EXCURSION: FROM IBIZA TO FORMENTERA IN CATAMARAN
Enjoy an exclusive sailing day to discover the crystal clear waters of the two most paradisiacal islands of the Mediterranean, Formentera and Espalmador.
Enjoy the feeling of sailing in Ibiza on board the Hedonist Ibiza Catamaran catamaran. Visit and anchor in the incredible beaches of the island of Espalmador, an ideal unique place that can only be accessed by boat.
It lies in the heart of the natural park of Ses Illetes, an authentic paradise of turquoise waters and white sands. This beach is recognized as one of the 10 best beaches in the Mediterranean. It is so beautiful that even the Caribbeans want to come and meet you.
THE ISLAND OF ESPALMADOR
Catamaran sailing to Espalmador takes approximately 40 minutes. During the trip you can relax listening to music, take something fresh or relax by lying on deck, spending time listening to the sound of Ibiza waters below you.
Fondear in Espalmador is highly recommended. It is a small private island, wild and uninhabited, in which there are only two small constructions. It is a true paradise of crystalline waters and with a fine white sand with a characteristic rosy color of coral remains that has remained virgin thanks to its isolation.
In the center of Espalmador there is a bay of calm waters, which since ancient times has been used as a natural port and zone of beached. In the interior there are beautiful fields of dunes and pines and sabinas. It is an idyllic place to take a leisurely stroll, where you can get close to the watchtower, from where you have breathtaking views of Ibiza, Formentera and Es Vedra. A real spectacle of nature.
MANDATORY STOP: THE SPOOFER’S BATHROOMS
One of the delights of this excursion to Formentera are the mud baths in Espalmador, and also a lot of fun. Right in the center of this small island there is a space for the popular natural mud baths. From the north end of Platja de s’Alga, a winding road leads through pine groves and some palm trees leading to a saline esplanade.
Inside, people have made small natural mud baths, where you can enjoy the experience of floating in the mud. The process is simple, remove the bottom a little so that the mud is mixed with saline water, until it acquires a liquid consistency, and it only remains to get inside and smeared to the ears.
Although it has no recognized therapeutic benefits, on a sunny day there is nothing more beneficial than rolling and smearing of cool clay. Let dry yourself while you walk back to the beach and when it is very dry you have to remove it rubbing, to perform a natural peeling. Finally put in the water to get well clean and you will see how soft the skin stays. A different experience that delights children.
ILLETAS: PARADISE IS HERE
The catamaran excursion can continue on the way to Formentera, to the beaches of ses Illetes the paradise of the Mediterranean. Ses Illetes is a group of small islands, which have been linked together by a narrow tongue of sand, creating small coves. In Illetes there is sea on both sides, its waters are crystalline and the white sands with tiny pink tones, fruit of the erosion of the corals.
The sea is full of meadows of poseidonea, an aquatic plant that makes the water so clean. The bottom decreases very slowly and you can enter the sea without fear as it is always calm, if not on the west side, on the east side. The beaches of Illetas are a quiet place as access if not on board a boat or catamaran is complicated. People practice nudism naturally.
In Illetas we find the best bars of Formentera, emblematic places like Es Ministre, Juan and Andrea, El Molí de la Sal, Beso Beach or El Tiburón, where we can go down to eat a good rice and taste a sangria or a mojito. All have good service and if you want you can bring the paella to eat on the catamaran. If you doubt a mandatory stop on this catamaran excursion to Formentera.
We recommend that you return to Ibiza in the afternoon. From our catamaran we will approach the beach of the Salinas while the sun sets on the horizon. An excursion from Ibiza to Formentera on a catamaran is a unique and unforgettable plan.
