5 October VII Triathlon Illa de Formentera

There is a wharf near our hotel on Playa d’en Bossa from where boats sail to the nearby island of Formentera. The average crossing time is half an hour, which makes the hotel Torre del Mar an ideal choice for accommodation if you are running in the XII Triathlon of Formentera, but you also want to enjoy the atmosphere of Ibiza. This race consists of three classes in terms of distance (Olympic, sprint and team races). The registration period for the race is not open yet, but we advise you to keep an eye on the web page of Club de Atletismo de Ibiza.
