You might wonder what I think of deciding at the end to spend our beach vacation in Ibiza and Formentera instead of Santorini as originally planned. What do I think? We couldn’t have made a better decision! I don’t regret it in the least. The 6 days we spent in Ibiza and one of them in Formentera was exactly what you need if you are thinking about making a completely relaxing vacation where you can finally switch off, enjoy paradisiac beaches and landscapes, beautiful medieval architecture, and amazing food. During the next couple of days I will be posting an Ibiza travel guide to know where it’s best to stay, where to eat, and which places to visit.
If I tell you I fell in love with both islands, that might be an understatement, since this was probably one my favorite vacations of all. And yes, I’ve had ones that give Ibiza/Formentera a run for its money, namely many in the Caribbean. However, Formentera is basically Spain’s own Caribbean, since its beaches have (almost) nothing to envy American ones, except that besides the paradisiac landscapes it also has the history, medieval architecture, and European flair. Oh, and let’s not forget the food (‘only’ haha).
At the end I ended packing more than what I had planned, mainly because hot weather clothing is super light and so are the sandals. Therefore, I had lots of free space left in our suitcase.
Scroll down to see my impressions of the islands and to see what I wore.
