Platja de Migjorn Beach
Platja de Migjorn is the longest beach on Formentera, stretching along much of the island’s south coast. Strictly speaking this isn’t really one beach but a string of sandy coves, most of which are only separated by a few rocks. Each of these has its own character and charms, with some being more popular than others.
Migjorn stretches for nearly 6 km between Cap de Barbaria and Far de la Mola. This section of coast has a wilder feel to it than the more popular north coast and this helps keep things a little quieter. This is still a a beautiful beach though, with miles of golden sand and the bright blues of the Mediterranean backed only by low dunes.
Along Playa de Migjorn’s length there are a few sections that stand out and are the most popular. To the far western end is Es Ca Marí, a pristine area of beach backed by pines and juniper. This is also the best place to eat with a few upmarket restaurants and chiringuitos tucked away amongst the trees.
At the opposite end of the beach is Es Copinar, which also has a good selection of places to eat. This is probably the best place to stay around Migjorn, if not the island, with the Hotel Riu La Mola offering luxury beachfront accommodation.
The most popular stretch of beach here is Es Arenals, towards the eastern end. This is the widest section of sand and is backed by a number of cafes and restaurants, including Es Arenals, from which the beach takes its name.
Platja de Migjorn has a long and varied coastline, and really does have something for every beachgoer. Warm, shallow water make it ideal for families; great places to eat for foodies and there are even sections where clothing is optional. On top of all this Migjorn is one of the best places on Formentera to catch a sunset.
