Formentera is automatically associated with summer. It is easy to picture yourself enjoying your summer holidays sunbathing on white sand beaches and turquoise waters, diving in crystal clear waters or strolling through picturesque villages at dusk. We want to show you a different and very special Formentera, to enjoy during autumn, winter and spring.
Travelling and the way we travel is changing because the world is changing. That is why we want to encourage you to visit our island at other times of the year. Each season has its pros and cons, like everything in life, but if you are passionate about travel, you don’t like going to crowded places (especially now, in these times) and you want to get the most out of your holidays, this post is for you!
Formentera in autumn and spring
You can enjoy the beach, the days are warm, even hot, the sea temperature is perfect for swimming or doing water activities such as scuba diving or snorkelling. They are the perfect seasons if you like hiking, cycling or outdoor sports. Formentera has 32 green routes to choose from.
Formentera in winter
The island at its purest. Although it is true that you might find it more difficult to find open accommodation and restaurants, you will get to experience a very real Formentera. You will be able to discover those places only residents enjoy and practice the art of ‘wherever you go, do what you see’.
You will discover that Formentera is even more charming with empty roads, silent streets, the sea breeze and a cold turquoise color that will make you fall in love.
In any of the three seasons the island is very peaceful, the services you hire will be cheaper. You’ll be able to enjoy any beach, village or places of interest, all to yourself, without traffic and with plenty of parking space!
We have over 300 days of sunshine a year so don’t forget your swimsuit since any day, even in winter, the heat can surprise you and you won’t be able to resist taking a good swim, although it is always a good idea to have a towel handy, to dry yourself up as soon as you get out of the water, the breeze blows sharp most of the year.
