#8 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.

  • Caribbean waters, beaches uncrowded and quiet. You can reach the island easily from the port of la Savina or Illetes with boat Bahia at the price of €22.50 return. Not to be missed!

  • One I recommend is the one with the catamaran around the island of Formentera with stop for lunch at the small island of Espalmador. You can do it even sludge and then tossed in the sea.
