It is one of the more visited villages on the island during the summer months and the town was born from the idea of a place for relax by artists reflexing the spirit of Ibiza.Therefore, the majority of the buildings in Cala d’Or are painted in a traditional Mediterranean white color.
Josep Costa i Ferrer purchased land in-between Cala Gran and Cala Llonga in 1933 and he built houses in the Ibizan Style. In 1934 a Belgian painter opened the first hotel “Cala d’Or” and the village became a residence for creative painters and the tourism was acquired.
Cala d’Or includes Cala Ferrera, Cala Esmeralda, Cala Serena, Cala Gran and Cala Llonga. Each cala (bay) was used as fishing harbours and where farmers used to wash themselves and their horses after a hard day’s work.
Today Cala d’Or features bars, cafes, restaurants and a fabulous marina.
