Hard to leave behind…

After experiencing a little island fever, two of us from Eden Events decided to swap Ibiza for Formentera; a well-deserved break and change of scenery was truly needed. So, from one paradise to another we embarked on our weekend adventure…

Formentera is the smallest of the Balearic Islands; it lies just south of Ibiza and is known for its very relaxed vibe. You can arrive in as little as 40 minutes by ferry from Ibiza, so we took the car and Mr Bumble our handsome furry team member and arrived in the port just a little later.

We headed south of the famous Playa de Ses Illetes, just outside of the village San Francisco in the heart of the campo, to the cutest casita.  Beautiful flowers, a small garden, and a choir of birds greeted us at our little weekend home.

We quickly unpacked and headed to Migjorn – a strikingly beautiful beach – and unbelievably it was empty.  People normally go to Formentera simply to relax, spend time lazing on incredible beaches and bathe in the sparkling crystalline waters.  It’s no surprise that Formentera’s idyllic beaches are regularly voted Europe’s best, also ranking in the top ten worldwide.  For (almost) May it is ordinarily a little quiet, but today we are completely alone, in paradise and peace.

As much as Formentera is a top holiday destination, it is also extremely popular for daytime excursions from Ibiza. It’s easy to get around on a rented scooter, electric bike or push bike to explore these beautiful beaches and charming villages.  Hiring a private boat is also an extremely popular day out, and Eden Events concierge team can rent you a perfect motor yacht for the day and show you the wonderful Formentaera boatlife..

We spent the next few days chilling on beaches, and driving out to the famous lighthouses (Far de la Mola and Barbaria).  We stopped to eat delicious Mediterranean food in one of the many excellent restaurants (Restaurant Can Rafalet, which is a laid-back option, with outdoor dining with incredible views). Sundowners followed at the Lucky Bar, where your toes are in the sand as you sip on the best Mojitos. We made new friends in Sa Sequi, one of Formentera’s coolest hangout’s, which is close to the port and a great place for a goodbye drink…  although it’s a place you will find hard to leave behind.

We may – for now – have to leave this small island which dedicates itself to holidaymakers seeking peace, beauty and tranquillity, but we will certainly be back to show our clients a real paradise where time seems to stand still.

As the island slowly awakens from the winter and COVID-19 lockdown slumber, all eyes turn to the almond trees, a spectacular blanket of white blossom covering the island. There are so many beautiful walks in Ibiza, but at this time of year most head for Santa Agnès.

In a wide valley that surrounds the small town of Santa Agnès de Corona, grow hundreds of almond trees in blossom, with white flowers that inebriate the air with their sweet scent between late January and February. If you are on the island you cannot miss the chance to go and appreciate one of the best “shows” Ibiza’s nature has to offer.

We recently had a beautiful walk through these fields, on a great windy – yet sunny – day, enjoying the kaleidoscopic contrasts of Ibiza’s countryside: green lawns, colourful flowers, and cobalt skies.  On a typical walk here, you head to Las Puertas del Cielo, one of Ibiza’s best lookout points.  Standing on the edge of the land, gazing out to sea, you feel a real sense of calm yet fuelling energy for your mind, body, and soul.  Make sure you take a moment to breathe in all that magic!

In other months, although the almond trees may not be in blossom, Santa Agnès’ countryside remains one of the most authentic places to visit.  So, do not miss it if you come to the island – and if you did fancy staying here, our favourite family-run hotel Es Cucons is a must!  An original farmhouse, located in the heart of the picturesque valley, Es Cucons was built in 1652 and reformed by the current owners in 1997. They have been welcoming guests from all over the globe since the year 2000.

Art and design play an important role in this unique Ibiza hotel, alongside lovingly prepared Mediterranean cuisine and an array of health and beauty therapies. Holidays here are spent connecting with nature, and relaxing in a unique setting with like-minded friends, families, couples, and creatives.

The restaurant, spa and boutique are ideal spots to nourish your body and nurture your mind, while your bedroom or suite is the perfect place to retreat to blissful silence.  Whatever you are seeking from your Ibiza holiday, we are sure you will find it at Es Cucons.

It is only mid-February but a very generous 17 degrees most days.  At weekends, if the Ibiza locals are not walking, they typically gather for picnics. On a stunning coastline full of deserted beaches, there are plenty of delightful spots to choose from. This is where you can relax and really start to feel the pre-season magic.  It is warm and peaceful, and if you are one of Ibiza’s wellness sea-warriors it is just about bearable to jump in!

We set up a picnic recently at Cala Conta and soaked up the sun and scenery while we relaxed and ate our delicious spread.
