Kathryn and I jumped onto our four-wheeled friend Mehari and roamed the island.
By the way, meharis are perfect for Formentera. The wind, the four x four, the robustness.
We visited the Pilar de la Mola lighthouse.
As a matter of fact we did more than visit the lighthouse, we sunbathed on a deserted field. A coach caught up with us and we felt kind of embarrassed. But we toughened up.
There is a very cute café next to the lighthouse with breathtaking views on the cliffs.
We also visited the La Mola hippie market (Wednesdays and Sundays). To be absolutely honest, we didn’t think much of it. Kathryn bought an ugly bracelet and I bought a black volanic arrow-necklace.
But this little buddy was absolutely adorable.
The Cap de Barbaria lighthouse is almost more beautiful than the one at La Mola. It’s hard to describe the feeling we got when we were approaching the tower… we were overwhelmed with the beauty of it all.
Sitting on the verge of the cliff gave us such a high….
The village of Sant Francesc is gorgeous. Especially the Church and the lovely Ca na Pepa restaurant behind it.
It was the first time I saw such big cactus flowers.
La Savina port also has some charms. Bouganville restaurant was still closed but if you go during the high-season, don’t miss out! Aqua is supposed to have good fish and great “meloncelo”.
We really liked the salt mines.
On our way back to Es Pujols, we stopped at El Caminito for some Argentinean food. Delicious.
Especially the grilled Padron peppers and the pineapple dessert.
I hope I’ve given you some inspiration to go to the small Pitiusa island. I know I can’t wait to go back in a couple of months…
