Discover Formentera from October to May

Enjoy a winter excursion to Ibiza's little sister island Formentera including bus tour and lunch.


If you thought that Formentera was out of reach in the low season, then you'll be excited to hear that Aquabus Ferry Boats is doing trips to the island several days per week throughout the winter season. With Aquabus you get affordable and magical trips from this well-established firm with a family feel.

The Formentera trip leaves from Ibiza Port from Tuesday to Friday at 11:00 taking just 1 hour to get to this pretty place. On arrival you'll take the local bus to the lighthouse at La Mola, the island's highest point to take in some great views. Then next it's Es Calo, a small old picturesque fishing port, where you can walk along the coast and get some sea air.

Next you'll continue on to the village of San Francisco where you can do some sightseeing around the village before settling down to a delicious lunch in a local restaurant including a delicious salad, paella, dessert and drink, all included in the ticket price.

Once your food has settled, it's back on the bus to the port. The boat then leaves at 18:00 in October, November, March, April and May (17:00 December, January and February), so you'll be back on Ibiza just before 19:00 (18:00 in December, January and February).

The price for this terrific trip is just €59 for adults and €39 for retired people and children aged 3-12.

There's a special price for Ibiza residents, tickets available directly at the ticket office.

It's a great value day to see what is a beautiful place that's happily rooted in the past and present.
