The best bit about sailing around Formentera

If you enjoy spending time at sea, snorkelling, paddle surfing, seabobbing or any type of water sports, Formentera will be a genuine paradise for you. While sailing around Formentera, you’ll get to some of the most beautiful beaches you’ve ever seen, such as Caló des Morts or Caló de San Agustí (if you’re looking for peace and relaxation).

If you’re after dinner and cocktails, we’d recommend you visit some of the island’s small towns, such as San Francesc, San Ferrán or Es Pujols.

Distance between Ibiza and Formentera

If you draw a straight line from the Torre de Ses Ports (the most southern point in Ibiza) to Es Trucadors (the far north of the island of Formentera), the distance is 7km. The time you’ll need to cover this distance depends on the type of boat you choose (anything from just 30 minutes to a few hours if your sailing, as it depends on the wind).
