Tourism in Formentera

Mass tourism began on Formentera in 1980 although it avoided the reckless construction boom experienced by the other Balearic Islands. In general, hotels were not constructed on the beaches. The tourist infrastructure is focused around Pujols although there are a few hotel complexes on the beach of Mitjorn.

Since Formentera is very small, it is very good location for cycling. The beaches are amongst the most beautiful in the Mediterranean and offer miles of golden sand with turquoise water, a rarity in Europe. Despite the mass tourism, Formentera has retained its charm and tranquility.

The port of “La Savina" was extended in 1984 so now more than 5,000 vessels are able to dock in Formentera each year. Almost 500,000 passengers use the port.

General

Formentera is the second smallest inhabited island of the Balearic. Along with Ibiza and several smaller islands it forms the island chain know as the Pine Islands. Formentera is located about 6 miles south of Ibiza and is 13 miles long. The island has an area of 32 square miles. The main town is Sant Francesc de Formentera.

The north is the most densely populated part of the island whose principal towns are: La Savina, Es Pujols, Sant Ferran de Ses Roques, Es Calo and Sant Francesc de Formentera. La Savina is the only port on the island.

Es Pujols is the only tourist area of the island with hotels, apartments, restaurants, cafes, shops and bars. Between La Savina and Es Pujols extend two lakes, Estany des Peix Estany and Pudent.

Sant Francesc Xavier is located to the south of Es Pujols, in the interior of the island, and is the largest town with 1,500 inhabitants.

A narrow headland runs to the North West of Es Pujols, made up of sandy beaches, the most famous being Playa de Ses Illetes. Every day during the summer months, many boats from Ibiza are anchored here by enthusiasts attracted by the natural beauty of this beach.

The rocky, southern coast of Formentera is a nature reserve, sparsely populated and is characteristically rural. Like the southern coast, cliffs also line the eastern coastline. La Mola is a plateau which is only accessible by a winding road or by the old Roman road. In the centre of the plateau, El Pilar de la Mola may be found.

From the centre of the island extends a 4 mile long peninsula, which is never more than 1 mile wide. The longest beach on Formentera, Platja de Mitjorn, can be found on this peninsula and is where some of the larger beach resorts are located.
