Es Pujols Beach
Es Pujols beach is one of the most tourist in Formentera. A beach of crystalline waters and white sand that is in the town that bears the same name: Es Pujols. The shell-shaped beach is literally four steps from the town and is also one of the quietest to spend the day with the little ones.
Its promenade, which runs through the entire town, makes this beach have all the services at your fingertips – surveillance and adaptation for disabled people included. The beach of Es Pujols has more than half a kilometer of walk along the shore and consists of several urban beaches. Walking along its promenade, allows you not only to enjoy the views, you can also appreciate the stretches of sandy beach with the fishermen’s huts where they keep their boats.
Es Pujols Beach, ideal to go with children
This beach has a very gentle slope and very shallow depth. It is a beach quite collected and with super calm waters. It is ideal for water sports. Snorkeling or kayaking with the kids can be one of the best experiences for the whole family.
If we do not want shocks or great adventures, both the municipality of Es Pujols and its beach may be the best option. In summer, the local hippie craft market is installed on the pedestrian promenade. A pleasure!
The Migjorn beach also known as Es Migjorn is one of the best beach offers in Formentera as it is also the longest: more than 4km of walk along this long beach.
When you discover Migjorn Beach, you understand why so many people say they leave with the feeling of being in the Caribbean. It is located in the municipality of Migjorn, going up from La Savina towards El Pilar de la Mola, after passing San Francisco Javier and Sant Ferran. There are some parts more crowded than others, but if you are looking for you find your place, be it a large sand tongue or a small rocky cove between cliffs. Good bars and restaurants, and that turquoise color in the water that will shine in our eyes for the rest of the year.
Levante Beach or Llevant Beach is, along with Migjorn, the longest beach in Formentera. It is located on the east side of the elongated peninsula of Es Trucadors. The huge cordon of dunes that flanks it has a very important landscape and environmental value. Of course, here the wind blows harder and the waves can even be dangerous.
Playa Sa Roqueta
La Playa Sa Roqueta se encuentra en el municipio de Es Pujols, a medio camino entre la playa de Ses Canyes y Levante. Perfectamente puedes llegar hasta ella paseando desde cualquiera de sus playas vecinas. Es pequeñita y muy tranquila pero tiene un aparcamiento bastante limitado.
Si no corre viento, parecerá que estás en una piscina natural de aguas turquesas. Su paisaje es muy similar a La Cala d’es Morts, solo que esta cala es mucho más accesible.
Aquí el oleaje y el viento son más fuertes –sobre todo en temporada alta- y la playa es de arena fina, pero con salientes rocosos. Agua clara y afluencia media, una cala coqueta y no tan conocida como otras, muy recomendable.
Cómo llegar a la Playa Sa Roqueta
Para llegar a la playa Sa Roqueta, puedes hacerlo desde el pueblo de Es Pujols siguiendo las indicaciones y dirección Illetes, en un desvío hacia la derecha. También puedes ir en dirección Hostal Sa Roqueta, una vez llegues, a tu derecha te encuentras la playa Sa Roqueta.
Es Arenals Beach
Es Arenals is, for many people, one of Formentera’s favorite beaches. However, for many other visitors and locals, that is the question that precisely takes points from Es Arenals. In August it can be quite busy, but it is really a perfect beach paradigm. If what we have come to Formentera is to seek comforts without adventure, to be able to rest body and mind without missing anything before a film landscape, at some point in your stay you will have to stop at the beach of Es Arenals.
On this beach you will find the famous PirataBus beach bar where you can have your famous and delicious mojito accompanied by some nachos with guacomole to wait for a beautiful sunset as we show you from their Official Instagram. They take care of putting the music on!
And since you’re here, don’t leave without visiting Es Caló d’es Morts. It has no loss! locate yourself by pointing to the Hotel Riu La Mola as a reference. Es Caló d’es Morts is beyond the hotel, within walking distance. Just don’t forget a bottle of water!
Cala Saona beach
Cala Saona is one of those beaches of Formentera that you have to arrive early if you want to take a good place with your pareo. The truth is that in the middle of the summer season, it is overcrowded. Perhaps also due in part to the Hotel Cala Saona that stars in the entrance to the cove or because it has all the services, which makes it ideal to enjoy a day on the beaches of Formentera with children.
This beautiful cove is embedded between two solemn cliffs. It seems to have reached a closed auditorium and that the horizon is the stage. It is quite frequented, even tourists from Ibiza come to enjoy its sand and its waters. From the PM 820-1 road leaving Sant Francesc, at the height of Cap de Barberia, you will see the appropriate deviation.
Here you will find one of the best sunsets in the entire Mediterranean. When you finish hiding you will feel like clapping.
Ses Illetes Beach
Se llama Platja de Ses Illetes porque desde su orilla se pueden ver los islotes de Illa des Ponent, Illa de Tramuntana, Escull des Pou, Illa Rodona, Escull d’en Paia y Racó des Palo.
Sí que es cierto que en primavera va a estar menos masificada que en agosto, pero aún así merece la pena. Se encuentra en la Península de Trucadors, es el Yang de Llevant, orientado hacia el Oeste. Forma parte de la zona natural protegida de Salines, a cuatro kilómetros al norte del Puerto de La Savina. Tiene absolutamente de todo, desde cualquier tipo de servicio turístico, la posibilidad de practicar deportes náuticos, vigilancia, etc. Y podrás ir en barco desde aquí hasta la isla de Espalmador, más al Norte, o si la situación del freo lo permite, cruzar a pie o a nado en busca de los míticos lodos purificadores de piel.
Estany d’es Peix Beach
Estany d’es Peix is a beach especially recommended for families – and frequented by them – for its high level of security. Also for the relaxed practice of sports such as snorkelling or diving. In addition, it has a watchman, which makes it even safer.
Its long beach is located in the wetland that the sea forms when entering through a small access called Sa Boca. Estany d’es Peix is actually a kind of seawater pool, without waves, with shallow depth (barely exceeding 3 meters in its deepest part), with fine and still sand and warm water. It is listed as Special Protection Zone for BIRDS and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO; You will see seagulls and cormorants that prefer Formentera to other islands, and if you are lucky you will see the indescribable flamingos with long legs and neck.
Sa Boca, access to the sea
Sa Boca is the only direct communication of s’Estany d’es Peix with the sea. It is an opening of about thirty meters wide that serves as access to small boats. Better see it in pictures:
Sunrise at Estany d’es Peix
In general, any point in the Savina overlooking the sea is a great place to see a beautiful sunset. But I want to place special emphasis on the sunrise from Estany d’es Peix. It is really worth waking up a very early morning to wake up with these colors that Formentera gives you in its first light of day.
