Ibiza Is the ideal place for the perfect photo. A peerless paradise and one that is extremely “instagrammable”, with snapshots shared on the social network garnering thousands of “likes” and comments, creating a trend, and imitated by people all over the world, of all ages and from every walk of life. If you’re coming to Ibiza, bring your mobile phone, digital or analogue camera, or your Go Pro, and discover the hidden beauty spots that will charm and captivate, yielding picture postcard views of your trip to the magical island.
Ses Portes del Cel, in Santa Agnès de Corona: In the north of the island, you will find this small woodland on the cliffs of Pla de Corona. From the lookout point, you can watch the sun go down and capture an amazing view of the Ses Margalides islets from one of the most natural and archetypal landscapes in Ibiza. As its local name implies, a photograph in this magical place could well bear the title “The gates of heaven.”
Es Vedrà: There are innumerable legends surrounding this little island, many steeped in mystery and mysticism, while others are straightforward, celebrating its great beauty and unique energy that ensure no one is indifferent to its charms. Cala D´Hort, the beach at the foot of the islet, is a beauty spot which you can enjoy, and then capture in a photo the majesty of this uninhabited limestone rock which emerges from the sea, rising to a height of 400 metres, from where you will be able to contemplate one of the most amazing sunsets so typical of the island.
Dalt Vila: The walled old town of Ibiza harbours hidden corners, full of culture, charm and romance. The historic centre of the island’s capital is girded by imposing city walls, dating from the 16th century and built on a hill, the Puig de Vila, and it is an essential visit for anyone wishing to photograph the real Ibiza. It is an ideal scenario for losing yourself among its narrow, cobbled streets, charming shops and bars, secret alleyways, whitewashed walls, and its typical doorways, and capturing some unique snapshots of the town.
Sa Caleta: The proper name of this little beach is Es Bol Nou but it goes by the name of the local area in the south-west of Ibiza known for the ochre coloured clay of its soil and its turquoise waters. Its red cliffs and hidden nooks and crannies that form a type of balcony that seems to float over the sea, form the backdrop for thousands of original photographs.
Ses Salines Natural Park: This is an ideal place to take your camera and wander around the huge mounds of Ibizan salt, the ancient salt pans, the little cove Cala Pluma and the long sandy beaches of Ses Salines and Es Cavallet, or capture the magic of a sunset at Cap des Falcó. Posing with a scenario like this is the easiest thing in the world.
Cala Xarraca: In the north of Ibiza, Cala Xarraca has become one of the most photographed places on the island thanks to its inimitable charm and its swing which launches you out over the sea, straight to paradise.
Cala Llentia: This spot hosts a genuine work of art by the Australian sculptor Andrew Rogers, entitled “Time and Space” also known as the “Ibizan Stonehenge” which is one of the major attractions of this beach and one of the most frequently photographed monuments of Ibiza in recent years. This sculpture consists of solid basalt columns weighing 420 tonnes, and according to its author it represents a vision of time and space and how it interconnects with humanity.
Sa Figuera Borda: This is one of the most jealously guarded corners of the island that few Ibizans share, which can be reached by land or sea, a type of grotto, where yoga aficionados can practise and then bathe in the crystal clear waters. This beauty spot is just a short distance from Platges de Comte with its boathouses and jetties where small craft are moored. Take an enjoyable stroll and access the beach from the cliff top, descending the stairs. The views of the islet of S’Espartar are magical, and photos of this secluded cliff top are some of the most beautiful that you will take in Ibiza.
All the places mentioned here are environmentally extremely important and so we remind you that if you visit you should take great care to respect the surroundings, making sure that you do not play loud music or drop any rubbish, and remember that the best snapshots are those that remain in your mind’s eye and they deserve to be recalled and cherished as a memorable experience.
