Day Trip To Formentera
Spend a day in paradise in this day trip by ferry to the island of Formentera. This beautiful island is just two miles to the south of Ibiza but it is a world away from the hustle and bustle of its bigger brasher sister. It's also a paradise for sunworshippers with some of the best beaches in the Med. Catch a modern ferry from the port of Ibiza across to La Sabina, Formentera's sleepy capital and return whenever you feel like - there are plenty of crossings to choose from. Formentera is the smallest inhabited island in the Balearics. You'll find dazzlingly whitewashed sugar cube houses, unspoilt sandy beaches and unbelievably crystal clear waters. The whole island seems virtually untouched by the modern world - you'll find few cars and no high rise buildings. It is like travelling back in time to the Mediterranean that existed before mass tourism. Return back to Ibiza for overnight stay.
Day 9: Departure From Ibiza
Today morning, check-out from your hotel. You will be transferred to the airport to catch your return flight.
