So famous is this valley for its blossom that night walks under the slivery glow of the full moon are held. Walkers gather at 8pm at the municipality house in San Antonio where they depart for the almond orchards of Santa Ines. At around 11pm as the walkers finish their route they are welcomed with people selling sobrasada (sausages) and caleta, a traditional Ibizencan coffee warmed with alcohol. currently flies to Ibiza on Tuesdays, Thursday and Saturdays from London Stansted with one way flights starting from £24.99 including online check in but no taxes and charges and baggage allowance.
