Beachgoing in Formentera, Spain
Getting to this 12-mile-long stretch of sand, an hour-long ferry ride from Ibiza, is an adventure in and of itself. The payoff is an endless stretch of undeveloped sugary sand lining the southern shore. If and when you feel like separating yourself from your beach towel, Formentera has excellent diving, windsurfing, and kayaking. Stay at the surprisingly upscale hostel Sa Volta (rooms from $110 per night).
