The island gives the impression of a nature reserve. Only 12 by 4 miles in size, you could easily sail around this Spanish island in one day. Check out the magic of Formentera…
The reward for a long journey! Formentera.
Pura Vida! Formentera offers a caribbean style coastline….
Formentera is the least inhabited of the Balearic islands and has a flat landscape with long, beautiful beaches of immaculate white sand.
The best anchorage is Espalmador, a private island with a lovely sheltered beach, plenty of sand and turquoise waters. If the wind swings to the west you’ll need to be on the eastern side of the island – Es Pujols has a lot of sand but don’t venture too close in.
Same goes for Es Calo or the bay just west of La Savina (called either Sa Pedrera by the locals or Ensenada de Cabrita in many guide books). There is not much sand here, mainly rock & weed, but the Balearic Islands authorities have put free mooring buoys down for the last 2 years.
For a more active sailing itinerary you could include a day sail from Ibiza to Palma Bay in Mallorca, overnight there with visiting Palma and returning the next day.
