Formentera Villages: Summer vs Winter
As in most aspects that refer to Formentera, life and activities in the villages of the island have a very abrupt change depending on the time of year we will visit.
The summer season will bring villages on Formentera with a great number of shops, restaurants, and bars and also people walking through its streets at all hours.
Something completely different will bring the arrival of the end of the tourist season where the population decreases and with it the volume of open shops, restaurants, and bars.

Formentera Villages: Facilities
In almost all the villages of Formentera, you will find all the basic services although you have to take into account the offer of each one.
For example, pharmacies.
Formentera has 6 villages, but there are only 4 pharmacies on the island.
If you are in La Savina or La Mola, you will have to drive several kilometers to get to a pharmacy since, in those villages, there are not pharmacies.
Regarding emergency services such as the Hospital of Formentera, the headquarters of the Civil Guard or the Municipal Police, you will find them in Sant Francesc, on the outskirts of the village.
A taxi rank and bus stop can be found in all of them but depending on the time of the year of your visit, the service will be wider or smaller.
