Sunset Magic

This golden beach is known for its uninterrupted front-row seats to one of Ibiza’s most awe-inspiring spectacles: the island of Es Vedrà, a mystical limestone rock legendary for its magnetic energy. As the sun dips below the horizon, indulge in sensational seafood and awe-inspiring views at the nearby clifftop restaurant Es Boldado.

Why We Love It

There is no comparable sunset experience to catching the sunset over Es Vedra. Call it ‘woo-woo,’ but the island legend that speaks to it being one of the most magnetic points in the world coupled with the awe-inspiring sunset views, and it’s during experiences like these that you wonder if you actually can feel the energy emanating off the famed rock.
