What to see in Formentera in one day?

Have you already read our post “how to get around Formentera”? If you have come to Ibiza and you want to take a whole day to visit our neighboring island, save this post in favorites because we mark the best possible route.

First of all, you have to arrive early to the island, you can buy a boat ticket or rent a boat like the ones we have on our website. We recommend the latter if you want to know the best area of Formentera by the hand of our captain.

Formentera route in one day

Visit the village of San Francesc. Get off the boat, choose your best option to move around and visit the small center of Formentera, its small shops and typical bars. Stop at the pastry shop in the square and ask for a piece of flaó, a typical dessert of the island.

    1. Go to Ses Illetes. One of the most beautiful beaches in the world, but beware, it is always very crowded and, if the wind is favorable, we prefer Llevant, indicated on the route, a thousand times more. You will be able to appreciate that “Formentera blue”, so impressive that it seems unreal.
    2. Take a photo at the Cap De Barberia lighthouse. Park in the nearest parking lot and walk 10 minutes to the lighthouse. It is a unique place, full of the mythical blue lizards and with a postcard perfect landscape.
    3. Climb La Mola. At 202 meters, it is the highest point of Formentera. It has unique cliffs. You will be able to see the whole island, sit and appreciate the views and, if you are lucky, visit the lighthouse of La Mola. On the way down, you can pass by the Mola mill and the village.
    4. Es racó de sa pujada. If you feel like doing a very short walking route but with unique views, we recommend this one. Disconnect and let yourself be enveloped by nature and the legends that surround the caves that you will find on the route marked on the map.
    5. Sa Punta de s’Anfossol. Just below the path, you can stop at Es Raco, one of the star stops of our boat route in the east of Formentera.
    6. Watch the sunset in Cala Saona. The day is ending and an experience not to be missed is watching the sunset from Cala Saona with a mojito from El Pirata in your hand. Another key point of our western route through the island.
