The beach of Playa Tramontana in the south-east of Formentera has for the most part been left in its natural state. Particularly in the summer months it attracts numerous families and couples looking for somewhere sheltered from the wind with generally calm water. The soft sand continues out into the shallow, turquoise-coloured sea. Flat rocks divide the beach into several bays. Although there are no amenities here, you can find restaurants and small shops nearby in the neighbouring village of Caló de Sant Agustí.

Playa Tramontana consists of several tiny, sandy bays and is situated in the south-east of Formentera where the coast is mainly dominated by rocks. The beach is right next to the small village of Caló de Sant Agustí, which is ten kilometres south-east of the harbour town of La Savina. There are parking spaces for cars and scooters at the roadside and a wooden pathway leads over the low dunes to the beach.
Playa Tramontana has for the most part been left in its natural state. In the summer months numerous couples and families can be seen under colourful parasols in the bays. Between the flat rocks sandy areas extend far into the shallow, turquoise-coloured water. Vast dunes dominate the scenery behind the beach and the south-eastern cliffs of Formentera can be seen behind Caló de Sant Agustí. Lots of yachts and sailing boats come here from the neighbouring island of Ibiza to drop anchor in the calm waters off the coast.
At the western end of the beach a small bay with numerous boat houses separates Playa Tramontana from Caló de Sant Agustí. In this village, which can only be reached via the nearby road, there are two restaurants with terraces from where you can enjoy the view of the beach. Furthermore, although there are some small shops here, water-sports activities are not on offer at this beach.
