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 Spanish island of Ibiza lies in the Mediterranean Sea and is located to the east of the Iberian Peninsular and is one of the Balearic Islands. The island's land area is just over 570 sq. km and along with the neighbouring island of Formentera was called the island of the pines by the Greeks. Ibiza Town, the largest town on the island, was first settled by the Phoenicians and still has walls surrounding it that were built in the 16th century to prevent attack by Turkish pirates.
Today, the town is characterized by narrow cobbled streets, medieval mansions and a cathedral which is located close to the castle. the island is popular with scuba divers who are attracted to the island's warm, clear waters. The sea bed in the Las Salinas National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, because of the ecological importance of the sea grass that grows there.
