Day Twenty Two Island Hopping around the Balearics - Benirras to Eivissa, Ibiza #LP
I’ve survived sleeping in the pagoda on my own, not the best of nights sleep though I spent most of the night waking at the slightest of noise. In reality I was very safe staying in the pagoda in the sleepy town of Benirras, sometimes my imagination just gets carried away too much. So, it is good bye to Ibiza Yoga and hello again to Ibiza Town (Eivissa). I’ve been investigating the old town today, which has been a pleasant surprise. The island’s city (:-)) is contained within historical fortress walls (Ramparts), see the photos. It is a bit of a steep trek to the top with many steps, good job I had my fitflops on, well may be not, it would have been more comfortable if I’d worn my trainers. The old town has had a recent makeover since finding a major archeological site within the old town walls, apparently it is much cleaner and safer than it used to be. I can’t really comment on that, as this was my first visit. I was lucky enough to see the time trials for the Grand Prix Power Boating from the viewpoint in the Old Town today. I think the yellow boat may win, well it looked the fastest to me. The circuit was from Ibiza Town to Playa D’en Bossa, those boats were going at a high speed of knots, it looked more dangerous than Formula 1 racing.
The only thing that spoils Ibiza Town is the constant flights coming into land, it’s located right under the flight path. So, it can be noisy at times, which interrupts your relaxation on the beach or a chilled lunch. I would recommend coming here for a long weekend even if you’re not into clubbing, it has plenty to see and do for a couple of days.
Finally I took the water bus to Talamanca for a quick trip to the beach before heading to the airport. So, that’s my trip completed, the time has flown by so quickly! The highlights of this trip were that I was able to share it with different friends and make some new friends along the way. Here’s to old and new friendships! :-)
Peace and love to one and all!
