1. Ses Illetes
The small Balearic island of Formentera is where you'll find this most idyllic of beaches. Its 450 metres of beautiful white sands extend north toward the island of Espalmador, where some visitors dare to swim at low tide (we don’t advise it!). Ses Illetes gives you two beaches in one: on one side you have wind and waves, while the other provides a lovely, tranquil sea. Enjoy the silence (or the sound of the wind and waves) and, if you want, strip off – nudism is permitted. You can get to Formentera only by ferry from Ibiza or Denia, which means that, unlike most stunning beaches, it doesn’t get overcrowded, even in high season. After disembarking, your best bet for reaching Ses Illetes is by bicycle, which you can rent from the same port where you arrive.
