Shopping and Eating in Formentera, Spain

Formentera is one of the largest cities in the country of Spain.

Shopping at Formentera

Fortunately, there are no shopping malls or department stores at Formentera defined by AbbreviationFinder. This beautiful holiday island is not hampered by that kind. That does not mean that there is nothing to shop at Formentera.

Here are sophisticated specialty shops and expert sales of spin prints and craft products scattered around the island. In addition, Formentera, like its big sister, Ibiza, has a proper hippie market.

Hippie Market or Fira Arte Sanal

Located just outside El Pilar de la Mola, Artisans’ is the hippie market with big H on Formentera and just as much a tourist attraction for the family as a ‘must’ for the shopping savers. And while this can be categorized as a tourist trap, there is astonishingly good quality here. Artisans’ market is open Wednesday and Sunday afternoons.

Blink Formentera

in Sant Francesc there is a small shopping area that houses a really cool shop; Blink Formentera. You can shop interior products from hand-picked Italian designers and music from the island’s best DJs. Here you will find the gifts of the one who has everything! The address of Blink Formentera is Calle Ramon Llull, 11.

Full Moon

If you are looking for handbags, sun hats, shawls, t-shirts or anything else to put it on, whether at the beach or the beach bar, then the Full Moon store in the town of Sant Francesc is the place.


If, like everyone else, you get extra romantic after a few days at Formentera, then just visit the Majoral jewelry store in the La Mola area. The store’s name is taken after the owner Enric Majoral, a jewelry designer who creates the most beautiful jewelry inspired by nature at Formentera.

These are top quality products and something that every woman (and man) will wear with pride and joy.

Food in Formentera, Spain

Formentera must live forever in the shadow of his big sister Ibiza, also on the restaurant side. But the food at Formentera is sensationally good. Often local produce that is grown organically.

Most of the island’s establishments honor their food in an alluring way. They know that good food tastes good for both eyes and stomach.

You will find the restaurants concentrated on the main beaches and in the port city and the administrative headquarters of La Savina. But some restaurants are also more or less strategically located on the island. Then you’re on a journey of discovery, so don’t be afraid to try a local tavern.

Several of the restaurants are expensive, but the quality is usually in style. And as mentioned earlier. You do not travel here if you are on a budget. However, it should be said that there are plenty of beach bars and simple eateries if you want something simple. And in markets you can buy the best raw materials for a very reasonable amount of euros. If you have an apartment with a kitchen, you are free to make something good yourself.

restaurant at Es Pujols and Carrer des Fonoll MarĂ­ street, 2. With a lovely location right on the beautiful beach, this is a perfect place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s also short of the hippie market at Formentera so why not combine the restaurant visit with some souvenir shopping too? NB! Bliss (and service) can be cramped in high season. Short distance from Hotel Tahiti.
