We leave Es Pujols following the number 19 green route, which we can follow at the end of the marina promenade, heading North. A comfortable wooden walkway will lead us, meandering through dunes and spectacular sand formations, to where Formentera seems to want to melt into Ibiza.

We walk on enjoying the serene beauty of this land, which is highly protected as it is part of Ses Salines Natural Park. We reach a narrow stretch of very fine sand, barely 50 metres wide, that separates the beaches of Llevant and Ses Illetes. We cannot resist the delightful temptation to dip into it with all our senses.

With the Mediterranean Sea still lingering on our skin, we again take the path that leads along the area called Es Trucadors until we come up to the unmistakeable blue of the tiny stretch of sea that separates us form the island of S’Espalmador, with the silhouette of the island of Ibiza as a backdrop to this unforgettable image.
