Formentera is located just 3 nautical miles from the tourist hotspot of Ibiza. Ibiza is the ideal place to start your yacht charter. Despite their close proximity, to sail along the Formentera coastline offers a unique experience that is very different to an Ibiza yacht charter.
Formentera Yacht Charter
Formentera is largely uninhabited, with a series of small villages dotted across the beautiful island. As a result, the island is largely unspoiled. This makes a charter holiday around Formentera ideal for anyone wishing to escape the high life of the main island of Ibiza. If you wish to experience the gentle footprint of man on Formentera, visit Sant Francesc Xavier. This is the island’s largest village.
Keep in Mind When Exploring Formentera
Best time to visit
The ideal time to visit Formentera is from spring through autumn, specifically late April to late June, when the waters are safest for swimming.
Cruising areas to visit
With its prime location, Formentera serves as the perfect base to explore the Balearic islands by boat. Sail east to sheltered coves along the Ibiza coastline or discover the uninhabited Espalmador island.
Enjoy the night life
Though subtle, Formentera has a lively bar and club scene. Make sure to celebrate the sunset on the beach clubs and bars.
Where to Lunch on your Formentera Yacht Charter
Also, for an authentic Spanish lunch or some cocktail therapy, make sure to visit the iconic Juan Y Andrea. Juan Y Andrea is located at the heart of Playa Illetas Beach. Exclusively accessible by yacht, Juan Y Andrea offers an escape from the busy restaurants of mainland Ibiza. Furthermore, it offers an exquisite palate of authentic Mediterranean cuisine.
For sun-worshippers, the long white sand beaches offer an idyllic setting to bathe in the Balearic sun. Clothing is optional, in this region famed for nude beaches. So make the most of the exciting toys your yacht charter offers in the calm, clear waters of this 19 km long island.
Other great locations to include in your itinerary include the mainland of Ibiza, the beautiful Menorca and famous Mallorca. Each of the Balearic Island yacht charters offers unique experiences to make your charter truly memorable.
