Why Visit Formentera?

Getting away from it all

The smallest and quite possibly, the most beautiful of the Balearics, Formentera’s subtle and laid back vibe will instantly seduce you.




The weather forecast will usually read “hot and sunny”. The sun shines on Formentera for over 300 days a year.




Without doubt, Formentera is fringed by some of Europe’s finest beaches. Long, long stretches of white, soft sand, against a backdrop of dunes, pines and olive groves. The water is the clearest and bluest imaginable – you could almost be forgiven for thinking you’re in the Indian Ocean.



Being only 20km long, and at its narrowest, just 2km wide, with very little gradient, it’s the perfect island to explore by bicycle or moped. Head to the lighthouse at Cap de Barbaria and enjoy the rugged beauty at Punta de sa Pedrera. Beach hop or stop off in one of the tiny villages for a cool drink and some tapas.


Deliciously fresh, straight from the sea. The food scene on the island, is as you’d expect – informal and relaxed.  You’ll find chiringuitos and beach shacks dotted all around the island, and there’s a strong Italian influence in many of the restaurants.



Each day in Sant Francesc is market day selling all manner of trinkets, whilst the artisan market just outside El Pilar de la Modar, you’ll find art and jewellery that you’ll want to find space for in your luggage.



Sailing, diving, snorkelling, kayaking and paddleboarding – the waters around Formentera are made for it all. Or just go for a refreshing swim.
