Ibiza is an island in the Mediterranean Sea, off the East coast of Spain.
Ibiza is a popular tourist destination, especially due to its legendary nightlife centred around Ibiza town.
Apart from its nightlife, Ibiza is actually an island of rustic beauty with many UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The island’s government is now trying to encourage a more cultured and quieter tourism scene by passing rules to regulate nightclubs and hotels.
Formentera is the smallest and quietest of the four main Balearic Islands (Ibiza, Menorca and Mallorca), off the east coast of Spain, about 6km south of Ibiza.
With its white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, Formentera is beach lover’s paradise. The climate is typically Mediterranean which means it’s a popular tourist destination between June and September, though less busy and a more relaxed than neighbouring Ibiza.
With no commercial airport on the island, the only way to Formentera is by ferry, either from Ibiza or mainland Spain.
Ibiza is close by and provides year round crossings to La Savina port in the north of Formentera. In peak season, crossings are as frequent as every 30 minutes and are operated by both Balearia and Trasmapi.
If you're travelling from mainland Spain to Formentera, then the best option is to take the direct route from Denia. The crossing is relatively short at around 3 hours and runs between April and September. The alternative option is to travel from the mainland to Ibiza from Barcelona, Valencia or Denia and then pick of the inter-island connection between Ibiza and Formentera.
