  STS077-708-027 Ibiza and Formentera Islands, Balearic Islands, Spain May 1996
The third and fourth largest islands of the Balearic Islands, Ibiza and Formentera, are visible in this north-northeast-looking, low-oblique photograph. Ibiza, the larger of the two islands, covers 221 square miles (572 square kilometers). Fisheries, agricultural products, salt refining, and tourism are the major industries of the island. Picturesque Ibiza, with its mild climate and Roman, Phoenician, and Carthaginian remains, attracts tourists and artists. Smaller Formentera, covering 40 square miles (104 square kilometers), has fisheries and salt refining as its two major industries.
