South of Ibiza, the smallest of the islands of the Balearic archipelago, is a jewel of tranquility. Feet in the water or in the center of the island, our favorite and confidential addresses.


Barely 30 minutes by boat separate this island from its big sister Ibiza. The smallest inhabited unit in the Balearic Islands (83 km²) is also the quietest, with a white and turquoise coastline. Ideal for relaxation, solo or as a couple. The two main cities, Sant Francesc Xavier, its capital, and La Salvina, are located in the western part. For an even more peaceful setting, focus on the rural landscape of the east of the island, where the curious disembarked from Ibiza to spend the day do not have time to go! All that remains is to find a nice accommodation.

A wooden pontoon that runs on the dunes, Balinese beds to relax on the sand, a beach club where you can enjoy cocktails to the tunes of bossa-nova... The perfect definition of an address dedicated to idleness. Located on the beautiful beach of Migjorn, this establishment, a member of Small Luxury Hotels, has thirty rooms and suites. The suites have a terrace and a small private pool that allows you to cool off. The beach restaurant is famous for its grilled fish and lobsters. A shop offers some local creations. Well-being is also in the spotlight with outdoor massages lulled by the sound of the waves, yoga classes and retreats to recharge your batteries.

We like: romantic dinners by the sea organized on demand.

Nestled in one of the coves of the island, the Hotel Cala Saona owes its reputation to its sublime infinity pool with a bird's eye view of the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. The rooms have a very clean design with blond wood beds. The proximity to the beach makes it a dream address for families. The gourmet restaurant Sol Past is worth a visit. A fusion cuisine that combines local products with a Latin American flavor. A real delight.

We like: the sustainability policy of the hotel which tends to no longer use plastic and which has installed a water desalination system to water the gardens.

The price: from 150 € the double room with breakfast.

This boutique hotel located at the end of Migjorn beach is part of the Pacha group, famous for its nightclub in Ibiza. No wonder the owners chose a dream location on this sandy beach with translucent waters that stretch for miles. The decoration is signed Patricia Galdón, a well-known interior designer on the island, who likes to play with a palette inspired by the colors of the region, neutral tones, earth and sand. The driftwood pergolas shelter from the sun, the rope chairs invite you to relax unless you prefer to join the outdoor dance floor. This bohemian chic style is a real success.

We like: Live music concerts facing the sea.

The price: from 250 € per night with breakfast.

Casa Pacha, Camí es Arenals, Km.11, Es Caló. 07860 Formentera. Tel: +34 971 31 35 35.

Opened in the summer of 2022, Teranka, a member of Small Luxury Hotels, is nestled in the maquis at the end of a sandy path leading to Migjorn Beach. We could not do wilder for this new establishment that combines the codes of luxury with a bohemian side. To offer more privacy to its guests, the rooms and suites are distributed in three buildings: Mar, Tierra and Cielo. Twenty-two rooms in Mar, the main building, the most beautiful suites are in Cielo and benefit from rooftops. Art exhibitions are frequently offered with lectures given by the artists. On the top floor, a sublime rooftop to enjoy tapas and drink spicy margaritas at sunset. Finally for epicureans, two restaurants: the Nobu pop-up on the rooftop and the Garden restaurant on the ground floor with beautiful local specialties à la carte such as grilled octopus or orzo with prawns.

We like: the terraces of the suites of the Tierra building with their stone walls revealing a Mediterranean garden.

The price: from 450 € per night with breakfast.

Built with total respect for the environment, this thirteen-room establishment fits perfectly into the old quarter of Sant Fransesc Xavier, the main town of Formentera. An aesthetic with a modern design in the Mediterranean style, with light tones of white mixed with natural materials. A swimming pool to cool off on hot days, very practical even if the sea is never far away, the beach of Ses Illetes is only a few minutes away. Bicycles are available free of charge, very convenient to move from beach to beach.

We like: the succulent breakfast and the outdoor gym with the view of the rooftops of the city and the location in the city center that allows you to enjoy the pedestrian streets and shops.

The price: from: 250 € per night with breakfast.

Hotel Spa Es Marès, Carrer de Santa Maria, 15, 07860 Sant Fransesc Xavier. Tel: + 34 971 32 32 16.
