Travel Tips for Isla de Formentera
RUB MUD !!
In the northen part of this island "S'ESPALMADOR" , there is a interesting place to visit. It is MUD HOT SPRING !!
Everyone scoop the mud from huge hot swamp and rub that to own body. It's likely to be good for our skin...
Remember, the smell is so hard ! Even after washing in the beach, you will smell for a whole day !!(^ ^)
Path from Cala es Ram to Cala es Morts
This is not a real path, we follow the seashore line going up, going down playing with the orography.. We found such a real good places and nook,, look at the pictures.. im pretty sure you'd love to go there !!
On the island, you'll hear the beach at Illetas compared to the Caribbean, and while it is undoubtedly a very beautiful beach with white sand and clear water, it is also quite crowded, and the water too shallow for swimming. That said, you can easily walk/swim out to the nearby island of Espalmador which would have been great if only my parents had allowed it! A far better, wilder and quieter beach is to be found on the other side of this peninsula, al Llevant (see "off the beaten path" below)
Ses Salines is a nature reserve in northern Formentera and includes some salt lagoons you'll drive past to reach Ses Illetas and the norther part of the island. They are quite smelly, but can also be a source of inspiration for your pictures at sunset time!
Formentera - As blue as cobalt
When my memories go back to the days in Formentera, the first idea that comes to my mind is BLUE.
Blue as the wonderful sea: if you look at Formentera from Google Earth, you'll see it bordered with a cobald-blue sea, and when you are finally swimming in this amazing blue, you'll think that you are living the moment that you'll remember in winter time, while staring at the rain outside your office window!
Blue as the sky: being an island, Formentera is quite windy, and very often the sky has no clouds.
One simple word can describe Formentera: paradise!
There is not much to do on the island, which makes it the perfect place to relax, maybe enjoying an aperitif while dancing on the beach at sunset after a day spent sunbathing.
Our first trip to Formentera was in August... Do not ever do that! The island becomes an Italian colony!
I'm Italian, and I should be more understanding, but I have to admit that the crowd is almost unbearable...
Our second visit to the island was in mid-July, and I must admit that the atmosphere is much more relaxed and less Italian!!
