Four beaches in the Balearic and Canary Islands, among the 25 best in the world

Users of the popular Tripadvisor travel portal have chosen, as every year, their 25 favorite beaches of the five continents. Among the prestigious list there is four Spanish, Canary and Balearic beaches.

The list is led by the bay of the Island of the Conigli (of the Rabbits), where surrounded by white cliffs is the most beautiful beach of Lampedusa, on the Italian island of Sicily. The Portuguese of Falsein the Algarve, they occupy second place in the list of the best beaches in the world, two regulars that often repeat.

Playa de Muro (Majorca)

The third is Playa de Muro, in the northeast of Mallorca. It stands out for its fine sand beaches that have little to envy to those of other countries. Turquoise waters, beaches of fine sand, dreamy sunsets and endless attributes have made it one of the best beaches in Spain and Europe, according to user opinions.

But in Playa de Muro you will find much more than sun: sports, nature, culture, gastronomy or relaxation. The 7 kilometers of sand that make up Playa de Muro are divided into 4 Sectors: Sector 1, Sector 2, Es Comú and Ses Casetes des Capellans.

Playa de Muro (Majorca).

Sector 1 and sector 2 are the areas where you will find the greatest number of services. All this carefully integrated into the landscape to make you feel at all times as if you were in paradise.
The Es Comú area belongs to the s’Albufera Natural Park. A totally virgin beach, flanked by dunes and pine forests that will convey the true essence of Mallorca.

Behind the beach line of Ses Casetes des Capellans you will discover a peculiar setting of small fishermen’s houses nestled in the sand.

Leeward (Fuerteventura)

In the ninth position of the ranking is the beach of Sotavento de Fuerteventura.
Occupying an extensive 9-kilometre strip of pale sand and shallow waters in the southeast of Fuerteventura, Sotavento beach boasts a wild, undeveloped aspect that is only altered by the force of the wind, which whips it mercilessly.

Extending like a small piece of paradise on earth, Sotavento beach is surrounded by immense dunes bathed by calm, crystal clear and unalterable waters in which it is necessary to advance several meters to find a deep space.

Leeward Beach.

Being one of the longest beaches in Costa Calma, Sotavento beach is the ideal space for those looking for a quiet environment without crowds in which to enjoy nature.

Many people choose Sotavento beach thanks to its strong winds that make it the ideal space to practice some water sports such as windsurfing, surfing and sailing.

Ses Illetes (Formentera)

It is probably the most representative landscape of the spectacular coast of Formentera.

This beach, ranked eleventh on the Tripadvisor list, is located within the Ses Salines Natural Park of Eivissa and Formentera, occupying a large part of the es Trucadors peninsula, the extreme north of the island of Formentera, and facing west. There are more than 450 meters of beach that are divided in two due to a small rocky area in the middle.

Ses Illetes.

Its name refers to several islets that spread out off this coast and these are known by the names of: Illa de Tramuntana, Illa des Forn, Escull des Pou, Illa Redona and Escull d’en Palla. Their presence makes the landscape of this beach even more unique.

The most remarkable thing about this beach is its calm, shallow and turquoise waters that, together with the white sand of the shore, make it a paradisiacal landscape.

The Quarries (Gran Canaria)

In position number 15 we have Las Canteras beach, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Three kilometers long next to the city that make it the best urban beach in the world. The restaurant-filled promenade is a high-traffic area for tourists or locals, and the areas of Playa Chica and La Puntilla are also of common interest.

The pits.

As an extra peculiarity, the La Barra reef stands out for its beauty, which surrounds the coast and on which you can walk when there is low tide.

The name of the beach has always been linked to La Barra, a sedimentary rock of sandstone and calcareous deposits that runs parallel to the shore, providing shelter from the northern waves and giving it its own personality.
