This trip is more than just a journey from “A to B” because not only does it link the towns of Sant Ferran de ses Roques and Es Pujols, when we are half way there we can also visit the large salt-water lake known as Estany Pudent. The route takes the historic Ses Vinyes path, a meandering narrow path flanked by dry stone walls on both sides.

IN the sixties, the town of Sant Ferran de Ses Roques was a magnet for hippies and Bohemian types who would meet in the legendary Fonda Pepe which is open to this day. Its carefree, creative, festive air is kept alive by the art and craft markets that take place during the summer season on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, as well as by live music in the square on Fridays.

Es Pujols is the most touristy part of the island, although you will still find signs of its fishing past, such as dry docks and a lovely beach where a relaxing swim is highly recommended. The Es Pujols and Es Arenals beaches both have access for people with reduced mobility. There are access ramps, shady platforms, handrails, amphibious chairs and lifeguards.

End your tour at Estany Pudent enjoying the wonderful landscape and its bird life; it is a perfect place for a stroll or a bike ride. This spot is accessible using Route 2 to Sant Francesc Xavier or La Savina.
