Formentera's resorts and villages

Formentera’s size means that its population centres have never grown much beyond being charming small villages, the slight exception to this is the resort of Es Pujols, the port La Savina and island capital San Francisco.


Formentera's population centres are villages of varying size, unsurprising since there are only 12,000 inhabitants, most of which are based in the island capital, San Francisco. Whilst some of these villages have grown over the years, even the largest places are barely towns.

Es Pujols is the island's only proper holiday resort: here a good number of restaurants and bars can be found and it is the centre of the island's nightlife. The gateway to the island, the port of La Savina also has some great places to eat and some bars dotted around the main harbour.

The villages of San Fernando, Es Caló and El Pilar de la Mola all have their own distinct old world Mediterranean charms and feel almost like they belong to another age. In these places you will notice that time seems to go more slowly and everything goes on at a very relaxed pace.
