Ibiza – Fuera de temporada #español

 Mucha gente tiene el concepto equivocado de la isla de Ibiza; prensa y televisión se empeñan en mostrar la cara más pervertida provocando así una gran oleada de opiniones erróneas sobre uno de los lugares más paradisíacos del mar Mediterráneo. Reality shows como “Ibiza Weekenders” o “Geordie Shore” ,entre otros, son auténticos destructores de la auténtica esencia de Ibiza, promoviendo un turismo dañino (eso sí, muy rentable) para la isla. Es fácil encontrar opiniones similares sobre la isla; Ibiza es, para muchos, simplemente fiesta, drogas, alcohol y sexo. Por supuesto, en Ibiza hay fiesta, porque hay música y muy buena, por cierto; no nos olvidemos que los mejores productores de música electrónica del mundo, así como artistas reconocidos se encargan de hacer de Ibiza la capital mundial de la música durante los meses de verano, pero lamentablemente, de ello no se hacen eco ni la prensa ni tampoco la televisión, una lástima. Sólo se muestra la cara más morbosa, conflictiva y delictiva de la fiesta, olvidándose de todos aquellos músicos y artistas que forman parte de la cultura musical de la isla y se acercan cada temporada en busca de una oportunidad, y lo más importante, el ser escuchados. ¿Has salido de fiesta?, me preguntan cada vez que visito Ibiza; ¡Pues no! ¡No salí! No siempre necesito salir de fiesta en Ibiza, ¡Gracias!

Fuera de temporada, y lejos de la fiesta, existe otra Ibiza; quizás menos conocida. Pero claro, esta cara no interesa mostrarla, sobretodo a los medios de comunicación. No hay “postureo”, ni tampoco famosos; los clubs más importantes de la isla están cerrados y la existencia del “guiri europeo” borracho es mínima. La perversión y la lujuria que tanto gusta proyectar no existe; las drogas, tampoco. Parece que no hay nada interesante que contar sobre Ibiza fuera de temporada, pero están equivocados, sí que lo hay. Es una Ibiza mágica, dónde la naturaleza nos enseña una de sus mejores creaciones. Se respira pureza en cada rincón y el  “flow” que fluye en la isla marca el ritmo del día (y no los clubs). Déjate despertar cada mañana con el canto dulce de los pájaros  y disfruta de una auténtica sesión de spa natural en cualquiera de las calas de Ibiza, dónde los tonos turquesas son capaces de seducir tu retina. Respira, hondo, y siente el olor a pino mientras visitas lugares recónditos, esos dónde la energía forma parte de la atmósfera. Deja que texturas, sabores y olores inunden tus sentidos mientras degustas deliciosos platos locales. Permítete embelesarte con puestas de sol únicas y abre tus brazos para sentir mejor la auténtica esencia de Ibiza.

IBIZA

Fuera de Temporada

La gran variedad de colores, aromas, sabores, esencias, texturas y sensaciones que fluyen en la isla de Ibiza durante los meses primaverales y otoñales (fuera de temporada), es infinita. Todo es más bello en Ibiza cuando no es verano.

El aroma a pino se hace presente en cada rincón de la isla, gracias a las lluvias características de estas épocas del año. El campo, verde, invita a perderse entre los pinos, almendros, olivos, viñedos y algarrobos y descubrir así la parte más rural de la isla, y no menos interesante, que ya está empezando a posicionarse seriamente como una alternativa más de turismo en Ibiza. A esta nueva tendencia se le llama Agroturismo, ofrece la oportunidad de explorar un lado menos conocido de la cultura ibicenca, dónde el buen servicio, la gastronomía y la naturaleza juegan un papel fundamental para su éxito. Estos complejos rurales suelen ser antiguas “casas payesas” (casa de campo ibicenca) reformadas, situadas en entornos muy discretos, rodeados de naturaleza y con un servicio excelente y muy profesional. La estancia durante la temporada de verano en estos complejos rurales pueden llegar a ser muy cotizada, llegándose a pagar 500€ por habitación/noche. Fuera de temporada, puedes encontrar “chollazos” dónde el precio podría bajar hasta 90€/ noche. ¿Vale la pena venir fuera de temporada? ¡Sí! El enclave es precioso, el servicio es excepcional, la comida muy sabrosa y la experiencia única; y recuerda, pagando mucho menos de lo que pagarías en temporada alta.

