Formentera del Segura
The village itself has numerous bars/restaurants and the village square is an ideal place to meet the locals on a warm night with a cabin bar serving drinks into the early hours.
There are interesting local spanish shops in the village [ the butchers has a settee where the ladies sit and chat whilst their meat is being prepared] but there is also a well stocked supermarket less than 5 mins. walk from the apartment. There are also larger supermarkets [Aldi etc.] a 15 min walk away along the river and there are local weekly markets selling fresh fruit and veg. as well as lots of other local goods and clothing.
Formentera market is at the end of your street and takes place on Monday. Benijofar is on Tuesday and is a 15 min. walk through the orange groves and Rohales market is Thursday and is more of a 30 min. walk but worth the time as there is lots to see in Rohales - cave dwellings and the shell house - and many bars and restaurants to break up the journey.
If you have a car you can drive to Guardamar about 6km. away with its beautiful blue flag beaches and lovely parks and marina. In the early evening there is a fun fair here for the children and a night market as well as a huge variety of restaurants offering dishes from all over the world.
There always seems to be a Fiesta or Festival somewhere in this area. Formentera's main one is at the end of August - Rohales the end of June and into July and Guardamar is in February. If you happen to be around at the right time expect to see wonderful processions with decorated floats involving most of the local people from grandfathers to babes in arms- all dressed in colourful costumes. Don't intend going to bed early though because the music and fireworks tend to go on into the small hours.
For a quieter time a drive inland towards the mountains will take you through orange and lemon groves to find lovely medieval towns and moorish villages with stunning historic churches and architecture.
This area of Spain is not only one of the healthiest in the world due largely to the salt lakes - climate and clean air - but it also has some of the finest beaches. About 12km south along the coast is Torrieveja which not only has great beaches and watersports but also has all the exciting nightlife you could want. About the same distance going north up the coast is Santa Paula which also has watersports and lovely sands with plenty of bars on the beach.
If golf is your sport there are at least 7 good courses nearby - La Finca is 10mins. from Formentera and La Marquesa Golf and Country club is 4km away.
Alicante and Murcia airports are both convenient for Formentera each being only approx 35mins away which gives plenty of choice for cheap flights/car hire.
