With its 83.2 km2, Formentera is the smallest of the Balearic Islands. In the summer months, this island of small dimensions multiplies its population exponentially.
The number of residents increases, whether workers or vacationers who enjoy their second home on the island. And of course, the number of tourists also increases when they come to visit, for a few days or weeks, or on a one-way express trip from its neighbour island, Ibiza.
That is why if you have already planned a visit to Formentera for this summer, start booking in advance as much as you can. The accommodation, of course, but also other concepts such as your means of transport on the island, and even a table if you want to visit one of its best-known restaurants.
In addition, many accommodations and transport companies make offers for these advanced reservations. So as well as securing the room, your place on the ferry or transport on the island, you can save a few euros.
