A walk by Ibiza’s coast: Ses Salines

As we get closer and closer to the summer, already thinking of the Holy Week plans, we keep doing our tour by the Ibiza coast, analysing the best areas of the beach and the more complete lodging services, leisure, nature and restaurants.  For this month we have keep one of the most known beaches of Ibiza, the fashionable beach:  Ses Salines.

Located just ten minutes away from Ibiza city centre and from the great d’en Bossa beach, Ses Salines is a swarm of families, couples and singles in high season.  A place to see and be seen, but also an ideal site to relax and be carried along by that energy radiated by the beach in summer.

Ses Salines beach has the fortune of being next to one of the most beautiful natural areas of Ibiza, the great Ses Salines Natural Park of Ibiza and Formentera, a space with up to 2,800 hectares of salt lake and the great Es Freus marine area.  Perfect to enjoy hiking or practising scuba diving in Ibiza.

This coastal area melds peace and excitement during the entire summer and offers the advantage of being in one of the best connected areas of the island, next to the Ibiza Airport, in front of the Es Penjats islets, the Espalmador Island and, beyond, Formentera.

To lodge, it is better looking for a hotel in d’en Bossa beach because of its closeness to the city centre, the most lively night leisure area, and because of the excellent services and connections  it offers.

If you travel with your family, you can find several hotels for kids in d’en Bossa beach, although a quieter choice (even though it is more distant from Ses Salines) is booking the hotel in Es Canar: most of the hotels and apartments in Santa Eulària des Riu offer a family and warm environment, with specific services for the smallest family members.

Those who want something different in their trip to Ibiza, have an alternative away from tourist circuits: lodging in a hotel in Cala Portinatx, on the most northern point of the island, surrounded by nature and less frequented small beaches.  Another plan is an Only Adults hotel in Ibiza: quieter and with very interesting proposals to enjoy this magical island with your partner.

Holidays by the sea in Huelva in the Flamero Hotel

Today’s review is dedicated to the Flamero Hotel, a comfortable establishment located on Matalascañas beach in Huelva, in a setting that perfectly combines the freshness of the natural spaces with the fabulous presence of the sea right in front of the rooms.

A really curious detail of the Flamero Hotel is that it offers its clients the possibility to live a “rociera experience”, which consists in a visit to a typical house in El Rocío, where you will enjoy exquisite dishes and a traditional flamenco party. A really recommendable must-attend experience for discovering the Andalusian tradition.

Tenerife, an island of singular hotels

Tenerife is a charming island, perfect for sea lovers, active tourism followers and fanatics of good gastronomy. Eclectic and cosmopolitan. As such, it boasts about offering a different proposal for each kind of traveller, always a plan for you to find what you search. Following this trend, Tenerife is also an island of singular hotels, where you can find a really unique lodging as much easy as keep reading.

As great touristic centre of the Canary islands archipelagos, known throughout the world for its spectacular carnivals, worthy of looking those of Rio de Janeiro, Tenerife has one of the most complete hotel chain in Spain: counting only the four and five star hotels in Tenerife, the island adds up to an offer that exceed 50,000 beds.

Inside this wide variety of hotels in Tenerife, history treasures as Grand Hotel Mencey stand out, placed in the heart of Santa Cruz and one of the most emblematic hotels of Spain that, instead of its complete renovation, still keeps that colonial touch that makes it inimitable.
