When you picture the perfect place to relax and soak up the sun on holiday, you’re likely to be thinking of beautiful white sandy beaches and clear blue waters. If that’s what you’re after, Ibiza’s little sister island – Formentera – is the place to head on a day trip.
Formentera might be just a 40-minute boat trip from the famous white isle of Ibiza but you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to the Caribbean when you arrive at this tranquil, beautiful island. For a laidback break and an opportunity to experience some of the most stunning beaches in the world, planning a trip to the smallest of Spain’s Balearic Islands is an absolute must.
Compared to the busy and heady beaches of Ibiza, those of Formentera are practically deserted, attracting all kinds of day trippers to its shores.
Playa Illetes is one of the most popular beaches on the island thanks to its convenient location and clear waters. But if you’re looking for something more secluded, there’s a beautiful Formentera beach for you, including Cala Saona, El Tuburon, or Playa Tanga.
Of course, if you want a beach that’s surrounded by bars, restaurants, and has plenty of water sports on offer too, Formentera can cater for that as well. It’s not just relaxing you can get up to, the unspoilt beaches are away from the usual tourist traps. Instead, you’re given the incredible chance to snorkel, dive, or fish surrounded by breath-taking nature as you take in the diversity of the marine life and the serene atmosphere.
Whether you want to give windsurfing a try or plan to kick back with a cocktail, the beaches of Formentera offer the perfect vista for your holiday.
While it’s Formentera’s famous beaches that draw tourists in, there are other reasons to charter a boat across from Ibiza too. On the island, you’ll find enticing cycle routes, charming, traditional Spanish villages, and friendly places to eat or have a drink as you admire the view.
The beautiful beaches of Formentera are easily accessible from Ibiza and you can charter your own private boat or yacht for a truly luxurious and memorable trip.
