Get to know Es Niu de S’Àguila Cove, Ibiza

Oh, Ibiza… the place you’ve dreamt of for your romantic holidays as a couple; the perfect destination for going nightclubbing with your friends; the cradle of paradisiacal beaches and a space of spectacular vegetation, flora and fauna. But, undoubtedly, the island’s strong point lies in its variety of coves. In Ibiza there exist beaches that are completely unknown to many tourists, making them ideal places for those who wish to get lost in the mediterranean paradise. The little exploitation of these coves implies you can enjoy them completely unspoilt and without crowds. In this post we’re talking about Es Niu de S’Àguila, a magical place and unknown to many.

It consists of an attractive, rocky cove with crystal clear waters, 1 kilometre away from the coast of Es Cubells and 7 kilometres from the municipality of Sant Josep de Sa Talaia. It is 100 metres in length, 10 in width, and has a succession of rocks that lead to the shore. The tale holds that at the peak of the highest one of these four rocks a bird of prey set its nest, giving the cove its name.

This cove is the ideal place for the lovers of the most hidden and unspoilt Ibiza. Es Niu de S’Águila has intense turquoise coloured waters that combine in an ideal manner with the chalk colour pebbles that lie on the shore.

How to get to Es Niu de S’Àguila?

Given that it’s an isolated cove, Es Niu de S’Àguila isn’t accessible by car. This disadvantage becomes an advantage if you’re seeking for calm. That’s why the best way of reaching it is by foot, walking for approximately ten minutes from Ses Bosques cove along the coast.

In order to arrive to Ses Bosques cove, you must take the road in front of Es Cubells church towards the left. One kilometre later, when you’ve reached the cliff, you’ll find a path that descends towards the left in order to access the beach. It’s not a very difficult road, but it’s true that you’ll have to climb some rocks at the last stretch in order to reach Es Niu de S’Àguila. Its advised that you wear comfy and closed shoes to do this walk, given that if you wear flip flops you risk hurting yourself on the rocks.

At the end of this small cove, on the right side, there’s a cliff area where a set of wooden walkways were constructed. If you decide to spend the day at Es Niu de S’Àguila, we recommend you take a parasol with you given that there’s no place to find shelter during midday.
