Mystery rocksThe strange rock formations of Atlantis make for a most peculiar dreamscape, with natural saltwater pools and a multitude of symbols carved into the rocks. Atlantis houses among its rocks a peculiar history that began in the 16th century when the extraction of the stone with which part of the walls of Dalt Vila and the Castle of Ibiza were built, which are a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, were carried out.
Hippie movementThe 60s it was the arrival of the hippie movements on the island, Sa Pedrera de Cala d’Hort was the place where many chose to find peace and harmony. All this is reflected in the rocks where you will see carved fish, Buddhas, words and the symbol of peace. In addition, the hippies baptized it as Atlantis because of the mysticism and energy that surrounds it.
How to get to Atlantis
To get to this mysterious place, it must be said that it is not easy at all, access is somewhat complicated, although it must be said that it is not impossible.
From Sant Josep de Sa Talaia we must take the road that goes to Es Cubells, where before reaching the town you will find a detour to Cala d’Hort. Then you will see a detour to the left towards Sa Pedrera, an unpaved road where you will find a small esplanade where you can leave the car.
Now it’s time to walk to a point on the edge of the cliff where the descent begins along a sandy road to Atlantis (30 minutes down). It is important to do this path with sneakers and to do it for people who do not have vertigo.
