According to legend, Es Vedra – a small, rocky island located off the west coast of Ibiza – was once home to the sea nymphs and sirens who sought to entice Ulysses in Homer's "Odyssey." Others say that it's the tip of the lost city of Atlantis. Whatever the case, Es Vedra does seem to possess magical qualities, especially as the sun sets behind it – at least that's what travelers say after experiencing it.

Recent travelers said that the views of Es Vedra at sunset were worth all the traffic it took to reach the lookout point at the Cala d'Hort beach, calling it lovely – and even magical.

You'll find Es Vedra less than a mile from Ibiza's west coast. You can take a boat tour, from an operator such as Aquabus Ferry Boats, to get up close to the uninhabited island or you can simply gaze on it from Cala d'Hort, which is free to visit. Most boat tours depart from San Antonio, a resort town on the island's western coast.
