The biggest attraction of the island are its natural, white sandy beaches streching in an unspoiled lansdcape, which gives them a real Caribbean feeling. The beaches are covered with umbrella pine, instead of palm trees such as Ibiza.
The busiest of all Formentera's beaches is Playa Illetes, due to its close proximity to the port La Savina. Its white sand is stretching along the nortern tip of the island. Clean azure waters makes it perfect spot for scuba diving or snorkeling.
Cala Saona has something rarely seen in coastal landscapes. This small, deep horseshoe shaped bay's sandy beach, located on the west coast of Formentera, is backed by red rocks. Clear turquoise water is quite shallow, so it gets warm very fast.
