What to do in Formentera, where the Balearic paradise is located

Holiday in Formentera, Balearic island where there is a dream sea and, at the same time, you can enjoy a pristine natural environment.

The island of dreams and of summer, sun and relaxation: it is Formentera, in the Balearic archipelago, off the Spanish coast of the Mediterranean Sea. An island of 83 square kilometers and 12 thousand inhabitants, almost completely flat, with only one plateau that reaches 200 meters above sea level.

An ideal island to recover from the nocturnal follies of the most cheerful and festive Ibiza. Formentera, with its long golden beaches, quiet, lonely in some cases, where you can admire crystal clear waves and delight in the sight of the green hills moved by the light breeze that rises from the sea.

Playa de Illetas and Playa Levante are the two beaches on the northern tip of the island, a stretch of the most popular coast of Formentera, where services for tourists are more numerous and efficient. For those who want a more complete tranquility and are looking for some space, some free beach to practice nudism without difficulty (which is in fact a legal practice throughout Spain), there is Espalmador.

It is therefore enough to reach the very close islet of Espalmador, a natural uninhabited paradise where the only construction is the old Saracen watchtower to find more tranquility. Here the quiet is total and practically all the beaches are frequented by nudists: S’Alga, Sa Torreta, Sa Senyora, En Pou. To reach the island you need to rent a private boat: it is only 2 kilometers from Playa de Illetas.

In contrast, Cala Saona and Migjorn beach are characterized by the privacy and tranquility that you can breathe here. The first, with the blue of the sea that stands out against the red of the rocks, gives a truly rare natural panorama; the second one is among the largest on the island but, since it is located in the extreme south of the island, it is also the least frequented.

The main urban nucleus is Sant Francesc Xavier de Formentera. On the square, the center of social life in the country, overlooks the characteristic parish church, dating back to the eighteenth century, which has no windows because initially it was also used as a fortress and place of protection for civilians from attacks by pirates, which often plundered the island of Formentera and that were the cause of its depopulation.

Sant Ferran de ses Roques, El Pilar de la Mola, Es Pujols and La Savina are the other centers of Formentera. In Sant Ferran, full of bars and restaurants, there is one of the island’s historic sites, the Fonda Pepe, a celebrated meeting place for the children of flowers in the seventies. From Sant Ferran, head towards El Pilar de la Mola, where Wednesday and Sunday are the days of the hippie market; and Es Pujols, which was built close to a natural cove enclosed between two islets. La Savina, in the northern part, houses the small port of Formentera and has all the services and conveniences useful for mooring boats.

 

The municipality of Formentera has prepared twenty itineraries immersed in nature, routes specially designed for tourists and for all those who admire the beautiful landscape and the beauties of the place, walking on it or cycling to reach the most evocative points of the island.

The longest route is the Camì Vell de la Mola (3,000 meters), followed by the Camì de s’Estany (2,700 meters) and the de Dalt de Porto Salè (2,500 meters). Some of these paths can be traveled on foot or by bike, others on foot, such as the Camì de Sa Pedrera or the Camì d’Es Cap.

In the past, Formentera’s economy was based on the extraction and conservation of sea salt. Today, the Riserva delle Saline is a suggestive destination to be recommended to tourists, to be fascinated by the processes of crystallization of salt. At this stage, the salt pans become rosy, the same color as the feathers of the flamingos that arrive there to feed on the micro-organisms present in these large pools.

Some of the most beautiful views of Formentera belong to the Riserva delle Saline and the surrounding sea beds are spectacular and fragile. Precisely for this reason, diving here is allowed only with permission from the Island Council. The spectacular color games that the Saline offer, especially in the morning and at sunset, the opportunity to take memorable photographs.

In Formentera there are three lighthouses: those of Es Cap de La Mola and Es Cap de Barbaria and, in the port, La Savina. The first is the oldest and highest of the island because it stands on a cliff 120 meters further: from here contemplate the sun rising and setting is an unforgettable experience.

