The Mallorcan chef Andreu Genestra, with a Michelin star and two Repsol suns, tells us how he financed his cooking studies by working as a waiter "because they paid better". He has just moved his gastronomy to the Hotel Zoëtry, in Llucmajor, where he tries to maintain the essence of his project, in which the Mediterranean and sustainability are protagonists. An example of this are the figs provided by Montserrat Pons, holder of the largest collection of this tree in the world, which she has cared for for 28 years on her estate in Son Mut Nou.

Maca de Castro has also triumphed betting on the garden, perseverance and heart. "To be happy with what we do, we have to reconcile," says the visible face of the DCastro group, with a Michelin star and a green star, three Repsol suns and a great future projection.

Between Cala Conta and the isolated beach of Cala Codolar, the Swiss chef of Leonese origin Andrés Fernández offers in his gastronomic 7Pines Resort a gastro offer committed to the land and well-being, with wonderful views of the island of Es Vedrá. It is one of the many options offered by Ibiza, of which we show its most beautiful coves and the most attractive plans for the moments when you want to know its bowels beyond its eternal party.

The products of the land also receive special attention: from the historic wines of Menorca, which are experiencing a sweet moment in valuation, growth and national and international consolidation, to the Aubocassa oil of Mallorca, top brand among the top. And for the more cooks we offer a menu with a very Mediterranean soul, created by Esther Bonet and Pere Vendrell, from Sa Brisa.

We visit some of the most beautiful beaches and walk through the essential beach bars of the archipelago. We also offer a 48-hour tour of Formentera, an Eden where it is possible to dive into incredible blue waters, explore fishing villages and snack at a hippy market.

In this issue we also propose a journey along some of the best roads, linking beaches and lighthouses, wetlands and caves, historic villas and mountains with incredible views. And to top it off, La Mala Rodríguez, pioneer of Spanish rap, confesses what she likes to do most when the heat comes: "In summer I like to be naked all day, in the pool. I love being in balls, it's the healthiest thing in the world."
