Espalmador, a tiny island (2,295 m long and 800 m wide, 137 hectares) and an idyllic, uninhabited spot, only metres away from the north coast of Formentera. Espalmador combines beaches and coves with clear, turquoise blue water. Its coastline is lined with cliffs, except for a cove to the south and another, smaller one in the north which, thanks to being protected by a small islet, Illa de Sa Torreta, is an ideal refuge for boats. The island has 3 beaches: Es Racó de S’Alga, Cala Bosch and Sa Torreta.
Es Pas de s’Espalmador (or d´Es Trucadors), a 50 m waterway which separates the island of Formentera to the north from the island of Espalmador at its most southern point. Its water is an intense turquoise blue colour which makes this area a place of immense beauty and great ecological and scenic value.
