Beaches and attractions



Formentera offers more than 20km of white sand and clear water with surprising combinations of blue.
On the island you can find everything from the typical lonely cove to dream beaches, but on all of them you can enjoy the peace and quiet of a natural  environment protected from overcrowding.
If there is something that makes Formentera different from other Mediterranean destinations, it is its beauty and the absence of buildings from most of its coast.
The commitment of several decades to sustainable development has made it possible to enjoy
heavenly beaches today, but with all the services and safety of a western destination.

Es Arenals
Es Arenals Beach of sand mixed with small shells brought in by the sea and gentle waves, in contrast to the other beaches on Formentera.
Located in the Mitjorn area and with refreshment services and water sports.
Length: 150 metres
Orientation: South


Es Caló de Sant Agustí
Small refuge for fishermen, where you can taste the sea in a maritime environment.
The beach is small and the La Mola cliffs can be seen on the right.
We recommend visiting the area and the nearby restaurants.
Length: 50 metres
Orientation: North-east

Es Cavall d’en Borras
Es Cavall d’en Borras beach is the nearest beach to the port of La Sabina, which can be reached on foot or by cycling along the coast.
It is a peaceful beach with crystal clear water that has views of the port, Es Vedrà and the yachts and
boats anchored off it.
Behind it there is a beautiful wood of Savin juniper where you can take shelter from the sun at the hottest times.
Length: 800 metres
Orientation: West


Ses Platgetes
Area of beaches with fine, white sand following on from Es Caló, in combination with low rocky outcrops. In the background is the blue horizon and, to the right, the green and brown of the La Mola cliffs.
Length: 100 metres
Orientation: North-east

Es Pujols
Magnificent beach in the tourist area of Es Pujols, where you can find all the services:
accommodation, shopping, restaurants, water sports.
It is separated from the residential area by a pedestrian promenade where hippy souvenir stalls are put up in the evening.
Es Pujols beach is made up of stretches of sand and stretches of lowlying rocks where you can find the fishermen’s huts, where they keep their boats.
In front of the beach you can make out small islets, offering beautiful views.
A quiet beach for the whole family to enjoy.
There is also a ramp and chairs adapted for disabled people to go in the water.
Length: 300 metres
Orientation: East


Cala Saona
This small beach, despite its limited size (it is hardly 140m long) is one of the most beautiful you can visit. Its characteristic tranquillity and beauty make this cove a place not to be missed for tourists.
It is surrounded, of course, by restaurants and bars, where you can eat or cool down with a drink while you enjoy the marvellous views it offers of the nearby island of Ibiza or, without going so far, the coast of Punta Pedrera or the lovely Punta Rasa cliffs, which can easily be accessed on foot as they are hardly 10  minutes from the beach.
Length: 140 metres
Orientation: West


The beaches of Illetes, at the northern tip of the island and the nearest to the island of Espalmador (just 150m away) are the most visited by tourists and therefore the busiest.
This area can be reached in any vehicle, although it is recommended to walk or cycle there to better enjoy the landscape and to contribute to its environmental protection, because of the constant passage of
people. In addition, part of this area cannot be accessed with vehicles, only on foot, because of the irregular ground.
The Illetes area is one of the most complete in terms of leisure facilities: water sports (sailing, sky sailing, etc.), restaurants, kiosks, deck chairs, sunshades; basically everything you need to enjoy a whole day on the beach.
There is also a seagoing boat service linking this area with the port of La Sabina and the island of Espalmador, which makes transport and access to other places of interest on the island much easier.
Length: 500 metres
Orientation: West

Also at the northern tip of the island, but in the eastern part, as its name indicates. It is also a large beach and, because it is in the area nearest to Illetes, it is quite busy. However, because of its length it is possible to find quieter, lonelier places although, of course, there are still restaurants and
beach bars. Its proximity to Illetes makes it possible to walk around all the beaches in the north of the island.
Length: 1,500 metres
Orientation: East


IIt can be said that Migjorn beach is one of the biggest on the island, as its sand stretches along a large part of the southern coast, almost from La Mola to Es Cap de Barbaria.
These two points, which are quite a way from one another, can both be seen from this beach.
Its large length and geographical position make this beach one of the least busy and it is therefore one
of the most peaceful on the island.
This does not mean, however, that there are not typical restaurants and bars right beside the beach.
Length: 5,000 metres
