Ibiza & Formentera Road Trip

Long overdue… but here’s a recap on my trip to Ibiza and Formentera. Lauren and I rented a car and drove everywhere, I absolutely fell in love with how beautiful these islands were.

Friday

Stop 1: Las Salinas

Meet Lauren – A fellow AuPair friend from Texas.

Stop 2: The Mystical Island – Es Vedra

Stop 3: Cala d’Hort

One of my favorite stops, the most peaceful, beautiful location with a view of Es Vedra.

Stop 4: Cala Tarida

Stop 5: Cala Comte

 Stop 6: Cala Bossa

The contrast between the bright turquoise and sapphire blue waters was incredible – not to mention the waves pulling in from all different directions. An amazing spot to stop!

Stop 7: Sant Antoni

Stop 8: Atlantis Sunset

Saturday

Day 2 of our road trip – check out the beautiful places we discovered below!

Stop 1: Platja des Cavallet

Stop 2: Historic Ibiza Old Town – Dalt Villa – Ibiza Castle – Ibiza Port

Another one of my favorites – the most charming little town, Dalt Villa and the Ibiza Castle have the most gorgeous views of the sea and the city.

Stop 3: Santa Gertrudis de Fruitera

Stop 4: Hacienda Na Ximena

Stop 5: Cala Benirras

Stop 6: Cala D’en Serra

Sunday

Stop 1: Sant Francesc Xavier

Stop 2: Cap de Barbaria

We followed a narrow little road, unsure where it would take us, in hopes of finding this lighthouse. It led us right up to it and was one of the coolest things I have ever seen.

Stop 3: Platja de Migjorn

Stop 4: Cala des Mort

Stop 5: Pilar de la Mola / Faro de la Mola

Another really cool lighthouse overlooking the sea – Amazing!

Stop 6: Calo de Sant Agusti

Stop 7: Es Pujols

Stop 8: Playa Sa Roqueta

Stop 9: Playa de Ses Illetes

Monday

Unfortunately, we are up before the sun to head to the airport and back to Barcelona today. Saying that out loud sounds awful – Barcelona is amazing and I love it – but this was truly a magical weekend, perhaps even my favorite so far.

Ibiza and Formentera captured my heart with their beauty, and I know this is a place I will come back to one day, and you should too! The best way to see the islands is by car, but definitely give yourself more than just a weekend to truly enjoy and take in each stop along the way. My favorite thing about road trips is the hidden spots you discover along the way. The journey is always just as great, if not better, than the destination!

Besos,
