Bullit de Peix is one of the most representative fish dishes in our gastronomy. It is a modern version of Guisat de Peix, a traditional dish that fishermen used to make on their boats while they were out at sea
After all the clubs have had their closing parties, and all the airplanes have taken the tourists back home, and the beaches are left deserted, Ibiza is reborn as an island full of peace and serenity. An Ibiza replete with traditions, customs, culture and natural beauty comes alive for the local islanders and, on a lesser scale, tourists. The heartland of the island offers a variety of ways to enjoy autumn. Would you like to hear our top suggestions?
As the season winds down, we realize that the island has once again given us a summer to remember – luminous days and glowing nights, unforgettable walks and magical sunsets… For all of these treasures, we would like to express our gratitude. This year, Agrotourism Planells has offered valuable tips on the best places to visit, activities to pursue, restaurants to eat at and beaches to swim at. In retrospect, we decided they were such good suggestions that we would roll them all into one post, as a small souvenir of the summer of 2017, in appreciation of your loyalty.
In the Pitiusas we have a total of 14 towers if we count the 4 that stand on Formentera (Punta Prima, Pi des Català, Punta Gavina and Cap de Barbaria) and another one located on Espalmador (from which it gets its name). The 9 remaining towers are spread across Ibiza. Two are inland towers (one built into the Sant Antoni Church and the other into the Santa Eulàlia church), while the remaining 7 are dotted around the coast.
The defense towers that dot the Pitiusan coast were part of a public works program begun in the18th century, during the reign of Charles III. They were built in an attempt to detect the approach of Saracen pirate ships, which regularly raided coastal villages and settlements, stealing salt, fish and harvested foodstuffs. To warn islanders as soon as a pirate ship was sighted, the watchmen manning the towers would send smoke signals or, alternately, light fires if the sighting had occurred in the dark of night. When the country folk saw these warnings, they quickly gathered their most precious belongings and either hid in the forest or took refuge in a fortified church.
At Can Planells, we have one goal: to provide you with a memorable holiday. To that end, we would like to show you the island’s best face, steer you to its hidden corners (i.e. those that don’t get written up in the guide books) and, above all, make you want to come back. Forget everything you’ve ever heard about Ibiza and let us lead you on the adventure of getting to know it freestyle. What follows is a proposal of how a day could unfold for a couple on a romantic escapade – from the pleasure of waking up together in our agrotourism to the excitement of exploring the White Island’s special essence hand in hand. Take note of this small guide, which includes sun, beach, good food, a sunset, a romantic dinner and a bit of nightlife.
Ibiza, so beautiful it takes your breath away. White-sand coves lapped by turquoise waters and framed in the deep greens of the Mediterranean. If you are visiting the island, there is one experience you can’t miss out on: the simple pleasure of contemplating the island’s sunsets, those natural light shows that always evoke a round of applause as the king star exits the stage.
Ibiza is the place that best combines the nightlife with daytime leisure, and that is so that in our beautiful island there is room for everyone. It is well known that many of the best parties around the world are in Ibiza, and that the best DJ’s meet every summer in our discos. But let’s not forget something important… the island also offers peace and relaxation, away from the clubs and the party. If you are one of those who are looking in Ibiza for that haven of peace where to forget about work and obligations, than this post is for you! Note down these 4 Ibiza beaches where you can truly relax. Sshhh… Don’t tell anyone!
Santa Eulàlia des Riu is one of the most visited municipalities of the island as it has many interesting places to visit and, of course, here you’ll find the cozy coastal town of Santa Eulàlia, the main town of the north of the island.
Dalt vila, as charming as it is mysterious, will take you to another time in which its walls served as refuge for its inhabitants, with its entangled streets and whitewashed walls. A marvel at sight, an unforgettable experience and the heart of the island. Read more
The north of the island is known for being one of the quietest areas in Ibiza, the place where you can still find the ‘real Ibiza’, the one that still maintains its customs, offers pine green landscapes dotted with traditional white houses and with the less crowded beach coves of the coast. Knowing that there are still places like this, it is well worth visiting and enjoying a different experience to what one would expected from Ibiza. A day to take life easy, sip by sip.
