How Long Does the Ferry Take to Formentera?

Hi

We are looking to book a holiday to Formentera in September. Can anyone tell me how long the ferry takes and is it a rough crossing?

Many thanks

About 40 mins depending on which ferry you take. It just depends on the weather as to how rough it is - it's really just your luck

MEditerranea Pitiusa has 2 types of boats "Express" that takes 35-40 minutes and "Jet" that takes 25 minutes, the price is from 43 to 46 EUR return* buying the tickets as a "Escursion Maritima". The single price is 26.80 EUR on the Jet line and 23,80 EUR on the Express line. The "Blau de Formentera" is the "Jet" line, "Menorca Express" is the "Express" line, Children from 4-11 year old pay 28 EUR on the express line and 34 EUR return on the Jet line.

It is not necesary to reserve, in fact you can not make a reservation, It is like geting a bus or the underground, all you need to do is get to the ticket office before the boat leaves, buy the ticket and get on to the boat. Our ticket office is as you get in to the boat terminal on your left, just beside a big photo of a beach in Formentera, If nesesary you can by the ticket on Board.

Ones you arrive at Ibiza airport you have to get to the harbour in Ibiza, as you get out of the airport terminal on the left you have a taxi service that takes 15 to 20 minutes and usually costs from 18-20 EUR, or on the rigth a bus service (Bus nº 10 every 20 minutes, i.e h.00 - h.20 - h.40 and costs 3.2 € ) that takes 25-30 minutes and leaves you at 160 meters from wear the boats leave and ticket office. (Ask the driver to go to the wear the Boats leave for Formentera). If you have any more questions about Formentera please feal free to ask.

The Formentera Boat terminal "Estacion maritima barcas Formentera" is in Ibiza town, and the adress is Avenida Santa Eulalia, S/N, It is very easy just ask for the boat to Formentera, or for "Burger King" or "Mac Donalds" they are at about 100 and 140 meters from the terminal.

If you have any more questions about Formentera please feal free to ask.

Atentamente,

Paul
