A pop­u­lar yacht­ing stop-off from fash­ion­able Ibiza next door, the sandy beach of Playa de Ses Il­letes is on a nar­row penin­sula on the north of For­mentera. The go-to spot on the small is­land, it is backed by sand dunes that slope gen­tly into the turquoise sea, pro­vid­ing another Euro­pean beach with Caribbean flair. Frank Lam­pard is among celebri­ties who have re­cently vis­ited the beach’s pop­u­lar Juan y An­drea restau­rant.

The is­land of­fers a qui­eter scene than Ibiza, says Cathy Ouwe­hand of Sav­ills. “It suits some­one who is look­ing for a se­cluded is­land, which is achiev­able in For­mentera even in the busy sum­mer months,” she says. “Some­times own­ers from Ibiza move there for a change, while oth­ers may have prop­er­ties on both is­lands.”

Prices are higher than Ibiza, with a vil­lage house around €1mil­lion.
