How to move around Formentera?
The only option to go to Formentera from Ibiza is by boat. We can buy a ticket with the companies Balearia or Trasmapi or, our favorite, rent a boat in Santa Eulalia or Ibiza, go to Formentera and enjoy the coast and its incredible waters.
If we want to visit the whole island of Formentera the options we have at our disposal are:
- Rent a motorcycle in Formentera. It is our most recommended option if you go in pairs, it will cost you about 20€ and you can buy it right after getting off the boat. The best advantage you will find is the price and the possibility to park in the most crowded beaches.
- Rent a car car in Formentera. Second option, especially if you go with family or a larger group. It will cost you about 50€ and, like the motorcycle, there are rentals in the port itself.
- Formentera by bike. They can be rented for 10€ per day or taken on the same boat at almost no extra cost. The great advantage is undoubtedly the physical activity and the 0 environmental impact. It is possible to tour Formentera by bike, but be sure to go on a day with good weather (no rain or too much sun), wear sunscreen and hydrate yourself!
- Bus in Formentera. It is a small island, the influx on the busiest routes is half an hour to an hour in the high season months. We recommend it if you want to go to a specific beach and spend the day there (3 to 5€ each way).
We do not recommend you to rent the vehicle in Ibiza and take it by boat to Formentera, it is limited and in the end it will be more expensive. If you want to know the perfect route to visit the whole island in one day, please visit this post What to see in Formentera in one day?
