The beaches and coves of this Balearic Island, with their fine white sand and unique turquoise sea, are the perfect place to switch off completely. These coastal landscapes are dotted with little villages, natural harbours, and picturesque lighthouses, such as La Mola or Cap de Barbaria. Inland the scenery is enchanting - lakes, salt pans, caves, and woods of junipers and pines. Visitors will also find three historic villages: Sant Francesc Xavier, Sant Ferran de ses Roques, and El Pilar de la Mola. If you are looking for an active holiday, you can take an excursion to Les Salines Natural Park, go scuba diving or kayaking, ride a horse, or explore over 30 natural hiking routes and cycle tracks on the island. Shopping options are good too, with traditional craft markets in La Mola and Sant Ferran. The traditional local cuisine includes products which have become well-known outside Formentera, such as Peix sec (dried fish), liquid salt, curd cheese, and herbal liqueur.
