Coves and secret spots
By day, all roads lead to the beaches, of which Formentera has an abundance. Teranka lies on Playa Mitjorn, the mythical southern stretch that is home to gin-clear waters, ice-white sands and a winding boardwalk that links the island’s iconic chiringuitos.
Playa Illetes is where visiting yachts from Ibiza spend their days at anchor and is home to excellent seafood restaurants such as Juan y Andrea and Es Molí de Sal. A regular passenger boat takes guests from Illetes to the nearby uninhabited nature reserve of Es Palmador. Cala Saona is a deep cove surrounded by red cliffs and pine forests that is especially popular at sunset.
