Side Trip to Formentera

Small is beautiful

About 24 kilometres (15 miles) due south of Ibiza, the island of Formentera is the smallest and least populated of the four Balearic Islands, and the only way to get there is by boat from Ibiza (regular ferry service runs from Eivissa and day trips from Santa Eulària des Riu and Playa d'En Bossa). What makes Formentera special is its pristineness, all but unaffected by mass tourism, and devoted to an eco-friendly, sustainable way of life. Intimate beach coves with crystalline waters such as Ses Canyes and Caló des Mort; romantic sunsets down on the south coast at Cap de Barbería Lighthouse; and healthy mud baths at the north's s'Espalmador Islet. More than perhaps anywhere in Europe, this is truly "getting away from it all," island-style.
