The climate and natural beauty of Formentera make the island a popular destination for holidays or long weekends

Thanks to the Mediterranean climate, very mild even in winter, you can continue to visit Formentera until October. Today we are going to discover a less known but much appreciated stretch of coast: the coast of Tramuntana. The coast of Tramuntana is characterized by low rocks and extends in the north-central part of the island. It's possible follow it on foot from east to west, obviously with suitable footwear and paying close attention. It is one of the least traveled parts of the island even in high season.

Along the coast we find It's Calò, also known as the village of fishermen: a truly suggestive and dreamlike place where we find several fish restaurants. Here time seems to have stopped: it is possible to see how the fish is dried, which is then used in the gastronomy of Formentera cuisine to be clear, and you can breathe a truly relaxed air. Between Es Calò and Sant Agusti it is located Ses Platgetes, a beach that combines rocks and fine white sand. A little paradise.

In the western part instead, entering from Saint Ferran, we find Cala en Baster, a small U-shaped bay. There is no vegetation here and the rocks are steep: large limestone walls. It is a part of the island known mainly by practicing nudism.
