Formentera is the quieter, and possibly even more beautiful little sister of Ibiza, located south of the larger island. You can take the ferry from Ibiza Port, or Playa den Bossa for just 10€, yet when you step off the boat you will feel like you have been transported thousands of miles away to the Caribbean.

It is famous for it’s beautiful sparkling white sandy beaches, and impossibly beautiful sapphire clear waters. Once on the island you have the pick of these beaches, from the glorious thin stretch of sand at Playa de Ses Illetes with shallow clear water and glamourous seaside restaurantes, to the quaint fishing village of Es Calo with its gorgeous little harbour and exclusive private little bays you will not regret visiting this heavenly island. The perfect chance to escape the day to day stresses of ordinary life.

If you only have one day to take in the island, for just 35€ you can book a planned excursion which includes travel too and from the island, and covers the cost of the bus to get you around the best parts of the island with an amazing fresh paella, salad, dessert and drink all included.

Escape from the modern world on Espalmador

For those seeking real isolation, Espalmador is for you. Located just north of Formentera, and visible from Playa de Ses Illetes this island is virtually virgin. The only way to get there is by boat, for around 19€ as the currents around the island are far too dangerous to swim from its neighbour, and the island is currently private.

There are no shops, so take plenty of water and sun protection, and be ready for a natural paradise like you have never seen before. This really is the best way to see a completely unspoilt environment.

Shopping with a difference

If deserted island paradise is a little too quiet for you, then why not try the Hippy Market tour instead. Every Wednesday throughout the summer you can hop on the boat tour, that will take you on an unmissable ride along the northeast coast of Ibiza, setting down at Cala Martina, two minutes walk from the famous and authentic hippy market.

You will feel yourself taken back in time to when the spirit of Ibiza was characterised by the hippy movement, with interesting stalls selling all types of curiosities and crafts to a backdrop of live music and good food and drink.
