Sant Antoni de Portmany
Physical & technical
Two days for a gravel winter getaway in Ibiza ? I’ve got you covered! Here is a great first route to discover the southwest part of the Spanish island. You will start from Sant Antoni de Portmany and its natural harbor. There is a bike path along the beach that will avoid you taking the road. At the end of that bike path, you’ll need to get on the road for about 13km before to go on large trails.
For about 30km, you will dive into large gravel trails, singles, rocky routes, with some amazing views like the ones above and below. There are only 2 or 3 spots where you’ll need to walk if you’re not comfortable riding on bigger rocks, but overall there are no major walking/carrying your bike sections.
There are many points of view during this ride. If you do it, make sure to take the time to stop and enjoy every singles views!
We made a quick stop at Cala Vedella to eat something and get some water. Make sure you take into account that the prices of food are pretty expensive on the island, 26,50€ for a charcuterie plate😅) or 6,50€ for a bottle of water…If you can, take enough water with you and snacks! We’ve found some more reasonable restaurant for diner that you can find the “best addresses”.
However, the restaurant was nice and we had a nice view on the sea with a little spot for our bikes. The restaurant was called Beach Cocktail-Bar Cana Sofia. Lots of places were closed during the winter but there are always some small shops where you can get cheaper water bottles or snacks.
I’d also advices to get a big breakfast in the morning, snack during the ride and then have diner. It’ll avoid spending too much time at a restaurant for lunch and it’ll be more economical 🙂
