4.8
#9 of 33 in Outdoors in Formentera
S'Espalmador is a small, privately owned, uninhabited island located in the Balearic Islands. It is just to the north of Formentera, from which it is separated by a shallow sandbar. During low tide, it is possible to wade between the two islands. The area is visited by canoeists and yachts heading between Ibiza and Formentera. The island has pristine beaches, freshwater springs and a mud-bath.To the north of the main island is Illa des Porcs (Pig Island) which was once used as a hideout and stronghold for pig smugglers. The En Pou lighthouse was built on the island in 1861 to mark the southern side of the Es Freus strait between the island and Ibiza.

  • deserves a full day. more quiet than in Formentera. Bella just like Beach and the sea but also by turn, armed with CAP, I recommend and lots of sunscreen.

  • I reached Espalmador with a very fast dinghy doing other stages in various bays. I must say that this beach is beautiful with small dunes to climb and ... white sand and clear sea and fable

  • Island only accessible by boat, without access by land. Few people and very nice. Precious water. A small line of land access to Formentera, but only with the calm sea. Not look bar. For me, that I don't like the beach, very good choice too.
