Visiting Es Vedrà in Ibiza
How to get to Es Vedrà in Ibiza

Es Vedrà is a 400 metre high limestone, island that is situated just off the south-western coast of Ibiza and remains uninhabited by humans. It was top of my Ibiza bucket list to witness it whilst we were visiting at the start of August and it was absolutely magical.

It may initially seem strange that going to look at a big rock in the middle of the sea was top of my 'to do' list when visiting the famous Balearic party island, but Es Vedrà is an island that is shrouded in mystery and mythical legend. It is said to be the third most magnetic point on Earth, after the North Pole and the Bermuda Triangle. Although there is no scientific evidence to back this up, navigational devices are supposed to go haywire the closer you get to the rocky island. According to popular myths, it was once also the home to the sirens who attempted to lure Ulysses from his ship in Homer's Odyssey and that part of the island was used to build the pyramids in Egypt. My personal favourite myth that is associated with Es Vedrà is that the island is in fact the tip of the sunken civilisation of Atlantis. There have also been many UFO sightings that have been spotted hovering both around limestone island and beneath the sea's surface. A few Ibizan locals now believe that there is a UFO base beneath the island of Es Vedrà as local boats have spotted lights nearby beneath the sea.

It's undeniable that the island omits an unusual healing and mystical energy that stops you in your tracks as soon as it appears on the horizon. It's this energy that draws people from all over the globe to venture to the island for meditation and other spiritual practices. It's truly a place of natural beauty, the most intense energy and ethereal magic that needs to be experienced in person. It's truly too difficult to describe the peace and tranquility that fills the atmosphere around the island.

Es Vedrà isn't easy to get to, and the only way you're able to get to the perfect viewpoint is by hiring a car in Ibiza. If you type 'Es Vedrà' into your sat nav or smartphone, it'll take you to the west coast of Ibiza and as you reach the coast you'll witness the rocky island appear out of the ocean. If you head towards the Torre de Savinar (the old pirate watchtower), you'll be taken along a winding dirt road that will lead to a small (free!) car park. From here it's just a small, five minute walk to the edge of the cliff where you can admire the elusive wonder in all its glory.

If you're feeling particularly energetic, you can also take the journey down to the secret, natural cave of Atlantis. It is a bit of a challenging trek down the cliffside and there are no signposts or maps on the way down to help you navigate your way to it, but I'm told that it is absolutely worth the journey. Unfortunately when we visited Ibiza was in the midst of a heatwave named 'Lucifer' that struck across southern Europe, so it was far to hot for us to attempt the trek. Considering we were told the journey down to Atlantis was tough, I can only imagine how difficult it is to get back up the cliffside to the car park afterwards. However, if I were to ever return to Ibiza, I would definitely attempt the adventure down to Atlantis to see what awaits at the bottom.

Whether you consider yourself as a spiritual being or not, if you're ever in Ibiza make sure you experience the aura of Es Vedrà, because its magic is undeniable.
