Why Formentera?

Every beach is beautiful on Formentera. So wherever you are, you’re in the right place. Insiders love Platja de Migjorn, which is a bit rougher with its rocks, but the water is just as blue as in Platja d’Illetes, the most well-known beach. The second-smallest inhabited Balearic island has no airport, but it’s a high season destination for fashionable yachts. They come for the white sand, the crystal clear waters – and also because there are fabulous beach restaurants here, which welcome the well-to-do boaters to the table or deliver directly to the yachts.

Why is Formentera perfect for families?

Catch the authentic atmosphere on the weekend when Spanish families come to dine. Make a round in the evening and enjoy a drink in the village square in front of the Sant Francesc Xavier church, where people gather in the evening light. Just around the corner there are numerous good restaurants to be found such as the Can Carlos, the Canapepa, or Casadela. Or just do as the locals do and grab a piece of focaccia from Sa Pizza on the road running into the village.

Those who wish to see the island from a completely different perspective can rent a small motorboat from the port, no license needed, and go to the Cala Saona Bay, where you’ll pass small, mystical caves. Also worth seeing is the truly beautiful lighthouse Cap de Barbaria.
