Discover Formentera

Try the Aquabus winter excursion to Ibiza's little sister island Formentera including bus tour and lunch.


If you thought that Formentera was out of reach this winter, then you'll be excited to hear that Aquabus Ferry Boats is doing daily trips to the island throughout winter. 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 11:30 (in October) and at 11:00 (November to April) taking just 1 hour to get to this pretty place. On arrival you'll take the local bus to San Francisco where you can do some sightseeing around the village before settling down to a delicious lunch in a local restaurant where you get a salad, a delicious paella and a drink all included in the ticket price.

Once your food has settled, it's back on the bus to go to the lighthouse at La Mola, the island's highest point to take in some great views. Then next it's Es Pujols, Formentera's very pretty intimate resort, where you walk along the beach and get some sea air.

The boat then leaves at 18:00 in October, November, March and April (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 €55 for adults and €35 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.
