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.

Among pine trees, boards and sand, in one of Spain’s best beaches, Los Lances (Tarifa), sits Agua Beach Bar. More than a beach bar, it is a magnet for those beach lovers who want to enjoy the best mojitos in Cadiz. If you are not in the mojito mood, switch gears and enjoy a fine pi├▒a colada. The selection of cocktails, smoothies, beers and other chilled beverages will suit everyone’s tastes.
From any of its lounge chairs you will enjoy life as it goes by, take a long siesta or watch a postcard-worthy sunset. If you also enjoy kitesurf, this will become your new sanctuary: with dozens of flags waving in the air, test your balance or watch boards, boards and more boards fly up in the air.
A unique, young ambiance in a spectacular location. If you visit Cadiz to enjoy your TARIFAs, don’t forget to stop by Agua Beach Bar. You might never want to return home.
Location: Los Lances Beach, Tarifa
As summer arrives to Tarifa, it is definitely the time head for its beach bars, chill outs, and sunsets with entertaining background music. Today we want to introduce you to a renowed hangout in Tarifa, Tumbao, an iconic place envolved in a relaxed atmosphere and located on the spectacular beach of Valdevaqueros.
Run by the three Whaley brothers and located on Valdevaqueros Beach Bar since 2010, Tumbao is considered by many as the ideal place to relax ‘tumbao’ (lying) on the lawn next to the beach, enjoying a refreshing mojito or beer, while watching the flying kites of those kitesurfing.
Although their mojitos of different flavours are excellent, you cannot leave Tarifa without trying one of its burgers. The magic of this place is also enhanced with the spontaneous or planned concerts which bring a lot of interesting and different folks to this place.
Because a full beach day in Tarifa starts early and ends late, you better not leave without lying at Tumbao.
Location: Valdevaqueros, Road N340 Km 75
Opening: from Easter to mid September
