6 Formentera Beaches: So Beautiful You Have To See Them To Believe Them

Formentera beaches are the stuff of dreams.

This island south of Ibiza offers some spectacular beaches where you can swim and relax while the crystal clear, azure waters surrounding the island lap against the white sand.

There are many unexplored coves and secluded beaches on the island, where you can find peace and tranquility. Many of the beaches are backed by sand dunes and untouched nature.

Check out these 6 beautiful beaches of Formentera – click the videos and watch in disbelief. 🙂

1. Illetes Beach

Illetes is a long white sandy beach that extends from La Savina, Formentera’s port, to the small island of Espalmador.

This beach is great for swimming, snorkeling and going crazy in the water, but also to chill out and relax like a king or queen. The beach offers incredible sunsets, and the sight of calm turquoise waters lapping on the white sandy beach is enchanting.

Due to its proximity to the port and excellent fish restaurants, Illetes beach gets crowded in summer. The beach offers water sports facilities, and ferry boat service to and from La Savina.

2. Llevant Beach

Llevant is a beautiful beach with plenty of space to relax on its long stretch of clean, white sand and with fabulous views of Ibiza.

This less crowded beach can be easily reached by bicycle. The beach is backed by sand dunes and old salt pans that provide shelter to nudists.

3. Platja des Canyers (Canyers Beach)

If you want to avoid the crowds, feel a bit like at the edge of the world with the wide expanse of the Big Blue in front of you, than Canyers beach is for you.

This natural, unspoiled beach is 85 meters/ 300 feet long, and lies between Es Pujols and Sa Roqueta. It’s close to the road, but be careful not to miss it as the rocks hide from the view. Climb the rocks, and there you are!

4. Playa Migjorn (Migjorn Beach)

Migjorn beach on the south coast is a mixture of rocks, grass and deep sand.

It features a series of coves, white sand and calm, glass-like seas. This is the longest beach on the island and has many water sports facilities like snorkeling, sailing, beach volleyball and pedalo hire.

There are bars and restaurants scattered along the beach. As it is a national park area, it is beautifully well kept.  Nudists and snorkel-lovers are regulars here, but the beach is so long that everybody can find their own corner.

5. La Savina Beach

You’ll be spoilt for the photo choice and go camera-happy on La Savina beach.

In the distance you’ll see Ibiza island basking in the Big Blue – it’s the port of arrival of the boats from Ibiza to Formentera.

Great for families and anyone who prefers a calm day at the beach.

6. Cala Saona (Saona Beach)

Cala Saona is a wonderful half-moon shaped beach on the west coast.

When you see the color of its sea you’ll know you’ve found your heaven on this planet! It is located on a bay, and is very quiet and intimate. The turquoise waters and picturesque fishing boats add beauty to this beach scene.

The water of Saona beach is very shallow and is warm basically all the time, so it’s perfect for lounging in with a cocktail somewhere close by. 🙂

There is a beach bar, one small hostel and good restaurants on this beach.

Formentera does not get the same level of hype as Ibiza, but that’s what’s helped it preserve its authentic and natural feel.
