Cala Benirràs beach is blessed by the western sun and lies just a ten-minute drive (7.5 km / 4.6 miles) from Sant Miquel de Balansat, between the headlands of Cova de s’Orenga and Punta Blanca on the north coast of Ibiza.
Along the road to Sant Miquel de Balansat, there is a good number of interesting restaurants where you can enjoy all kinds of cuisine, from traditional Ibizan dishes to the most varied international food. Here we provide you with a series of the best recommendations starting in Santa Gertrudis and ending in Sant Miquel.
Ibiza lies in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea and whether it’s due to its location, its diverse landscape or countless other reasons we could mention, the island has been heavily influenced by the various civilisations that have lived here. Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs and Christians, and many others, have all left their footprint on Ibiza. Read more
As you already know, in the Can Planells blog we recommend different places on a monthly basis to enjoy on the beautiful island of Ibiza. Routes, activities, gastronomy and more, so that when you arrive in Ibiza you know exactly what places and things you mustn’t miss.
In this month’s post we will give you some interesting tips for prior to your trip. Specifically, 6 things you should do in preparation for your vacation.
The high temperatures and hustle and bustle of tourists on the island start to go down as we creep into the autumn. And we love it! It’s one of the best and quietest times to get to know this wonderful island while basking in some very pleasant temperatures. That’s why we’d like to recommend some must-do activities for these autumn months:
In our previous post, we visited some of the landmarks on the southwest coast of Ibiza and today we’re continuing our tour even further west.
Like the island itself, this whole of the southwest is brimming with contrasts: remote corners where you can find total peace and stunning natural landscapes or ever-vibrant beaches with a party atmosphere.
Almost 600 km2 make up our beloved island, of which 210 km are stunning beaches. Each one different and special, some made of pebbles and others of fine white sand, virgin or with all kinds of services, …but each and every one of them unique. On our “route” today, we’re going to the south of the island, where we’ll find 3 of the longest: Ses Salines, Es Cavallet and Es Codolar, the first two located in the Natural Park of Ses Salines of Ibiza and Formentera and the third at its edge.
At previous post, we showed some of the most unusual places on the island worth visiting, some more known and others not so much but all, highly recommended. In this case, we will continue going through the north of Ibiza to continue discovering the magic that this part of the island entails.
We’re in one of the most emblematic places of Ibiza today, that goes without saying. It’s located in the southwest of the island and belongs to the town of Sant Josep. You probably already know this beach (even just from pictures) thanks to its unmistakable horizon crowned by the impressive islet of Es Vedrà and her companion Es Vedranell. Besides these unforgettable views, the beach cherishes the odd secret, so let Can Planells reveal them to you:
Agroturismo Can Planells is a countryside hotel full of history and Ibizan soul. It is the place for you if you are looking for a more rural Ibiza, a space of respect and love for the land, use of local products in your cuisine, typical architecture, and calmness and tranquility for your holiday.
A new season is about to start in Ibiza and at Can Planells we are ready to open our doors and enjoy an unforgettable summer together.
In a previous post, we commented on the importance of the preservation of these native species of Ibiza and Formentera because of their cultural and historical value. And we specifically talked about chickens, goats and sheep. These three species already had the recognition of native breed, but in this post, we’ll focus on the remaining two, which don’t yet have this recognition and are classified in a lower group: the Ibizan Rabbit and the Black Pig of Formentera and Ibiza: Read more
