Located offshore on the popular beach of Cala d'Hort in Ibiza, you will find the most amazing natural rock feature. This is the place where the Ibicencos used to go during times of hunger and hardship, to gather sea gull eggs for survival. The rock rises 391 metres out of the sea, which gives it the ultimate feel of magic, especially during sunset, as the sun illuminates Es Vedra while the surrounding hills remain in darkness.
It is believed that enormous circles of light, reaching a size of up to 50m in diameter emerge from the sea, which discourages fishermen to work in the area. It is believed that a strong magnetic force emanates from the rock, creating the strange phenomena.
