After visiting the impressive Hot Water Beach in New Zealand, we return to our shores to introduce you to one of the most incredible beaches in the Mediterranean.
You already know that Formentera is home to some of the most magnificent beaches in our geography. Well, today we want to stop at the northernmost point of this beautiful island so that you can get to know Ses Illetes, one of the most emblematic beaches in the Balearic Islands that belongs to the Ses Salines Natural Park, far away from the tourist centres and surrounded by dunes and a soil rich in vegetation.
The most admired of the island
This paradisiacal beach has become the most popular on the island thanks to its fine white sand mixed with pink coral dust, its crystalline waters and its shallow sandy bottom with a slight slope. It’s like being in a huge swimming pool!
As its name indicates, there are several islets and rocks in the area, such as Escull d’en Palla, Illa des Conills, Illa des Ponent and Illa Rodona. The seabed of Ses Illetes is covered with Posidonia oceanica meadows, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, which is why the water is so crystal clear and is recommended as an ideal place for scuba diving.
How to get to Ses Illetes?
Access to Ses Illetas is very easy, as it can be reached using any type of vehicle. The luckiest arrive by boat, while others prefer to walk along its coves to admire the wonderful landscape. As we have already mentioned, Ses Illetes has become the most fashionable beach in Formentera. In fact, here you will find everything you need to spend a comfortable and fun day at the beach: you can practice water sports, such as sailing, water skiing or windsurfing, rent sun loungers and parasols, eat in restaurants…