La vida es más fácil cuándo estás rodeado de belleza

El excesivo turismo durante la temporada estival en Ibiza convierte las calas de la isla en auténticos parques acuáticos. Cientos de personas “pelean” cada mañana para hacerse un hueco en la arena, que junto a los yates (sí, esos yates de mega ricos que se gastan 80.000€ en una botella de champán en el Lío o Pacha), ensucian las aguas cristalinas de cada una de las calas de la isla. Fuera de temporada, las calas de Ibiza muestra una pureza excepcional; la transparencia y claridad de las aguas así como la amplia gama de turquesas proyectan una imagen totalmente paradisíaca. Sólo tendrás ganas de sumergirte entre ellas, desafiando así las aún aguas gélidas. Todo es tranquilidad alrededor, sabes que será fácil aparcar y sobretodo, no tendrás que preocuparte en buscar un hueco en la arena. Con el simple gesto de ponerte unas gafas de bucear, tendrás suficiente para admirar la riqueza de la flora y fauna marina de Ibiza, dónde peces, algas y formaciones rocosas seducirán tus sentidos.

Cierto es que la buena gastronomía abunda en la isla tanto en temporada como fuera de ella. Los precios incluso no varían. La calidad de la materia prima en la cocina ibicenca hace que el comer sea una experiencia muy sabrosa para tu paladar.  El marisco y los platos de pescado, son, junto con los arroces, los platos más degustados por los visitantes de la isla; pero Ibiza también se caracteriza por ser un destino “veggie-friendly”; la comida orgánica juega un papel muy importante en la gastronomía de la isla y ya son muchos los restaurantes que ofrecen alternativas más saludables, con platos vegetarianos y veganos, aclamando así a un turismo que parece aún está por explotar. Durante la temporada, puede llegar a ser frustrante el hecho de no encontrar un sitio en algunos de esos restaurantes dónde sabes que vas a comer bien, pero fuera de ella, no es así.  Parece que la gastronomía de Ibiza fuera de temporada llega a ser incluso más exquisita, parece que todo está cocinado sin tiempos, no hay prisa en servir, no hay prisa en comer. No sientes la presión de tener que abandonar la mesa justo después de tomarte la copa de hierbas ibicencas que te ofrecen como detalle una vez pagas la cuenta. El “flow” de la isla, como ya he dicho, es quien marca el ritmo.

Lugares recónditos abundan en la isla blanca, perfectos de visitar en esos días dónde el sol no brilla en las aguas del Mar Mediterráneo. Espectaculares senderos a través de enormes acantilados conducen a solitarias calas de difícil acceso, de aguas cristalinas y paisajes de vértigo. Descubre discotecas abandonadas de los años 70 entre frondosos bosques de pino mediterráneo, dónde la naturaleza se ha encargado de hacer de ellas un elemento más del entorno. Pasea a lo largo de la costa visitando las 7 torres vigías que protegían la isla de Ibiza de piratas y tropas militares,  piérdete entre los cientos de caminos de tierra que encontrarás en el interior de la isla o déjate embelesar con el poder magnético de la Isla de Es Vedra, conocida también como “La Roca”. Visita Atlantis, un lugar mágico gracias a sus formaciones rocosas formadas por la mano del hombre y lugar de culto de los hippies cuando se asentaron en la isla en los años 60. Muchos de estos lugares suelen estar visitados durante la temporada; al final todo se sabe, y la gente, atraída por la curiosidad, se desplaza hasta ellos. Sin embargo, fuera de temporada, sueles encontrarte sólo en estos lugares, pudiendo así conectar mejor con la naturaleza y sentir mejor la energía y la magia de la isla de Ibiza.

No necesitas tener los “clubs” más importantes de la isla abiertos para poder escuchar buena música. Artistas anónimos provenientes de todo el mundo se encargarán de deleitarte con la mejor música mientras disfrutas de la brisa mediterránea en alguna de las “beach terraces” que encontrarás a lo largo de la costa o como el caso de Pablo Dass, productor musical del sello discográfico The Look y Dj, que se encargará de amenizar las tardes en la piscina del Ebano Select Apartments & Spa.

Lo único que de verdad tiene una magia especial en Ibiza, tanto en temporada como fuera de ella, son las preciosas puestas de sol. Puedes disfrutarlas sólo, compañía o con cientos de personas; con música, o sin ella. Desde la mística puesta de sol en el mirador de Es Vedra, junto a cientos de personas en Cafe de Mambo o bailando al ritmo de los tambores en Cala Benirrás los domingos. Todas tienen algo especial y algo que decirte sobre la magia de la isla.

Quiero pensar que un día, tanto la televisión como la prensa, dejarán de proyectar esa imagen tan equívoca de Ibiza y pararán de destruir la esencia de uno de los lugares más mágicos del planeta, dónde la energía y el misticismo atrapan a aquel que no se deja llevar por la perversión.

