Formentera is the smallest inhabited island of the Balearic Islands (Spain). It is located to the south of the island of Ibiza just 2 nautical miles from it (about 3 kilometers), although the distance between the ports of Ibiza and La Savina (Formentera) is 12 miles (19.3 km).
Despite being a small island (83.2Km2), its cut-out shape means that it has a large stretch of coastline (69 km) in proportion to its surface, with many beaches, numerous coves and solitary places to get lost. The island is small, but accessible and comfortable. We can cross it for the most part by bicycle, along the green paths, pine and juniper forests and its rural interior. For longer journeys we can use a car or a motorbike.
The island of Formentera stands out for its great environmental beauty and for its still wild landscape of dunes and beaches, which are preserved in excellent condition. As soon as we disembark in Formentera we will breathe that air of characteristic calm and immediately we will be captivated by its waters, unique for their transparency and turquoise color that evokes tropical latitudes.
Climate and Geography
The characteristic climate of the island is the typically Mediterranean, being able to include within the temperate-warm variety and the Levantine-Balearic sub-variety: warm and not very rainy, with more than 300 sunny days a year.
Dry summers, mild winters and little abundance of rain characterize our climate. In addition, the small dimensions of Formentera, as well as the small size of its relief, mean that the climatic characteristics vary very little from one place to another.
Formentera has a peculiar and captivating geography, with an area of 83.2Km2 and a 69km coastline. The maximum height is 192 meters in Sa Talaïassa, a point located in the high plateau of La Mola. Its mild climate gives rise to a Mediterranean vegetation that combines dune zones with forests of pine and juniper, some conifers that give personality to the island.
