The ultimate hidden swim

This is our most challenging hike and takes us to the most inaccessible cove on the island. Following pine-clad trails, we descend exceptionally steep cliff paths concealed among the rocks to arrive at a rocky and isolated cove. At this beach we can swim far out into crystalline waters, gazing back at our now-vanished path through the cliffs. We clamber among the lunar rock formations to meditate over the water, before returning via a deep, atmospheric and otherworldly forest where we will walk silently beside some of the oldest stone walls on the island.

This hike is not permitted during March, April and May as it is a protected area for the falcon breeding season.

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.
