Estany d'es Peix is without a doubt the best beaches to be with family. Quiet and shallow for the little ones to enjoy.

Estany d’es Peix is a beach especially recommended for families – and frequented by them – for its high level of security. Also for the relaxed practice of sports such as snorkelling or diving. In addition, it has a watchman, which makes it even safer.
Its long beach is located in the wetland that the sea forms when entering through a small access called Sa Boca. Estany d’es Peix is actually a kind of seawater pool, without waves, with shallow depth (barely exceeding 3 meters in its deepest part), with fine and still sand and warm water. It is listed as Special Protection Zone for BIRDS and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO; You will see seagulls and cormorants that prefer Formentera to other islands, and if you are lucky you will see the indescribable flamingos with long legs and neck.
Sa Boca is the only direct communication of s’Estany d’es Peix with the sea. It is an opening of about thirty meters wide that serves as access to small boats. Better see it in pictures:
In general, any point in the Savina overlooking the sea is a great place to see a beautiful sunset. But I want to place special emphasis on the sunrise from Estany d’es Peix. It is really worth waking up a very early morning to wake up with these colors that Formentera gives you in its first light of day.
Estany d’es Peix is located in the town of Savina. From the Port to La Savina, passing through Mediterrània Avenue, it is the first beach you will find on your right.
