    Cruise from San Antoni to Formentera

    Cruise to Island of Formentera, Spain
    4 more images

    I was at staying at San Antoni and on going to the port of the city. I looked for the boat which left for Formentera. I had only a day to do this and I did not want to go to a nearby island and wanted to ride the whole 2 hours to the island.

    I found the booth of Cruceros Portamany, SA and they do have daily cruises which leave at 1030 and return at 1700. I took that one – paying 30 Euros for the cruise roundtrip. The booth opened at about 1000 AMI think and promptly left at 1030 AM and the ride was nice and relaxing and I enjoyed crusing down the coast, seeing the nice island/rock formations and looking down at lots of big yellowish jellyfish that we pass by.

    Formentera's airport is on Ibiza

    by Bernd_L Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Ibiza-town - stopover on your way to Formentera

    As Formentera is a very small island, an own airport isn't a possibility. So most of the visitors fly into Ibiza and go on by ferry.

    Ibiza's airport has connections to a lot of european cities especially during the summer months. So it should not be a problem to get a flight.

    But do carefully plan your itinerary. If you arrive late in the evening the last ferry to Formentera might be already gone and then you'll have to spend a night at a hotel on Ibiza. It's the same if your return flight leaves Ibiza too early in the morning.

    After arrival go outside the hall and you'll find a busstop of the local buses. They go frequently to the port of Ibiza and stop next to the ferry. The fare is only 1,30 Euro (Sept. 06) and therefore much cheaper than taking a taxi. The bus needs about 20 - 30 minutes to the port (depending on traffic).

    Go for scooters!

    by BurgerQueen Written Apr 23, 2008
    Streets leading to the beaches

    Motorscooters are the best way to move around on the island. Formentera is pretty small, and most of the streets leading to the beaches are narrow and not asphalted. I've seen a couple of times cars stuck in the sandy roads on their way to the beach!
    Also, it is very difficult to park, both in the villages and close to the beach, but you will always find a place for a scooter!
    Renting a scooter in August is very expensive (about 25€ a day), but I know that rates are much more affordable in other months.

    High speed ferry in Ibiza
    1 more image

    There is no airport on the island, which can thus only be reached from the sea.
    The easiest way to arrive in Formentera is to fly to Ibiza, and then take a ferry from there.
    There are frequent bus connections between the airport and the port (for the price of about 2€) and ferries leave Ibiza almost every 30 minutes. The crossing lasts about 45 minutes with high-speed ferries (which are very comfortable).
    I don't remember the ticket price, but must be about 30€ for a one-way ticket.
    Once in Formentera, buses and taxis will be waiting for you at the port, but if you are visiting the island in August, it can be difficult to find a way to reach your hotel/house because of the crowd...

    Scooters, scooters, scooters ...

    by Bernd_L Written Sep 15, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The distances on Formentera are not very long. You can reach any point on the island within half an hour if you are motorized. But parking lots are limited. So many of the visitors use scooters for their daily way to the beaches.

    In the main touristic town of Es Pujols and in La Savina (the port of Formentera) you'll find rental stations at every corner.

    But be careful with these vehicels. As most of the vacationers drive these scooters carelessly and with beachwear, accidents often lead to severe injuries.

    Ferry from Ibiza to Formentera

    by Bernd_L Updated Sep 15, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ferry Ibiza - Formentera

    There is a regular ferry service between Ibiza and Formentera. The journey is a perfect start into your vacation because you have a splendid view of the picturesque old town and the marina of Ibiza when leaving the harbor.

    Depending on the boat (express or normal) they need about 25 to 35 minutes for the trip. The costs per person are about 14 - 17 Euro (Sept. 06).

    When we went over for the first time, the sea was a bit rough. So if you tend to get seasick easily, get some medicaments against it.

    For schedules see the website below.

    Exploring Formentera

    by valec Updated Feb 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are three ways you can go around Formentera:

    BIKE: I think renting a bike is one of the best ways to explore this island, it is cheap (6 euros for one day) and you'll be able to find all the small beaches not belonging to the traditional tourist routes.

    MOTORBIKE: this is a good way to go around Formentera,too. It will cost you a little more but it will be faster, it's perfect if you mean to travel all over the island.

    CAR: I don't think renting a car is a good idea in Formentera...the island's not so big and there are many streets reserved for bike and motorcycles!

    ---you'll be able to rent the means of transportation at Formentera harbor, there are many bike/motorbike and car rentals,so don't worry about that!

    The island for two wheels

    by AlexDJ Updated Jan 3, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Formentera has little more than 19 kilometres of roads and covers only 82 km2. A regular bus service takes in the main towns on the island.
    Formentera is also perfect for using a bike or scooter to get the white-sanded beaches.
    Formentera is the island of bicycles. Peaceful, calm, small and enchanting, very few visitors can resist the temptation to cover it on bike. A whole fleet of rental bikes (twice as many as the island has inhabitants) is waiting for you.
    For many visitors to Formentera, the bicycle is their only form of transport during their stay on the island. Besides the network of dedicated cycle lanes on the main roads, there is also the greenway, which covers the principal areas of natural beauty on the island practically without having to touch any asphalt. The old network of rural tracks, which criss-crosses the heart of the island, has found a new role, benefiting from clear new signalling.
    But if you are planning to going out to live thee night, you'd be better take a scooter, wich is faster and more visible in the dark.

    How to get to Formentera

    by AlexDJ Written Jan 3, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Port La savina of Formentera

    Obviously, since Formentera does not have an airport, the only way to reach there is by sea. Formentera is connected to Ibiza and to the mainland by boat. The usual way to reach Formentera is to fly to Ibiza or to take a boat from the mainland and then to take a boat, from the port, that goes to Formentera. Various airlines have international flights that connect Ibiza with important European cities. Once you have arrived in Ibiza, you only have an enjoyable boat ride of 30 minutes (or an hour, depending on which type of boat you choose) until you arrive in Formentera.

    Ferries from Ibiza

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Formentera can be reached only by boat, because the nearest airport is in Ibiza. Every day you'll be able to find ferries from Ibiza to Formentera (and from Formentera to Ibiza, of course), and it will take you only half an hour to get there.
    The price will be about 15 euros.

    Bicycles in La Savina

    Formentera is only small, and for the most part, flat, making it ideal for touring by bike. You can reach anywhere on the island in a day. We were lazy and hired scooters (one of the funniest things I've seen, my parents looking evil with crash helmets on...they didn't really get on with their scooter, and after crashing into a gorse bush more times than anticipated, decided to trade it in for a car!), but if I ever return to Formentera, I would prefer to pedal my way round slowly. As the tourist office puts it, "the bicycle enables one peacefully to visit rare spots which would otherwise pass unseen, without contaminating them"...

    The Formentera Ferry

    The only way to reach Formentera is by boat from Ibiza. The journey is short but pleasant, with good views of Ibiza Town and the island of Espalmador before arriving in La Savina. It only takes about an hour and can get rough...as for cost, I have no idea as it was part of our package.
