The best beaches of formentera


With just over 69km of coastline, Formentera is one of those ‘small but tough’ islands. With such a popular phrase we really want to express all our admiration for this Balearic island, a true paradise for lovers of sun and beach tourism as well as for lovers of the most unspoilt beauty.

Would you like to discover some of the most beautiful beaches on its coastline? Take note of what we have to tell you and start planning your route around the area. You can reach any beach on the island in less than half an hour!
The great majority of its beaches have spectacular natural characteristics: fine white sand, crystal clear waters that are dyed turquoise towards infinity and an environment (urban or not) where the verdant Mediterranean nature will always be present.

Without further ado, here are some of our favourites:

– Ses Salines: This large white sandy beach is more than 4730 metres long and 41 metres wide, so no matter how crowded it is you will probably find a space for your towel. The average width of this beach is 41 metres, with an average length of 41 metres. The strong winds can sometimes make bathing dangerous.

– Migjorn: This very long beach has sandy and rocky stretches, all of them bathed by the beautiful crystal clear waters that characterise the beaches of Formentera and surrounded by green Mediterranean nature.

– Cala Saona: This small beach of 140 metres long (120 metres wide) can boast the same natural characteristics as the previous ones, although this time it is surrounded by cliffs that protect it from the hustle and bustle of the tourist crowds. Nevertheless, it is very busy in summer.

– Cala Llevant: Practically virgin, this beautiful beach of 1450 metres of white sand is one of the most sought-after on the island. It is located next to Ses Illetes beach.

– Ses Illetes: It is a small and charming beach, and in addition to its soft white sand and very clean waters it offers a cosy environment in its 450 metres. Unfortunately, in summer it is quite crowded and you have to get a move on if you want to lay your towel down.

– Es Pujols: This is the small semi-urban beach (690m) where most of the island’s tourist attractions are concentrated. Although it is busier, the natural surroundings are still spectacular.

Other beaches that are worth a visit are S’Arenal, Cala d’en Borràs, Ses Platgetes, S’Estany d’es Peix, Ses Canyes and Racó de s’Alga.
