This is one of the festivals that most makes people want to come and live here. Formentera's village festivals are held on different dates every year and always finish with a Flower Power party. Traditionally, festival goers travel to Formentera by boat, either ferry or their own craft, land on one of the beaches and head for the village. Enjoy the afternoon and into the evening, try the barbecue and cocktails and if you stay out all night, head home as the sun comes up or stay on in Formentera and enjoy the island the next day.
Dalt Vila transforms itself into a medieval city. Food stalls, games, stalls demonstrating traditional crafts, animals and musicians, all transporting you to another time. Each year, between 5 and 8 August, the old city walls of the Dalt Vila host this festival full of circus performers, knights, jugglers and snake charmers. More information on www.ibiza.es
