Es Trucadors Beach Formentera, Spain

by Catalina Delabarca

Formentera's geography has blessed it with a narrow peninsula reaching up to the north. There are hardly any buildings here and you see uninterrupted views out to Es Vedra, across to Ibiza, and of course to Espalmador. During the summer you will see lots of boats that have dropped anchor in the calm waters just offshore.

If you want to visit Es Trucadors it is an easy trip just out of Port de la Savina. You can either walk or rent a bicycle, and then head along Es Cavall d'en Borras. As you go up with see the Ses Salines saltworks on your right, and walk over the inlet that lets freshwater into Estany Pudent to keep it from getting too stinky. Once you get to the old mill of Moli des Carregador you are at the start of Es Trucadors.

Once you have got past Past Moli des Carregador you will walk along the peninsula's western edge and discover a number of wonderful beaches, each with its own name: Es Moli de Sal, El Pirata, Big Sur, El Tiburon, Juan y Andrea and Es Ministere. These beaches look out onto the islets of Illa Tramuntana, Illa Rodona, and Illa des Pouet. It is these islets that give the western edge the name of Ses Illetes. The eastern edge is made up of a straight white beach called Llevant.

Llevant is actually made up of two beaches. One of these is called Llevant Beach and the other one is called Tanga Beach. There are no resort hotels here, or indeed any buildings. As you look down the beach you will see that southbound it extends to Ses Salines, Platja de Sa Roqueta and Platja des Canyers.

If you go right to the top of Es Trucadors then you reach a strip of sand around 30 meters in width that have the ocean on either side. You can't beat a double beach! And just north of that is Es Pas - the stretch of water that separates Formentera from Espalmador.

The beaches of Es Trucadors can get windy, but thanks to the geography of the island it is only ever on one side, and you can just walk across to the other side when you need to.
