Spain, Ibiza – The Capital of Eivissa and a Trip to Formentera Island

Published: 14.7.2018
Ibiza is an island in the Balearic archipelago with an area of 571 km². It is the eighth largest island of Spain and together with Formentera Island is the main part of Illes Pitiüses (Pine Islands). Ibiza is an island full of fun, never-ending parties and lively life on both beaches and towns.

Traveling around the Ibiza is easy. They have a pretty good bus service, but it is best to rent a car and ride around the island. Even though travelling by other means there is not bad too.

The capital city of Eivissa could be divided into two parts - the old and the new city. The old town forms a harbor with the adjacent neighborhoods of Sa Penya and La Marina and is surrounded by the walls of the Dalt Vila. To the west of this historical part lies a modern part of the city, which has been expanding. Eivissa is a beautiful, vibrant city. Music along the streets, everywhere there are cafes, restaurants, small shops and just everything what belongs to such a city.

We heard about Formentera island that it was really wonderful, so we decided to visit it. It lies 8 km south of Ibiza and spreads on the area of over 82 km². The only possible way to get there is on a ship. So we rather bought tickets a day in advance. We were afraid of waves of tourists. The price for the ferry is from 20 Euros or more, depending on the company you choose. In the morning we went to the harbor, embarked and headed for Formentera.

The voyage takes about 30 minutes. When we landed, our journey led to the most famous place, in the north of the island, where the Ses Salines National Park is located. It is a 5 km long stretch of sand dunes and rock formations, lined with beautiful beaches with long shallows. Fine white sand and cyan water reminiscent of the Caribbean Sea and will take your breath away. There is a trail that you can ride through on a bike. You can rent it right in the harbor for 6 euros per day, but you can of course go on foot. It takes less than 30 minutes to get to the bike and it's less than an

Yachts are parked all over the coast and create a beautiful backdrop. There is also the most popular beach - Platja de Ses Illetes. From the beach there is a nice view of Espalmador, an island about 150 meters away. Our goal was clear. We reached the end of the spur and set off into the sea. We went to see if we could go to this little island. We had a crank. With things over our head, we have beautifully passed. We laid things on the beach and we were just enjoying the beautiful weather and the warm sea.

The whole trail is well marked. The names of the beaches are on the signs, so one knows where they are. And whoever does not like beaches can go on a tour around the island.

Formentera is total oposite of Ibiza. Which means there is neither busy night life nor vibrant discos. However, the sea around you is amazing.
