Holidays Formentera, Balearic Islands
May 26, 2018
Formentera, which is suspended on a cliff at 120 meters, is one of the islands
that make up the communities of the Balearic
Islands, along with Majorca, Ibiza and Menorca. If you know of the existence
of Jules Verne (author of "Journey to the Center of the Earth")
or Bob Dylan, this was the island that caught them.
Its main activity is tourism, exploiting its paradisiacal
beaches, being an oasis of tranquility where the days become slow and nature
sneaks in every corner, due to its wide variety of fauna and flora. Thus,
Fomentera becomes in a certain way in the antithesis of Ibiza which is known
for its Crazy night life.
Another important aspect is the seabed, which houses the most emblematic
Posidonia extensions of the Mediterranean, so going diving would be an excellent
idea for our travellers.
And not to mention the lighthouse of Fomentera, which contains
a lot of history and offers a beautiful view of the whole island. Moreover,
its ruins, its caves and its sunsets next to the wonderful landscape, oblige
the tourist to travel every corner to enjoy it.
In this place you can find markets, narrow streets, its rural
and hospitable hotels,
shops, restaurants, and cafes, with a spectacular view to the super blue beaches
considered the most beautiful and the best in Europe and around the world.
As who says, Fomentera is a spiritual space, where you come
to rebuild lives and renew energies. It is quite an inspiration, but this
without leaving aside that they still celebrate many festivities, festivals
and concerts held in the town square.
But, unfortunately, it's hard to get to it, one of the few ways to get to
the island is by boat from Ibiza. And once you're in it, the best way to ride
it is by bike or motorbike.
Its gastronomy is very homely but the way to attract customers to their small
restaurants are very ingenious. For example, the Pirate bus, which, literal,
is a ramshackle bus transformed into a bar, curiously created by pirates.
However, it has vineyards with traditional cultivated varieties. Its wines
and beverages reflect the spirit of the island, with colorful and light-filled
Formentera highlights the rural with a touch of magic, in the middle of nowhere,
where the singing of the birds is what wakes you up in the morning. So what
do you expect to go?
