Pleasantly underdeveloped, the tiniest Balearic island of Formentera is a bright, fragranced paradise of cerulean seas and creamy white sand coves. It is warm and sunny. Everything is instantly de-stressing. The deliciously slow pace, the soothing soundtrack of the breaking waves, the underlying mystery, Formentera is pure fantasy, a decadent visual feast.
Go naked, swim, eat, drink, cycle, repeat. Life´s simple here. You don´t have to do anything special. Just take your shoes off and enjoy the island life. When the sun descends into night, the vast sky becomes a magical, fleeting shade of indigo.
