For many years Formentera was Ibiza's shy and unassuming little sister, but that’s changed as the island has grown in popularity. You’ll find Formentera has a less lively, more laid-back feel than the other Balearic Islands; more of a beach loungers paradise, helped by the fact it features some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean.
The only way into the island is by ferry with fast and frequent connections offered from Ibiza as well as from mainland Spain. Due to Formentera’s proximity to Ibiza, the crossing connecting the two islands is short and generally operated by small passenger vessels with less on-board amenities than you may expect to find on a longer crossing. The frequency of departures increases in high season to meet with demand.
Ferries from mainland Spain are less frequent and take longer however the on-board experience will be a more comfortable one. This crossing generally runs between April and September. Choose between 362 ferries to Formentera each week, with up to 52 sailings departing per day from 5 different routes.
