One of the most famous attraction of the island are their magnificent sunsets. The colors, the silence and stillness that one can feel in this magic moment when the sun says goodbye to illuminate other areas of the planet is evident at this time.
Adding as well the sea and sky as background, we have in front of us a wonderful background unable to forget for long time. These ochres, oranges and purples colours that arise from the sunsets are colors that make the end of the day a great performance.
The sun is hiding between islets, playing with boats and the sea that is cutting it as it approaches to the horizon line making the sea a veil where hides the sun.

No doubt at all that Cala Compte is one of the best places to see that moment where the day changes to the night. To feel that magic moment that turns day to night.

The summer comes to the end, and the days get shorter and the nights longer... Still is possible to enjoy the Mediterranean Sea that still retains an excellent temperature for bathing and enjoying to swim, also is a good time for navigation.

Still the marinas on the island are at the top of yachts and sailing boats, luxury yachts are a major lure for people walking near them as there are some of them that are truly impressive. The best yachts in the world meet on the Island sometime in the summer. There are also sailing boats, some of them luxury. Where these sailing boats dock together there is a chaos of ropes, spars and sails. The navigation of these is more sport than luxury boats.

Which one most impressive, sheltered harbor. During the day time they are visiting the famous beaches of Ibiza.
At dusk, the golden sun stains the environment, making with reflections from the sea with gold, particularly gold, which makes it more impressive the ships and all over the port.

The parade of boats continues, new boats arriving each late afternoon to fill the port where a mooring is rarely empty. Boats of different countries and different colors, competing to see which arouses more admiration from passersby.

The lush green forest that contrasted with the blue Mediterranean on the northern coast of Ibiza has become black, completely burnt and nearly 400 hectares of ecologically valuable forest burned. The area is called by locals "Es Amunts", a great green area full of pines and junipers.

Homes miraculously saved from the burned down, now those white walls are contrasting with the blackness of the destruction of this forest that turned black and will need up to 30 years to return to what it was.

One feels sad to see the desolate place that few days ago was a former lush and green forest, many animals have also perished in the flames. The causes I suppose are many, the important thing is that it could have been avoided.

Many cars completely burnt, were removed by trucks, I was struck by the sight of one of its truck drivers who came out smoking a cigarette. Sometimes for as little, it can be done a great destruction. People have to be care in these places...
