Often, when going on holiday, you don't know what you are signing up to with regards to the area. You might be familiar with what the media shows you of Ibiza, or even what you have seen on the social media profiles of your family and friends; However, Ibiza features 571.6 square kilometres and all areas are different! So... knowing what to expect can often be difficult... Jurriaan de Reijer
Therefore, we want to make sure that you know exactly what you are signing up to when you are staying with us!
This article features the surroundings of Villa Vedra, our luxury villa, located in the south west. We will introduce you to the beaches that are walking distance of Villa Vedra and the highlights they boast.
Villa Vedra is not only the perfect place to spend your holiday in Ibiza, it is also located in one of the most exciting place of the island!
Why? The Villa is located in the natural park of Cala d'Hort; the area in front of Es Vedra. If you don't know Es Vedra, let us give you a short introduction:
Es Vedra is a rock, in the sea, close to the shore. Myths have followed Es Vedrà from ancient history, not least that it was the home of the sirens and sea-nymphs who tried to lure Ulysses from his ship in Homer's Odyssey. Reputedly, it is the birth place of the goddess Tanit, whose statue you will see all across Ibiza.
Due to the importance of Es Vedra in the history of Ibiza, the coastline adjacent to Es Vedra, is a protected area. This area only boasts a small urbanization, the urbanization of Cala Carbo. On top of the hill of this urbanization you will find Villa Vedra.
The villa is walking distance to the most beautiful beaches of the island, namely: Cala Carbo, Cala Vadella and Cala d'Hort. Feel free to check out the video to get a good visual of the area!
Cala Carbo is the closest to Villa Vedra. Arriving at Cala Carbo evokes an instant feeling of being on vacation. The small, secluded cove is surrounded by pine trees and feels as though it is a private beach – although one and all are always welcome. With retro palm leaf umbrellas, but sun loungers equipped with plush mattresses and sheets, Cala Carbo is the best of both worlds – rustic and chic!
Highlight of Cala Carbo
El Baneario, without a doubt, is one of the best-known traditional fish restaurants in the south of the island, due to its excellent quality / price ratio. The tranquility that Cala Carbó offers, even in high season is amazing. You can eat with your feet buried in the sand and taste the freshness of the specimens that the fishermen of the area bring daily (lobsters, groupers, snappers, Gallo de San Pedro ...); an unavoidable temptation.

Approaching Cala Vadella is an absolutely spectacular sight – as you snake around the winding road, the first glimpse of the deep blue bay dotted with glam white yachts is amazing. As you wind your way down the hill into the quaint resort town, you’ll see the beach emerge with pretty turquoise green waters at the shallow, calm end. A small yet wide arc of sand is dotted with beach towels and sunbeds in the summer, however in the pre-season, don’t be surprised if you see the occasional horse rider galloping along the beach. Popular with families, there are plenty of water sports available and an array restaurants perched right on the sand to choose from.
