Formentera Beach Photos

The unusual geological evolution of the island can be seen in the variety of Formentera beach photos. The central, narrow part of the island known as Es Carnatge has the rocky Tramuntana coastline on its north face, and the sandy Platja de Mitjorn on the south. The northern peninsula has back to back beaches with no buildings in sight, and there are also various bays, such as the natural cove of Cala Saona. Formentera’s beaches have a number of natural advantages: with no plankton in the waters they remain crystal clear, and the island’s shape protects the southern beaches when the winds are up on the northern beaches.

In total Formentera has over 20 kilometres of beaches, from rocky coves through to white sands stretching out along the ocean for kilometres. What you will notice about most of the beaches is the almost total absence of buildings, and those that do have construction have significant height restrictions. The Blue Flag Programme, owned and run by the independent non-profit organisation Foundation for Environmental Education, has awarded its mark to many of the island’s pristine beaches. Let’s take a look at some Formentera beach photos…
