Snorkelling – that wonderful moment when you put your face in the water and discover a magical and mysterious underwater world beneath you. The waters around Ibiza and Formentera are beautifully warm and crystal clear. Ibiza and Formentera are brilliant places to enjoy the fun of snorkelling.
Our top 5 locations are:
Es Calo – Cala Saona – Punta Rasa – Cap des Falco – Sa Caleta
Formentera is one of the best places to snorkel in the Baleariacs because it has a number of natural advantages. Namely there is no plankton in the water which consequently means it remains crystal clear. Another noteworthy factor is the island’s shape protecting it’s beaches when the wind blows from the north!
This is a great area for snorkelling and diving. The water here is clean and clear and provides the perfect setting for all sorts of water activities. Due to minerals in the rocks, the water here is an incredible deep blue. Absolutely stunning.
This beautiful bay, on the western side of the island of Formentera has calm, shallow turquoise waters and is a perfect location for “snorkellers” of all ages. Enjoy swimming with some bread and watch the fish “jump” to attention as you feed them.
The caves at Punta Rasa, just round the corner from Cala Saona are very special. They are definitely for the more adventurous “snorkeller” but if you’re up for it you won’t be disappointed. With natural light shining through these caves the water below is so clear and bright you might think you’ve somehow discovered Atlantis. Imagine a swimming pool lit up at night. The caves have lots of chambers that provide strategic “breathing” stops in-between dives so you can fully enjoy their natural beauty. Your Be Charter Ibiza skipper will guide you through.
The warm waters that surround Ibiza attract a myriad of different marine life. Anything from octopus, seahorses, starfish and dolphins can be spotted in this Mediterranean haven.
Cap des Falco / Es Codolar
The beach at Cap des Falco is long and because it’s stony it doesn’t receive many human visitors meaning the waters remain calm and are a haven for marine life. The water here is also extra salty due to the beaches proximity to the salt plains giving you extra buoyancy whilst you investigate the world beneath you. At the beginning of the beach there are various small coves which are ideal for swimming. Mornings tend to be spectacular, and sometimes on very calm days, dolphins can be seen a hundred yards from the beach, making it totally idyllic.
Sa Caleta is backed by dramatic red cliffs and is horse-shoe shaped creating a wonderful feeling of seclusion. The sandy beach is very shallow with clear water making it an ideal snorkeling location for families and on both sides of the beach there are a series of wonderful rock pools which are ideal for investigating with our younger crew members!
