It is known as the last paradise of the Mediterranean for having managed to combine tourism with environmental protection.
You can only reach Formentera by boat from Ibiza. This inaccessibility makes it a quiet place to escape the stress and overcrowding. You can enjoy the island go cycling or swimming in its 20 miles of white sand and infinitely transparent water.
The secret of the existence of a crystalline sea and the long beaches of Formentera that differ from the rest of the Mediterranean, is the grass meadow surrounding the island, a natural purifier that cleans the water and allows the deposition of sand in the coast. A real underwater jungle was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999.
The tourist success of the island, loved by both residents and visitors, is that people still find something different in Formentera. The difference is marked by respect for nature, the survival of their culture and vision of achieving exclusivity through protecting the environment.
