Did you know?

They say that Renclí means forsaken, S’Illot des Renclí means the forsaken islet. Probably because a long time ago, long before Ibiza, it was one of the most desirable tourist destinations in the northern coast of Sant Joan that was utterly forgotten. Coves like S’Illot only represented corners of fragile sandstone surrounded by trees and small cliffs with only a few fishermen’s huts. They were poor, forgotten and unreachable places.

What to see:

Actually, the most beautiful thing you can see here, besides the landscape and the sea bed are the coves that are on the sides, before S’Illot des Renclí is Cala Xarraca and then Cala Xuclar. After eating and bathing, take the car and go to one of the coves around.

What to do:

Why not prepare a picnic in a corner on the cove? Bring your favorite food, a bottle of wine, throw in the towel and sunbathe. The small but significant experiences are unforgettable, the incredible landscape in S’Illot des Rencli will be part of your special picnic.
