Visiting Formentera without a car: everything you need to know

Planning a getaway to the smallest of the Pitiusa Islands? The best way to enjoy this island is undoubtedly from the sea, so forget about driving! Here we tell you everything you need to know about exploring Formentera car-free. Enjoy a unique experience!

An ideal destination for sailing

Although many people rent a car on their arrival in Formentera, you should know that this is not always possible, as the island’s capacity for vehicles is limited and, during the summer season, it is sometimes difficult to do so. For this reason, and because we know first-hand that Formentera is best enjoyed from the sea, our recommendation is to charter a boat to tour the island. This option will allow you to wake up every morning in a different area, anchor in truly idyllic coves, and visit places that would otherwise be completely impossible to see.

Motorbike, bike or taxi to get around the island

When you want to return to dry land to discover the interior of the island, you have several options for getting around. Renting a motorbike or a bicycle is a good way to explore the island - you'll enjoy it in a different way! But if you want to go out for dinner and enjoy a good wine or cocktails without worrying, a good option involves calling Formentera's taxi service to get around the island.

Life on board

Needless to say, if you've decided to travel to Formentera without a car, and you're thinking of chartering a boat, life on board will be a big part of the experience. Enjoying the pleasure of sailing, relaxing, sunbathing, taking a dip in the sea, lunching and dining on board, watching the sunset or contemplating the stars at night... touring the island by boat is a real luxury. What's more, if you want to make the most of your experience on board, you take advantage of the on-board food delivery service offered by many of the island's beach bars and restaurants.

Water toys and entertainment

Another great advantage of renting a boat in Formentera is the possibility of including aquatic entertainment such as paddle surfboards and sea bobs. Not forgetting of course snorkelling equipment so you won't miss out on anything that's going on underwater.

If there is one word that can describe the experience of travelling to Formentera by boat, it’s "freedom". Crossing to the neighbouring island of Ibiza for dinner, disembarking on the idyllic beach of Es Palmador or anchoring in secluded, semi-hidden coves – enjoy Formentera at your leisure!
