Climate and temperatures in Formentera

The climate on Formentera is generally mild with high temperatures in the summer. There is little rainfall, which, combined with the poor quality of the soil, makes farming difficult, even though it was formerly the basis of the island’s economy. To learn about life on Formentera in times gone by, it is well worth visiting the Ethnology Museum, which provides insights into the rural and maritime life of an island that has managed to preserve its ancient customs down the generations.
