Spain, Ibiza – Travelling Around the Island I
Our travels on the island began at sunset on the beach of Ses Variades. Located at the second largest city of Sant Antoni de Portmany. The next day we went to Cala d'Albarca as adviced by the locals. The road from there unpaved and with potholes, but we wanted to get as far as we could, but then we had to. We entered pine forest, which smelled beautiful and along the way we continued to the huge cave that was below us. Near the cave is a stone bridge, which was the result of erosion. From there, we continued up to the stone bay of Cala S'Albarca. It is lined by high cliffs and lies on the northwest coast of Ibiza. The place is breathtaking, and for adventurous characters we have a great message, you can climb the rocks in the area.
Our next stop was Torres des Molar. It is located on high cliffs and overlooking Port de Sant Miquel. Although it is a defensive tower, it never served for defence purposes. A rocky road leads again to this tower, but you can go up the car upstairs. The views of the surroundings are really beautiful. Our attention was drawn to the private island of Illa de la Ferradura. We took a moment and then went on.
We went to take a swim to the Beach of Sant Miguel. Together with the beaches of Cala Xarraca and Cala de Portinax are vibrant at night. Many people gather there and you can hear the drumming until sunset. The atmosphere is absolutely fantastic. After sunset, this beach turns into a show where people show different tricks of fire. They have flammable rods, balls, hoops and makes incredible pieces of them.
Today, you will also join us to see the southwest of Ibiza, where there are parks and nature reserves. The most famous one is Es Vedra, a magical island that protrudes from the sea and is known to have increased magnetic activity. You can even swim to it. It is definitely worthwhile to wait until evening and enjoy the sunset. The unforgettable game of colors reflecting from the sea level and from the rock offers a quintessential spectacle.
I really recommend to visit these places. Climbs and walks along the cliffs are amazing. Occasionally, you'll get a little bit dazed, but it's not a problem to go to the beach and refresh yourself. It's great to get so many places in a day.
