The typical day tripper from Formentera gets off the ferry at La Savina, and hangs around the marina in an underwhelmed state of mind. Finally, realizing that the port doesn’t have that much to offer they head up to the capital Sant Francesc. The problem is that with ferries arriving at 11a.m., by the time they actually leave the port, the shops and restaurants of Sant Francesc are shutting for siesta. By this time they are scrambling to actually see something before they have to leave at 4p.m. Don’t make these mistakes of the typical tourist. . If you are a day tripper to Formentera then you want to avoid the standard itinerary that is thrust upon you as you get off the ferry. After reading our guide book you will be able to choose the route that suites you, from a country walk to bird watching in wetlands. We tell you how to get to the best beach on the island within 30 minutes of stepping off the ferry. After reading the book you will certainly want to stay on the island for more than a day.
