Ibiza Beach of the Week: Playa Migjorn on Formentera

Freedom and diversity at the southernmost point of the Balearics

Playa Migjorn is one of the longest and most spectacular beaches in the Balearics. This seemingly endless stretch of golden sand is around 5km in total and a wonderful place to sunbathe, swim and just let it all hang out! Being the most spacious on Formentera and carefree, it is very diverse and relaxed - beloved by both families and naturists alike.

Uncrowded, even in high season, there is plenty of space between the sun loungers and parasols. Accommodation is thinly spread out along the length of the beach, with small hotels, hostels and holiday bungalows set back, out of site, behind the dunes.

There are many interesting places to eat and drink, with something for all budgets - from the exquisite Casa Pacha restaurant to the many classic Balearic chiringuitos and kioskos that stud the coastline.  

Like many beaches on Formentera, the large bay of Migjorn can be quite weather dependent. A refreshing breeze from the Southwest, combined with a large area of protected seagrass, makes the bay a difficult anchorage for boats - meaning that they largely stay away. It also means that the water can sometimes be quite wavy and really good fun to swim in.

And, at the end of the day, it is always a pleasure to relax at your favourite chiringuito until the sun sets, downing an aperitif or a few chupitos and maybe even having a dance on the sand.
