A couple of years ago my sister was left speechless when her boyfriend proposed to her on a beach during a trip to Jamaica. The idea of a destination wedding –a wedding held away from your city- really appealed to her, like it did to me when I got married in Rivera Maya some years ago. I’m sure most guests would not have minded at all if she had decided to hold it in Jamaica, but in the end she decided to get married on the Mediterranean island of Formentera. So off we were, to Formentera last week.
Although during the Spanish Civil War and until 1923, this Balearic island had a water airport, the only way to get there today is by ferry, from the port of neighbouring Ibiza. Luckily, there is one approximately every half an hour, and because the two islands are just 11 kilometers apart, the trip is short.
Once in Formentera, even though the island is small, I recommend skipping the bus (too few stops and unreliable schedules) and taxis (too expensive). A great alternative is renting a scooter or a Vespa, or you can also rent a car, if you prefer.
This was the first time we were in Formentera and we chose to stay in a beautiful four-room rural stone house which has been converted to a bed and breakfast. Relaxing and tastefully decorated, the place has been run for the past ten years by an Italian couple. The best part, being able to enjoy a quiet breakfast outdoors. A wonderful way to start the day.
