The Six Most Picture-Perfect Spots on Ibiza
A Note From Greg: When I think of Ibiza, I think of foam parties, club music, beaches and spring break. However, did you know that this popular Spanish island has lots of beautiful sights to see during the day? Since I’ve never been, I asked my friend Jennifer to write up a few ideas of things you can photograph on Ibiza. Take it away, Jennifer…
Ibiza is no slouch when it comes to picture-perfect locations. In fact, the Balearic island has a rich abundance of beauty spots and picturesque views perfect for amateur snappers to take memorable pictures. To help you take the best pictures on your trip to the White Island here are six of the most picture-perfect locations in Ibiza.
One of the most recognizable landmarks on Ibiza, Es Vedra is the ideal location to take some photos. The iconic rocky outcrop of an island adorns postcards and tourism brochures, and is easily one of the most recognizable features of the area. The most popular place to photograph it from is the Cala D’Hort beach and if you time it right you should be able to snap some beautiful pics of the island as the sun sets behind it.
The island’s capital Ibiza Town is a buzzing mini-metropolis. Thanks to its scenic harbour, whitewashed buildings, and the hill-top Catedral de Santa María, the town doesn’t want for views. But perhaps the most scenic part of all is the Dalt Vila, literally translated as the “upper town” this area makes up the city’s old town. With winding, cobbled streets leading to numerous stunning viewpoints down to bay, exploring the Old town by foot is sure to yield some super pictures.
One of the most famous beaches on Ibiza, Cala Conta is usually busy all year round. But don’t let that distract you from the natural beauty all around. With its lovely views out to the small islands dotted around its shore, combined with its turquoise waters makes this an excellent spot for photographers.
Café del Mar
The famous Café del Mar combines one of the most scenic spots on Ibiza with one of its best bars. Thanks to its position on the west coast the bar is perhaps the best place on the island to watch the sunset. You’ll find few more beguiling and photo friendly locations than “the café by the sea”.
There’s nowhere better to find panoramic views of Ibiza than from the island’s highest point. Sa Talaiassa is 1,500ft high and is a great place to take pictures as the island spreads out beneath you. The name itself means “watchtower” in Catalan, so you can certainly expect good views!
As popular as Ibiza is with tourists you’d be forgiven for thinking that there were no undeveloped beaches left. Well, you’d be wrong. Ses Balandres offers a delightful slice of unspoiled Balearic beauty. Thanks to the slightly tricky way into the cove, which includes navigating a rickety wooden ladder, you will often find no one else on its shores, making is perfect for picturing Ibiza’s natural splendor. The steep cliffs and clear water make it one of the most spectacular places on the island.
