Playa de Ses Illetes
Located just a stones throw away from the party island of Ibiza is the small island of Formentera. Despite its proximity Formentera can only be reached by boat and feels like a different world. There are several beautiful beaches around this unspoilt island but the Playa de Ses Illetes is the best of the bunch with its fine white sand and crystal clear turquoise waters.
The beaches name comes from the six islets which lie just off the coast providing additional protection from the Mediterranean waves.
The sand on Playa de Ses Illetes actually has something of a pink hue to it. This is the result of tiny red fragments of coral shells mixing with the white of the sand to create an ever-so-subtle pastel pink.
Ses Illetes is quite a small beach and can become busy during the height of the season.