Holidays in Menorca: what to see, what to do and when to go

The Balearic archipelago is a fantastic opportunity to be able to devote yourself to the wildest entertainment in the world: if you are going to give you crazy joy, islands like Mallorca and Ibiza represent the top! And yet, the Balearic Islands are not just these two: there are alternatives like Menorca that, often, are not considered as they deserve.

For a holiday that knows how to draw heavily from all the advantages of other islands, adding others, the answer to the question is only one: Menorca! For what reason? Because we are simply talking about a place left in peace by mass tourism, but embellished with incredible beaches (the most beautiful in the Balearics). What to see, what to do and when to go to Menorca, then?

Menorca has been renamed “L’isola della calma”, and this label is certainly not the result of chance! In this place, in fact, the silence and the quiet are the masters: it is impossible to remain “bottled” in the tourist crowd typical of Ibiza and, despite its small size, however, there are opportunities for fun. What are its main features?

Meanwhile, the calm that reigns absolute on its magnificent coasts, but also the beauty of its landscapes, distinguished by a purely lagoon aspect. Then, being very small, just a single trip to discover every hidden corner: especially because of the proximity of the various coves, ideal for trekking enthusiasts. Finally, in Menorca there are not even pubs, clubs, parties and clearly discos: some even dug into the rock!

The climate of Menorca, just like the Canaries, is typically Mediterranean in nature: this means that the summer is particularly hot and sultry, as well as enormously crowded by tourists. That’s why the advice is to organize a holiday at this Balearic island in spring: the best time to enjoy its beauties without stress!

Moreover, it is in this season that there are many offers for accommodation, as opposed to months like July and August: for example, the Barcelò chain offers several opportunities to stay at its hotels in Menorca in the spring. So you can enjoy its sun, its sea and its pristine nature spending less!

What to see and do in Menorca?

First of all the beaches, certainly at the center of your sights: here you will have the opportunity to attend unmissable coastlines like San Bou and Cala Mesquida, together with the famous Cala Blanca! Going beyond the beaches, however, you could visit the Albufera des Grau nature park, made fascinating by its small islands that animate this wonderful lagoon.

Then, you should not for anything in the world give up a visit to Monte Toro: a sanctuary that will capture you even if you are not religious, given the incredible panorama of the whole of Menorca! If you want to get into the heart of the Minorcan traditions, here is the Plaza Explanada handicraft market, along with the mystical archaeological site of Naveta des Tudons. Do not miss the Park Aquarok and the Cammini dei Cavalli, to ride on a quadruped, on foot or by bike!

Asia, how did you spend the last year?

Great entertainment, between Miami’s mega villas and private parties, dressed only with a thousand glitters on them and a shining coronet. Florida and in particular Miami are magical places where everyone can feel “wild and free”, that is to say “wild and free”!

How will you spend the other days waiting for the challenge to become “Isolana”?

Now I’m heading to Mexico, Tulum, for the sound festival where there will be thousands of people listening to the best DJs of Ibiza and the world with their new music and “discoteque” rhythms. Then I will end my vacation with a trip to Havana, Cuba, where I will finally feel at home with the South American “B side” that I find myself!

Ride of taste here the charming Asia, engaged in this “on the road” vacation in the American continent on the style of Jack Kerouac, to relax and recharge the batteries in view of his projects targati 2018.

Obviously, the year ended up at the top and was resumed in the same way. In Miami I love the “bikini life” and the fantastic parties.

You will have been courted then?

Courtship is nothing short. I could not walk down the street without being approached by gentlemen who proposed dinners, trips and shopping. Currently, however, I remain 100% single!

In Miami you will have glimpsed or crossed many famous people, maybe on Ocean Drive.

Yes, for example the American rapper Travis Scott. Among the Italian Gianluca Vecchi.

Tell us a funny anecdote that happened to you in Miami.

Look, you will not believe it, but I fell from a yacht while I was twerking … an involuntary dive into the sea of ​​almost two and a half meters!

Always at the top our Asia Valente who can show off a golden tan in the program next Monday, looking for many votes to launch it in the empyrean of the Island of the Famous. Ad maiora!

