Pretty ashamed to admit to it but up to 7 years ago, I wasn’t quite sure were exactly, that fantastic island, was.
Thanks to the tabloids, my Italian friends and a trip to Ibiza, I discovered a place…..or even better, THE place, bohemian-chic Formentera, permanently now listed on my little black book.
Located in the southern part of the Balearic Islands, it is where you should head to when you are tired of the Porto Cervo euro-trash boat nights, or the Mykonian Chora bar-hopping or the Ibiza boozing or …you have reached that certain point in your life when you don’t care to be seen and you can value the beauty of simplicity and beautiful nature.
1) For its dreamy beaches & crystal clear waters.
2) Great Food
3) Laid back, all day beach clubs
4) young, fresh crowd
(… 1, 3 are very serious reasons to go coming from a Greek’s mouth. If you have watched the film “My big fat Greek wedding” you should know that the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean are Greek, there are no beaches better than ours and of course we have invented everything!…NOT)
Where to stay:
Es Ram Eco friendly Resort, La Mola.
A personal favorite-the place to stay if you are after tranquility and exclusivity, tucked away in the heart of wild nature, where sapphire blue meets vivid green, down at the North-Eastern part of the island.
There is a choice of 8 rooms or more quiet independent villas called Viviendas.
You can easily spend 3 days inside the resort without moving.
Where to spend the day:
10.7, Platja Migjorn.
My fave beach club located on the great long beach of Migjorn.
Ideal to spend the whole day, gazing at the endless blue horizon, sunbathing, drinking
Great for sea food and chill out:
Chez Gerdi beach club.
Where we Dine & Wine:
The destination is one and it is called Marlaca
Great cocktails, a Ferran Andria protégé chef in charge of the very creative and very well presented Mediterranean menu, open all day, superb for romantic dinning al fresco.
Head North: For the most impressive sandy beaches
Do not miss a single sun set
