BEST PLACE TO STAY IN FORMENTERA

Es Pujols is the best place to stay in Formentera, in my opinion. Es Pujols is the liveliest village, with beautiful beaches, bars and restaurants by the sea. And it is the area favored by the Vips (sockplayers, soubrette ...).

Is formentera worth visiting?

Formentera is a wild island completely different from the neighboring Ibiza. If you want to stay "out of the world" for a few days laying down in one of the beautiful beaches that surround the island, Formentera is the place for you.
BUT if you want to stay in a touristic place in Formentera full of shops, restaurants, bars, nightclubs... look for an accommodation in Es Pujols.
 
In this village the evenings are lively, it is the most frequented place on the island, there are many tourists.
I recommend Es Pujols to those who do NOT want to be too secluded.
 
Favorite area for VIPs in Formentera (footballers and celebrities): you can find them in June, hardly in August, when there is the peak of the flow of tourists.

The Balearic Islands are not an economic destination in the summer months especially in Es Pujols you risk not to find anything, if you don't book early.
Es Pujols is close to the 2 most popular beaches of the island that extend into this isthmus (they are really suggestive):

TO GET TO FORMENTERA: 

☑️ Formentera does NOT have an airport. Book a flight to Ibiza by Ryanair.
☑️ From the port of Ibiza you can reach Formentera by hydrofoil or ferry.
☑️ Book a hotel or apartment by Booking.com 

FORMENTERA BEST BEACHES

Platja de Llevant and Playa de Illetas are the best beaches of Formentera.

Windiest area in Formentera

Platja Migjorn (Playa Mitjorn). This part of the island is the windiest and has consequently the rough sea than the other shore. 

I stayed in this part of the island on my first trip to Formentera, so many years ago in June.

There wasn't much to do in June. The area is quieter than Es Pujols.
From this beach you can see a beautiful sunset: one of the most beautiful I've ever seen. Photos do not make the idea.

In Migjorn there is a wide beach, as you can see in the picture. Since the area is "fresher" it is recommended to stay here in the hottest periods: late July - mid-August.

  • La Savina

Small village where ferries dock. In this place there is the tourist office so I advise you to go there to get the map of the island and some brochures.

Ideal place for those who want to stay in a quieter and economic area compared to Es Pujols but easily reach, by bus, car or scooter.

If you want to stay near La Savina it is best to look for accommodation that faces the Estany des Peix lagoon.
The suggested residence has a beautiful location overlooking the lagoon from which you can watch the sunset.

San Ferrán de ses Roques

This village does not overlook the sea but is a place in the hinterland of Formentera and I recommend it to those who want to take a touring vacation. Considering that the island is narrow, when I say "inland", It means that Playa de ses Illetes and La Savina are about 5 kilometers away.

This area is a good starting point to visit the whole island and the prices are lower than accommodation in the tourist areas. For some it may be a good compromise.
Evenings can be spent in the downtown: there are several restaurants with a nice atmosphere.

Es Caló de Sant Agustí


Here we are on the northern side of the island. The area is wilder, the accommodation are holiday apartments rather then hotel. The beach is "wild" as you can see in the picture.

The sea of ​​Formentera is something spectacular: a succession of isthmuses and coves where it is really impossible not to dip.

Cala Saona is a beautiful conca beach. An isolated cove which is accessed from a road shaded by the surrounding vegetation.

Getting around the island


The ferry that departs from Ibiza will head to La Savina. As all the tourists disembark here, you will find numerous rental agencies for scooters, bicycles... And also the bus that takes you to the main tourist resorts.

Curiosity:

Formentera owes its name to the Romans who named it Fromentaria which means the island of wheat.
The island is flat, without mountains with salt marshes, vegetation and inlets.
