Before you go:
☀️ Best time to Visit Es Vedra: In the early morning when fewer people are around or most ideally at sunset since Es Vedra has an unbeatably beautiful sunset!
🚗 Rent a car: Driving is definitely recommended in Ibiza as things are spread out and getting a taxi or using public transport is difficult. You should book your rental through Discover Cars as it shows you the lowest price across various rental companies.
🏥 Travel Insurance in Ibiza: I recommend SafetyWing which will cover you in case of trip cancellations or any accidents during your travels.
💜 Be comfortable: I got these useful water shoes as the rocky beaches and streets can be challenging and these were stylish and waterproof!
Best time to visit Es Vedra to watch the sunset
The best time to take photos of Es Vedra is 30 minutes before sunset. However, be sure to arrive early to find the perfect spot. I recommend arriving an hour early so you can find a place to watch the sunset. This is a popular sunset spot that fills up quickly. If you’re driving, you’ll especially want to get there an hour ahead to find a good parking spot. When we left, there were so many cars parked in areas that may not be designated parking spots since the lot got full.

Es Vedra Best Viewpoints:
1. Mirador des Vedrà
This beautiful spot is Mirador des Vedrà and can easily be found if you park at the Mirador Car Park and follow the crowds walking approximately 15 minutes til you reach the breathtaking viewpoint. You will find huge crowds here watching the sunset so it’s best to arrive early. Even with the crowds, I was able to get this secluded shot. I absolutely adored watching the sunset here more than any of the other places around Ibiza.

3. La Mirada Restaurant at Hotel Petunia
I actually had the chance to dine at this amazing rooftop restaurant, La Mirada at Hotel Petunia. The sushi was absolutely delicious and I cannot recommend it enough! There was live music when I went in the evening and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and vibe here. Plus, the hotel is absolutely incredible. I would die to stay at this hotel one day but it is definitely an expensive one! You can book a stay there here if you’d like a well-worth-it splurge. The place is huge with many restaurants and hotel rooms offering views of Es Vedra.

This is another incredible spot that is off the beaten track and a little tricky to get to so I’ll explain it as best as possible. Atlantis, also known as Sa Pedreda de Cala d’Hor, is a secret cove and rock formation.
To get here, you need to parking here and walk about 45 minutes by following the pathway and taking a left at the first intersection you see. After hiking for some time, you will start to see a road that goes downhill and you will need to take it to Sa Pedreda de Cala d’Hort. The way here can be difficult and you should bring comfortable shoes.
