Formentera Yacht Charters
The smallest of the Balearic Islands, the 20-kilometer-long Formentera is visited for its natural beauty, ravishing coasts, turquoise-blue waters, laid back vibe, and tourist-free streets. Only 30 minutes from the bustling island of Ibiza, Formentera is where relaxed yacht charter guests go to eat, sleep, bask in the Mediterranean sun and do anything but stress.
Formentera has attracted and inspired many artists, authors, and songwriters; Joni Mitchell wrote her album “Blue” here, and Bob Dylan once lived in the Cap de Barbaria lighthouse. The island is known as the last Mediterranean paradise because it has been able to combine tourism with environmental protection. The conservation efforts of the islanders has preserved the integrity of the beaches, surrounding waters, and the underwater wonders that were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999.

One of the most photographed spots on Formentera, it has a dry, desolate, moon-like landscape that leads to a lonely lighthouse at the end of a road. This is the lighthouse where Nobel prize winner Bob Dylan once lived. Just south is the Sa Cova Foradada, a famous cave that sits 100 meters above the sea.
