Beaches of Formentera to visit by charter boat
On the beach of Illetes you can find the best restaurants of Formentera. In fact, our charter customers in Ibiza usually opt for this beach to anchor, take a swim before lunch and disembark for a meal in one of the many restaurants that sit on the white sand of this part of the island.
Another of the most popular beaches of Formentera is Cala Saona. In Cala Saona the waters are so turquoise that it seems that we are in a pool. It is south of the marina of Formentera and fortunately offers a good seabed of very extensive sand to anchor the rental boat in Formentera that you have chosen.
The most extensive beach in Formentera is Migjorn beach. This beach is far from the hustle and bustle of the most popular beaches of Formentera. Because of its location, it is not a good area for anchoring boats and this makes it much less crowded. You can anchor in Cala Saona and then take a 5-10 minute taxi to Migjorn beach.
And, of course, I recommend that you go to see one of the most famous lighthouses in Spain, the Faro de la Mola, and on the way you will see spectacular views of the island with the sea on both sides.
It is 19 kilometers long so I recommend that you lose yourself and enjoy the magic of Formentera.

The island of Formentera
Formentera is the smallest of the sister islands and is also the most expensive island in Spain. Hundreds of tourists choose to rent a boat in Formentera to enjoy its white sandy coves and turquoise waters. The Caribbean beaches have nothing to envy.
Many of the boats that are rented in Ibiza are only to go to Formentera. Many clients are attracted by the gastronomic options offered by restaurants in Formentera. These restaurants, formerly chiringuitos, have been increasing their menu and prices gradually over the years.
Formentera offers two very different faces. On the one hand, we have 6 months of high season with good weather and good sea. An earthly paradise. On the other hand, we have the winter low season in which the island is almost deserted with just over 3,000 permanent inhabitants.
It is rare, but sometimes in winter, with the arrival of storms in the west, the port of Formentera is closed to maritime traffic and the island is completely cut off for a few hours (sometimes days) until the sea transit is restored.
Still, winter sometimes does give us a splendid day of sun and calm sea. Some take that opportunity to sail in one of our models of boat rental in Formentera to enjoy the beaches of Formentera almost as if they were all ours.
Rent a boat in Formentera
The port of La Savina is a small port whose demand has grown exponentially in recent years. Most of the boats are from the residents of the small archipelago. You can rent a boat from Ibiza or from San Antonio. At CharterAlia we offer you rental boats available to visit Formentera from Ibiza or from the port of La Savina.
I do not want to rent a boat in Formentera
Ok, it has happened to me. Many times I have been on a boat in Formentera and wanted to enjoy this smaller sister island in another way.
What is clear is that you have to arrive by boat. The most boring option is the Balearia or Transmapi ferry. The good thing is that these Ferry lines have many schedules and every hour a boat leaves towards Formentera. So do not get stressed if you don´t arrive at the scheduled time. The only thing you do need to be careful with is the return time since at night there are no boats.
The commercial route by boat from Ibiza to Formentera is one of the most profitable in the world during the high season. The number of travelers is very high and the journey is quite short. It is usually done in about 35-40 minutes.
But without a doubt, the best way to visit Formentera, even if you are only interested in exploring it by land, is arriving in one of our catamarans, sailboats, motorboats or yachts for rent in Formentera.
You can embark your own vehicle on the ferry from Ibiza or from the peninsula, or rent one when you arrive to the island at one of the dozens of rent-a-car companies that line the main street next to the port of Formentera. Many people choose the option of renting a motorcycle since it is cheaper. However, due to the large influx of tourists during the months of July and August, it is an increasingly uncomfortable option. As you can see, the best option is to continue along the coast of Formentera in one of our sailboats, catamarans or motorboats that we offer as rental boats in Formentera.
Real case of one of our clients of our boat rental in Formentera
My first year in Formentera… I went by ferry and without a vehicle during the high season. We arrived at the port and the car rental was through the clouds due to the excess demand of the summer dates. We had gone without cards, only with cash, so it was impossible for us to rent a vehicle. Motorcycles were not available, all had already been rented for the day, and I had to rent a bicycle. But the worst thing was that, since we did not carry any cards, we had to leave as proof our identification documents, our watches and 20 euros. With the beaming of the sun and all the luggage we had on us for the day, you have no idea the bad mood you get and think “why did I not opt to rent a boat to go to Formentera? I imagined myself in the charter boat, with my beer in my hand, sitting at the stern, and one foot hanging in the water…
The Experience of not renting boats in Formentera
We arrived at Illetes beach (which is the closest beach to the port and one of the most popular on the island) and there we stayed for the day, because we had already gone through so much. The bike stroll was cool the first 5 minutes. When the tourists with the motorcycles get ahead of you and the cars seem to take you off the road… it loses its acharm. The truth is that we did not catch the bus (which takes you to the beaches and covers the island from one side to the other). And to top it off, we had another 20 euros to eat and I assure you that I never tried a frozen potato tortilla sandwich so bad. It is clear that Formentera is not cheap.
After this experience, I must say that nothing similar happened to me again, but you already know that when you go to a new place everything seems to happen to you. The second time I hired one of the CharterAlia charter boats and everything changed.”
What else to see in Formentera?
The island of Formentera offers wonderful spots. It is an island with a unique charm. It is so beautiful that it is difficult to describe it with words. And then there is also Espalmador.
Espalmador belongs to the natural reserve of Ibiza. It is an islet that has one of the best beaches in Spain. The best way to get to Espalmador is by a rental boat in Formentera. In high season you will not be able to anchor without prior reservation of an ecological buoy. These anchorage buoys were installed in the southern area of Espalmador in 2013 to protect the oceanic posidonea.
