This is a hike on its own, takes a while to get there, park as near as you can to torre den savinar or AKA Torre del Pirata and walk walk walk.
This is just in front of the magical island of es vedra, i would not suggest this place to go with kids as it´s very steep.
This man carved into the rocks site is very unique, the used these stones “mares”, for the walls at Dalt Vila in Ibiza town, as the rock is quite easy to cut.
Place loved by hippies specially in the 60 as its was somekind of place of cult.

Sa punta Grossa Lighthouse
Located past Cala San Vicente beach is another hard to find unique place but well worth the hike.
