Point of view – you have rented an impressive, sumptuous boat from Ibiza Access for the day and you have decided to explore the glorious island of Formentera for the first time… Where do you start? Thankfully, our years of experience in Ibiza mean we have been lucky enough to visit Formentera by boat and yacht to try all the Hotspots for you so you can lay back, relax and focus on making the most of the trip!
The journey over to Formentera from Ibiza by boat will take around 45 minutes to one hour, and your competent skipper will know the best routes for you and your guests to soak in the magnificently clear blue waters as your travels begin. The happy port of La Savina in the North of the island has a colorful array of typical tourist shops, but the main attraction is the beautiful white sandy beach of Playa de ses Illetes. Here you will find our first port of call – the unmissable El Pirata, a charming wooden kiosk within a natural park just waiting for you! Your captain just needs to anchor up, and the competent team will come to pick you up and take you across the turquoise waters for a delicious meal within a vibrant atmosphere at any time of day. They even offer takeaway if you prefer to enjoy a snack from your boat.
Playa de Ses Illetes
A classic option in Playa Illetes is Juan y Andrea, founded in 1971 as a tiny beach restaurant started by a local fisherman and his wife. You can’t deny that this is the true taste of Formentera, Mediterranean flavors coming from a kitchen still run by the same family, amongst the original palm trees on the sand. Of course they also offer a tender from your opulent vessel, just ask your officer to contact channel 74.

At the southern end of Ses Illetes, as you reach the sparkling sands of Playa de Levant, you will find Es Moli de Sal. Situated within an old salt mill with views across the salt flats and the crystal clear waters. Open every day, you can experience fresh seafood of course, and Mediterranean food full of vivid flavors. This is the perfect sport to catch a sunset – They have a chill out zone looking out where you can enjoy a wide variety of delicious drinks.
Es Molí de Sal
Beso Beach is close by in the natural park of Ses Salines, under a charming thatched roof. This is where you will find a heady ambience and can frequently rub shoulders with the stars as you eat your fabulous paella. This is your place to party with daily rotating Dj’s playing Balearic beats and a constant flow of refreshing cava sangria. An idyllic venue with an abundance of good vibes to dance and enjoy with your friends.
If parties and events are your style then you cannot miss Chezz Gerdi and their impressive array of entertainment. Daily live music, Saxophone players, jazz festivals, Flower Power parties, Dj’s on rotation and even evening horseback shows throughout the summer, this iconic venue with the hippy bus is just waiting for you! The menu is creative, the staff professional. This is a sensational spot that you must not miss. Effortlessly transforming from day to night, they have a docking point for easy access from your boat or yacht in Formentera.
On the West side of the island you have Cala Saona, an unbelievable bay that looks like it is straight out of a movie. Less tourists means an exclusive look at this unforgettable haven, an exclusive white sand beach nestled amongst the cliffs. If you have time for a stop then let your captain know!
Last, but not least we feature Es Caló Restaurant. The seafood here is like no other, and the cheesecake to die for! Away from the tourist packs and a decadent delight for the tastebuds, if you prefer to escape the madding crowds and enjoy a quieter extravagance, here is your home for the afternoon.
