A day trip to Formentera

  • Insider tip:

    To beat the crowds, get there early and book a sunrise horse ride.

Only reachable by boat, the island of Formentera is occupied by white sandy beaches and translucent waters that would rival those of the Maldivian oceans. Offering a pause button from its bigger and bolder “sister island”, we can vouch that Formentera offered much-needed escapism when Ibiza got a little too much. Leave your phone at home, clamber onto the ferry and float across to heaven before returning with sand-ridden hair, little concept of time and countless memories.
