Chill out on Ibiza’s quieter sister island

If Ibiza is the island equivalent of a massive night out, Formentera is more like the after-party you never want to end. A 12-mile-long scrap of land just off the bigger Balearic isle’s southern edge, life here revolves around the beaches – some of the best you’ll find in the Med. Most of Formentera’s coast is fringed with sandy bays, and development is minimal. Walk through steep dunes to reach powder-fine Platja Llevant, where the shallow waters reach bath-tub temperature on summer days, or explore the tiny fishing hamlet of Es Caló de Sant Agustí, tucked into a rocky cove ringed by faded wooden boat shelters. Platja de ses Illetes is known not just for its Caribbean-standard beach but restaurant Juan y Andrea, something of a local institution. Take a seat under a white parasol for some prime people-watching opportunities, as diners saunter in from moored yachts to sip rosé or feast on cartwheel-sized paellas and prawns just pulled from the sea.
