Formentera nightlife is the antithesis of hedonistic Ibiza, but it does have after-dark allure. Es Pujols is the only real resort town, and it really is charm personified – take a stroll along the buzzing promenade and take in the night market, stopping for a drink at any number of waterfront bars – Bananas & Co is popular and gets loud’n’rowdy with excitable Italians sinking cocktails in high summer. German techno maestro Sven Väth hosts occasional pop-ups of his Ibiza night, Cocoon, at Es Pujols’ tiny club, Tipic. If you’re after something more traditional, Fonda Pepe in the heart of tiny San Ferran, is a rock’n’roll mecca where Pink Floyd and the Bobs (both Dylan and Marley) played in the 1970s. It’s as basic as it gets, but oozes character. Lastly, don’t forget the beach, Blue Bar in Playa Mitjorn stays open after dark, while Illetes Beso Beach really gets going when the sun goes down.