3 hidden places in Ibiza with “On Ibiza Clouds”

Ibiza is one of those places which I don´t mind to go often. It has the ability to supernaturally force me to visit it at least twice a year; maybe its magic atmosphere, its music, its people or its beauty…all what involve this island attract me so hard. The past month on July I had the chance of discovering new hidden and unknown places thanks my blogger friend Natalia; her blog On Ibiza Clouds is one of the most popular of Ibiza which feature interesting fashion articles as well as fantastic videos of the best spots in the white island. If you want to know more about On Ibiza Clouds and Ibiza please feel free to check her blog. You will also find her article about my visit by clicking next link http://www.onibizaclouds.com/time-and-space-ibiza-open-air-monumental-work/

Natalia and I spent the morning visiting 3 different and hidden places in Ibiza, she was really good as a tour guide and despiste the awful heat I was able to enjoy the tour as well as all related comments that she made during our time together. Join us and discover those 3 hidden Ibiza´s spots which you don´t usually find at any guidebook.

1.- Sant Agusti

Sant Agusti

Ibiza´s architectural style – all in white

This small and charming village is situated on the top of a hill between Sant Antoni Bay and Sant Josep. The views over the countryside are fantastic which is fully filled of almond trees, despite the coast is a bit far, you can also enjoy views over the sea. Ibiza is known as “The White Island” due to the colour of the houses and Sant Agusti is probably one of the best examples of this local architecture. When you visit this village it seems like the time has not passed by, tough there is still place for local restaurants and B&Bs which make Sant Agusti more alive within its rural atmosphere.

2.- “Time & Space” Sculpture

This open air sculpture which has a similar appearance to Stonehenge is situated in the southwest coast of Ibiza. Its named is “Time and Space” and was designed by the famous Australian artist Andrew Rogers and financially funded by the Canadian millionaire Guy Laliberte (owner and founder or the Cirque du Soleil which has his enormous villa in Ibiza just in front of the sculpture). Formed by 13 pillars of basalt in a 24 meters of diameter this sculpture is inspired in the island of Es Vedra,  it represents the movement of the planets around the sun and its lined up with the winter solstice sunset. if you want to know more about it, have a look to my Ibiza blogger friend’s article by clicking in the following link http://www.onibizaclouds.com/time-and-space-ibiza-open-air-monumental-work/

3.- Cala Llentia

Cala Llentia is known to a few locals as a place to escape the madness that takes over the island during the high season. If you are looking for a place to lay down and enjoy the tranquillity, this is absolutely one of the best spots for that, although tricky access will put you on in a risky and funny adventure. The turquoise and clear water (which you can see from the top of the cliff) invites you to take the risk of climbing down the cliff. Give a try and visit this hidden beach, but you need to find the way to get there; for that reason I recommend you to contact Natalia; she will give you further information about it, click the following link and contact her On Ibiza Clouds

5 of 15 reasons why you should visit Castellon #part1

castellon turismo playa del serradal

Castellón is probably one of those hundred unknown places along the Mediterranean coast which you might also fall in love with it. The reason why this beautiful Spanish province is less known than other is actually due to its slow growing tourism industry against other popular places like Alicante, Valencia, Salou or Barcelona when the “tourist boom” arose in Spain in the 60’s years. This province is situated exactly between those popular places and people usually passed through Castellon, but never stopped. Now those popular places are getting obsolete and Castellón is getting more popular. It seems like the tourism industry is pushing the wheel to different direction, making Castellon a trending topic for both Spanish and foreign travellers. Finally people have realised how much beauty Castellon is and how many things you can do.

Castellón is situated between Barcelona and Valencia. Its coast is named “The Blossom Orange Coast” and you can beach hop all the way along 110km of coast; your perfect summer holiday might come true here as Castellón has all you need. But Castellón is not only beach and sun, in that hundred of mountains, small villages, thousand of activities and charming people are waiting you for your entertainment throughout this stunning and unknown place.

Pack Your Bag is going to give you 15 reasons of why Castellón is the best place for your summer holidays this 2016. Considering the huge amount of reasons as well as the useful information of the article, Pack Your Bag is going to divide it in three different sections to make a better feature article.

Castellón (Spain), why I should spend my summer holiday in Castellón next summer?

1.- The weather

Castellón offers more than 310 sunny days throughout the year (wow 😱). Yes, you have read perfectly. The Orange Blossom Coast is probably one of the sunniest places in Spain. It seems like it has its own micro-climate. The rain (wet) season usually is only a week, whether in spring or autumn; therefore Castellón is a perfect place for your holidays as the sun is guaranteed all year long.

