It is neither a beach nor a cove, and yet it is one of the favourite spots chosen for travellers and local peope to enjoy a bath. Located on the west coast of Ibiza, a few minutes drive from San Antonio and Moto Luis main office, Punta Galera is an old coastal quarry whose natural terraces attract nudists and other bathers today in search of tranquility.If you are thinking about renting a car in Ibiza during your holidays, include Punta Galera on your west route and discover one of the most beautiful coastal corners of the island.

Punta Galera will like you if…

– You are fond of nudism. Its stone platforms have become one of the favorite refuges for nudists. If you don’t feel like getting rid of the swimsuit, there’s no problem: in Spain there’s no coastal corner that is uniquely nudist or textile. So enjoy the bath as you like the most…

– You look for natural spaces. The cove is flanked by cliffs and from it you have beautiful views over the island of Sa Conillera.

– You want to see the sunset. Due to its orientation towards the west, you can enjoy a beautiful sunset.

– You like to jump into the water. From the natural terraces of Punta Galera you can jump into the transparent waters without problems. If you’ ve never been there before, don’t be overconfident and observe well from where the other bathers jump.

-You are going to move around west of Ibiza. Punta Galera is located a few kilometres from San Antonio, between Cap Negret and Cala Salada. To get there, you have to go by car direction Cala Salada and enter the urbanisation of the same name following the street that you see on Google Maps that descends to the cliffs.

A piece of advise:

In Punta Galera there’s no kind of service, so you should take water and food, if you are going to spend a long time there. Also keep in mind that it is difficult to escape from the sun, so do not forget the sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses. Being all stone it it difficult to use a parasol.

Avoid Punta Galera if…

You don’t like to lie on rock or you don’t find it easy to climb them to get out of the sea.
