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.
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.
I've been here a couple of times and it has always been so worth it. Whichever time of the year you come to Ibiza, Cala Tarida is always absolutely beautiful and the water is so clear! You will definitely enjoy it.
