Atlantis Ibiza | top spots to visit by boat

Atlantis Ibiza? Wasn't Atlantis expected to be, indeed, in the Atlantic?! Turns out it depends who you ask, women and gentlemen.

Situated toward the south-west of yacht rental Ibiza, Atlantis, officially known as Pedrera de Cala D'Hort, is a rough bay directly before that incredible Ibiza milestone, Es Vedra, reputed (among other different areas) to be the tip of the legendary lost mainland of Atlantis.

The bay of Atlantis is where the stone used to construct Dalt Vila was quarried, back in the old fogs of time. As the stone was quarried, peculiar looking mathematical molded pits were made, which throughout the long term, turned out to be brimming with seawater. The outcome? A characteristic spa, dear peruser, kindness of earth's life giving force and a lot of anonymous, yet much appreciated, old stonemasons.

Tidal ponds

There are a few tidal ponds at Atlantis. Some resemble a steaming shower as the new seawater is warmed by both the sun and the limestone rocks. Others, with more shade, are somewhat cooler, yet delightfully warm. They all skin-tinglingly appear differently in relation to the a lot cooler ocean temperature. The water in the tidal ponds is pale turquoise, completely clear and there are a few extraordinary precipice bouncing spots. The straightforwardness of the encompassing ocean and nature of swimming is unrivaled.


Beside the odd, hollowed, mathematical, moon-like appearance of Atlantis and her awesome tidal ponds, you'll likewise track down bunches of uncommon examples and images cut into the stones. Additionally numerous secretive little heaps of stones, slyly organized into stacks. There is a lot of conflict about these heaps of stones and what they mean. Our #1 hypothesis is that they are contributions for the Sun God, Baal, authentic accomplice of Tanit, goddess of the moon.

The goddess of Ibiza: Tanit

Tanit, when portrayed cleverly as a 'great time young lady with a firearm' was the Carthaginian goddess of the moon and was pronounced the defender goddess of yacht rental Ibiza, when the Carthaginian domain supplanted that of the Phoenicians, around 600BC. A sanctuary was worked for her, on the site of the current house of God, utilizing rock quarried from Atlantis.

It's expressed that in antiquated days, on the off chance that you needed support from Tanit, what to do was to go to Atlantis at the hour of the full moon. The custom was to move for Tanit (additionally the goddess of dance) and leave a contribution for her, alongside your solicitation for help. It's additionally said that Ibiza's agnostic roots are right up to the present day, fit as a fiddle and that occasionally, at the full moon, outlines of ceremonial moves to Tanit can in any case be seen.


On the off chance that you're up for a precarious move up the sand rises, you'll likewise find the well known 'Buddha cave,' a characteristic haven painted meticulously with a picture of the Buddha a long time back, back in Ibiza's radical prime of the 1960s and 70s.

We're talking Grandiose with a capital 'C' dear peruser.

Thus, in the event that you might want to visit a smidgen of Ibiza's old culture, while partaking in your Ibiza boat sanction, we suggest heading for Atlantis. Despite the fact that you can get to Atlantis by walking, it's quite hard going. Think essentially a half-hour sliding and scrambling down the mountain and a burdensome, least 45-minute move back up. There are zero offices thus you'd have to take all necessities on your back. An experience? Indeed. A perseverance test? Too! Also it's in no way, shape or form simple to find.
