Describing Es Vedra is hard as it’s a place of natural beauty, intense power and magic that needs to be experienced in order to be understood.
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.
The magnetic energy and general vibe of Es Vedra is said to act as a natural place of healing and place of inspiration and accumulates a large magnetic energy similar to the one found in places such as Stonehenge, Easter Islands, or Egyptian pyramids. Meditating on the coast line of Ibiza with Es Vedra in view is said to be a powerful experience and many locals often make the trip to undertake other spiritual activities.
There are several cool legends surrounding the enigmatic rock of Es Vedra: the ‘natural cave of Atlantis’ suspected as the tip of the long lost city. The location of the cave is an Ibiza local secret and isn’t easy to found without a local guide. But the legend goes much further and tells stories about paranormal phenomena such as bright beings apparitions, unexplained sounds, and even UFO sightings. Some geologists claim this is not the case, yet there is no denying the way navigational instruments tend to go haywire in the vicinity of Es Vedra, and it is almost impossible to get a direct compass reading. Even homing pigeons get confused whilst flying over the island, often completely losing their sense of direction. Other popular myths surrounding Es Vedra include that it was the home of the sirens and sea-nymphs who tried to lure Ulysses from his ship in Homer’s Odyssey and also the birth place and holy island of the Phoenician goddess, Tanit.
