Formentera - sandy beaches and turquoise water
Ibiza and Formentera, along with Mallorca and Menorca make up the islands of what is collectively known as the Balearics. Together with its neighbour Ibiza, it is known as the Pitiusas or “Islas de Pinos” from the ancient Greek. Tourism has provided a boom over the past 50 years due to its warm and pleasant climate all year round. Ibiza is particularly famous for its nightlife whereas Mallorca attracts the more cosmopolitan person, the King and Queen of Spain for example; and Menorca is chosen by tourists who require a more quiet approach. Formentera on the other hand, only a half an hours ferry drive from Ibiza, is the paradise of white, calm beaches and still has mostly been undiscovered by the mass tourism. A true gem for a calm holiday of relaxation.
