On the Southeast. The South Coast of Formentera, thence a line from Punta Rotja, its Eastern extreme, to the Southern extreme of Isla Cabrera (Lua error in Module:Coordinates at line 668: callParserFunction: function "#coordinates" was not found.) and to Isla del Aire, off the Southern extreme of Minorca.
