The precise location of this remarkable coastal landscape in Ibiza has always been somewhat of a closely guarded secret. Any write up in the guidebooks told great tales of this strikingly angular piece of spiritual wonder and then signed off with a frustrating finale instructing you to seek it out for yourself when all we want is to know where the hell it is and where do we park our moped. And of course it is for this very reason that its location was so guarded. With mass tourism comes minor idiocy and some things in Ibiza must remain sacred. So after much investigation, painstaking research and a series of sit downs with the elders of the island’s hippy community, we eventually found the location in Mixmag.
As we approached along a classically rugged Ibizan country lane with potholes deep enough for two Es Vedras to fall into, we came to a shuddering halt and made the rest of the first stage of the journey to the cliff edge on foot. With a panoramic view out to sea and beneath the blistering midsummer heat, we defied the terms and conditions of our travel insurance and listening to our spiritual guide, Mixmag, made our way down the side of a cliff. We bravely battled through crags, crevasses, bushes, hippy outposts, carvings, stone stacks and discarded blood stained Havaianas during our descent to this natural utopia. And there it was; the Holy Grail… Atlantis. Sa Pedrera. Essentially, a quarry. But this was no ordinary quarry. It was from here that the Phoenicians extracted huge stone blocks that they loaded onto their ships and took to the capital where it would be used to create the 1,800m fortified walls of Dalt Vila. Astonishing.
The landscape left behind from the excavation is a series of angular stairs, platforms and ridges that jut out from the natural cliff face and coastline to create yet another wonder of Ibiza. It is breathtaking. As you explore this creation, you find within some sections of the formation rock pools that are filled with dream like crystal clear water just the perfect depth to plunge your face into once you reach the end of your hike. Plus the cove at the far end for a well earned swim is the ultimate finish line in this incredible adventure. Wow. This place had such a huge impact on us for a number of reasons, not least the grueling walk back up the cliff in 40 degree heat which we must never speak of again. We simply had to mark its significance with a very special print that sums up the history and beauty of this place in one.
