Formentera (Island)



  • Esplamador beach, Formentera.

Its main attractions are its coastline formed of cliffs and fine sandy beaches worthy of a desert island, and its practically undeveloped natural setting. You'll find numerous hidden corners where you'll feel completely at one with nature.Read more...

You'll be able to swim in crystal-clear waters at over 20 kilometres of white sandy beaches and in numerous coves, or in any of the island's secluded corners. Some of the best beaches are Es Caló (a favourite with fishermen), S'Arenal (sand mixed with tiny shells), Cala Saona (one of the loveliest coves) and Es Pujol (the most popular with holidaymakers). These beaches are regarded as being idyllic for their tranquillity and for the absence of any construction along practically the whole coast. During your visit to the island you'll see natural surprises like the rocks in the stone desert known as Sa Pedrera or the small lagoon of Estany des Peix that opens onto the sea. You can also visit important monuments like the church of Sant Francesc Xavier located opposite the Town Hall, the archaeological sites of Cap de Barbaria and Ca Na Costa and the La Mola lighthouse, a magical place mentioned in the novels of Jules Verne. If you're on the island on a Sunday or Wednesday afternoon, don't miss the La Mola Arts and Crafts Fair, with musicians, entertainers and jugglers.
