See a side of the Balearics that you’ve never seen before with Formentera Holidays. Known as “Ibiza’s Little Sister,” Formentera is just 30 minutes from Ibiza by express ferry. These ferries regularly leave the Ibiza Town and cost roughly €20.
Despite being so close to Ibiza, Formentera feels a million miles away in so many different ways. There are no high rise buildings here and that contributes to the small island paradise feel. Even the majority of the hotels are privately owned, which does away with the big “super club” feel of parts of the main Island.
This laid back attitude and lack of recognisable branding has lead to the life on Formentera being described as closer to the Caribbean than the Mediterranean.
The beaches here are renowned among the Balearic Islands for their powder white sands and crystal clear blue waters. Most of the beaches have been awarded Blue Flags, meaning they reach incredibly high standards of natural beauty. The beaches are also surrounded by many authentic, laidback restaurants and bars that channel the easygoing ambience of the whole island.
