Es Vedra, Ibiza. The 3rd most magnetic spot on Earth.

While you’re here in Ibiza, chances are that comes to mind are some of the best night clubs in the world. And yes, while Amnesia and Pacha are a must see on the island, there is much more than just partying to experience on this mysterious island.
My 2015 trip to Ibiza with Together Week (which you can read all about here) was a trip I won’t be forgetting anytime soon. While there are without a doubt some shady not so clear memories of nights out, there was one trip in particular while in Ibiza that is vividly clear in my memory, my visit to see the mysterious Es Vedra. Es Vedra is a uninhabited limestone rock island soaring 400metres above sea level and situated  2-3km off the western coast line of Ibiza. It can be viewed perfectly from a cliff along the Ibiza coast line. Describing Es Vedra is hard to put into words, it’s a place of natural beauty, intense power and magic that needs to be experienced to be understood.

Es Vedra isn’t exactly easy to get to, with a hire car needed and someone that knows the area or is good at finding their way through winding dirt roads, but the trip is well worth it. I personally was left speechless when Es Vedra first appeared in my eyesight as there’s an immense beauty this hauntingly beautiful rock that needs to be seen to be believed.
Before visiting Es Vedra I knew little about it, other than that it is said be be the third most magnetic spot on the planet after the north pole and mysteries Bermuda Triangle. It’s magnetic field is so powerful that compasses lose their ability to get a clear reading and navigational instruments are useless in the area surrounding the island. Since experiencing the islands power myself, I’ve done a little more research and I’m not the only one that feels there’s more to this magnetic rock than meets the eye. Es Vedra has been the centre of myths, legends and stories for years. Many generations seem to agree that there’s more than meets the eye!

  • UFO sightings and a secret UFO base.

There have been countless UFO sightings around the area of Es Vedra not only in the sky but below the sea. With many ibiza locals believing there is an under water UFO base after sightings of Unidentified Swimming Objects and circular lights beneath the sea that have deterred local boats and fisherman from exploring the surrounding area. At night Es Vedra is said to be a great UFO spotting location, with much activity and clear skies.

  • Healing and Inspiration

The magnetic energy and general vibe of Es Vedra is said to act as a natural place of healing and place of inspiration. Meditating on the coast line of Ibiza with Es Vedra in view is said to be a powerful experience and many locals often make the trip to Es Vedra to meditate and to undertake other spiritual activities.

  • Atlantis

Perhaps one of the coolest legends surrounding Es Vedra is that found directly opposite to Es Vedra on the Island of Ibiza is the ‘natural cave of Atlantis’, suspected as the tip of the long lost city. If you’re curious to find it there’s agruelling unmarked treck. The location of the cave is an Ibiza local secret and isn’t easy to found without a local guide. If you’re lucky enough to find the cave you’ll be rewarded with incredible art works drawn by local artists and a tranquil swimming hole.

  • Sea Nyphms and home of the Phoenician goddess, Tanit.

Es Vedra’s mystical stories go way back 1000’s of years with stories of sea Nyphms and mermaids calling the rock island home.  Es Vedra is also known to be the sacred home and birth place of of Tanit, who is known as the goddess and protector of woman and is well documented in the Ibizan history books.

Skinny Kitchen review: The Healthiest cafe/food

In between long island ice teas and too many Mojitos, even the most dedicated Ibiza raver needs to refuel and reenergise themselves. To help that Wanderlife has found ibiza’s best spot to do just that while on the island!
Skinny Kitchen is without a doubt the best healthy kitchen on the island of Ibiza. During Wanderlife’s recent trip there with Together Week we became Skinny Kitchen obsessed and ended up eating there basically every day. The menu is totally health conscious and vast with a focus on low calorie healthy homemade meals, detox smoothies, protein shakes, vegetarian and vegan options, gluten free dishes and so much more, variety isn’t lacking at Skinny! The cafe is all about eating healthy and leaving with no regrets and I can vouch that you’ll be able to do just that.

Aside from a menu that’s drool worth, Skinny kitchen also offers free solid speed wifi, which on the island of Ibiza is like finding a pot of gold. Yes sadly most Ibiza cafes and hotels are yet to offer reliable fast internet. It seemed to us that the only decent reception could be found in St Antoni, so skinny Kitchen makes the perfect ‘island office’ if you’re a fellow nomad entrepreneur like me you’ll appreciate their connection speed and service.
The Skinny Kitchen menu is overwhelming in the best way possible, so we’ve chosen our top 6 dishes for you to try when you visit!

Skinny Kitchen: Protein Pancakes

Skinny Kitchen: Vegetarian and Vegan options.

There’s a wide range of vegetarian dishes and vegan friendly options at skinny. Two of our favouites though (it was too hard to choose one) would have to be the Perfect refreshing, light summer salad. Watermelon, sprout and walnut with homemade honey and mustard dressing and the Zucchini Pasta with fresh basil, pesto and tomato zucchini noodles topped with parmesan and pine nuts. So clean and fresh!
