Why go to Formentera

Formentera doesn’t have the glitz and glamour of its neighbours – and that’s just the way this Spanish island likes it. A hippie haven, the smallest inhabited Balearic Island now lures more visitors than it once did but even then, it still manages to maintain its laid-back charm – so leave your worries (and shoes) at home.

Formentera dangles to the south of sister island Ibiza in the Mediterranean Sea. But, though only a 30-minute ferry ride away, its pace is far slower. It’s this laid-back air that’s attracted famous free-thinkers to the island, including Bob Dylan and Pink Floyd.

Today, many Formentera holidays are based around its beaches, regarded as some of the best in Europe. The pristine stretches of white sand that ring the island and look out over perfect azure waters could be from a Caribbean paradise. Even better, they won’t be as packed as the famous beaches on the Spanish mainland.
