Ibiza’s younger sister, Formentera is the ideal escape for those who prefer easy beach strolls and moped adventures over the glitzy clubs of Ibiza. Barely 20 kilometers long, it is home to some of the Mediterranean’s most ravishing beaches.
In this small island, our first recommendation is a petite hotel, Es Mares, in San Francisco Javier with barely 20 rooms. A perfect corner in a perfect island.

Moped to Cap Barbaria
The southernmost tip of the island is home to an incredible view and its famous lighthouse. Rent a moped and head out to discover one of Formentera’s signature spots.
