Hire a boat: one of the main things you need to know in order to organise your trip to Formentera is how to get around the island. One of the best ideas for Formentera is to hire a boat and sail around its coastline. This will enable you to discover some “hidden-away” spots that can’t be accessed in any other way. Hiring a motor boat or sailing vessel is a great idea, not only because it will give you total freedom in terms of moving around the island but also because it will serve as your “base camp”, with all the convenience involved in taking your accommodation with you, to spend the night where you please, dine in your favourite coves... and of course save the expense of a hotel.
Hire a motorbike: if you fancy exploring the island’s picturesque interior, a wonderful alternative is to hire a motorbike. This will enable you to tour around Formentera, stopping off as you go and, above all, savouring its charms at their most authentic. Bicycle and motorbike hire are available at the port of La Savina.
