Why Formentera...

Do you imagine Formentera to be a smaller version of Ibiza? Then you're going to be surprised - Formentera is different!

In fact it is so different from the other Balearic Islands you'll wonder if you're still in Spain! It looks more like one of the Greek Islands – only with beaches that are 100% better: miles of white sand and crystal clear water shining in all nuances of blue and turquoise.

Who comes to Formentera?

Formentera is an island for people wanting to relax in absolute seclusion, an island for individualists not for crowds. Here you cast off your clothes to be at one with nature, not to show off your beautifully trim body.

As Ibiza can be decadent and hedonistic, so here people want to live a simpler life of sunshine, beaches and at times solitude.

One of the last unspoiled outposts of modern tourism, it attracts people who want to hark back to simpler times.

What can you experience?

The sea is incredibly clear with an exceptional diversity of marine life, so an ideal environment to enjoy snorkelling, diving and fishing. The local fishermen will tell you, that the seafood caught around Formentera is second to none in quality.

Hire a bike and get away from the crowds along the well-worn cycle routes. Try eco-friendly transportation with electric vehicles to explore the island. Capture unique scenery on camera, join an excursion or charter a boat and travel to the nearby islands.

If you dream of stunning white beaches and swimming in azure seas amongst marine life -then you can experience all that and more. Discover almost deserted beaches and enjoy a simple picnic or dine in some of the friendliest establishments you'll ever find.

On warm sunny winter days in spring and autumn you can stroll for hours on almost completely deserted beaches; they are regarded as crowded with just a handful of people!

Getting There

Part of the charm of Formentera is the fact that the small island has no airport. Holidaymakers fly into Ibiza airport and make their way down to the harbour in Ibiza Town to catch one of the many ferries to this idyllic isle.

Ferries to Formentera leave from the port side which is across the road from Burger King. You can buy tickets all year from the low cost ferry Aquabus, or if you are travelling with a car from the ferry company Baleares right here.
