Playa de Llevant (Levante)
Towards the north of Formentera the land narrows into the Trucador peninsula. On the eastern coast, before you reach Ses Illetes, is the wide sandy Playa de Llevant.
This beautiful stretch of white sand and clear blue sea has something of a wild feel. Sections of the beach are divided up into little “mini bays” by rocky outcrops which give a little bit of privacy. It is probably for these reasons that Playa de Levante has become one of the best known nudist beaches in the Balearics. Along with the naturists Llevant also has a global reputation amongst the gay and LGBT community as a beach to hang out on.
Backed by low sand dunes Playa de Llevant has a wide open feel. This can be an issue during the summer months when the wind tends to blow onshore and there isn’t much in the way of shelter. If this is the case it is easy enough to pack up your stuff and take a quick walk over the dunes to Playa Illetes on the other coast.
What’s bad news for sunbathers is good news for kite-surfers and windsurfers. Playa de Llevant tends to get more waves than Formentera’s other beaches too which means it is possible to surf here from time to time.
