The expanse of water between Ibiza and Formentera, part of ses Salinas National Park, is a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its prairies of Posidonia, or “seaweed fields.” These underwater plants are incredibly important to the island’s ecosystem, since they act as filters for pollution and sediment while allowing the finest of sands to deposit along Formentera’s shore. This is why the water is so incredibly clear and beautiful.
History and underwater adventures sure are the perfect ingredients for a romantic honeymoon and if you want the best of both worlds you can take a popular day-trip destination in the summertime, it’s reachable by ferry from its more crowded, better known island neighbor, Ibiza.

More reasons to visit Formentera- It’s natural beauty is just breathtaking! From its transparent volcanic shores; richly golden fields of grain to towering shady forests of pine, and vastly diverse array of scenery is absolutely stunning! Although most of the island is flat, a considerable exception is the road to La Mola Lighthouse on the easternmost tip of the island. Situated on a cliff at the end of a high plateau, getting there required climbing a steep series of switchbacks, down which a steady stream of motorcycles, cars, and buses. Despite the rocky adventure getting there it is well worth the effort to experience the golden wheat fields, blissfully shady pine groves, and of course, La Mola lighthouse at the very end of the road.
From its beautiful white sandy beaches to its turquoise water you won’t be disappointed so come and experience this amazing island!
