Pou D’es Lleo, Ibiza

#49 of 51 in Beaches in Ibiza
Platja Pou d'es Lleo is a beach on the north east seaboard of the Spanish island of Ibiza. It is in the municipality of Santa Eulària des Riu and is 11.8km north-east of the town of Santa Eulària des Riu, and 6.3km east of the village of San Carlos.DescriptionThe beach at Pou d'es Lleo is a small crescent of sand encompassed by many typical Ibizan Fishermans rustic boathouses. The cove is in fact a bustling little fishing port and has two seafood restaurants as well as a small beach bar. On both sides of the cove there are cliff paths which lead to many smaller secluded coves. The slipways on the small main beach are always busy with local and tourist launching their boats. Great care should be taken in the port area when swimming as the launching of boats are a regular occurrence for most of the day. The cove is a very popular snorkelling spot because of its interesting rock formations and underwater meadows of Neptune Grass.1936 Republican LandingsDuring the Spanish Civil War Platja Pou d'es Lleo was the location for the re-capture of the island of Ibiza following the rebellion which saw the island fall under the control of nationalist at the start of the conflict.

They had disembarked in the bay, from a task force of republican navy ships made up of two destroyers, four transport ships, a submarine and six seaplanes which were escort by the battleship Jaime Primero. The troops came ashore at Platja Pou d'es Lleo following the advice and guidance of local republicans from the nearby town of Santa Eulària.

  • Excellent Restaurant Next to a beautiful beach to spend the day or walk around. Exceptional Food What is typical is the rice soup or fish We ordered mixed paella and is one of the best I have tried on the island I also Recommend the typical aioli... Excellent See with time if you ask for paella as they usually take a little but nothing you can not bear. High average Prices, but excellent We were a family of 12 and we were treated phenomenal Do Not put all the stars because there was a detail, one of the water bottles was exploded at the bottom because they are glass and despedazò Leaving crystals in the Cup that I was drinking.. We talked to the girl at least they could have put some detail because I obviously did not break the bottle But good.. For everything else very good. I would go Back and recommend it
