A slice of normal: Formentera

Getting away from the craziness in Playa d'en Bossa isn't always easy but we did it. Miz Brazil, La Lopez and I took one of the morning ferries to the island of Formentera while Sister took some alone time.
After landing in La Savina where the port is, we took a bus to Es Pujols which is even by the Formenterans' standards the most beautiful beach on their island. On the way we saw the many salt marshes used to make sea salt. Its a quiet laid back little island, with small towns scattered everywhere. We saw couples and families out enjoying the day. Even though it was a bit overcast it was still very warm outside. We walked through the town of Es Pujols to get to the beach.
The water was..... incredible. Beautiful clear water in all colors of blue and green had a gentle tide. We picked a spot right next to it and Miz Brazil and I hightailed it right in. It was so refreshing! It has some rocky parts but the sand is really soft and it looks very Caribbean. There is a little beach shack right behind a sand dune that sells drinks and has a bathroom. We ordered some sangria and drank it while laying in the sun. The water was so clear you can see the bottom even in 15 feet of it! We even napped in the sun and the easy relaxed nature of the area really helped rejuvenate me.
Later on that evening La Lopez and I went walking in Playa d'en Bossa to see all the famous clubs, even though we didn't go in. We decided to make our own bar hop down the street, which was really fun. We met lots of nice people from Belgium, Germany and Hungary who were just there to hear the music like us. We tried Dunes, where some awesome lounge style house music was playing, and then Murphy's where the music was a little more dancey and remixed with hip-hop.
Tomorrow is our last day in Ibiza, and we plan on just lounging at the beach and taking it easy. We leave for Barcelona on Tuesday morning. Yay!
