The “best-kept secret” in Spain is a stay on Formentera. Es Pujols is one of the last authentic Mediterranean paradises, with 20 km of white-sand beaches, turquoise waters, and no big hotels. Snorkeling in these crystal-clear warm waters is pure bliss. While you bask in the sun on your chaise on Playa Illetes, keep an eye on the arriving yachts. If you strike up a conversation while looking your hottest, you might score a ride on a yacht for a pleasure cruise later that evening. In this perfect beach scene, flaunt your toned body in a bikini or thong or just go topless.
During the day this charming Spanish town affords breathtaking views of blue waters and whitewashed buildings set against a cobalt sky. Shop for ceramics, clothing, and accessories, and enjoy Catalan cuisine and fresh seafood. Juan y Andrea’s beachside restaurant is the hottest ticket in town; you must make a reservation a month in advance and don’t even think about changing it. Try the paella or freshly caught seafood while enjoying the sights—both the ocean views and the beautiful people.
After a day at the beach, it’s time to party. At night you can make the trip by boat to Ibiza town, a 30 minute ride by ferry or 20 minutes via jet boat. Or, splurge on a helicopter.
Stay: Sa Volta, a family-run hotel with excellent service, a roof-top pool, and a beach 50-meters away. Choose a demi-suite with a terrace.
