There are over 12 miles of Formentera beaches, from rocky coves through to white sand coastline. In this article we look at four beaches that you can enjoy exploring.
Es Cavall d’en Borras and Moli des Carregador
Running up from Port de la Savina is the coast of Es Cavall d’en Borras, which is made up of two sections known as Cala Savina and Es Carregador. Really it is little more than a strip of land that keeps Estany Pudent out of the sea. There is some protection from the Sabina trees, but it can get pretty blustery. The old mill, Moli des Carregador, marks the end of this strip of coastline.
Platja de Canyers
This beach is a small strip 85 meters long and an average of 12 meters deep. It has calm waters and is located just outside Es Pujols on the road to Es Trucadors. The beach is surrounded by steep cliffs, and you have to go up a small incline to reach it.
The beach that runs behind salts works, just down from Platja de Llevant shares the same name as the salt pans. It is protected by a long dune, and is just two kilometres from Es Pujols. The water here can get a bit choppy, even in the summer – you should always take care to check the swimming conditions on Formentera beaches.
The erosion that has taken place in Tramuntana makes for an interesting landscape. It runs for around five kilometres up to Ses Plagetes. If you are seeking some privacy then exploring Tramuntana will pay dividends as there are a few sandy beaches lurking through the rocks waiting for those that take the time to find them.
