Ringed by spectacularly clean beaches, this island’s flat limestone plain is a beautiful semi-arid environment, featuring fig trees and wild rosemary fields as far as the eye can see. The east of the island is dominated by a 187m high peak; La Mola, and an 86m peak Barberia, in the west. Both make beautiful relaxed climbs, and have wonderful views of the island and the ocean from their summits.
It is the beaches though, that are the prime tourist draw for the island. Offering both nude and clothed areas, this island has both heavily populated and more private beaches. To reach these stunning beaches we highly advise all visitors to book car hire in Formentera, as buses are not always reliable. You may find yourself waiting a long while for one to pass.
