Playa de Ses Illetes, Formentera
Formentera is the smallest of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea. The Playa de Ses Illetes (The Beach of Small Islands) is located in the peninsula of Es Trucadors in the northern part of Formentera Island. The sand there is almost pink and is simply a mix of fine white sand and coral residue. The small islands are Illa des Ponent, Illa de Tramuntana, Escull
des Pou, Illa Rodona, Escull d’ en Paia, Raco des Palo and the most famous, Espalmador.
The deliberate absence of umbrellas and sunbeds for rent and man-made structures make these beaches ideal to visit although they are not without people. Entrance and exits to the beach are monitored and limited to a specific number of people. Transport to the beach is controlled to minimize pollution. From Ibiza, it is a ferry ride away. Windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing, stand up paddling or snorkelling are some of the activities allowed on Playa Ses Illetes.
Calla Macarella, Menorca
Menorca is one of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Calla Macarella is a horseshoe-shaped cove set in a deep rocky inlet of limestone hills covered in pine trees. The limestone hills are dotted with caves, hollows and cavities that continue underwater.
Snorkeling is therefore a favorite activity in Calla Macarella. The beach does not get too crowded because of its remoteness and has facilities like lifeguard services, toilets, showers and a good restaurant by the white sand beach. Marcarelleta is smaller beach on the next cove.
