Starting from the church in the tiny hamlet of San Vicent, we begin by following a quiet little tarmac lane as it twists and turns its way upwards, skirting Puig d'en Mayans. Soon we are in open, timeless Ibiza countryside with the imposing Talaia de Sant Vicent towering above us to the NE. Passing briefly through a pinewood, we are soon walking a wide dirt road taking us past some remote and handsome houses and begin to descend to join another little tarmac lane. Now we simply follow this lane as it zigzags its way down to the unbelievably pretty and remote little bay called Port de Ses Caletes. We can enjoy the stark beauty of the coastal region, so devastated in the horrendous 2011 fire. Ironically, this tragic event has allowed the walker to see far more of the surrounding terrain than would have been the case when there was dense pine forest here. What a lovely spot to pause for a swim and picnic. From here we will retrace our footsteps briefly before heading off onto a charming little footpath which meanders, climbing all the time, through peaceful country. Reaching a wide track, we now wend our way downwards to pass the local well, Pou de Baladre; and have only a short way to go back to the church.

Checked 25 April 2019. I have made some minor text alterations to sharpen the directions a bit. This remains a truly lovely and varied hike and is highly recommended. Jim Arymar.