2.- The beaches

Castellón has 78 beaches along its 110km of coast, that means you will find a beach every 1.41km. From rocky, rough & hidden creeks to white, long & sandy beaches Castellón offers to the visitor a wide range of options for your beachy time. The water is clean and clear and 32 beaches are awarded with blue flag (indication of a high environmental and quality standards). More information and pictures about Castellón’s beaches, click here

3.- Castellón de la Plana

This alive and vibrant city is the capital of the Province where tradition and modernity combine perfectly in harmony. Why being lost in Castellón de la Plana can be an amazing experience? Dozen of Mediterranean fragrances hit your face when you gallivant through its streets and thousand of oranges trees dress the city. The pedestrian city centre offers to the visitor the option to interact with the charming local people and shopping at any of the local shops. Perhaps, you shouldn’t miss the colourful central market and try all the tasty local food.  A walk into the old fisher quarter El Grau de Castellón (which is 4 km far from the city) brings to you the pure essence of a traditional Mediterranean village,  furthermore you will find one of the best beaches of Spain, with more than 14 km long, woow!!

4.- Peñíscola.

Peñíscola is a beautiful little town, lively & full of character and also a very popular holiday spot amongst Spanish and foreing tourists throughout the year. There is a castle, called The Moon Pope Castle which is a very popular attraction nowadays. The castle is part of the tale. It sits on a rock about 64 metres above the sea, a rock which is joined to the mainland by only a narrow strip of land. Due to its strategic location, was wanted and taken by all sorts of invaders in the past: the Greeks, the Romans, Arabs and Christians. The Knights Templar built the castle on the remains between 1294 and 1307. Later, in the 15th century, Pope Benedict XIII (Moon Pope)moved in for 6 years until he died. Popular films like El Cid or famous series like Game of Thrones have filmed in this particular place. Peñíscola is cosidered the most beautiful village in Spain according different survey researches. Come to Castellón and visit Peñíscola.

5.- The airport

The new Castellón Airport was opened last September 2015. For now Ryanair is the only airline which operates in the airport, connecting Castellón with Bristol and London. The flight from London to Castelón operates 3 times a week, on Tuesdays,  Thursdays and Saturdays along the year. Otherwise the flight from Bristol only operates during the summer season, from April to October and twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays. A new flight connection between Bucarest and Castellón with Blue Air will start from June and you can already buy your tickets in the website. This new airport is a signal that Castellón is getting popular, the numbers of the passengers flying “from” “to” Castellón confirm this growing and this airport has already passed in front of many Spanish airports.

Gili Kedis. A heart-shaped island

Gili Kedis - Lombok

Gili Kedis – Lombok

When I saw the aerial picture of this island in Facebook, I just fell in love with it. I was double-checking my trip to Indonesia as I knew where to go already, basically everything was planned. The tour was perfect, nearly 20 days visiting the most popular highlights of Indonesia throughout Java, Bali, Lombok and Gili Islands. But for some reason (or coincidence) the life put in front of my eyes a stunning picture of this island bringing up the option to go there. I didn’t even know where exactly the island was located but if I didn’t mind ( I didn’t care to be honest) where about it was, I only wanted to go somehow. I messaged the guy for which I saw the picture in Facebook as he probably could give me information about that island. His answer was quick and he gave the name of the island as well as few links to get further information. What was my surprise? This heart-shaped island was located in Lombok, not too far from the places we planned to go. Then again, we re-planned our trip even though my friends weren’t sure of that, due to the idea of spending one night under the starts (with no shower and light basically). I didn’t mind what they thought, I only wanted to go and that was it!

We knew how to get there, it was planned perfectly, but you can’t plan anything as a backpacker. A taxi would have driven along the coast to the nearest point of the island and then a local boat would have sailed to it. But for coincidence again, we met a local guy with a boat which took us straight to the island. We did deal the price for two days and we had our own private local boat for only 500.000 rupiahs each (20£). We were sailing more than two hours along the Lombok coast, it was amazing!! We first stopped in Gili Sudak, a small island next to Gili Kedis with a local restaurant and a hotel. Fresh fish and rice with a coconut was our lunch..mmmm…..yummy!!

