Thirty minute of ferry from Ibiza, this slice of island of 12 miles is located in the Balearic area. There is no much more than white sand beside the crystal sea. But the curious thing is that also a small little island has someone who knows her better than others: good knowledgeable Spanish, handsome Italian and Londoners, workers of the mass media industry, among others. Even though “chiringuitos” name change from time to time and nocturnal options have increased recently, Formentera continued looking at her big sister, Ibiza. Most visitors come to spend the day by ferry or private yacht, but to appreciate the quiet and inconspicuous nature of the island, you should stay a couple of days, rent a “scooter” and enjoy swimming on the desert beaches.
You never know who you can find in this institution of Formentera: Juan and Andrea, on the Playa de Illetas . Fabulous fresh seafood (mussels, lobster) and filleted fish with the right touch of olive oil are served on wooden tables in the sand under an incongruous Pachá’s flag (starters from 20€ ). In Playa de Migjorn, the 10.7 restaurant has a fusion menu (gnocchi, satay , sushi), an atmosphere of youthful crowd with a minimalist look (starters from 19€). Migjorn is the opposite of Flipper & Chiller, which has a pink interior, ice cream and juices at his bar at the right side and a Mediterranean menu that includes tapas in the restaurant. Upstairs there is a terrace with deckchair of white leather (entrantes desde 18€). Blue Bar has a Med menu and it is the right place to take a cocktail at sunset. After midnight the party moves the space room, which has a pool table (entrantes desde 18€).
Families play rackets, be relaxing on the surface of the water with turquoise shade on the beach of Illetas, a narrow stretch of sand backed by whitish dunes in the north of the island, overlooking the gray rocks protruding from the ocean. Lovers of water sports can rent hobie cats and windsurfs on a house in the northern part of the beach. On the other side of the peninsula, Llevant is a broader white sand strip. Do not worry about putting your swimsuit in the suitcase if you go to the beach Migjorn. The clothing is optional on most of the sand strip, most visitors practice nudism.
You can also explore the island renting a yacht. In fact, the best way to reach the clandestine caves in the four islands is by boat. In BoatBureau.com we have every kind of boats, anchored in any of the Balearic ports. Just choose when, where and with whom, and the boat will be waiting for you.
