S'Espalmador (Catalan pronunciation: [səspəɫməˈðo], Spanish: Espalmador) is a small, uninhabited island located in the Balearic Islands. It is just off to the north of Formentera. It is separated from Formentera by a shallow sandbar, and during low tide it is possible for one to wade between the two islands. This area is a popular stopping point for those in yachts heading between Ibiza and Formentera. Features of the island include pristine beaches, a lighthouse, and freshwater springs and the famous mud-bath.
