Exploring the island
Cycling and e-biking are an exceptional way to explore using the island-wide network of 32 rutas verdes (green routes) 29 of which are suitable for cycling. The 100 kilometres of routes mean that visitors can get to know the entire island – including the iconic salt pans and magical caminos – with minimal environmental impact. Hiking the vertiginous, stone flagged Camí de Sa Pujada – an ancient Roman Road – provides a remarkable way to view the island from its highest point.
Horse riding is especially beautiful on the beaches at sunset. Padel can be played at several courts on the island, while water activities, including foiling, kayaking and snorkelling can be found everywhere. Formentera’s most respected scuba diving centre, VellMarí, was founded by the National Geographic underwater explorer Manu San Félix in 1993 and is dedicated to the conservation of Formentera’s UNESCO-protected marine environment.