Hotel, residence, house for rent, b & b. There are several facilities to stay in Ibiza, distributed fairly well throughout the island. The best places to sleep depend on the type of holiday you want to do. In fact, they change according to specific needs. Ibiza is good for both groups of friends and couples and families. The island has so much to offer: from the beaches, to the typical restaurants to the nightclubs to the monuments. The choice of the structure and the place to sleep depends on the holiday you want to do. Here’s where to find the best places to sleep on the island.

Ibiza Town. The city of Ibiza is the place where the greatest number of tourists and also the one with the most receptive structures. The island’s main port is located here and the airport is just a few kilometers away. Choose to stay in the city or the surrounding area is convenient for transport and attractions available. Here, in fact, are the main monuments: the Old Town of Dalt Vila with its fortified walls, the archaeological museum and the Punic necropolis. In the immediate vicinity are some of the most beautiful beaches of the island: Talamanca, Ses Figueretes, Ses Salines. Buses to the towns and beaches of the south-western area leave from Ibiza town to Sant Antoni de Portmany, on the opposite side of the island. In the city there are many trendy clubs, from typical restaurants to trendy bars, and shops for shopping. The main nightclubs are nearby or just a few kilometers away. You move easily by scooter. That’s why staying in the city of Ibiza or in the immediate surroundings is good for everyone: for those looking for fun, for those seeking culture, for young people, adults and families. For those who want to have a quiet holiday, on all couples and families, it is better to avoid the nightlife areas, such as Playa d’en Bossa, just outside the city, and the area of ​​the old port where the locals are concentrated. Even the historic center at night is quite noisy. In this case it is preferable to choose the structures in the area of ​​the marina and Talamanca, quieter, those just outside the historic center to the north, where there are many residences, or near the beach of Ses Figueretes. Young people looking for fun, however, will choose hotels or residences with apartments for rent in Playa d’en Bossa, a few kilometers south of Ibiza, the place of nightlife, with night clubs, discos and beach bars with parties not stop.

Sant Antony de Portmany. On the coast of the island opposite the city of Ibiza is Sant Antoni de Portmany, another worldly resort and very popular with young people, especially for the sunset from the Cafe del Mar. Even here, it is better that families and couples avoid the city ​​center to move to hotels and residences near the coves of the west coast. Young groups, on the other hand, have a wide choice of facilities in the city or in the immediate vicinity if they want to save money.

Sant Josep de sa Talaia. If you are looking for absolute tranquility for your night’s sleep, we recommend the residences of Sant Josep de sa Talaia, in the south-western hinterland. Here you will stay in residences of white houses surrounded by nature and overlooking the hills and the sea in the distance. The beaches are just a few kilometers away, the beautiful Cala d’Hort is a quarter of an hour away by car. Obviously this solution is preferable for those who have a car,

Santa Eularia des Riu. The seaside resort of Santa Eularia des Riu is located on the east coast about 15 km north of the city of Ibiza. It is a very beautiful and elegant resort, perfect for couples looking for a romantic and family holiday. It is not a nightlife area for young people. In addition to the city beach, on the Santa Eularia coast, there are many beautiful coves: Cala Longa in the south and Cala LLenya in the north. The whole coast is very beautiful and well served, with numerous residences and even luxury hotels. Santa Eularia is perfect for families, for the tranquility and especially the wide, sandy beaches, with a shallow sea bottom and shaded by pine woods.

Slow spring in Formentera

It is one of the most popular islands in the Balearics, especially in summer, thanks to a clear sea and its enchanting beaches. But in Formentera also beats a green heart that makes it a true paradise for a holiday in the midst of nature out of season. When the mild temperatures, the colors and the scents of the flowers and the absence of crowds allow you to enjoy all its beauty, including the small villages of the interior and the white beaches along the coast.
Formentera is an island that invites calm. For this reason it is also the ideal place to visit on foot or by bike, thanks to its small size and not very demanding slopes.

