A gold and turquoise blanket for the beaches of Formentera
Ibiza is so close that it is very difficult to find a reason not to notice her. Why settle for a wonderful island when you can have two? Golden sand and a turquoise blanket in the sea. Here is a selection of some of the beaches on the beautiful coast of Formentera. These are just some of the more than 20 kilometres of beaches the island can boast.
For the more sociable. These are the most popular and busiest and therefore the ones with the largest leisure offer. Located north of the island, here you can enjoy water sports and there is good access to restaurants. The Nature Park declaration protects this valuable Balearic landscape.
Actually, S'Alga beach is located on the miniature Espalmador Island, just 150 kilometres from Formentera and covering but three square kilometres. Completely isolated and untouched, no construction or human intervention is allowed on it that alters its natural harbour.
Among the advantages of visiting Llevant beach is its size. This is why you can spend a quiet day on it despite the number of people. With clear waters, it is also in the north of the island.
The sea sand is mixed with small shells to make this beach special. South-facing and always full of life. One important detail is that here people usually practise nudism, so this is just for the uninhibited.
For those who enjoy diving. A place for fishermen, which besides giving extra charm makes it a gourmet centre. Fresh fish in restaurants in the area. Hardly 50 metres and close to the La Mola cliffs, the highest point on Formentera.
Mort D'Es Calo
A cove just 80 metres long, at the western end of the great Migjorn bay. Surrounded by boulders, this beach is reached on foot. Access is somewhat complicated but worthwhile. Some claim they see a smile in its shapes and the scenery is unforgettable. Relaxation healing when it is quiet.
By contrast, Migjorn beach is one of the largest on the island. It spreads along five kilometres of shoreline in the south of Formentera. It is impossible to feel saturated in its immensity. It is also quieter being farther from the port. Rich vegetation and landforms that mark the different sections into which it is divided.
