Have you ever thought of going in Formentera? If not, I will tell you why you should go there for your summer vacations and probably at the end of this post you will start to pack your summer clothes and run to catch your flight to that beautiful island.

Are you a sunbathing lover? Perfect! In Formentera you will find white sandy beaches touched by clear cristalline sea, definitely suitable for discovering hidden treasures and whatching its inhabitants swimming around slowly with snorkeling and scuba diving.

If you like naturalist sunbathing in these beaches then it’s allowed, just take off your beachewear and relax on the fine sand!

The most famous beach is Illetes, 500mt of fine white sand and every water sport you can think about are waiting for you and your friends, when you finished kite surfing or water skiing you can choose one of many typical seafood spanish restaurants on the seaside.

Es Pujols is the right beach for the girls, why? Because after the sunset there is a wonderful hippy market where you can find hand made clothes, rings, necklaces, bracelets and flip-flops made out of beads.

Anyway don’t worry man! You can have fun too on the beach of Es Pujols when your girlfriend is shopping you can enjoy a fresh spanish beer on one of the many stands.

If are a long romantic walks-type you can go on the Cala Saona‘s beach where walking hand in hand for 20omt you will reach the cliff of Punta Rasa that will offer you a beautiful view of the island of Ibiza.

Would you like to be the next castaway-guy? If that is your secret desire Formentera will fulfill your dreams with the island of Esplanada, an uninhabited island connected to Formentera by a shallow sandbar and during the low tide it’s possible to swim from an island to another or if you’re too tired for the sleepless nights spent dancing and drinking you can reach the island by boat.

For getting to these places you can rent a moped (a very popular choice, indeed) or being the strange guy who rents a car (the oldest are the cheepest) or improvising yourself a nature lover hippy and rent a bike.

Don’t worry for the accomodation part, the island offers you wallet-friendly hotels, apartments, rural houses or campings, for the luxury lovers there are fabolous four stars hotels that will satisfy your eyes and your taste.

So, aren’t you already at the airport? Ok, I will try to tempt you with the fresh genuine Formentera’s food and the typical local red wine, the Pagés and the Sangria (red wine with fresh pieces of fruit inside)!

Wouldn’t you like to try the Paella? It’s a seafood and rice based dish, it’s simply delicious! Maybe after you would like to try some of bunyols, fried orange juice based sweets?

Now, get up from that chair and go catch that flight! :-)
