About Formentera

Introducing Formentera

Ever dreamt of a place where all your troubles melt away, the water is an impossible shade of turquoise and relaxation is a way of life?

Welcome to Formentera, this little known jewel of the Balearics is the perfect place to unwind and find yourself again, and with fantastic views, great food and dazzling white sandy beaches, you’ll never want to leave.


Formentera is located a short ferry trip away, just off the coast of Ibiza. It has no less than 12 fantastic sandy beaches to soak up the sun on. During the peak summer months it can get a little crowded, but usually you can find your own piece of beach away from other tourists. And if you’re feeling peckish, you can get a snack or drink from one of the many chiringuitos (beach bars) scattered around the island.

The smallest and least developed of all the Balearic islands Formentera has an area of just 83 square kilometers, and a coastline of 69km making it perfect for exploring by kayak or boat. This idyllic island also has a number of excellent short walks, some with breathtaking views across to Ibiza (try the old roman path up La Mola), and has many pleasant cycling trails on which to explore the island. Bicycles, mopeds and cars can be rented from numerous places scattered around, including the port of La Savina.

Formentera’s capital is the pretty whitewashed village of Sant Francesc Xavier. With its various boutique shops, cafes, and restaurants, it is the perfect place for a spot of shopping, lounging over lunch or just sitting in one of the lovely plazas and watching the world go by.

Whether its shopping, eating, drinking, exploring or just sunbathing you’re after, Formentera has a little bit of it all, and if your idea of heaven includes all of these plus crystal clear turquoise waters, then consider it paradise found.
