Ibiza, an island of fishing tradition

tradicion-pesquera-ibiza

Ibiza, like the rest of the islands that give shape to the Balearic archipelago, is a territory of fishing tradition. That is why today you will still find many fishermen’s huts distributed all over its coast.

Fishing huts and llaüts

The old fishermen’s huts were used as small shelters to safeguard the boats after leaving the sea to fish. They are made of stones, sabina beams and have a single main door.

We can find them among the rocks, cliffs and in the furthest corners of the island since the huts built at those points to protect them from the sea’s waves and bad weather.

Today, these huts continue to be used, not so much by professional fishermen but by amateurs who have inherited the huts.

The most original and curious about approaching to them are their springs. These are handmade wooden piers. Another of the curiosities of these houses is that they still have inside the cylindrical crank drum; some of them are more than 100 year old, they serve to raise boats.
