I really admire the earth’s magnetic forces and those “special” places where strange things happen. One of them is the Triángulo del Silencio (The Silence Triangle). Its vertexes, three high tips surrounded by water, the rock of Ifach en Calpe, the Dragonera Island southeast of Mallorca and Es Vedra southeast of Ibiza.
The say that compasses sometimes distort its north while sailing this waters, carrier pigeons lose its way and never come back, mysterious sounds can be heard at night, lights go in and out of the sea, place where numerous UFO have been sighted.
The most emblematic of this three “pyramids” is the magical island of Es Vedra, an almost vertical wall that continues to the bottom of the sea with the maximum depth of the coastal waters of Ibiza, which makes it a rocky iceberg, a fantastic and mysterious place where it is easy to relax.
It must be said that many of this stories come from “stoned” minds. Mike Oldfield lived there for a long period of time, and this islet inspired his album Voyager and Tubular Bells.
I’d recommend Comte Cove if you’re tired of Ibiza’s nightclub-hotel-tourist-beach circuit and are looking for something a little less touristy. Head west from San Antonio, following signs for Cala Bassa, and you’ll see signs for Cala Comte. Once you hit the dirt road, you’ll know you’ve made it! The cove is made up of two or three small beaches but one of them is nude, so watch out!!! And there are lots of little islands that dot the water around the cover. If you’re a good swimmer, you can make it out there and have a whole miniature island to yourself. The sunsets here are pretty incredible too, so, after a long day’s work at the beach, go up to one of the little restaurants above the beach and have a nice cold drink while you enjoy the views.
The port of Ibiza offers some of the best views of Dalt Vila, historic downtown. As if it were a postcard, it perfectly frames the sailboats in the foreground surrounded by crystal clear water in the cathedral crowning the mountain to the bottom. Strolling along the harbor not only offers great views but also unique shops and restaurants that are very good for looking but often at very high prices. But you know, after all, it's Ibiza.
Ibiza is no longer the hippie island it once was. However, if you go through the Benirrás beach late one afternoon, you will probably find a small group of hippies taking a dip. The Sunday evening, a huge Batukada is organized in which the drums glad the sunset. There is a lovely small island at the horizon of the creek, it becomes an experience you will not forget ...
The views from the walls are fabulous. Being about to walk next to such historical structures is quite breathtaking. They’re in a good state of conservation and it’s worth seeing them, they’re spectacular.
If you can make it to the highest part of the city, at the foot of the cathedral, you’ll enjoy a great view, although it’s pretty steep…
The taxi driver took us as high as he could and then we had to walk the rest of the way, before heading back down to the sea. It was much more relaxed walking and let us see the cute streets and the entrance with the arch and elevated gate. We even enjoyed a juglar’s performance (street performer/jester).
If you are a low-budget person, I would definitely NOT recommend Cala Bassa. It used to be a very beautiful beach but unfortunately it's now basically owned by the Beach Clubs there and are too overpriced. However, it is a beautiful beach with very clear water.
Dalt Vila means Barrio Alto city and this is surrounded by walls, all households are included within this neighborhood. The broadest point is the square of the Cathedral from which you can go down a few streets wondering around where they are very beautifully restored . It is full of restaurants, which are a little expensive, but of course when you go on vacation, money doesn't matter. It is about the precious days. Day and night have a special charm, no one should go without knowledge of Ibiza Dalt Vila.
One of the world's most legendary albums. So much so, that after you arrive you are not so surprised. Entering the club requires a process. If you do not want to pay the 65 € euros, you can try to get in for free. To do this, you need to know someone, or you can find someone that will give you a pass while you are out sunbathing. The entry, by the way, does not include a drink. The cups inside are 15 € more. The club has several areas with different types of music each, from the house in the style of Ibiza, to R & B. Right in front of the hotel have Pacha, looks good. At Pacha prick the top Djs, or at least the most recognized in the world. My favorite thing is a Swede named Martin Solveig.
Close to Avenida Santa Eulalia des Riu and seafront, next to the harbor, is the exclusive shop of the legendary nightclub. Personally I am not very much in favor of it, mostly by the high prices, but if you like the style and if you want something really representative of Ibiza, then this is a good spot to do it. Besides clothes, the store is huge and you will find children's clothes, so you can dress them in Pacha logo, but I do beg you not to.
