The island of Formentera is a true natural paradise located in the Mediterranean Sea. Its transparent waters and its extensive beaches of fine white sand are ideal to disconnect and let yourself go.
In the previous post we saw the busiest routes to discover the coast of Formentera, due to the fact that mostly the wind blows from the east. But what do we do when we have a south or west wind? In today’s post we propose an alternative route that will allow you to get to know the west coast of Formentera.
IBIZA – PLAYA DE LEVANTE – ES PUJOLS – PUNTA PRIMA – ES CALO – IBIZA
We leave the port of Ibiza and pass through the Illa d’es Porcs, an islet with a lighthouse of almost 30 meters, towards our first destination: Levante Beach, located at the north point of the Island and later on the Illetes beach .
It is an extensive white sand beach with crystal clear waters that shares similar characteristics to that of Illetes, although its extension is wider and wilder.
Its extensive dune system and the Llevant forest complete a natural environment of high ecological value.
Also, being less well known brings a calm atmosphere to the spectacular views of the island. To anchor, it has a large space with a sandy bottom and the lack of beacons will allow us to get closer to the shore in case you want to take the opportunity to eat at the only restaurant on the beach.
After enjoying the first refreshing bath on our route, we go to Es Pujols where we will find a set of coves separated by rocky areas that make up one of the most important tourist enclaves on the island. It is a quiet area with turquoise waters and fine sand, complemented by islets and rocks along the water that together with the fishermen’s huts make up a unique and spectacular landscape.
It is a quiet beach perfect for snorkelling. Having a great gastronomic offer, we recommend making a stop to eat and regain strength to continue with our route.
Near Es Pujols we find the cliffs of Punta Prima, which are characterized by a natural environment with abundant nature and tranquility. In which we can find a great variety of caves to discover both in tender, kayaking or even diving.
It is a different place, where you can make a quiet anchor away from the most saturated places with boats and with the privilege of being able to enjoy some imposing cliffs that give us an impressive panorama.
Finally, we will visit Es Caló, a traditional fishing area where we find wooden piers at the base of a cliff.
Its beach extends to the cliffs of Pilar de la Mola where the Mola Lighthouse is located. In Es Caló we will find a variation of sand and rock bottoms with turquoise waters perfect for snorkeling.
If you have limited time, we recommend you take a shorter route that ends in Punta Prima, where the return to the port of Ibiza with the rays of the sunset sun on the impressive cliffs and the orange color at sea level will form an image worthy of remember on your vacation.
Without a doubt, discovering Formentera on board a boat is the best way to do it. At Ibiza Central Charter we will be happy to help you choose the best boat for your vacation.
