Escape the summer heat in the sheltering arms of pine and holm oak forests and untamed vegetation. This long stretch of the finest, whitest sand never loses its lush green appeal. Also known as Cala Pi de la Posada, this is one of the longest and narrowest public beaches: one kilometer long and twelve meters wide. Its waters are calm and clear.
Well-known for Hotel Formentor and its Blue-Flag beach, Cala Gentil, Formentor beach, and Formentor Island are also nearby. The area stays lush and green throughout the baking summer heat, the ideal place to relax and wind down!
Given the local amenities and luxury hotels, this area offers a range of prices for sun beds: two beds and a parasol in Zona L’Espiga are €13.50/day, with Zona La Veranda charging €21/day and Zona Platjamar asking €50.00. Pay attention to the zone signs to be clear on day costs, before you settle in for a nap or a read.
Formentor beach is easily accessible by car or public transport. It offers all the amenities you may need including toilets, water stations for drinking, access for those physically-challenged including all terrain wheelchairs and wooden walkways, tourist information points, cafes and shops. Rent paddle boats on the beach here at €15 an hour. The beach is safe for children. Lifeguards are on duty 10.30am until 6.30pm in high season, and 11am until 5pm in mid-season. The beach is not patrolled in low season, which is mid-October to mid-May.
