Formentera by boat

Located just south of Ibiza island, Formentera is often described as paradise. Exploring Formentera by boat surely comes close to heaven! With her long stretches of fine, white sand, Caribbean looking waters and beautiful coastline, this small, sleepy island is the perfect antidote to the bustling streets of Ibiza in full summer swing. No wonder it’s one of our most popular destinations for full-day boat charters.

Beloved by all who visit her, the Formentera coastline is truly a magnificent sight to behold and is full of secret caves used by the famous Ibicenco pirates of dim and distant past. Pirates that were once so prolific in the area and plundering so common, that the island was uninhabitable for a while. Fortunately for us, times have now changed and seeing Formentera by boat is now completely safe, oo aar!

See below some brief information about some of our fav Formentera beaches and check out this more in-depth blog post if you’d like to know more about more cool island locations.

Beach: Ses Illetes

Close to the small port of is perhaps one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. Quite aside from the fine, white powdered sand and astonishingly vibrant turquoise colour of the sea, Ses Illetes is also home to no less than 4 fantastic Formentera beach restaurants including the legendary Juan y Andrea.

Beach: Cala Saona

This beautiful, peaceful beach set in a natural, white-sanded cove on the west coast of the island is way off the beaten track and is (quite rightly) famous for its magnificent, stress-melting sunset views.

Nature reserve: Espalmador

An uninhabited, privately owned nature reserve with calm turquoise waters and natural mud baths. It can only be reached by boat or by walking through waist deep water from Formentera.
