Formentera Nightlife: the best guide 2024

Reading Time: 8 minutes

Formentera has always had a great nightlife that has made it world famous. Its beautiful and secluded beaches are not the only great things it has to enchant you. Formentera nightlife is full of options and styles that prove that you don’t need to be young to have fun.


What I think as a Ibicenco

Myself, I was born and raised in Ibiza, and Formentera has never envied Ibiza for the nightlife, I would even say that they are making sure it doesn’t catch up to Ibiza in that sense. So you can´t compare the 2 islands.

It´s a 35 min ferry from one to the other island and the local from Formentera have a special discount that they can hop on the ferry for like 2-3€ , like any bus really.

Us from Ibiza do get a discount but it´s still about 20€. So i know people from the Formentera that just go party to ibiza and get the early ferry back home.

Don´t get me wrong it´s still good but it´s more like a kinda off lets say small town vibe party which i do like.

Let´s face it, us from ibiza go to Formentera as it´s the closest to a Holiday we get in the busy working summer life.

Think there are no tall buildings, 4 floors max, loads of bicycles, meharies, rental scooters , so great to relax also.

My personal favorite Formentera Party? Flower Power in Sant Francesc , around mid june, a authentic dress up hippie love party in the town square center, once a year Good memories.
