Els Amunts Ibiza

Our hotel Sandos el Greco hotel is located in Cala Portinatx, a small beach area in the municipality of Sant Joan and in the heart of the Els Amunts reserve. This natural wonder boasts a unique ecosystem that allows you to discover the other side of Ibiza and immortalize its Mediterranean landscapes. For lovers of photography and nature, it represents a great adventure.

The attractiveness of its beaches and steep coasts alongside its beautiful rural areas and its aroma of pine, almond, olive, and fig trees, with its typical rural houses of traditional Ibizan architecture, is something you cannot miss. These incredible areas open up a wide range of possibilities and adventures. Remember not to forget the virgin coves you will find during your tour as Cala d’Aubarca that hides a freshwater source among the rocks and can only be accessed on foot.

Discover the island by walking

About the colors: the variety of blues in its waters, of browns in its lands and beaches, of greens in its forests and fields, and of course, white everywhere on their churches, villas, and fences.

The island of Ibiza itself is not large, 40 km north to south, and in the Els Amunts area, the days go by calmly, with that relaxing silence only broken by some birds, crickets, and the simple sound of activities in the sea.

Any self-respecting route must combine a town, made up of a church and a few streets around it, such as Sant Joan, Sant Miquel, Sant Vicenç de Sa Cala, Santa Agnes, Buscastell or Sant Mateu, with any of its small beaches, from Cala Salada in Sant Antoni to Aigües Blanques in Santa Eulalia, passing through Es Port de Sant Miquel, Benirras, Cala Xarraca, Cala Portinatx, Cala Sant Vicent.

And on the way between the towns and the sea, the Malacosta mountain range with its Puig Gros or Puig des Fornàs peaks, or its viewpoints such as Punta Xarraca or Punta Grossa.

Furthermore, any stop along the way invites you to take out your camera and enter one of its paths, streams, mountains, or cliffs. No area of ​​the island contains as many beautiful hiking trails as Els Amunts. One of them, perhaps one of the most popular in tourist guides, is the route to the Far des Moscarter. A route suitable for everyone that starts in S’Arenal Gran, in Portinatx itself, and just 100 meters from our Sandos El Greco hotel.
