Mysterious Es Vedrà
Approximately 2 km off the western coast of Ibiza in the waters at Cala d'Hort there is a big volcano consisting of limestone and which is claimed to be one of the most magnetic places in the world.
With a height of 380 meters, the magnificent Es Vedrà is towering high above sea level and dwarfs everything around it, including her smaller sister Es Vedranell which is 127 meters high. The island is a nature reserve and is uninhabited. Although it is well known thanks to both popular legend and the goat populations that live there, the reason for protecting these islands in fact resides in their endemic botanical species, their lizards and their colonies of Eleonora’s falcons (Falcon Eleonorae). This falcon is a rare bird counting merely around 600 couples in the world. They breed in Es Vedra and the island of Tagomago which is situated at the eastern part of Ibiza.
Many myths and legends are told about Es Vedrà The claim of being a "special magnetic place" is a mere urban legend without any scientific geological base. The myth reads that this island has mystical powers, therefore it is the inspiration for many artists around the world. The bay of Cala d'Hort has a fantastic view on this mysterious island.
When we look at Es Vedrà it looks like a woman lying on her back in the water ….Can you see it too?
