DESTINATION

Formentera is the Best Island Destination You’ve Never Heard Of—Just Ask Nicolas Ghesquière and Vittoria Ceretti

@vittoceretti

A week ago, Louis Vuitton designer Nicolas Ghesquière posted an Instagram with Sense8 actress Doona Bae. They were seated in a private jet, its plush armchairs visible in the background, but he also tagged a location: Formentera. The tiny Spanish island in the Mediterranean, part of the Balearic island chain, is most famous for its proximity to Ibiza and for its stunning appearance in the 2001 movie Sex and Lucia. But this week it’s been a hotbed of activity, drawing not only Ghesquière and Bae but also Italian model Vittoria Ceretti, Dutch model Yasmin Wijnaldum, and a host of other European influencers and Instagram personalities. Here, see the best of Formentera’s crystalline beaches—a quieter alternative to the oontz oontz of Ibiza—as documented on the Instagrams of all these and more.
