Waiting to be discovered

The smallest of the main Balearic Islands, Formentera is more laid back and generally less touristy than its bigger neighbors.

It doesn’t have an airport, so most arrivals are by ferry from Ibiza Town or Denia on the Costa Blanca.

Unlike the other Balearics, it's mostly flat, making it good for cycling and hiking.

However, it does still have the beautiful beaches, craggy coves and crystal clear waters so typical of this island group.

Another contrast is Formentera’s liberal policy on nude sunbathing - it's allowed on many beaches.

One of the longest beaches is at Platja de Migjorn, where the white sands shelve gently into the sea.

On the other side of this stretch of land is Es Caló, where most Formentera apartments by the beach are found.

The sand dunes at Es Pujols are also fantastic, and just inland is Estanh Pudent, a large lagoon that attracts rich birdlife.

On the other side of the lagoon, La Savina is the arrival point for ferries and a good starting point for Formentera sailing trips.

The capital, Sant Francesc Xavier, has a whitewashed, 18th-century church at its center and a few Formentera hotels with pools on Booking.com.
