PLAYA DE SES ILLETES

Our Guide to Formentera

Playa de Ses Illetes is the most popular destination for charter boats visiting Formentera. Only reachable by boat, its white sand and crystal waters make this beach that was once crowned the sixth best beach in the world, one of the most legendary beaches of the Mediterranean. Playa de ses Illetes is located just north of the island of Formentera, in a very long stretch of land that seems to extend its arms to neighbouring Ibiza. For a truly unforgettable experience, we recommend an overnight stay which will allow you to discover the lesser known beaches and coves.

Ses Illetes beach is in an optimal position thanks to the direction of the wind which makes the water completely calm and its colour a stunning blue. Team this with the whiteness of the sand and it’s reminiscent of the Caribbean. There’s a number of great restaurants and beach clubs here which makes Illetes the top destination spot in Formentera. And when the sun goes down with the beach facing westerly, the sunset never fails to impress. Add a mojito to some beautiful Balearic beats and you might think you are in paradise. Hold on, maybe you are…
