Located in the western Mediterranean close to the party island of Ibiza, the 20-kilometre long island of Formentera is home to only 12,000 people and has some of the best beaches in Europe.
Blissfully laid back and designed for lazy days soaking up the sun, Formentera attracts the type of holidaymaker who is looking to get away from it all and just unwind from the stresses of everyday life.
With laws in place to strictly restrict development, there is no chance that Formentera will ever become another Ibiza despite it being just 6.5 kilometres away from all the bars and dance clubs.
In Formentera, it’s all about the beach and the occasional respite for something to eat and perhaps a cocktail or two at one of the hotel bars.
In fact, if you were to ask someone what they did while on holiday in Formentera, they would probably smile and tell you: “Nothing it was perfect”.
With no airport getting to Formentera involves catching a twice-daily ferry from Ibiza Town or a new high-speed ferry from the town of Dénia on the Costa Blanca.
