Each week we bring you one of the best beaches in the world as our beach of the week. This week’s best beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on Formentera in the Balearic Islands.
BEACH: Ses Illetes Beach, Formentera
WHERE: Located two miles off the coast of Ibiza, Formentera is the smallest of the Balearic Islands with no airport and few paved roads – but if a relaxed style and breathtaking scenery is what you’re after, look no further, Ses Illetes Beach has it in abundance (although it can get quite crowded in the summer months).
WHY: If all the Ibizan-style partying has taken its toll, then the unspoiled, isolated little island of Formentera is the perfect place to recuperate. Take your floppiest hat, biggest shades, and dip your toes in the transparent blue waters to unwind for a few days under the gorgeous Balearic sun.
HOW: Easy peasy. Pop yourself on a ferry (they’re very frequent) from Ibiza Town– from there it’s an enjoyable 30 minute journey that drops you straight off. There are regular buses on the island that take you to where you want to go.
H2O TONE: Cornflower Blue
SAND TONE: Rocky Road Biscuit
STAY: Set in lush grounds overlooking Ibiza and Es Vedrà, Villa Saler offers a chic contemporary stay amongst rural Formentera. With white walls and bright modern furnishings relax in the air conditioned interior, lounge on the patio or bathe in the large turquoise pool, bliss.
WHEN: From April through to October.
