- Every February at FULL MOON -


ALMOND BLOSSOM IBIZA


Every year, in February, under the FULL MOON, the annual ALMOND BLOSSOM ROUTE Night Walk is held on the island of Ibiza.


Absolute highlight of every newborn year is the flowering period of the Almond trees.
Especially the valley surrounding the small village of Santa Ines (Santa Agnes de Corona), attracts many visitors, for its large Almond Orchards.
All Spanish people love this amazingly beautiful display of nature on this Balearic island very much, and plan a short Ibiza holiday in this period of 5 weeks that the Almond Trees will flower.
The exact period of blossom depends on the quantity of sun and warmth in the resting period of the trees, and will be somewhere between mid-December and mid-February.

The entire valley will be covered in a pinkish-white blanket with a silvery shine of the Full Moon while people enjoy their walk through the moonlit fields. The overwhelming sweet scent of thousands of wonderful flowers is intense and not  to be forgotten.
For many Spanish people this event is a reason to return to this amazing display of nature’s beauty on Ibiza, over and over and again in February, to join the ALMOND BLOSSOM ROUTE Night Walk. Symbolic for the end of winter and the beginning of a new spring that will touch the beautiful Mediterranean island soon.

At FULL MOON in February, the annual ALMOND BLOSSOM ROUTE Night Walk is held in the beautiful valley of Santa Ines.

Participants to the walk gather around 20.00 hrs at the municipality house of San Antonio from where the group will start their walk, through the scented, flowering ALMOND ORCHARDS towards their destination Santa Ines (Santa Agnes).

Around 23.00 hrs. they will be welcomed by the APIMA, the association of the parents of the students of the school, (Associacion Pare y Mare Alumnos in Spanish), who will sell sobrasada (Ibiza sausages), cake and cafè caleta (typical, small cup of Ibicenc coffee with lots of alcohol), thick, warm chocolate milk etc.

  Almond Blossom Fairytale from Ibiza


An authentic ALMOND BLOSSOM fairytale from Ibiza:


The Ibicenc Prince and the Ibicenc snow.


Before many hundred years a young Ibicenc prince lived highly over the valley of Santa Agnés de Corona in his stately Finca.
The time came, that he wanted to see more of the world.
Thus he travelled over the far seas with its large ship, toward the north - to unknown regions.
So one day it happened, on the dock of the port of one the northernmost cities of the world - there she stood......

His blond dream woman.


When their eyes met, ........both fell strongly & deeply in love with one another.
Soon thereafter the prince married his dream woman and took her home to Ibiza, where they lived happily and content.


But then came the first Ibiza winters.
The beautiful princess stood at the window, looked over the large valley of Santa Agnés and tears came into her eyes.

To the question of the prince, what oppresses her, his beautiful wife answered: „I am homesick, I miss the snow of my homeland. “
The prince took her into his arms and comforted her: „Just wait! “, he said very mysteriously.


When on the next morning the sun was high, the beautiful prince took his beloved wife by the hand and led her to the window. She could hardly believe her eyes.

As overnight, below in the valley, hundreds of almond trees had come in flowering in radiant white - white as snow… blooming like the snow in her homeland.
The princess kissed her prince and never was homesick anymore.


Until today this marvellous display of nature repeats itself by the end of January to the beginning of February. Therefore devoted Spanish citizens, course-travelled, tourists and photo-inspired people from all over the world come to the Almond orchards of Santa Agnés de Corona, to surround themselves with the enchanting, flowering splendour of the Almond Blossom.
