Small village on the south coast of the island of Ibiza

featured in Towns & villages Updated

Situated in the municipality of Sant Josep de sa Talaia, this pretty small village offers stunning views over the southern coastline.

One of the tiniest villages it takes a mere five minutes to walk around, however the beauty of it can keep you here for much longer.

Containing a beautiful church at its centre there are only two bar/restaurants, but the views are really what make this a point of interest. Situated on top of a cliff you can look down into the clear and turquoise waters and via several winding paths you can make your way down to the shore line.

History & Culture in Es Cubells

Es Cubell’s church is small, whitewashed and has lateral buttresses. It was founded in 1864 thanks to the effort of a Carmelite Monk called Francesc Palau, who played an important role in the island’s history, since he spent long periods of his life as a hermit in the islet of es Vedrà. There is a sculpture next to the temple commemorating his life.
