A place to ride bikes and soak up some Mediterranean sun, yet away from the hustle and bustle of sunburnt tourists? Well look no further than Formentera. Its white sandy beaches and crystal blue seas may look like something from the Maldives, but this island paradise is a lot closer than you may think…
Nestled in the Mediterranean sea, next door to the popular island of Ibiza, Formentera is a hidden gem. Known as the ‘last Mediterranean Paradise’, the island has managed to keep a perfect balance between tourism and environmental preservation.
Trails lead the way

Keeping the dream alive
