Formentera is the smallest of Spain’s Balearic islands in the Mediterranean Sea. With no airport it’s reachable by ferry from its more crowded, better known island neighbour, Ibiza, and makes for a popular day-trip destination in the summertime. It’s known for its clear waters and long stretches of beach backed by dunes and pine trees.
The island is very easy to get around, at the port La Savina you can find many car and scooter hires. Or why not hire an electric bike? Cycling is very popular as the island is small and flat with very few inclines. Its the perfect relaxing way for the family to explore!
Formentera is a snorkelling haven, with crystal clear waters bursting with under water wild life. The island itself is very open so there are very few shady spots so we recommend you prepare for this and bring plenty of sun cream! You can expect to leave Formentera with a golden glow if you take the right precautions!
Each summer it seems like 70% of Milan flocks to Formentera for a slower pace of life, consequently much of the restaurants and bars here are now owned by wealthy Italians, so Italian restaurants now out number the Spanish. Either way the food on the island is some of the best in the Mediterranean.
Sant Francesc is Formentera's 'capital village'. It has a main square, a fortress-church, a Trumptontown hall, and a cluster of streets, everyday in Sant Francesc there is a market, perfect for finding souvenirs for home!
In February you can expect temperatures to be around 16°.
