Formentera is the smallest of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea, known for its clear waters and long stretches of beaches.
We Bet You Didn’t Know…
- Formentera is the smallest and most southerly of the Balearic Islands
- Up to the 1980’s, salt was the main product of Formentera
- Formentera doesn’t have an airport and this helps to keep the island fairly exclusive
- The island is very arid and mainly covered in rosemary, which grows wild everywhere
- Between 1348 and 1697 Formentera was left uninhabited for fear of pirate raids!
