Próximo Ferry | August 31, 2022
The British newspaper The Guardian published a list of the 40 best beaches in Europe- In this list there are six Spanish locations, two in Balearic islands.
But from Próximo Ferry we want to recommend a beach on each island:
Ses Illetes Formentera
The first to appear in The Guardian list is Ses Illetes de Formentera. Being one of the most famous landscapes of the island and most recurrent in the rankings of best beaches, either national and internationally.
Ses Illetes is located within the Ses Salines d’Eivissa and Formentera Natural Park and stands out for its half a kilometer of white sand and crystal clear water. According to the Bristish media, it assures that it is one of the most dazzling beaches in the Mediterranean and emphasizes the effect produced by the mixture of blue in the landscape.
You will wonder ¿How to get to Ses Illetes Formentera?, if you travel from spain in summer, you can take the ferry Formentera from Dénia that goes directly non-stop, book here. Another option is to take the Formentera ferry from Ibiza, you can see the schedules here
Once you are in the port of Formentera, the easiest way to get to Ses Illetes, is to take the tourist bus L3, which directly connects the port with the beach every 30 minutes. It takes only 15 minutes and you have the information of schedules and prices here
¿How mucho does it cost to enter Illetes? access on foot is free. And it’s always open.
Cala Trebalúger Menorca
The other Balearic beach that appears on The Guardian’s list, is Cala Trebalúger, in Menorca. Located in the south of the island and undeveloped, it is one of the virgin beaches that we can enjoy as a couple or with friends, surrounded by pine forest, dunes and cliffs that envelop the turquoise color of the water and the shite of the sand.
The British media recommends the half-hour walk along the coast that goes from Cala Mitjana to this cove to feel the peace that exists in this place.
¿How to get to Cala Trebalúger?, you can take the Alcúdia Ciutadella ferry, it connects Mallorca with Menorca every day, check the schedules here
Being a virgin beach, you can only access it on foot. The best is to go by public transport or tourism to Cala Galdana and Cala Mitjana, and then continue walking along the path until you reach this cove.
Sa Calobra Mallorca
From Mallorca, although none of its beaches appear on the list of The Guardian, we suggest Sa Calobra. In the heart of the Sierra Tramuntana and with a path that is a real adventure, the small beach at the mouth of the Torrent Pareis stands out.
It is famous for the two rock walls that reach 200 meters high, which contrast with the intense color of the sea. This space was declared a Natural Monument, both for its landscape value and for its natural value.
¿How to get to Sa Calobra? it is quite difficult to get there but it is worth it. For athletes we recommend accessing by bike, it will be a 9.5 km climb, quite an achievement. By road, you have to get to Sóller and take the Ma-10 road, about 15 km away, there is the deviation that indicates that the descent of about 14 km begins to Sa Calobra, it takes approximately one hour by car from Sóller.
Cala Salada and Cala Saladeta Ibiza
From Ibiza, in our list, we include Cala Salada and Cala Saladeta which are on the coast of Sant Antoni. In a natural environment, these two beaches are a great tourist attraction.
These two coves are separated by a rocky cliff, which divides two spaces, that of a cove with a restaurant in front of Cala Saladeta, which does not have any services, simply its spectacular sandy bottom.
Remenber that you can organize your trip to the Islands of Ibiza, Mallorca o Formentera in an economical and very comfortable way. From Próximo Ferry we help you to be informed of all the schedules of the ferris Ibiza Formentera ferries, and of the Alcúdia Ciutadella ferries, in addition to being able to get the tickets as quickly as possible.
And, to finish, the day trip to Cabrera. Depart from Colònia of Sant Jordi, enjoy the smallest island of the Balearic Islands to end up bathing in the Blue Cave. More info here
