Formentera offers fun and relaxation for all tastes: from beach clubs to the trendiest bars.
Formentera is an island to be savored slowly… a unique and magical place where, in addition to the magnificent beaches, you can have fun, meet new people and be carried away by the nightlife of the many clubs. There is no person who, after a first holiday, does not feel a magnetic force against this small island!
Your days will be marked by simple rituals such as breakfast, lunch in the beach clubs (the characteristic bars / restaurants on the beaches), the aperitif at sunset (“la puesta de sol” in Spanish), dinner at the restaurant, the after dinner in the trendy bars and, for those wishing to enjoy Formentera’s nightlife, the island’s best nightclubs. You won’t have anything to worry about, everything will be a pleasant discovery and the hectic pace of your daily life will only be a distant memory.
On this page we will give you an overview of the best places in Formentera (beach clubs and discos), with detailed information and advice. Let yourself be inspired and Formentera with its magical aura will do the rest.
PIRATABUS: this “chiringuito” (beach bar in Spanish) is a real institution on the island. Pascual (known as the pirate) was a German hippy who in the 1970s decided to transform a disused bus into his beachside venue: he created the Piratabus, a small bar in a unique location. In the 1980s, however, the new laws on environmental protection and respect forced him to remove the bus which was replaced with the current wooden kiosk. Fortunately nothing of that happy and carefree atmosphere has changed over the years.
The Piratabus is located in an area overlooking Es Arenals beach, at km 11. Highly recommended for an aperitif, this is where you will see one of the most beautiful sunsets in the whole island. The cocktail that we recommend is definitely the mojito (their workhorse) and sipping it among the notes of “Con te partirò” will be one of the most beautiful experiences that you will experience on Formentera.
BLUE BAR: is one of the historic Formentera beach clubs. Recognizable for its walls all painted blue, it is located in a magnificent location, on the golden dunes of the splendid Playa de Migjorn. To reach it you will have to arrive and turn at km 8 of the road that leads to La Mola. Once the Blue Bar was a meeting place for the island’s hippies and even now it boasts an audience looking for a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
We advise you to definitely go there for the aperitif, but also for its restaurant with fusion proposals (a mix between Mediterranean and Asian cuisine). In the evening it turns into a real disco bar! Popular with Spaniards, the Blue Bar offers a wide musical selection that varies from reggae to rock and will allow you to go wild from midnight until the early hours of dawn. Finally we recommend the Alien Show: on Tuesday and Friday at sunset do not miss this show that for years has been entertaining adults and children.
LUCKY: this characteristic beach club located in Playa Migjorn is very close to the Blue Bar. Here you can breathe a wild and authentic atmosphere, that of the “old Formentera”, not suitable for those looking for a glamorous aperitif. It enjoys a wonderful view of the sea and its customers are always young people looking for relaxation and fun; all you have to do is order a mojito and a piadina and you will immediately feel at home.
The chiringuito is masterfully managed by a Bolognese staff that organizes aperitifs and lunches based on simple and tasty dishes. From the piadinas of Romagna to the imaginative salads we suggest you try the one with figs and local goat cheese, all accompanied by an ice-cold beer and a pleasant background music.
KIOSKO 62: it’s a really old-style beach club, far from the tourist traps! The Kiosko 62 retains, in all respects, the connotations to be defined as one of the most hippy and informal places that will literally capture your heart.
Located at the beginning of the beautiful Migjorn beach (Ca Marì area), near the Gecko Hotel, this small wooden bar is run entirely by Spaniards and offers one of the most unique cocktails of the whole island: the pomada (made with gin and lots of lemon slices). This cannot be missed among the Formentera beach clubs to try while staying on the island!
SA SEQUI: this very suggestive beach club with an informal atmosphere is located along the road from La Savina to Es Pujols (before the Caribbean beach of Ses Illetes). It overlooks the sea and if you want a drink here we recommend you to come at sunset, when the sun dips into the water.
There is a wide choice of cocktails offered, we suggest you to accompany them with excellent fried calamari, a real goodness for the palate!
