foto 2021 formen zenThis weekend 200 people took part in Formentera Zen on Cala Saona beach, where attendees tapped into the unique spirit of the island from the water’s edge.

From Friday to Sunday (24–26 September), the seventh Formentera Zen focused on holistic wellness and featured master classes, workshops and lectures on dermatology, cosmetics, beauty, psychology, psychiatry, scientific and wellness dissemination, nutrition, batch cooking, health at home, physical exercise, yoga and more.

President and Councillor of Tourism Alejandra Ferrer was in charge of closing the event and welcomed participants’ positive feedback about the Consell-sponsored event overseen by Puro Bienestar. “Events like these are about giving our visitors and residents a space to reconnect body and mind”, she offered, underscoring Formentera’s association with physical and emotional well-being and remarking that Formentera Zen’s place at the end of the summer calendar was an “added bonus”.

Capacity at Formentera Zen 2021 was limited per current COVID-19 constraints. Organisers assert the island’s light, silence and natural beauty make it a unique and incomparable backdrop for experiences in health, wellbeing and happiness. Just like last year, the 2021 Formentera Zen will be held in full compliance with health and safety measures in force at the time of the event.

She also asserted it had become “an end-of-season filip for tourism” and a “natural fit for an island so intimately associated with health and physical and emotional wellness”.

Formentera unveils info-packed map of Es Pujols

foto 2021 mapa es pujolsBThe Formentera Office of Tourism has put together an information-enhanced map of the town of Es Pujols, an effort which the island’s president and tourism chief, Alejandra Ferrer, traced to area business owners and their push for a graphic display to highlight new developments like traffic flow changes and other information of interest to visitors.

The map gives prominence to the town’s major tourist draws, such as the dry docks, beach, waterfront promenade with market and Plaça d’Europa, where passersby can enjoy musical entertainment on many summer nights. Other sites of interest include the pharmacy, children’s play area and Tourist Info Point, where the maps will be distributed. They can also be found on the FOT website, www.formentera.es.

In addition to up-to-date general interest information, a special section points up traffic flow changes on Avinguda Miramar, from its junction with Carrer Espalmador to the water, and on Carrer Punta Prima, between Avinguda Miramar and Carrer Xaloc. Both arterials are reserved for pedestrians between 8.00pm and 7.00am.

President Ferrer said that local government hoped changes to the town’s layout would “deliver a boost to business activity and ensure both islanders and visitors can enjoy everything Es Pujols has to offer”.
