Formentera is the smaller island of the Pitiusic Islands group, which includes Ibiza, which belong to the larger Balearic Islands in Spain. The island lies around 6 km to the south of the island of Ibiza in the Mediterranean Sea and is roughly 20 km long. The island has an excellent reputation within Europe for its pristine beaches and for the fact that nude sunbathing is permitted on most of its beaches.
The distinctive outline of Formentera is characterised by Cap de Barbaria in the south west, the plateau of La Mola in the east, the rugged western 'Ponent' coast which includes the lovely inlet of Cala Saona and the long peninsular of Es Trocadores reaching out towards S'Espalmador and Ibiza to the north.
Although the island was initially only reached via ferry from Ibiza, tourism has increased over recent years due to ferries now travelling to the island directly from the Spanish mainland. The journey time from Ibiza to Formentera is roughly 30 minutes.
The city of Palma is the capital of the Spanish island of Mallorca and contains the most sites of historical interest of any town located in the Balearic Islands. With a population of roughly 300,000 Palma's past leaders have left their mark on the city with its impressive buildings which includes the beautiful Le Seu Cathedral. The city is characterised by narrow streets, secluded courtyards, a harbour and some fine examples of restored historic buildings and all combine to make the city a wonderful place to explore on foot. The wide avenue that is Passeig d'es Born is the city's main promenade and apart from dissecting the city, this tree lined street contains many shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. The city's walls were constructed on the site of medieval walls and featured galleries that ran along the top, where the strong defence could protect the island from marauders. The walls include a walkway that is popular with both locals and visitors and is where lovely views over the cathedral and old town can be had.
From the city's port, ferries depart to destinations that include Ibiza, Barcelona, Valencia and Denia.
