How to travel around Formentera

Cycling is the easiest and quickest was to get around the island's mostly gentle terrain. Visitors staying in La Savina, Es Pujols, Sant Francesc and Saint Ferran can make use of a handy tool for exploring this busy northern corner of the island more efficiently by bike: the Metrominut Formentera map includes route details and timings for eight different cycle trails around the region, including towns, beaches and sites of interest; the longest section takes just 23 minutes. There's also 'green routes' – a network of 32 signposted walking, running and cycling trails criss-crossing the island, each route can be followed independently or linked together to form a longer excursion. Moto Rent Pujols rents out touring bikes, mountain bikes, e-bikes and Askoll electric scooters.


You can also venture into the island's hinterlands on horseback. Local, family-owned riding operator, Rutas Es Boixets, takes pride in seeking out the island’s quieter, most scenic paths for visitors. From private lessons for complete beginners to gentle one-hour excursions through pine and juniper forests or 2.5-hour dawn treks for more experienced riders that include the chance to ride horses along the surf.


The network of public buses are convenient for the longer journeys or the few climbs, such as up to La Mola. For timetables, see busformentera.com.


There are three car hire companies on the island that rent out electric cars. Europcar is in Puerto de la Savina, while Cooltra and Esformentera.com are both in the Port of La Savina.
