Formentera Beaches Votes Best in Europe

“Endless sea, fine sand, spectacular views, yachts, fancy stalls, Ibiza on the horizon.” Trip Advisor 2020

Last year Trip Advisor named Playa Illetes beach on Formentera the No 3 BEST BEACH in Europe. During the past years was the No1.

It was also voted 7 in the ranking of top 25 BEST BEACHES IN THE WORLD!

Playa Ses Illetes

Playa Ses Illetes is one of the first beaches you arrive to when you come to Formentera from Ibiza by boat. With its long narrow strip of beautiful white sand stretching far into the distance and the crystal clear, warm waters you might think you were in the Caribbean. It’s shallow too – making it a perfect spot for families.

Ses Illetes Formentera


Before you arrive at Playa Ses Illetes you can’t avoid arriving at Espalmador and / or Sa Torreta both which can only be accessed by boat. The only other way is to walk across the sandbank from Ses Illetes. It is impossible not to be mesmerised by the beauty that’s greets you; and because it’s a nature reserve there are no Beach Bars here. Just white sand, turquoise waters, nature and tranquility.

Sa Torreta Formentera

Cala Saona

Cala Saona is worth that little extra time to get to and has lots to offer everyone. Apart from the beautiful beach, the underwater caves here and at Punta Rasa are a “must do” activity for those looking for something a bit more adventurous.

Sandy beaches, hidden coves – Ibiza has it all.

Ses Salines

Named after the salt lakes found in the south of Ibiza, Ses Salines is a mile-long crescent of sand. Found on the southern most tip of the island it is bordered by a small pine forest, sand dunes and a nature reserve. It’s seemingly endless expanse of soft white sand, is lapped by gorgeous crystal clear water which on slightly windier days can even provide some good body surfing waves. Due to the high salt content in the water here you get to stay afloat for longer too!

This beach is host to an amazing selection of beach restaurants. Sa Trinxa, Malibu, The Jockey Club and Guarana to name the main ones on the beach all serving fabulous food and cocktails. Las Salinas is a great place to relax and people watch – there’s ALWAYS something going on!

Sa Caleta

This is one of our undisputed favourite places to go in Ibiza. This stunning cove is backed by dramatic red cliffs and sand to match. Many people come here and mix “their own mud” (by scraping the red clay off the cliffs and mixing it with water) because they believe it has therapeutic benefits and will soften your skin. Whatever your view the aquamarine water that laps at the shoreline is the perfect place to wash it off. For others it’s just a heavenly family beach with shallow waters and great snorkelling opportunities. It’s a special place.
