S´Estany des Peix and S´Estany Pudent
The town of La Savina, Formentera, is surrounded by the sea on all sides.
The open sea that separates us from the rest of the islands but also in its inner part by two flood zones, or rather, flooded areas called S´Estany des Peix and S´Estany Pudent.
The first of them, S´Estany des Peix, is at the back of the urban center and is a large, very closed bay where a large number of boats anchor throughout the year.
Swimming is allowed and it is an ideal space for the practice of sailing sports such as windsurfing and a municipal sailing center has been installed on the north shore of S´Estany des Peix.
The second of them, S´Estany Pudent, is a huge pond located on both sides of the road that heads towards Es Pujols and borders the urban center of La Savina on its eastern side.
S´Estany Pudent is one of the ponds used for the collection of sea salt that, for many years, was the economic engine of Formentera and La Savina the port of loading of the precious product.
