Las Salinas Nature Reserve in Ibiza and Formentera consists of a large ecological unit, with a history going back 2,000 years. Its salt flats produce the famous Ibiza Salt, which is sold across the island and in some of the most expensive stores in Europe. The sand dunes, pine forest and salt flats attract thousands of visitors every summer, and the beautiful Las Salinas beach is one of the Mediterranean's most popular. Not to be missed are the chiringuitos along the beach, huts on the white sand that serve up food, music, hammocks, sea views and sunsets to a mixed crowd of locals, nudists, young families, footballers and jet setters. If you come prepared with proper walking shoes and water, head to the left side of the beach, where you'll find a rocky area and a small path that leads through the pines to the island's Southernmost point and La Torre de Ses Portes, an old defense tower against the pirates of the Mediterranean. Continue on, and you'll reach Es Cavallet.
