A visit to the beautiful island of Formentera
For the Easter bank holiday I’d be taking a trip to visit the beautiful island of Formentera.
Have you heard of it?
Formentera’s in Spain. It’s 30-40 minutes away from Ibiza by boat. It’s actually the smallest of the Balearic Islands which also include Mallorca and Menorca.
Mostly unspoilt, the serenity of this little island is far from the party atmosphere you’d find on its neighbouring big sister, Ibiza.
The island of Formentera is known for its long beautiful sandy beaches and crystal clear turquoise waters. You’ll find yourself wandering through quaint and colourful villages, refreshing seaside resorts and meeting pleasant locals along the way.
I pretty much had relaxation in mind for this trip and I was looking forward to it. I’d been to Formentera years ago on a day trip from Ibiza. I only spent a short time there, but it was amazing. I certainly hadn’t forgotten how beautiful it was so this was a chance to explore its beauty even further.
You may have read my 2019 travel bucket list post and noticed that Formentera isn’t a place I put down to visit this year. You see, that’s what makes solo travel so cool – it’s far easier to change your mind and go somewhere else at any time you feel like it!
Keep a look out for my posts on Formentera and what to see and do there while there.
