Formentera

Establishment neighborhood
Formentera Verde
57 Carrer de Joan Castelló Guasch, Sant Ferran de Ses Roques
Landing here without your #goodcleangoop moisturizer is a bummer, but it happens. This cheerful shop in Sant Ferran doesn’t have quite the same merch as Brentwood’s goop Lab, but there are still plenty of clean options. Bright green shelves heave with recognizable Euro brands, and the Lanzaloe moisturizers made from 100 percent organic aloe vera grown in the nearby Canary Islands are especially gorgeous.
Gecko Beach Club
Ca Mari, Playa Migjorn
By far the sleekest property on the island, the Gecko Beach Club has an enviable position right on Platja Migjorn. The thirty suites designed by Mallorcan architect and designer Antonio Obrador all have private sunset terraces, and some also have individual plunge pools. The overall aesthetic is clean and modern: lots of blue accents and plenty of wood. There’s no gym or spa but the club runs a series of yoga retreats throughout the spring. Expert yogi Yiannis teaches daily classes by the beach before breakfast, and the sapphire pool is so inviting that a few laps and a walk on the beach easily trump pounding the treadmill. Pool beds and loungers are available to book by the day if you want a taste of Gecko without the full commitment.
Can Tres
Camí de Can Simonet, Sant Francesc
A short walk from Platja Migjorn, Can Tres is actually three properties—Can Aire, Can Mar, and Can Terra—melded together. Earthy tones, plenty of straw, smooth stone floors, and bright patchwork pillows are common elements throughout. We loved the integrated stone tub and shower in our Can Mar bedroom—having a sunken bath two steps from the white linen bed made the room feel so intimate and cozy. The property is ideal for a pack of friends looking for a secluded hideaway or for a multigenerational holiday. Spend the day splashing in the pool or take a short ten-minute amble down to the beach, where you’ll find Kiosko 62, a simple beach shack made for sunset drinks.
