Another little extract from my diary on Formentera. Today I want to give you the heads up for some must-visit beaches for when you get a chance to spend a few days on this fabulous island.
My favourite beach is Migjorn. Natural, not very busy and the sea is often quite rough. There are lots of nice chiringuitos for aperitifs, like Lucky, Piratabus or Blue Bar. This last one is Tommaso’s absolute favourite because at sunset on Friday’s they put on a show for the kids with an alien deejay! If you want to eat the best ever paella at lunchtime (still at Migjorn), you have to go to the Pelayo restaurant on the beach. It’s very down-to-earth but the fish is truly excellent. Levante is another amazing beach and then Les Illettes, with its incredibly famous restaurant Juan y Andrea (lots of boats come over from Ibiza especially for this well-known eating place on the beach) and Tiburon for aperitifs, generally full of Germans and French. Es Calò on the other hand is a little fishing village on the coast, on the rocky side of the island. There I would recommend Amor y Odio, really nice and a hit with youngsters.
A definite must is Es Palmadores, a little island that up until not long ago you could walk to from Les Illettes. If you decide to go, take lots of sun umbrellas and rations as there is absolutely nothing there, not even a plant for shade! Hahaha!
Finally, I suggest you have a swim in Cala Des Mort, a tiny bay with crystal clear water that you can only reach on foot.
This wild island inspired today’s outfit: just a long floaty dress by Erika Cavallini from Semicouture that is great whatever the occasion – on the beach through to aperitif time… barefoot, imagining you’re dancing on the sand until the early hours.
