Formentera experience

Enjoy a boat and bus tour to and around Formentera to see its stunning coast with a delicious lunch plus beach and snorkelling stops.

This excursion is not running during summer 2020. As a fantastic alternative, check out the Discover Formentera instead.

Discovering Formentera is easy with this all-inclusive trip and you get to do it all in a day. Picture yourself aboard one of Excursiones Ibiza's traditional wooden fishing boats setting sail for a magical day out. You'll take in beautiful sights along the way before landing on Ibiza's hippy little sister island. It's the ideal summer day out.

Each trip packs lots into the day so you will get to see lots of coastal sights as well as the island itself, with commentary on the flora and fauna by a biologist. Starting from Playa den Bossa in the early afternoon, you'll go past stunning coastline, lighthouses and other landmarks.

Dropping anchor next to pristine islet Espalmador you'll be treated a mouth-watering paella lunch on-board, with time to jump into the water to do a spot of snorkelling before heading off.

Disembarking in the port of La Savina, a local bus takes you via the coastal area of Formentera's Ses Salines nature reserve to your first stop, the dreamy La Mola lighthouse, where you can take some photos. Next it's on to the pretty bay of Es Caló fora peek at the small beaches there and some extra snaps.

To round off your day, you'll take a trip to Formentera's beautiful beach, Playa Illetes for a stop and a bathe in the sea before heading back to the boat in La Savina to take you back to Ibiza.

The Formentera experience was an absolute joy! We are so happy we booked this. Formentera was amazing and the entire day was very well organized. The Paella was great! Stopping to snorkel was lots of fun. The tour guide was very friendly and pleasant. I highly recommend this experience to everyone visiting Ibiza.
