The beach of Es Cavall d’en Borras, located between the port and the beach of Ses Illetes, hosts many young people every day for the traditional rite of “puesta de sol”.
The beach of Es Cavall d’en Borras (also known as Cala d’en Borras) is the closest beach to the harbour of La Savina, is about 2 km, and is located west of the salt pans.
This cove, quite limited in size and made from fine white sand, has the advantage of offering a beautiful turquoise sea with gently sloping sandy bottoms, ideal for those wishing to enjoy a relaxing dip in the crystal clear waters. From this stretch of coast, which is part of the Natural Area of Special Interest of Ses Salines, you can see the uninhabited rocky islets of Es Vedrà and Es Vedranell, reaching a maximum height of 382 and 128 meters, respectively. Being one of the most beautiful areas of the island, there are several boats moored in this little corner of paradise.
In the back of Es Cavall d’en Borras there is a sand dune system and a grove of pine trees and thick bushes that extends to the salt pans and Estany Pudent, a stagnant pond. This allows tourists to protect themselves from the sun during the hottest hours of the day and provides shade for the rest stop. This feature is greatly appreciated, since shaded areas are rare in Formentera.
In this wild-looking beach there are two very famous beach bars (chiringuitos): El Tiburon and Beso Beach (formerly Big Sur), which, every day before sunset, host many young people for “puesta de sol”, rite widespread in Formentera which consists in sitting on the sand waiting for the sun to disappear on the horizon with only the sound of the sea in the background.
You can reach the beach easily, located between the port of La Savina and the most famous beach in Ses Illetes, following the road signs. Nearby there are places where you can park cars and motorcycles, while the car park of Beso Beach is charged. It can be reached by bus but also on foot or by bike along the coast starting from the port.
