Formentera offers more than 20km of white sand beaches and clear water of turquoise blue. You can find everything from the typical lonely cove to dream beaches; on all of them you can enjoy the peace and quiet of a natural environment. The secret of crystalline water in Formentera and its long white sand beaches is the posidonea prairie that surrounds the island, a natural treatment plant that cleans the water and makes it possible for sand to be deposited on the coast. Posidonia meadows between the islands of Ibiza and Formentera, in the area called Ses Salines Natural Park have been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999.
The coast of Formentera is marked by great cliffs that tower above the sea and long beaches of fine sand. Its beauty and the absence of buildings from most of its coast is what makes Formentera different from other Mediterranean destinations. The commitment for several decades to sustainable development has made it possible to enjoy heavenly beaches with all the services and necessary safety without looming buildings or chaotic constriction.
What will undoubtedly attract every holiday maker’s eye is the island’s nature, the stone walls, the magnificent traditional architecture and fig trees that have become sculptures in the middle of the island’s fields. The special and captivating geography, a mild climate and Mediterranean plants that combine dunes with pine and juniper tree forests, give the island its particular and unforgettable character.
