Formentera is a paradise island and also the sailor’s paradise. The island is not only a holiday destination sun, beach and sand lovers, but also a great destination for sailing and kayaking lovers. Sailing and boating is also one of the best things to do in Formentera.


The 69 km of beautiful coasts of Formentera and its location to the south of the island of Ibiza make the island a dream place to enjoy sailing in Formentera.

Formentera offers great opportunities for family cruising and for beginners in the summer and for expert sailors in the winter. The island also offers just as good conditions for practice as for the technical perfection of sailing.
