Formentera is the sleepy, unspoilt little sister of Ibiza. It is the fourth largest Balearic Island and it is just half an hour’s boat ride from Ibiza – there is no airport. When the day-trippers from Ibiza get the boat home in the evening, the peace and tranquillity of the island is total. Holidays on Formentera are all about relaxation. The pristine beaches are much quieter than anywhere else in Spain, and the pace of life is slower. It is easy to get around the island, as it is only 20km long. Choose a different beach every day and lap up the beautiful colours and the warm sun. Be aware – many of the beaches operate a ‘clothing optional’ policy. Inland, you can explore the hills and forests via a network of hiking and biking trails.
