The small and magic island of Formentera belongs to the Balearic Islands and is only 30 minutes away from Ibiza by boat. The entire island has over 20 km of white sandy beaches and beautiful coves to discover.
Formentera offers amazing landscapes full of wild nature and an average temperature of 19º during the entire year. In 1999, the island was declared a World Heritage place by the UNESCO. In 1235 it was finally conquer by Spain, exactly by Catalonians but it still has a cultural heritage from the Roman Empire and the Arabians. Known as one of the popular Spanish hippie island, it offers the perfect paradise to enjoy a few days during your sailing vacation in Ibiza, Mallorca or Menorca.
Formentera preserves a Mediterranean landscape with dry forests, pine trees, large salt lakes, shiny dunes, coves with crystalline waters and several beaches where you definitively will not find any footprint. It is really the perfect island if you like to discover sublime beaches and lovely ways to get to them by bike for example or by boat. The entire island still keeps the same charm as it had before being more touristic: the port is not that big and some areas still look like an old fisher town.
Formentera’s main port is called La Savina and is located north of the island.
It has a marina with all the essential services to cover sailing trips with 150 places to tie up boats. Give yourself the chance to discover Formentera during one or two days and sail back home with a sense of serenity.

Renting a boat in Ibiza is the start for enjoying also Formentera for a couple of days. You can also visit Formentera by public boat, taking it from the area of Figueretas in Ibiza but aBoatTime also offers you renting a small motor boat for 1 or 2 days in Formentera. It is definitively the best way to get the most out of this island! Some fabulous beaches in different areas are quiet difficult to find and access if not by boat. Do not miss Formentera during your sailing vacation in Ibiza and discover a unique and natural place in the Mediterranean.
If you love water sports or wish to try them during your sailing vacation, the island of Formentera gives you the chance to do so. Enough wild space and crystal waters are perfect to start your snorkeling experience. It is a very calm and safe sailing area with no waves and not very deep waters. Another great idea is to rent a bike. You will find plenty of stores at the main port to rent bikes for very convenient prices. Discover Formentera by riding a bike and go back to your yacht at the end of the day. Roads are width and safe because of the reduced traffic all over the island. It is a very real adventure to enjoy the landscape and be able to find unique spaces that will be the anecdote of your trip.
From aBoatTime, we recommend you: a hat and enough water because of the hot and dry climate!
On one hand, Formentera is a very quiet island and shows a bohemian style of the “flower power” age but on the other, it still offers a spoilt for choice in restaurants and shops. Enjoy the authentic nightlife, the bars and charming handcraft stores where you can buy original gifts. It is a good idea to improve a picnic for example because you will find restaurants close to the port but not so many in other surrounding areas.
Here we recommend you beaches to visit and spend the day on your sailing boat: Cala Saona, Els Arenals, Es Molí Marroig, Es Caló, Cala en Baster o Es cavall d’ en Borràs.
Yacht charter in Ibiza offers you a lot of advantages: nice weather, turquoise waters, deserted small bays, party time at the beach, an appetizer at your own sailing boat or nice lunch every day at a different port. Don’t think more about it and visit Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca and of course the magical Formentera.
