Formentera: What to see

Already before you arrive to the port you will see the wonderful beaches Photo. Formentera is the only town-hall of the island, but there are several villages:

La Savina, with the only port, and those typical white-washed houses.

Las Salinas, (Ses Salines) Photo at the narrowest part of the island, offers landscapes of unique beauty.

In the interior there is San Francisco Javier, (Sant Fracesc Xavier), a concentration of white houses around a fortificated church.

San Fernando, (Sant Ferran de Ses Roques) is located in the midst of large pine woods which end at the beach of Es Pujols Photo in the North and at the beach of Mitjorn Photo in the South. Other recommendable beaches are En Baster Photo Ca'n Xico Mateu, Playa de Tramuntana and the impressive natural port of Es Caló

The road to La Mola (El Pilar de la Mola), located at the very South-East of the island, leads us up to 193 meters above sea level. From the view-point El Mirador you may enjoy an outstanding panorama. In the village itsself you may visit the beautiful church Iglesia del Pilar.

Formentera's western part offers untouched nature. The perhaps most beautiful beach is Cala Saona Photo
