This uninhabited mythical rock island is located a mere 2.5 km off the south western coast of Ibiza. The small towering rock is 413 m tall and was formed about 155 million years ago. The records show that it was inhabited once in 1855 by Carmelite preacher Francis Palau y Quer (1811-72) following his exile from Catalonia. I first noticed... More

Stunning views of Es Vedra ('The Old One") can be seen from Ibiza's south west coastline. Home to sirens and giants, endangered species of goats and falcons, and also once the home of Tanit, Phoenician goddess of the moon. Additionally, Es Vedra was portrayed as Balihai in Rodgers and Hammerstein's "South Pacific". To give you a sense of the scale... More

We visited with family.

Lovely place to have a dip in the sea (at Cala d'Hort), clear water where you can see the fish. Nice backdrop of Es Vedra. Very busy even on not a great day.

Just breathtaking - when we visited the top of Es Vedra was cloaked in cloud, giving it a magical and mysterious aura. The view from the coast is just amazing and constantly changing as the weather moves round this huge rock.

I arrived there without any acknowledge or expectation about the place and I have been so positively surprised! The view is simply amazing! I really felt a magic atmosphere and I have been really happy to eat my lunch sitting in the shade in front of this spectacular mistery.

One of the to do things in Ibiza..watch sunset over es Vedra. We got to the view point after a bumpy car ride. There were some people around, but not hoards. Thankfully it was not noisy. We could sit , enjoying the beautiful view and taking pictures or the sunset and us. Calming and lovely.

The road to get there was horrible but in the end.... WOW. Simply amazing the view over the top with the boats passing next to Es Vedra. I wish I have been there for the sunset... for sure is even more perfect . Definitely a must see when you go to Ibiza
