Take a Hike at Atlantis
before the chilly winter weather sneaks in, get out and explore the spiritual core of Ibiza by hiking. One of the most popular Ibiza hikes is Atlantis, an old quarry where stones were cut and used to build homes and defense towers for the island. The rock formations are perfectly carved and sunk into the side of the mountain with a view of the magical rock, Es Vedra, just opposite. The area before your hike is reachable by car or scooter, and don’t forget to take water and snacks. The hike down will take about 20 minutes, but it’s the hike up that is the tough part. But hey, summer bodies are made in the winter!
Directions: Head over from Es Cubells to Cala d’Hort. Just after the crest of the hill make a left onto the small camino before the road turns to the right to es Boldado. On the camino you will be able to see Es Vedra ahead of you. At the end of the road, you’ll find a place to park. Atlantis will be in front of you. Prepare for the trek down the mountain and keep to the right. You´re welcome!
