What about drinks, shops and hotels?

There is the Pou des Lleó beach bar right on the beach to drink something new, like a draught beer; they also have tapas.

We suggest Morna Agrotourism for accommodation; live the feeling of living in the countryside of Ibiza, surrounded by pine trees, fruit plants, Mediterranean nature along with all the comforts of a hotel, wifi, nutritious breakfast, swimming pool, peace and quiet.

We still suggest the Las Dalias Market in this part of the island to enjoy shopping with the island’s hippie spirit, is in the town of San Carlos.


Pou des Lleó is one of the island’s loveliest coves. But don’t expect a long beach with all the comfort and activity Playa d’en Bossa, Las Salinas or Talamanca provide. These northern coves are wilder, and calmer so bring your booties, diving goggles, towel and even your dog to enjoy the adventure!
