Yacht Charters in Formentera
Formentera is one of the most beautiful and un-spoilt islands in Europe, if not the world. Is 19 km long and is located about 3 nautical miles (6 km) south of Ibiza. This Mediterranean paradise is flat and sandy with a few places where the land rises to present spectacular cliffs to the sea. The crystal transparent waters and clean white sand beaches attract yacht owners and charter guests from all over the world and our clients often describe this incredible little island as “like the Caribbean, but better!”
Cala Saona is a gorgeous pristine beach located on the West cost of Formentera. Crystal white sand beach lies inside a deep horseshoe-shaped bay and is surrounded by cliffs of red rock providing unforgettable view from the deck of your yacht. The transparent turquoise waters and the sand bottom make anchoring attractive and easy so the bay can get quite busy, with many boats competing for space in front of Cala Saona. In late afternoon, the sun picks out the rich red colors and textures of the surrounding cliffs and caves where you can snorkel to the rocks or just sit back and admire the breathtaking beauty of it all.
Es Palmador is a small island just to the North of Formentera and the only way to get to this magical island is by yacht. A sand bar connects the two islands and it is possible to walk through knee deep water from one island to the other across the gap between the islands is known as “Es Pas”. Thanks to offshore coral reefs, the white-sanded beach has warm pink hue at the waterline and colorful fish inhabit sea grass beds of the bay. Es Palmador is famous for its mud baths and it is not uncommon to see people wandering the beaches wearing nothing more than a thin layer of the famous mud that is said to be great for the skin. The idea is to leave the mud on for as long as you can and then go for a swim in the sea to wash it off before returning to your yacht.
