How to get to Formentera island from Ibiza Town
Formentera is a beautiful island about 30-40 minutes away from Ibiza Town by boat. You’ll find getting to Formentera pretty easy, but it involves two journeys. You’ll need to take a flight and a ferry since the island doesn’t have its own airport. If you’ve never been and want to visit, here’s a rundown on how to get to Formentera island from Ibiza Town, Spain.
The journey – part one
Ibiza airport to Ibiza Town (Eivissa)
The first part of your journey is getting from the airport to Ibiza Town. Port d’Eivissa is the port for connections to Formentera island and is located in Ibiza Town. There are two options to get you there if you haven’t arranged a hire car or have a pick-up scheduled.
The cheapest way to get to Ibiza Town is by taking the L10 bus (The L just stands for line). It’s around €3.50 for a one-way single ticket (at the time of visiting – April 2019). It takes about 25-30 minutes or less depending on traffic.
The second option is to take a taxi which will cost you anywhere from €10 upwards. It’s quicker than the bus but on the other hand, it’s more expensive.
