There is also the possibility to charter for 2 days just in case you like Formentera so much that you want to extend your excursion from Ibiza to Formentera by one day without having to stay in a hotel just private in a secret bay of Formentera with your friends or family. And the best thing: You’re not bound to the ferry schedule. Thus, you can decide on your own when to leave the island jewel. This comes in handy when eating out in one of the most popular restaurants in Formentera not having to think about your ferry schedule while trying to enjoy your delicious food and drinks.
