 5th February – 10.00h
From the church of San Mateu, your guide Lia will lead you on this walk that just keeps giving! As we head upwards past the terraced fields and into the woods, every few metres discloses more of the vista until we reach the adventurous part. Here we clamber over some boulders to reach a breathtaking viewpoint looking down to Cala d’Albarca. Pods of Dolphins have been spotted here so perhaps we will be lucky!
We then loop back to the start point along a quiet camino with more amazing views, and then we head down, down, down an old abandoned road to a spectacular natural stone bridge! We will pause to take photos of this amazing sight, before heading back up, up, up to where we came from.
NIGHT SKY WALK – FULL MOON (CALA D’EN SERRA)
Sunday 5th February – 1700h
The moon is still rising high up in the north so we will go to the Portinatx lighthouse to watch it rising from the sea (fingers crossed)! The planets that accompanied the moon during summer have disappeared and are now visible in the morning just before sunrise.
We walk on an even dirtroad through a forest to reach the coast of Portinatx and the highest lighthouse in the Balearic Islands. On our walk we will stop here and there to listen to the amazing story of the moon´s violent origin, its importance to life on earth and the latest news of the preparations to go back to the moon!
15 minutes after moonrise the sun will set – please bring a torch for the way back as we´ll be walking in the dark.
CALA SAN VICENTE TO TANIT
Sunday 12th February – 10.00h
Starting from the beach of San Vicente this walk leads you over the original pilgrim’s path that has been used for thousands of years all the way to Tanit’s cave. The area near Tanit’s cave has a deep ancient history and a strong connection with the feminine energy related to this Phoenician goddess of Ibiza. Here Ankhana will guide a short meditation. After the meditation we continue through a beautiful forest, before heading back to the beach where we started.
SANTA EULARIA AND THE SECRET TUNNEL
Sunday 19th February – 10.00h
Our guide Roger will take you on a special walk, discovering lots of hidden and beautiful places. This journey will begin in the sandy car park in front of the Mariner’s bar at the estuary to the river. We’ll head to a secret tunnel and some magical view-points where we’ll stop and have break. Bring some snacks to enjoy at the break if you want.
Sunday 26th February – 10.00h
Our guide John will be taking you on a magical journey packed full of fantastic views of the North of our beautiful Ibiza, visiting a few special beaches and swim areas on the way. We’ll venture out to a secret area visited by very few people, and then walking a little further to take our adventure into some caves before heading along a coastal route to savour more stunning sights.
