One of the crowning jewels of the Balearic Islands

With a blanket ban for beachfront buildings, the beaches on the island are largely untouched making them perfect for beachcombing and undisturbed relaxation. Likened to the beaches found in the Caribbean, Formentera boasts large stretches of sandy beaches including the 5 mile coastline at Migjorn.
Despite only being 17 kilometres away from the hustle and bustle of Ibiza, the atmosphere on the island is calm, collected and simply divine. Soaking up the laidback ambience of the pristine white sandy beaches you can indulge in some of the locally produced spirits, like sangria, in one of the many open air cocktail bars and cafes close to the harbour in La Savina. Mainly known for being the entrance to Formentera, La Savina also hosts two pretty inland lagoons which are perfect for a little more privacy.
Travelling around the island to the capital of San Francisco you can shop till you drop in the many small stores around the streets. Pick up some handmade souvenirs or locally sourced and produced products to take a taste of Spain home with you. Before leaving the unrushed central square take the time to watch the slow world move by over some tapas and sangria.
A historical point of interest in San Francisco is the cube shaped church which once acted a double life as a fortress. Cannons were positioned in the church until the mid 19th century to protect the inhabitants from the occupants of the Jolly Roger.
For a touch of culture, spend some time at Es Calos beach. More rocky than some of the other luscious beaches on the island, this is a hotspot for local fishermen. Watch the small boats conducting their daily business before making one last call to Estany de Peix. Manoeuvre your charter through the narrow inlet to come out onto a large salt lake. This area is protected so no anchoring is permitted but this is the key location for watching the African migrants, flamingos. Watch from a distance as they come into land and listen to the sound of nature's paradise.
