Guide to Formentera, Spain

The stunning cove of Cala Sahona offers you idyllic walks along the cliff above as well as the chance to rent pedal boats from the beach. You can drift out to sea and admire the luxury yachts often sailed onto the island.
The less well known beaches of Es Calo and Plaja Migjorn are a must visit, these less busy beaches are a favourite with families. Es Calo is a small fishing village with fabulous restaurants and a really relaxed atmosphere. Many of the larger hotels are located along Playa Migjorn so are more used by tourists than locals.

Illetes are by far the best beaches on the Island, however get there early as they really fill up. They are on the spits of Formentera and are truly beautiful. On the drive up to these beaches are salt flats where flamingos can sometimes be seen.
The capital of the Island is San Francisco. The other main towns are San Fernando and Es Pujols. Es Pujols is the liveliest of all the towns on the Island, with many restaurants, bars, and evening market and the islands only club – Xueno.

In the evening one of the best things to do is to take the Old Roman Road walk up La Mola (the domineering hill on the East of the Island). The restaurant at the top of the hill is the best place to dine, you have views of the whole Island, with the sun setting into the sea it’s really spectacular. At the top of the hill is the Islands famous hippy market where souvenirs can be brought at amazing prices. While you’re up there a trip to the lighthouse is also enjoyable.
