Blessed with crystal-clear blue waters, pristine beaches and a sense of relaxation which is rarely matched, Formentera truly defines the word paradise.
Considered to be one of the most idyllic locations in the Balearic, Ibiza’s sister island is perfect for those looking to recharge, chill out and generally take life at a much slower pace.
Gifted with breathtaking views, a great taste of adventure and blissful beauty, Fomentera is one of the most tranquil places in the world.
Here are six secluded spots which illustrate just how peaceful this island actually can be.
Highly popular amongst nudists because of its secluded nature, Playa Sa Roqueta is another unadulterated white waterfront making it one of Formentera’s seclusive small bays.
Situated in between Es Pujols and Playa de Llevant, this remote gem is surrounded by flat rocks and shallow waters making it an absolute catch for snorkelling. Ideal for families, couples and solos, this spot appeals to all.
Blessed with arguably one of the deepest shades of blue water on the island, Es Calo is a small fisher village located at the foot of an arduous hill which leads up to La Mola.
In what can only be described as a snorkeler’s playground, Es Calo presents an elegant pier immersed in several fisherman’s huts with an array of small, sandy beaches and coves to fulfil all of your escapist desires.
Both immaculate and seemingly untouched, El Tiburon is tranquil, secluded and accompanied with views of picturesque values. Situated in between Playa Illetes and La Savina beaches, this hidden spot is surrounded by countless pine trees and shade during the peak hours of the daytime for those of you who burn easy.
Presenting an offering of beautiful views of both Es Vedra and its larger sibling, Ibiza, this sterile location remains peaceful and quiet even during the busier months of the summer season.
An ideal spot for any budding photographers who may be visiting the island, Calo Des Mort is a fantastic little cove providing simply stunning views which are probably better seen up from above as opposed to journeying down the rocks.
Once down at the bottom, this secret hangout ignites a real sense of intimacy and personal feeling in what is a little oasis tucked away from the rest of the world.
One of Formentera’s most unsullied wonders, Playa De S’alga is situated on the inhabited inlet of Espalmador just north of the island. Never one to get busy over the course of the summer months, this gorgeous stretch of sand is only accessible via boat.
Unspoilt and pure in every sense of the word, this beach comes with no facilities, therefore, we recommend you pack your own supplies before venturing over – worth every second though.
An idyllic spot for nudists, Cala En Baster is the perfect getaway from the island’s busier coves and is drenched in serenity. Located near the north side of the island, this concealed bay isn’t the easiest to access requiring a hike of a couple of hours in which your efforts and persistence are rewarded in kind.
Quite rocky and jagged, not many tourists come to explore Cala En Baster giving visitors a true feel for escapism. It also makes for an excellent snorkelling experience.
