Formentera - Balearic Islands, Spain

This is the smallest of the Balearic Islands of Spain and is accessible via a ferry from its busier and noisier neighbour, Ibiza. Often used as a daytrip destination, Formentera has its own charms, with beautiful stretches of clean sand and clear turquoise waters, often backed by pine trees and dunes. Watersports, including sailing and snorkelling, are popular on Formentera and there are a number of excellent hotels and other holiday properties to stay at.
