A Trip To Cala Vadella took me to a pretty beach resort south-west of the island of Ibiza. A hidden gem with a sunset to die for! We stayed at a friend’s villa which is a twenty-minute walk from the beach. The area is very chilled and there are lovely villas designed in both the old and new style. Pink flowers, native to the island, are in abundance and adorn the sun-drenched white walls.
Restaurants we tried at the local beach include Cana Sofia; to start they served a delicate amuse bouche of gazpacho soup and for main I had the caprese salad and my friend had the roasted vegetables. I also had a delicious Virgin Mary and a complimentary glass of Cava. We also visited Can Juame Restaurant and again superb food. I had padron peppers to start and a Margherita Pizza for my main course. Other local restaurants include: Maria-Luisa and Maya Beach Club. Cala Vadella is a great place to stay. However, you need to hire a car as taxis do not seem to pick up from this location which made it quite tricky getting around.
Other restaurants we visited include Sa Capella just outside St. Antonio and KM5 lounge near Ibiza Town. Sa Capella is an old monastery and the menu although limited is superb quality. A word of warning though, if you are vegetarian this is not the place for you, no veggie options I’m afraid. I had salt crusted cooked salmon with a very unusual cream sauce laced with delicate herbs and spices. Beware of the amber nectar they serve at the end of the meal – Hierbas (pronounced yerra-bus) it will have you all giggling like school girls! We went to KM5 on our last night, the food here is also good and you can dance the night away after dinner. The night we attended was Studio 54 night – so lots of 70’s and 80’s disco tracks such as: First Choice – ‘Let No Man Put Us Under’.
