One of the most amazing natural environments of Ibiza is the Ses Salines Natural Park. It is a valuable ecosystem of flora and fauna where salt and ponds are prominent, making its landscapes and beaches unique.
The Ses Salines Natural Park and the marine and land reserves linked to the Park extend from the south of Ibiza to the north of the island of Formentera, and between them there is a beautiful seabed which is home to a large extension of meadows of posidonia oceanica, declared as World Heritage. The Park is a clear example of the wealth of Mediterranean biodiversity. This place serves as a resting and nesting area for many birds during their migration. As a natural space of special interest, it encompasses a set of land and marine habitats with ecological, scenic, historic and cultural value such as the Torre de vigía of Sal Rossa.
Furthermore, the Ses Salines park offers locations with a lot of charm such as the pebble beach of Es Codolar from which a magnificent sunset can be contemplated, and the white sand beaches of Es Cavallet (very special for its dunes), and the beach of Ses Salines, near to the salt works, from which the loading of shipments of salt can be observed.
Finally, don’t hesitate to make a stop along the way to see the light reflected in the pools of the salt works, especially during sunset. The church of Sant Francesc and Park Interpretation Centre are also worth visiting, examples of Ibizan architecture.
