FORMENTERA - the best insider tips for vacation, holiday & travel
Formentera, just 2 miles from the infamous party island of Ibiza, is the southernmost part of the Spanish Balearic Islands. It is a total contrast to Ibiza since the main allure of the peaceful island, apart from its natural beauty, is utter serenity. The island still draws many tourists during the peak season but the beaches never get too crowded. White sandy unspoilt beaches, azure clear water that lets people see well into the bottom of the ocean floor and magnificent seaside cliffs are just some of the natural wonders. Ses Illetes Beach on the northern area and Migjorn Beach in the southern shores are the bigger and more famous beaches where there are plenty of watersports activities. Cala Saona Beach on the western shore and northern coast Es Pujols Beach have brilliant cliffs that are easy to climb. There are several interesting structural, historic, and cultural attractions as well, like churches, castles, museums, galleries, and ancient Roman and megalithic sites. It is ideal to hire a bicycle or a moped to get around and see places like the La Mola Arts and Crafts fair that is open on Wednesdays and Sundays (during months of May-Oct) and go souvenir shopping, the La Mola Lighthouse perched on the highest peak of the island and the nearby windmills of Molie Vell, Cap de Barbain’s Lighthouse on the southern end, Saint Francesc Xavier Church and Sa Tanca Vella Chapel, Cap de Barbaria’s 3 megalithic sites and Cana Costa megalithic settlement, and the Roman roads and castle in Can Blai.
Formentera is just a 30 min ferry ride from Ibiza. There are also scheduled ferries from Denia during the peak tourist summertime season.
