Nine essential places in Formentera that you can not miss on your first visit

If you have never been to Formentera and want to know which places you must see during your first visit, this is your post.

Get a pencil and paper and take notes so you do not forget anything!

1. The Beach of Illetas. A strip of sand flanked by sea on both sides, fine sand and water so transparent that you will feel that you are on another planet.

2. The Lighthouse of Cap de Barberia. In addition to being in a beautiful enclave, you will feel like in a movie arriving by motorcycle to the lighthouse, on the narrow road where it ends.

3. In search of the centenarian fig trees. Immerse yourself in the tradition and culture of the island, through the special way of holding up the huge and ancient fig trees.

4. Places with charm. In the summer months, the squares of the villages are filled with music with live concerts and a very good atmosphere.

5. Beach bars. Whether you like to be seen or not, you should try this unique experience in which all types of characters and professions come together to enjoy a beautiful sunset to the sound of music, while strutting and holding a gin tonic or some more sophisticated cocktail.

6. A virgin island. Touching Formentera is the island of S’Espalmador, where you will not find a “chiringuito” (beach bar) or restaurant. If you do not have your own boat, from the port of La Savina there are small boats that take you to this small island that will make you fall in love with the colour of its waters and its pink sand.

7. See the island from the viewpoint of La Mola. On the road that takes you to the village, you will find this viewpoint from where you can admire the size and beauty of Formentera.

8. You should not leave Formentera without enjoying a sunset. It does not matter which place you choose while you are in the western part of the island where you can see the sun go down, since the only important thing will be who you share it with. It will be a very special moment.

9. Exclusive paradises. It is a small island but even in the high season months you can find secluded nooks, only known by residents, where you can rest in peace and quiet. If we published them on here, they would stop being exclusive, so once you get to the island, ask the locals, with a smile.