Just last year, 32 green routes were inaugurated, creating a circuit of over 100 kilometers.
The access point to the island is the port of La Savina, located 3 kilometers from the capital Sant Francesc, a cozy and quiet place, where in addition to the ancient fortress built in the early eighteenth century, is characterized by many local specialties food, craft markets and hippy stalls. From here you can start to discover the island.

 

To the north you reach the peninsula of Es Trucadors, a long tongue of sand that stretches into the sea where there are some of the most beautiful beaches. Like Llevant, Es Cavall d’en Borràs and Ses Illetes, the most famous of the island also to watch the sunset, which offers a unique show at the end of the day. All this territory is located within the Natural Park of Saline d’Eivissa and Formentera, a large protected area for biodiversity. Admission is free for those who access on foot or by bike while paying for those arriving by car or motorbike. The landscape is characterized by white sand dunes alternating with cliffs surrounded by pine woods and juniper sabina di costa. Inside, instead, there are a series of evaporation basins fed by the sea that cover the ground with salt crystals. Next to it, two large pools of water, the ponds of Estany des Peix and Estany Pudent, are the perfect habitat for terns, flamingos and seagulls.
Opposite the peninsula is, as a natural continuation of Es Trucadors, the private island of S’Espalmador accessible to all with local boats. Even here you can take beautiful walks along the coast where, among others, there is the beach of S’Alga, on the west coast.

Returning south, following a flat path of about 30 kilometers, we reach Cap de Barbaria, where the lighthouse of the same name dominates a rocky and deserted landscape. Along the way, it is worth stopping off at Cala Saona, the only real beach on the west coast, with shallow waters and protected from the wind by high cliffs.
To the east, instead, extends the Costa de Tramuntana with low rocks and crystal clear water. It is one of the most peaceful places on the island, where you can walk starting from Racó de sa Pujada along the coast and reach Caló de Sant Agustí, the only town in this area that is highly appreciated for its picturesque fishing port and its many small restaurants. where to taste the gastronomic specialties. Just a 2 minute walk away is Ses Platgetes, two small sandy and rocky bays.

Continuing we arrive near the promontory of La Mola, at the foot of which is the most chic area of ​​Formentera, with elegant hotels and restaurants on the beach that offer traditional local dishes. Going up, however, you reach the Faro de la Mola from where you can enjoy a spectacular view. For a little ‘relaxation on the beach there is Migjorn, 5 kilometers of fine sand in the shape of a crescent that frames the whole south of the island between Es Mal Pas and Es Copinar. It is one of the most magical places on the island where, it seems, that Pink Floyd composed The Dark Side of the Moon. It was a place much loved by hippies in the 60s, and today you can choose the vivacity around the chiringuitos or the calm in the middle of nature.

Ibiza, the island of emotions

A trip (but it’s also a weekend) to discover the essence of the island where everything can happen

Ibiza – the second largest island in the Balearic Islands, after Majorca – has now established itself as the most popular tourist destination during the summer months. Stoves of tourists from all over the world crowd the island in search not only for fun, but also for relaxation and psychophysical wellbeing.

Precisely for this reason, Ibiza (perhaps) has no secrets. We already know it for its trendy clubs and clubs, for its wild coves and its sea that ranges from turquoise to iridescent green (thanks to Posidonia Oceanica, an endemic plant of the Mediterranean Sea that makes the waters transparent and crystalline).

But not everyone knows that in Ibiza the five-star luxury gets married (happily) with the hippy spirit that sets it apart. When you set foot in Ibiza you fall into a sort of ancestral and magical atmosphere. A rare and impalpable alchemy.

Ibiza offers (yet) unexpected sunsets, pure energy, hidden places such as the Casita Verde, in the heart of Sant Josep, the flagship project of an association that acts as a center of environmental education and is aimed at proposing a model of eco-sustainable life through alternative energies. It is the island where everything can happen. Where joy alternates with fear, where one gets lost in the alleys of the old town of Dalt Vila and admires the puesta del sol in Benirrás.

You can wake up in the morning in a five-star villa with the scent of lavender (look at the photos in the gallery and all addresses), take a bath in a magazine pool and then find yourself barefoot at the Hippy Market in Es Canar – it takes place every Wednesday – to look for some trinkets to take home as a souvenir. (In the gallery above all our advice).

