Espalmador Island is a perfect place for people who like nature. The island is located in the heart of the Ses Salines Natural Park, between Ibiza and Formentera. Espalmador can boast one of the best-kept secrets in the Mediterranean. If you want to discover this Island, you have to start with another little paradise – the island of Formentera. Espalmador covers an area of 137 hectares. It is 3 kilometers long and 800 meters wide.

The island can be observed from Illetes Beach. Although it seems possible to reach it, it is rather impossible due to the strong currents in this area.

 

ESPALMADOR ISLAND IS WORTH VISITING

 

You can visit Espalmador by renting a private boat or by taking one of the organized excursions. Although Espalmador is a private island, it is open to the public. We will not find beach bars, sunbeds, or any larger buildings here. There are only two houses, a lighthouse and a chapel on the island. Everyone who visits it agrees that there is absolutely nothing on it. The peace we experience on its beaches is extraordinary.

This island is an exceptional biological treasure. Among the fauna, seabirds such as the black-haired plover, stork, or white nightingale stand out.

To the north is a half-virgin peninsula. It consists of Levante beach to the east and Cavall and Illetes beaches to the west. The latter beach is best known in the area for its calm waters and white sand. If Illetes charms us, Espalmador will leave us speechless.

It is very easy to find a natural mud lake in the middle of this quiet island. You must head north on the narrow weed path, away from the beach. Finally, we reach a hollow filled with natural mud. This natural space is an absolute paradise for birds. Mud lakes are protected by strict environmental protection regulations. It is a dream come true for naturalists and ornithologists. Although mud baths are strictly forbidden there, tourists enjoy these natural benefits.

Espalmador is a unique place to swim, sunbathe and discover fantastic flora and fauna in a completely unspoiled natural environment. Don’t forget to bring sunscreen, food and drinks. There is nothing there but amazing natural landscapes. Since the island is located in a national park, no major construction investment can be implemented. An interesting fact is that a few years ago the island was sold for 18 million euros. Its owner is a family from Luxemburg.
