This makes it a fantastic choice for families, couples and anyone who wants to slip effortlessly into island time. Want to escape to the sun-drenched Balearic Islands?

Beach hopping in Formentera

From golden crescents to secluded sandy coves, Formentera boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean. Playa de Ses Illetes is one of Europe's best-kept secrets, with aquamarine water and a pair of postcard-perfect islets just offshore. If you can drag yourself from your idyllic Formentera vacation rental, there are plenty of watersports on offer. Luxury catamarans are a fantastic way to spend the day, with the opportunity to swim, snorkel and explore hidden beaches. For street vibes, head to Sant Francesc Xavier, the island's lively capital. It's brimming with traditional tapas bars, terrace cafes and designer boutiques.

Descend into subterranean Formentera

Perched on Formentera's northern tip, a pair of beaches merges at Es Pas to create a shallow sandbar. At low tide, you can wade across to the island of Espalmador and explore its crescent-shaped beach, low-lying dunes and murky mud pond. Adventure seekers should make time for Cova d'en Xeroni caves, which are dripping with stalactites and stalagmites. The Far de sa Mola lighthouse is another island icon, built on the eastern edge of the island. Bob Dylan fans should make the trip to Cap de Barbaria Lighthouse, which was supposedly rented by the legendary musician in the 1970s.

Sun-drenched Spanish summers

Summer is high season in the Balearic Islands, with the season kicking off in May and running right through to October. Crowds peak in July and August, when flocks of sunseekers descend on Formentera. Want to maximize your time in the sunshine? With shimmering pools, spacious decks and lush gardens, luxury Minorca vacation rentals make the most of the Spanish sunshine. Thanks to its Mediterranean climate, winter is still warm enough to enable you to step out in comfort from your Formentera vacation rental to sunbathe, beach hop and sightsee.

Beach hopping in the Balearics

Set in the Mediterranean Sea, Formentera is part of Spain's Balearic Islands archipelago. Dreaming of a deserted beach all to yourself? The island's southern arc is laced with a handful of sandy bays. The strip is known as Playa de Migjorn and is wonderfully undeveloped. Be warned, these secluded stretches of sand are longtime favorites with naturists. If you're craving a nightlife fix, you can always daytrip to Ibiza, which is just 30 minutes away by fast ferry.
