Formentera by Bicycle.

All you need to know.

Can you visit Formentera by bike?

Formentera is a very small island (18 km long) and quite flat, ideal for cycling. The elevated area of La Mola is the only difficulty (200 meters above sea level), otherwise (beaches and villages), they are easily accessible by bike.

Formentera has alternative paths to the main roads, special for bicycles, the name is Green Routes (you can download the map or request it when you arrive at the Maritime station in Reports).

If you come for the day, there is a bike path by the sea (you don’t need to go on the road). The trail goes from the port to the famous beaches of Illetes and will take you about 15 minutes.

Best bike route in Formentera.

If you want to know Formentera by bike in one day, the best route is: take the bike in La Savina Port, follow the red path to be next to the sea, from there pedal to Illetes. Then visit the town of Es Pujols (2 km away).

If you want more adventure, from there there is a rural road to the beaches of Migjorn crossing the island from one point to another, then follow a path by the sea until you go to the road that goes to the Es Cap Lighthouse. On the way back you will pass through San Francisco and then taking the path of Los Molinos to return to the port.

The tour is about 3 hours on the bike and you can take all day to do it, while enjoying the beaches and bars.

What bike model to rent in Formentera?

The classic beach bike, with the basket in front, is a postcard from the island of Formentera and is ideal for getting around the beach area. But keep in mind that it doesn’t have gears, that’s why it’s cheaper (you won’t miss the gears for a short route).

If you plan to ride a little more, for example, go by bike to La Mola or Es Cap Lighthouse, then we recommend Trekking or E-bike models.

Remember that electric bikes are heavier, not so convenient for rough areas. The MTB bike is the ideal option if you are going to move on gravel trails, or roads with some more difficulty and unevenness (we have an electric MTB option).

What is the price of bicycles in Formentera?

Prices vary between high season (July / August) and the rest of the year. On the other hand, the more days you take it, the better the price per day. Without buying commitment, calculate exactly how much your bike will cost in Formentera using our search box (which is on this sheet).

If you want to rent the bike for a group (more than 15 people). The price for the day is € 10 (and if there are more days the price is decreasing).

La Mola by bike.

If your plan is to go to La Mola (town and lighthouse on a mountain of 200 meters above sea level), the best is a model with gears (as Trekking, MTB or E-Bike). Calculate that the climb is intense and you must add the 15 km from the Port. If you want to upload we recommend that it be on Wednesdays or Sundays that there is Hippie Market and live music in the afternoon. Another important recommendation is that you control the lights (surely you will go down after sunset).

Bike rental in the Port of Formentera.

If you come by ferry from Ibiza the best option is that your rental has an office in the only port of the island: La Savina. In our booking engine put in “Delivery Office” the option “Port of Formentera (La Savina)”.

If you are looking for a good ferry + bike alternative, we have a special price of € 45 for the round trip fast ferry (at any time) + bike. Make your reservation to formenteranatural@gmail.com

What if I arrive at the port of Formentera with luggage?

In that case the best option is to take a taxi (usually € 8 to € 14 depending on the distance) to your accommodation and when booking your bike in our reservation box, choose the closest option (for example: Pujols or Punta Prima, etc.) to pick up your bike there. If there is no office nearby, select the option “Puerto de La Savina” and in “Observations” indicate the address of your accommodation and the time you want us to take the bicycles (do not forget your mobile).

If you have booked your accommodation with Formentera Natural, we will take your luggage free of charge, round trip.

How much does it cost to take the bicycle to my accommodation in Formentera?

If you do not have a delivery office near your accommodation, you have the option we delivery the bicycles to your accommodation. However, this option is viable only if there is no office nearby. This service has no additional costs, but you must take into account two fundamental points:

1- The delivery is made once a day, if when you take the bike you are not to receive it, you must wait the next day.

2- Formentera has many internal roads, so you must be very clear when indicating your address, delivery schedule and one or two contact mobiles.

Go around Formentera by bike.

Going around Formentera by bicycle requires training and a good MTB bike (because you will travel many rural roads and stone paths).

You can see all the options without purchase commitment, completing your dates in the reservation box.
