32 green circuits are not accessible to cars or motorcycles, for a total of 110 kilometers to travel by bicycle
For those who choose to spend a holiday in Formentera, arriving on the Balearic island means going in search of a slow holiday.
In addition to the wonderful beaches that the island offers, some of which recall those of the distant Caribbean, on which to relax, Formentera offers several routes to discover the hinterland on foot and by bike.
There are 32 cycle paths on the island, the so-called rutes verdes, green circuits not accessible to cars or motorcycles, in contact with nature, without ever losing sight of the sea, often called the Caribbean of the Mediterranean.
The circuits, intercommunicating paths that form a total of 110 kilometers of route, allow you to visit the island from an unusual point of view and to know a more natural Formentera.
The 32 green circuits have various levels of difficulty and distances. Through pinewoods, juniper woods, cultivated fields and pastures, you can admire freshwater lakes and the famous salt pans of the Parque Natural de Ses Salines, along rows of wall pagés typical of the Balearics, mills and lookout towers, to then discover the breathtaking landscape of the coast, between fishing villages, dunes, wild beaches, cliffs and islets in the distance.
Some circuits start directly from the beach, like La Savina - Ses Illetes that runs along the island and touches some of the most picturesque coves. Others depart from the center of the island and climb the heights from where you can enjoy incredible views, such as the Rue Can Marroig - Punta de la Gavina. Others pass through historic sites and buildings, such as the San Francesc - Portossalé circuit, which allows visitors to visit the typical mills, including Moli de En Jeroni.
