While you’re here in Ibiza, chances are that comes to mind are some of the best night clubs in the world. And yes, while Amnesia and Pacha are a must see on the island, there is much more than just partying to experience on this mysterious island.
My 2015 trip to Ibiza with Together Week (which you can read all about here) was a trip I won’t be forgetting anytime soon. While there are without a doubt some shady not so clear memories of nights out, there was one trip in particular while in Ibiza that is vividly clear in my memory, my visit to see the mysterious Es Vedra. Es Vedra is a uninhabited limestone rock island soaring 400metres above sea level and situated 2-3km off the western coast line of Ibiza. It can be viewed perfectly from a cliff along the Ibiza coast line. Describing Es Vedra is hard to put into words, it’s a place of natural beauty, intense power and magic that needs to be experienced to be understood.
Es Vedra isn’t exactly easy to get to, with a hire car needed and someone that knows the area or is good at finding their way through winding dirt roads, but the trip is well worth it. I personally was left speechless when Es Vedra first appeared in my eyesight as there’s an immense beauty this hauntingly beautiful rock that needs to be seen to be believed.
Before visiting Es Vedra I knew little about it, other than that it is said be be the third most magnetic spot on the planet after the north pole and mysteries Bermuda Triangle. It’s magnetic field is so powerful that compasses lose their ability to get a clear reading and navigational instruments are useless in the area surrounding the island. Since experiencing the islands power myself, I’ve done a little more research and I’m not the only one that feels there’s more to this magnetic rock than meets the eye. Es Vedra has been the centre of myths, legends and stories for years. Many generations seem to agree that there’s more than meets the eye!
