Formentera is an arid and some what bleached island with a rugged coastline. It’s striking beaches and amazing waters has always attracted settlers from the Phoenicians (who settled on Ibiza in 654 BC) the Romans and Berbers who all took such a liking to the island that they setup homes on Ibiza’s little sister island. A 30 minute boat ride and narrow strait of water separates the island of Formentera from Ibiza’s southern coastline. Home to a number of pristine beaches many are considered ‘naturist beaches’ as the island allows nude sunbathing and swimming. The island is a favorite destination for the rich and famous who stop by on their yachts and sailboats whilst cruising in the area.