BESO BEACH: it is one of the most exclusive beach clubs in Formentera. It is also present in Tulum, Ibiza and Sitges. This entrepreneurial group has been able to create a real world made of high gastronomy, music selection and a terrific location from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean. At Beso Beach you will breathe a cosmopolitan atmosphere and immediately perceive a particular energy. Frequented mainly by Spanish people, before 7 pm it is possible to access it only if you have booked a table, after this time, at a cost of € 25, you will be given a bracelet with which you can consume inside.
Get ready to dance and have fun without stopping and remember… no hay verano sin beso! On the beach, in front of the restaurant, there is the photographed bench with this now famous slogan.
EL TIBURON: thanks to the wonderful position on the sea and the landscape offered, this beach club is one of the most frequented chiringuitos in Formentera. Located on the beach of Es Cavall d’en Borras, it is a reference point for celebrating the traditional “puesta de sol” with friends.
El Tiburon is much loved for its exclusive character and for the excellent offer of cocktails and dishes based on fish to accompany the aperitif. Reservations are recommended in high season.
PEOPLE: this small chiringuito, with a modern and sophisticated structure, is located at the end of Es Pujols beach (just before the Rocabella hotel). Very informal and far from the tourist flows, this kiosk offers high quality cocktails to drink strictly with your feet in the sand.
Ideal for those who want to relax… All you have to do is lie down on one of the many poufs on the beach and listen to the soundtrack proposed by them. Convenient for those who spend a day at the beach in Es Pujols.
10.7: located in the long sandy beach of Migjorn, this beach club, directly overlooking the sea, boasts a terrace where you can admire a truly impressive panorama. The name derives from the fact that it is located at km 10.7 of the road towards El Pilar de la Mola, near the village of Es Calò.
In this unique location you can enjoy a sunset that you will hardly forget! Recommended both the excellent cocktails and the innovative sushi proposal.
FLIPPER: located at km 11 of Playa de Migjorn, precisely on the beach of Es Arenals, this place is mainly visited as a bar during the aperitif rather than as a restaurant. Equipped with a amazing terrace on the sea, it is possible to enjoy the sunset lying on the sun loungers in a charming and romantic setting.
In addition to the wide selection of cocktails you can enjoy excellent tartare and classic nachos with guacamole.
CAN VENT: is a beach club located at the beginning of the Es Pujols promenade and works both as a bar and as a restaurant. The morning is attended for breakfast where you will find both sweet and savory dishes and, for those who decide to sunbathe on the adjacent beach, it is also a great place to have lunch.
Thanks to its position, it lends itself very well as an aperitif: just a few meters from the sea you can enjoy the last rays of sun while sipping excellent cocktails. In the evening, the restaurant fits into the long list of places to dine in Es Pujols. Choose it if you like to hear the sound of the sea and be caressed by the sea breeze.
TIPIC: it is one of the oldest clubs in Formentera, in fact it was inaugurated in 1971 with a Pink Floyd concert. It is located in the heart of the island, right at the beginning of Es Pujols coming from Sant Ferran. Ideal for those who want to fully enjoy the nightlife of Formentera.
During the high season it is open almost every night with theme nights that alternate in a regular way. There are many internationally renowned DJs who have played in this famous disco: Sven Vath, Ilario Alicante, Nina Kraviz and many others. For all the information we advise you to visit the website and rely on the many P.R. present on the island: they will be able to show you your ideal evening day by day!
PINETA: this nightclub is nothing more than the sister of the historic club on the Romagna Riviera. Located in the center of Es Pujols (a short distance from the Tipic) it was inaugurated in July 2011 and thanks to the professionalism of the managers it has become one of the most fashionable places on the island. The interiors are elegant and attention to detail, not even the selection at the entrance is often rigid!
The Pineta club is the ideal disco for those looking for a bit of social life and want to listen to good music. Open until 6 am, international DJs such as Bob Sinclar, Skin, Boy George, David Morales and many others are often alternated. For more information on the evenings visit the Pineta Facebook page.
