Espalmador is a small uninhabited island just off the north of Formentera and is arguably one of the most beautiful island in the Mediterranean. It is surrounded by small islets and has a rugged coastline with a larger cove in the south and another small cove in the north-east, protected by the island of Sa Torreta which provides the perfect spot to drop anchor. The crystal clear, calm waters, small cliffs and white sandy beaches attract yacht owners from all over the world and make it the perfect place to visit when you charter a boat in Ibiza. The most famous cove is the one in the south of the island, almost touching the island of Formentera, and on days when the sea is calm and the tide is low, you can almost cross the 200 meters sandbar connecting Espalmador to Formentera, walking through the Es Trucadors walkway. 

In the centre of this island is well known little sulphurous mud lagoon, where some visitors cover their bodies and lie out in the sun allowing the mud dry and stay on your skin for as long as possible, before swimming back to their charter boats . The island is completely deserted, except for the remains of the ancient “Sa Guardiola Tower” watch tower, which stands on the highest point and observes the passage of boats along the coast. There are no restaurants or bars as they are strictly prohibited, so come prepared with food and drink, or let us sort it out for you.
