South Route – Es Vedrà

Departure from Ibiza Route 1

Once we leave Ibiza, we head up to the south of the island. When we pass Es Freus, we will make the first stop near the defense tower of ses Portes, in Cala Pluma. A small and hidden beach, in the continuation to the North, of which, is Salinas. Here we will enjoy impressive turquoise waters and it is where we take the first bath.

We will continue sailing to west towards Cala Jondal. On this beach you will find one of the most outstanding restaurants on the island and the emblematic beach club, the Blue Marlin. The bay (cala in Spanish) offers a sensational swim in its crystalline waters with a sandy bottom that contrast with the diverse colors offered by the rock formations of the bay. On the north side, limestone with shades of gray and white; on the south side, more clayey and reddish rocks.

We will return to the west and head towards Porroig, a wide area that offers us various places to anchor, a natural port with a sandy bottom and seagrass and shallow depth and surrounded by typical fishermen’s huts. Further west we find Es Torrent, Ses Boques and Cala Llentrisca, bays with mixed rocky bottoms, posidonia and sand spots, an ideal setting for anchoring and snorkeling. It is possible to book to eat at Es Torrent Restaurant, to enjoy a good atmosphere and exquisite meals. There is also a boatman service.

We will make the penultimate stop at Sa Pedrera, also known as Atlantis. It really is an old quarry where stones were extracted for the construction of the castle wall of Ibiza. The excavations that were made have left the coast with a peculiar composition and offer holes near of the sea surface ,that are filled with the waves forming natural pools.

Finally, we will go to Es Vedrà, located in front of the cala d´Hort  . This is a rock with about 382 m high, protected as a nature reserve since 2002. This island produces a magnetism that surrounds you and you cannot stop looking at it . Urban legends attribute special powers to him. Apart from this, bathing in the waters that surround it is highly recommended.

Besides, it is a magical place to watch the sunset.
