Why rent a car or a motorbike in Formentera?

You’ve decided to spend a few days of holiday in paradise. Good choice.

Formentera is the best place where you can be in summer. Despite being such a small island, only 25km long, it’s full of things to do and places to discover.

Endless beaches and coves of transparent and blue waters, many leisure, cultural and sport activities to enjoy and the bustle and hustle of people coming from all corners of the world ready to enjoy these days on the island to their full.

You have made good note of our recommendations and you’ve booked your flight to Ibiza and your hotel or apartment in Formentera. You’ve even checked the ferry timetables from Ibiza to Formentera and found some excursions that you want to do.

Now you only have to decide how you are going to move around the island.

Being an island and being small implies that, during the peak summer months season, it is somewhat difficult to get around by public transport. If you don’t want to spend hours waiting for a taxi that never comes or depending on buses that don’t take you where you want to go nor as often as you want … We recommend you choose a good rental vehicle.

Bike, motorcycle or car, that will depend a lot on your travel plan, your tastes and your budget.

The bicycle is a good option if you are sports fan because you can ride along some really spectacular natural landscapes thanks to the marked routes on the island. However, the heat and humidity make cycling not an experience to suit everyone.

The best alternative is a moped or a motorcycle. From a 50cc scooter to a 125cc scooter, a motorcycle offers you a lot of independence. With it you can also get lost on hard-to-reach roads as well as avoiding traffic jams and parking problems. You’ll find it very easy to reach the most crowded places such as Cala Saona or the Cap de Barbaria Lighthouse without losing the feeling of freedom that you get when riding a motorcycle, of enjoying the breeze and feeling part of the environment.

If you travel with your partner or with a group, if you want comfort, if you plan to do many kilometres and travel all the island without leaving anything to see or if you want to take all your beach equipment with you, then the best thing is to rent a car. There you also have many options, from small utilities to minivans up to 9 seats.

On motorbike or by car, you’ll find it very easy to discover all the secret corners of this small paradise of the Mediterranean. Just remember that the rental car fleet is limited so it is advisable to book your car or your motorcycle online before arriving in Formentera.
