It’s well known that Europe has some of the best beaches in the world. Countries like Greece, Cyprus, Malta and Spain fill out their postcards with magnificent beaches. But certainly there is one, hidden in a little island near Ibiza, which takes the prize for “the best beach in Europe”: Ses Illetes beach, in Formentera.
Formentera, the smallest of the Balearic Islands (also Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza), has no airport and is only accessible by boat, fact that makes it the less populated and most quiet of the four islands.
Those who have visited it, describe it as paradisiac and relaxing. An opposite alternative to the busy night life of his siblings. And here, as an example of relax and nature, is where Ses Illetes come out.
Located to the north of Formentera, Ses Illetes has an uncommon shape. The beach is like a path with the sea at both sides, and when you reach the end, if you swim 50 meters you get to a small uninhabited island called El Espalmador.
So… Yes. You can lie down on white sand with crystal-clear water both east and west, an island with an amazing landscape to the north and a beach bar to the south. All you have to do is come to Formentera!
