When we leave the port of La Savina, the road skirts a large salt water lagoon known as Estany Pudent. Discover Ses Salines, which looks especially pink and purplish in summertime. These are vestiges of the salt industry, the cultural legacy of Formentera and the island’s only industry in the days before tourism.
This route runs along the Es Brolls pathway, which circles a large part of the lake and is a unique place for walking. The name refers to the underground sources of fresh water that allow plants to thrive and attract nesting birds. Flamingos are frequent visitors in winter, as are grey herons and mallard ducks. A unique setting where rushes, cane and other fresh water plants live alongside vegetation adapted to salty environments, thereby creating authentic marshlands.
This circular route allows for trips to Formentera’s main town, Sant Francesc Xavier, as well as the coastal town of Es Pujols.
