Friday was the first full day here in Ibiza. I thought it would be a great opportunity to get out of the hotel zone and explore the island. The hotel has a shuttle that takes the guests to different beaches around the island. It was recommended to make a visit to Cala D'Hort to see the beautiful Es Vedrà, so that's what I did. Unfortunately the shuttle broke down but the kind staff at the hotel took time out of their day to take me down in their personal car. It was a great experience to get a more personal take on the region and so extremely nice of the staff to do this for me.
Es Vedrà is regarded as one of the most beautiful vistas in all of Ibiza. It sits in a cove surrounded by the beautiful Mediterranean landscape. The rocky island towers over 300 meters high! No one goes out there except the local padres once a year to survey the area and I think they have a ceremony out there. People come from all over Europe to meditate at this place. The locals say that the rocks have healing powers. It was definitely a sight I will not forget.
