Discovering the typical villages of Formentera-Part 1
Although being a small island, Formentera offers a wide variety of places to appreciate. Many villages have become completely or partially pedestrianized islands, thus creating a quiet and harmonious atmosphere, particularly welcoming for families. Traditional squares with the church, outdoor cafés and classic Mediterranean architecture create a magnificent backdrop for the life of the village.
Es Calo is a small fishing village perched at the foot of La Mola, around a port that dates back to Roman times, surrounded by characteristic cabins for boats.
There are a few shops, restaurants and a delightful bar restaurant on the marina from which you can enjoy the amazing colours of the sea and spectacular sunsets.
Es Calò offers bike, motorbike and car rental, currency exchange, ATM and shops. Nearby the pine forests, the lovely Es Calò beach and a quiet and familiar atmosphere make this a very pleasant place to stay.
The most animated village of Formentera is located on a large heart-shaped bay, protected by a strip of rocks that provide calm waters on the long sandy beach.
A wide choice of food can be enjoyed in the many restaurants in the village and in the cafes and bars on the waterfront, from where you can watch local artisans selling their items at the evening market.
The coastline of Migjorn is a succession of creeks and beaches, all enchanting, separated by rocks.
Walking along this beach is magical with an immense variety of bays and dunes to explore and breathtaking views of the sea and the bays of Es Cap and La Mola.
The beaches are named after the geography of this part of the island or the chiringuitos (beach kiosks) and the restaurants that are along the coast from Torrent de s’Alga, passing Es Codol Foradat to Es Arenals and Calò des Mort.
Savina, the port of Formentera, is an area of great historical importance for the Mediterranean and still retains its unique character of fishing harbour combined with a modern and attractive navy.
Stretched around the marina there are traditional cafes, bars, restaurants and stalls selling local handicrafts. There is also a wide range of services, boat rentals, bicycles and cars, taxis and boutiques.
The beaches of Illetes and Levant are easily reached from La Savina along the old disused railway line that carried salt from the salt pans to the port for export. Now it is a path to walk or bike along the coast to the beach stretching to the tip of the peninsula towards the islet of Espalmador.
