For centuries, Cala San Vicente was one of the remotest spots on the island. If you wanted to reach it, you had to be prepared for a long walk, or a bumpy ride over dirt roads in a donkey cart. Vital food and goods were delivered by boat. Its remoteness was so legendary that it inspired writers to compare the area to remote regions of Tibet. This changed in the 1970s when various hotel complexes sprang up in the bay. Today, Cala San Vicente offers a good tourist infrastructure with restaurants, bars and shops located on the promenade in front of the wide, sandy beach and shimmering sea.
The bay offers a handful of fish restaurants where visitors can enjoy Mediterranean specialities with a glass of wine. A variety of options await watersports fans, including stand-up paddle (SUP) boards, banana boards and surf boards. Despite the intensive development completed before the term sustainability came into vogue, the bay still offers wonderful views of the offshore islet Tagomago and the rugged coastal landscapes. If you drive a few kilometres to the village of the same name, San Vicente, you can gain an insight into the area’s cultural history: above the bay lies the cave Es Culleram, which is dedicated to the legendary goddess Tanit.