Ibiza really makes everyone agree. Families with children who want to relax and enjoy nature, perhaps through an excursion on horseback to the north of the island, or for the adventurers a fun and exciting ride in a hot-air balloon (and the pleasant sensation of floating in the sky), to admire the island from another point of view.

Not to be missed (restaurants and clubs)
The Thursday evening aperitif of the IT Restaurant in the heart of Marina Botafoch, where fashion, style and beauty are mixed. From 19.00 aperitif to the bar with raw and lounge music. Every Monday, do not miss the usual appointment at Flower Power (from May 29th to October 2nd) at the Pacha disco in Ibiza and for the fans of electronic music the Circoloque at DC10. If instead you are more underground try to jump to the Zooproject (the location is a scream) where every Tuesday plays a DJ of our house, the Florentine Federico Grazzini. Do not miss the evening Ants (every Saturday from 4 pm to midnight) at the Ushuaïa.

The beautiful spring of the Balearic islands

The evocative Easter celebrations are an opportunity to discover the archipelago in the best season

Easter is one of the best moments to experience the most authentic soul of the Balearic Islands: the ancient rites, religious traditions and the excellent gastronomic proposal become protagonists in Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera. Not only ancient rites and excellent gastronomy but also the opportunity to go to the discovery of the territory, enjoy the mild climate, the green landscapes in bloom and the scents of spring.

A trip to the Balearics during Easter as well as immersion in a truly mystical atmosphere, is also a dive into the gastronomic tradition: the must for every gourmet are the “panades”, “cocarrois”, the “robiols” and the “crespells” . The panades are based on salty pasta and contain lamb, pork and chicken, peas and cured meats; perfect for vegetarians instead cocarrois made of the same paste of the panades but stuffed with chard and raisins; instead robiols are filled cakes in the shape of half moon and crespells in the shape of stars and hearts are filled with apricot and ricotta jam.

Four islands, four worlds – For those staying in Majorca, you can book tours of historic palaces and fincas, finely furnished manor houses rich in history dating back to the thirteenth / fifteenth century. Among the most famous and representative La Granja and Els Calderers. In Menorca do not miss the tour of prehistoric megalithic monuments, well-preserved stone structures dating back to the period between 2000 and 1000 BC. which at the time served as burial places or defensive towers. Those who choose Ibiza can experience the island from a naturalistic point of view, visiting two national parks of particular interest for their ecological value: the Park of Ses Salines, the Es Vedrà reserve, Es Vedranell and the islets of the west. In Formentera, a complete tour of the island is possible with a 15 km journey along the north coast from Es Caló de Sant Agustí and ending with el Faro. Walking we discover the camí de Sa Pujada, with numerous caves of the megalithic period, descending towards the pier of Sa Cala and passing through some streams with incredible views.

The Crist de la sang in Palma de Mallorca – Returning to Easter, the Holy Week celebrations take place in the various localities of the islands and are all characterized by the great devotion and the heartfelt participation of the faithful. Among the most important celebrations, the first of great impact is that of Holy Thursday in the city of Palma de Mallorca with the “Sant Crist de la sang”: a spectacular procession with more than twenty thousand hooded confreres, belonging to the thirty official confraternities, carrying the Christ through the streets of the historic center to the rhythm of the drums.

The Via Crucis of Pollenca – Good Friday is very popular in the town of Pollenca, (Majorca) where the “Davallament” takes place one of the most intense celebrations of the archipelago for the intense and realistic representation of the last moments of Christ. A long procession ascends to the church at the top of the hill, known as Calvary, staging an intense and painful Way of the Cross; at the top of the hill there is the crucifixion and then the deposition of Christ. At this point begins the ‘Davallament’: a procession on the 365 steps lit by torches, to the pressing sound of the drums, in a solemn atmosphere and underlined by the glorious song of a “Miserere”, where the Christ is carried in procession by some representatives of the confraternities through the city.
