Formentera stays firmly at the forefront among the most visited and trendy holiday destinations in Europe. The main reason for its success remains its unique and wild beauty. The increasing flow of tourists has not spoiled the ecosystem and the spectacular nature of this corner of paradise, that UNESCO has declared world heritage in 1999.
The coast is a string of wonderful coves, cliffs with breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea and white sand beaches including Ses Illetes, regularly mentioned among the best beaches in the world. The small size of the island (83 km ²) makes it easy to move around by scooter or even by bicycle.
Among the main towns: Es Pujols, today heart of the tourist booming, and the most characteristic villages of the interior, Sant Francesc (the capital) and Sant Ferran, where the local cultural traditions especially stay alive.
Formentera is also known for the fine dining and the offer of bars and restaurants.
Do not miss the traditional aperitif at sunset in one of the historic chiringuitos that here still live together with the most modern beach clubs.
The Mediterranean climate is very good for most of the year. It is very pleasant even in the months of low season, when temperatures are ideal and the island fully shows its astonishing beauty.
