Everything you need to know about Ca Marí

The coastal stretch known as Ca Marí in Formentera is located in the central part of the Migjorn coast. It covers a fairly long stretch of coastline and alternates between sandy areas and some rocks. Due to the currents that characterize the Migjorn area, it is common to find a certain amount of dried seagrass (posidonia) accumulated on the shore.

The Ca Marí area is considered an urban center, and as such, you will find several supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, apartments, and car and motorcycle rental companies in the area.

In different sections of Es Ca Marí beach, there are concessions for renting sunbeds and umbrellas, along with a kiosk located on the western end. However, it’s important to note that the lifeguard service is not provided by the Formentera Council. Instead, the presence of certified lifeguards is the responsibility of each individual concession holder on Ca Marí beach.

Please keep in mind…

While it is not an especially challenging stretch of coast, like other beaches in the Migjorn area, it is necessary to exercise caution due to the ocean currents that affect most of the coastline in this part of Formentera.
Always swim at a safe distance and avoid overestimating your swimming abilities. Never underestimate the sea, even if it appears calm. Enjoy it, but always with the respect it deserves.

How to get to Ca Marí

The road to access the area known as Es Ca Marí in Migjorn, Formentera, can be found at kilometer 6.5 of the main road (PM-820) on the right side when driving towards La Mola.

You simply need to take that direction and continue straight to reach the central stretch of the beach known as Ca Marí. Similarly, when you’re about 500 meters away from the end of the road leading to this part of the Migjorn coast, you’ll encounter a crossroad where you can turn right or left, depending on whether you choose the eastern or western end of the beach.

Although the road is paved, it’s rather narrow, and water supply trucks frequently pass through this area. Therefore, we recommend driving at a moderate speed and keeping as close to the right side as possible, especially if you’re driving a car.

For a significant portion of this road, the maximum speed limit is only 30 kilometers per hour, and local police in Formentera often conduct speed checks using radar. For your safety and to avoid traffic fines, drive slowly when heading to spend the day at Es Ca Marí beach in Migjorn, Formentera.

If you prefer public transportation, you have the option to take bus line 2 from La Savina and Sant Francesc, which heads towards Es Ca Marí, making stops at hotels in the area before reaching the beach.

Parking at Ca Marí

Despite being considered an urban area, parking spaces designated for cars and motorcycles in the Ca Marí zone are very limited and quickly fill up if you don’t arrive early to this beach area on the Migjorn coast.

If, upon reaching the end of the road, you find that there is no parking space available, in principle, and without guaranteeing it, you can park on the sides of the road, as there are currently no traffic signs prohibiting it. However, make sure to park as close to the side as possible and facilitate safe and sufficient space for other cars and motorcycles to pass.

Similarly, never park in a way that blocks access to residential or commercial areas, to avoid conflicts with people who are not at fault for your improper parking. It’s important to empathize with the other residents or visitors planning to spend their day at Ca Marí beach in Formentera.

Hotels and shops at Ca Marí

Ca Marí area offers a wide range of bars, restaurants, apartments, hotels, small supermarkets, and vehicle rental companies.

As it is an urban area, the development of the zone was closely tied to the construction of the hotel located at the eastern end of the beach in the 1970s. This hotel significantly influenced the overall appearance of Ca Marí beach in Formentera. The construction, in terms of volume and size, would be considered unacceptable today. However, it was built during a time when the regulations and the island’s and country’s circumstances were very different from the present.

In Ca Marí, you can choose from several restaurants that serve lunch and dinner, offering different culinary concepts. You’ll find traditional dishes from Formentera’s culinary heritage, restaurants with diverse menus catering to all visitor preferences, and even creative cuisine prepared by renowned chefs.


The coastal stretch known as Ca Marí in the Migjorn area of Formentera has several concessions for renting sunbeds and umbrellas at different sections of the beach.
