Formentera is the smaller and more southerly of the Balearic Islands of Spain.
With a population of only seven thousand and no airport, Formentera is usually quieter than its sister island Ibiza, though like most Mediterranean islands, large amounts of visitors arrive during the peak season of July and August.
Formentera is known for its pristine white sand beaches and crystal clear water, and is perfect for those looking for a relaxing break of sun and sand.
In terms of travelling from Formentera by ferry, Ibiza, just six kilometres to the north is where the majority of ferries travel to with sailings running year round and up to every thirty minutes during peak times.
You can however also sail to mainland Spain, port of Denia which takes around three hours. The Formentera Denia crossing is seasonal and general runs between May and October. For those who want to travel to mainland Spain out of season you can pick up a connection from Ibiza.
The heart and soul of the Balearics, Mallorca is the largest island of the archipelago, sitting just off the east coast of Spain.
As islands go, Mallorca is a Mediterranean maestro, offering all that makes this part of Europe so enticing: mouth-watering cuisine, photogenic beaches and one of the most pleasant climates on the continent.
Mallorca’s trump card, however, is the 550 kilometre coastline carving through the Balearic Sea, providing year-round fun for hikers, cyclists and tanning lovers alike. You’ll also find superb seafront restaurants around every corner and the capital, Palma, nestling in the namesake bay on the southwest coast. The relatively small city is known for its art galleries, lively bars and imposing Gothic cathedral, leading most to proclaim it as the most underrated city in Spain.
As one of the most visited regions in Europe, the Balearics boast an impressive connection of ferry routes. Reaching Mallorca is particularly easy, with multiple sailings everyday from both the mainland and neighbouring islands.
