Ibiza Beach of the Week - Pou des Lleo

Pou des Lleo - just a ten minute drive away from San Carlos is of one of Ibiza's smallest and most peaceful coves…

Situated approximately five kilometres, or just a ten minute drive away from San Carlos is of one of Ibiza's smallest and most peaceful coves…the beautiful Pou des Lleo.

Popular with the locals, this beach is idyllic for those seeking tranquility as, even in the high season, it remains relatively quiet.

A sheltered horse-shoe shaped cove, surrounded by a rugged coastline with dramatic rock formations, red cliffs and lush green pine woods, 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.

At only 60 metres long and 15 metres wide, Pou des Lleo is very small compared to the other beaches on Ibiza, but is easily reached by car or bicycle simply by following the signposts from San Carlos.

There is access for the disabled, toilets and a shower, and sun loungers and parasols are available to hire.

You can enjoy a reasonably-priced drink or snack at the Bon Estar chiringuito (or beach bar) 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 Ibizan dishes.

For a day of sheer relaxation, surrounded by beautiful views and a laid-back ambience, Pou des Lleo ticks all the boxes.
