The dramatic fisherman’s trail

Perhaps the most beautiful fisherman’s trail in all of Ibiza, this coast-hugging fusion of fitness, cardio and meditation takes hikers through traditional villages and silent forests into the island’s most authentic wilderness. Plunging between dramatic sea cliffs, we discover a lost route to the sea. Experienced hikers will relish the challenge of scrambling over rugged rock formations, using fixed ropes and wooden steps to descend to untouched, isolated beaches where clusters of ancient fisherman’s huts and pristine turquoise waters await. The unrivalled scenery and adrenaline-fuelled descent make this one of Ibiza’s most awe-inspiring hikes.

Ibiza Hike Station Grading System

Easy Level.

May include some short sections which are steep or uneven. These more gentle trails are suitable for beginners or those looking for a relaxed outdoor experience. They usually follow well-marked countryside caminos or coastal paths with minimal elevation gain. These hikes can be tailored to suit families, children and those with varying levels of fitness.

Intermediate Level.

No technical skill is required but these hikes may include sharp ascents and descents and cover rough terrain that offers more of a challenge. These hikes are suitable for hikers with a medium level of cardiovascular fitness and good sense of agility and balance. There may be avoidable areas of exposed heights unsuitable for those with vertigo.

Advanced Level.

These difficult trails will cover all types of terrain including loose shale underfoot and sections of coast which are particularly steep, rocky and slippery. There may be sections which are largely exposed, involve steep steps or ropes and have significant elevation gain. These hikes require a higher-than-average level of fitness and endurance and a resilient, positive mindset.

Expert Level.

These steep trails are physically taxing and hard to follow. Hikers may be required to ascend exposed cliff faces or descend using ropes. Routes will be rocky, climbing may be required and an expert level of agility and balance will be needed. These hikes are typically reserved for experienced hikers with advanced outdoor skills and knowledge and are not suitable for those with vertigo.
