Ibiza - Formentera

Puerto de Ibiza
Puerto de Ibiza
When you decide to do this route, you decide to travel to the past and travel the miles that others have previously made between the Pitiusas or Illes Pitiuses, (from the Greek pitys: abundant reserve of pines), as they were called, Ibiza and Formentera together with other small islets such as Espalmador or Espardel. Key Point in the Mediterranean crossings for centuries, from the port of Ibiza place from where we left we can contemplate, majestically, the old walled city, UNESCO World Heritage. A beautiful fortress built to protect the city from the invasion of the Turks. We set our sights on the beautiful Dalt Vila, with the heart auguring a day full of surprises for the senses, with a huge smile on our faces. We set sail for Espalmador leaving Eivissa behind, but only until sunset, at which time we will return to see it Illuminated, lit, bright. On the way we see the silhouette of the magical Es Vedr, who whispers through the wind that we are going to see her, but that will be another day, another excursion, another magical moment.

In front of the mouth of the Port of Ibiza, we passed over the Don Pedro, the longest diving wreck in Europe of 141 meters in length, which rests in the depths of the sea since the early morning of July 11, 2007. We crossed the Strait of the Freus, a place that contains many stories of missing fishermen and shipwrecks. We passed near the Penjats or Los Ahorcados Lighthouse, 27m high, a place that in the 19th century was the worst destination for a lighthouse keeper, mainly due to its isolation and the network of islets of the Strait of Freus.


Sa Torreta
Sa Torreta
When arriving at Sa Torreta, the calm invades our boat and all those who go there. A small haven of peace that we can only access in silence, located within the Ses Salines Natural Park of Ibiza and Formentera. A stop to take a breath of fresh air and continue our adventure.

Entre dos Aguas
Entre dos Aguas
We see Entre dos Aguas, the line of fine sand and turquoise water that separates Espalmador de Formentera. The first, a private island that in the year 1936 Bernardo Cinnamond bought for 42,400 pesetas, today owned by his family; the second, a paradise that continues to give us beautiful images, even after the visit of millions of people each season. If we have the opportunity, we will walk through Entre dos Aguas at low tide to experience the feeling of freedom of the walker and, as Zen monks say, to purify our soul.

Playa de Illetas
Playa de Illetas
Our next stop will be at Illetas Beach, an extensive beach with turquoise waters and fine sand that has been cataloged as the best in Spain and the seventh best in the world. I am moved by the love story of the owners of one of the most popular restaurants in the place. The love story of Juan, a fisherman from Formentera, and Andrea, a woman from Soria who after being the caretakers of the island of Espalmador for some years, decided to open a small beach bar on this beach, which bears their names, take care of some boats that were approaching Illetas. With the passage of time, this small establishment has become a meeting point for celebrities and millionaires, as well as an ideal place to enjoy authentic Mediterranean food, fresh and with a taste of the sea.

Cala Saona
Cala Saona
We arrive at Cala Saona, one of those beaches where its waters remain etched in the retina forever. The turquoise of its waters in this small paradise contrasts with the red of the earth that surrounds it. The red land of Formentera. The shallow depth of this beach next to a fine white sand, gives us the waves that form the waves in the background.
With a soft smile on our face, we return to Puerto with the certainty that we want to enjoy more, to know more about Las Pitiusas from the sea.
