La Savina: The port of La Savina is the first town to consider as it is the only access for tourists to the island and, therefore, vitally important. If anything characterizes La Savina it is the continuous coming and going of boats: boats taking tourists and locals to and from the island, large and small fishing boats, and in summer an incredible number of pleasure boats captained by people who decide to spend their summer holidays at sea, travelling the Mediterranean coasts.  

San Francisco Javier: Three kilometres from the port is San Francesc Xavier, which is the most important town, considered the capital of the island, because the Town Hall is located in the main square. Right opposite the Town Hall is the parish church, which was used as a fortress against the Barbarians in the 18th century and which, over time, has become a haven for the parishioners. The Town Hall Square is where the most important festivals and events are held, attended by locals and tourists alike, in a festive, peaceful and, above all, welcoming atmosphere. San Francisco is the busiest town during the day due to its large number of shops and bars and, particularly, the promenade, where there are numerous hippy stalls, which attract tourists with their many items related to the island. All this makes the town the capital of the island and a place you have to visit during the day. 

San Fernando: Following the same road out of the port and after passing through Sant Francesc, the next town to visit is Sant Ferran, a place you have to pass through to get to La Mola or Es Pujols, and which offers a variety of bars and restaurants where you can go to eat or just have a quiet drink and watch the comings and goings of the people visiting the town. Sant Ferran is home to one of the most legendary and historical establishments of the island: La Fonda Pepe, which opened to the public in the 60s and since then has been visited by anyone who wishes to enjoy the peaceful and genuine hippy atmosphere of the island, because, despite the years, this is one of the few places that has hardly changed over time. 

Es Pujols: The last town and probably the most tourist-orientated: Es Pujols. You reach this town from the port exit or through Sant Ferran. As soon as you enter this town you notice that the atmosphere is very different from the rest, especially at night. The wide variety of shops, restaurants, bars, pubs and discos make this place a tourist paradise. Whether it is during the day or at night, the flow of people through Es Pujols is continuous; during the day you can enjoy its beaches and shops, and at night there is a festive atmosphere, especially in the pubs and on the seafront, where people are attracted by the hippy market and the festive atmosphere is mixed with the scent of the sea.   

La Mola: Without leaving the main road, the next stop after San Ferran is La Mola, the most remote town, since it is located at the highest point of the island, about 15 kilometres from Sant Ferran. You could say that this is one of the quietest towns, since because of the distance, it is not so frequented by tourists and there are few shops and restaurants. Its main attraction is the hippy market, which opens twice a week and attracts many people. Another attraction of this small town is the lighthouse, located on the cliffs, from which you can watch wonderful sunsets and enjoy the solitude of the place.
