Sunset in Es Vedrà, Ibiza, Spain.

Sunset in Es Vedrà, Ibiza, Spain.

Es Vedrà is a small rocky island of the south western seaboard of the Spanish island of Ibiza. The island is part of the Cala d’Hort nature reserve and lies 1.5423 miles (2.4821 km) of the coast at Cala d’Hort which is in the municipality of Sant Josep de sa Talaia. The island is uninhabited.
Es Vedrà consists predominantly of mesozoic  limestone, and contrary to the esoteric urban myth of being a special magnetic place, has no (magnetic) metal accumulations. The island we see today is as a result of a geological tumble. 155 million years ago, continuous seismic movements in the earths crust caused great shifts in the Betica Mountain Range. Eventually this caused the splitting of the range resulting in the formation of the Balearic Islands. Continued movement of the ridge which formed the islands caused portions to sheer and split away from the islands. Es Vedrà along with the satellite island of Illa Vedranell and the Illa Tagomago are examples of this action.
