Spain, beach addict habitat.
To see is to believe. Often cited as one of the best beaches in Spain, Platja de Ses Illetes is up there in terms of beauty. Crystalline waters lap onto pure white sands where you can lay for hours immersed in paradise. The beach is actually only small strip sand that juts out into the ocean and divides the sea in two. Both sides by the sea have a narrow slice of sand, but most people come here to spend time splashing around in the dazzling turquoise waters that surround the sand. The ocean is so shallow that it’s particularly warm. Thus, so much so that lounging around in the shallows is more like having a bath!