After more than two hours sailing along the Lombok’s coast and our break in Gili Sudak, we finally arrived to Gili Kedis, that small heart-shaped desert island, which was our home for two days and one night. Yes, we had our own island, it’s incredible… a dream came true and perhaps we felt totally full of happiness. We were alone, nobody was in there, only us. A small wooden house was our dinning and sleeping area, it was perfect. It seemed like that wooden house was built specially for us. Being surrounded by only water in a small piece of land made me feel unique; but also made me think of how happy you could be with only few things rather than luxury. Once settled, we only had one more thing to do: enjoy our small heart-shaped private island. I probably saw in Gili Kedis the most beautiful sunset ever (check my Facebook page to see the time-lapse sunset video). Once the sun faded into the horizon, the sky became even more colourful. First in colour blue and then in purple. But the nature surprised us when the sky became full of red, like the Earth planet was bleeding out. I will never forget that moment, we were sat on the shore, in silence; we even weren’t able to say a word. That moment was for us, and forever!

The dinning and sleeping area

The night was fine, long but funny. We couldn’t sleep at all due to the uncomfortable wooden house, but that was our island, our private island, our small heart-shaped private island; we didn’t care about how much uncomfortable the wooden-house was, you know why? Because there is no such a price in the world to pay that feeling. We woke up at 2.00 am thinking that we might have seen turtles as our captain commented, but unfortunately the turtles didn’t come. At least we saw few start-fish which got stuck in the shore due to tide. At 7.00 am our captain was waiting us. It’s so early mate, let us have our breakfast at least!! We said to him. So after breakfast and packing… our local boat transported us into the next adventure: I will write about it soon!

If you want to visit Gili Kedis, you will find different options from Lombok; we hired a local boat from Senggigi (North West) for two days. The price was reasonable good and the experience amazing! If  you are in Bali or Lombok, keep in mind Gili Kedis as you will live an unforgettable experience.

Es Vedra Island from Cala d’Hort Beach

Es Vedra Island is an ardours rock arising out of the Mediterranean Sea. It is situated in the south-west of Ibiza and lots of mysteries involved this magic island. Its insolent and seductive shape is able to attract your attention for hours. There is a viewpoint just in front of the island which is popular for being the best spot of Ibiza to see the sunsets. There is also a beach opposite the island named Cala d’ Hort Beach where you could spend hours observing the island and getting hypnotised by its magnetic power.

La isla de Es Vedra es una impetusosa roca que emerge desde las profundidades del Mar Mediterraneo. Está situada en el sur-oeste de Ibiza y muchos misterios se le atribuyen a esta isla mágica.

GILI TRAWAGNAN ISLAND – LOMBOK – INDONESIA

Gili Trawagnan Sunset with Bali as a background

Gilli Trawagnan Island is one of these idyllic and tropical island where you would like to stop the time forever. It also offers one of the most impressive sunsets you might see in your entire life. The colourful sky hypnotises you for as long as the sun is going down and Bali Island is part of the show as a background. Once the sun is set down behind the Bali’s Volcano, the sky becomes even much colourful, changing the colours practically every minute and offering a real nature show which is able to hypnotise you and take you out of this world. The sunset takes around 45 minutes, but if it was longer, you could spend hours and hours observing it.

La isla Gilli Trawagnan es una de estas típicas idílicas y tropicales islas donde te encantaría para el tiemo para siempre y la cual además ofrece uno de las más impresionantes puestas de sol que jamás podrás ver en tu vida. El cielo colorido te hipnotiza tanto tiempo como dura la puesta de sol y con la Isla de Bali de telón de fondo. Una vez el sol se ha puesto por el volcán de Bali, el cielo se convierte aun más colorido, cambiando los colores practicamente cada minuto y ofreciendo un aunténtico espectáculo el cual es capaz de hipnotizarte y transportate fuera de este mundo. La puesta de sol tiene una duración de unos 45 minutos, pero la podrías ver tanto tiempo como durara la puesta de sol.

CIRC OF GAVARNIE – PYRENEES – FRANCE

Circ of Gavarnie in the Pyrenees – French face

If someone asks me one day where is the most beautiful place I have ever slept, I probably would say the Circ of Gavarnie in the French Pyrenees. A huge glacier surrounded by magnificent mountains and the highest Europe’s waterfall combine together to create one of the most stunning places in Europe. The views of this nature spectacle are able to keep your attention for hours, and the sound of the waterfall helps to create a mystic and magic atmosphere whereby you will be attracted forever.

Si alguien me pregunta algun día cúal es el lugar más bonito en el que jamás haya dormido, probablemente diría el Circo de Gavarnie en los Pirineos Fanceses. Un enorme glaciar rodeado por imponentes montañas y la cascada más grande del mundo combinan juntas para formar uno del los lugares más preciosos de Europa. Las vistas de este espectáculo de la naturaleza son capaces de captar tu atención por horas y el sonido de la cascada de fondo crea una mística y mágica atmosfera la cual quedarás atraído para siempre.
