How to get to Ses Canyes

To reach Ses Canyes Beach from La Savina, you need to take the main road (PM-820) and then take the left turn indicating the direction of Es Pujols. Continue on this road for approximately 4 kilometers until, before reaching the roundabout, you find a dirt road on the left that will take you to the sea, passing right in front of the entrance of Sa Pedrera Suites&Spa.

Follow that dirt road, and before reaching the sea, you will see a sign on the left indicating the correct direction to the parking lot of Ses Canyes Beach. Once parked, you can access the beach via an elevated wooden walkway, which will give you a first glimpse of the breathtaking blue waters that enchant anyone.

If you are in Es Pujols, you can head towards the northern end of the beach and walk along the wooden walkways that line the coast. There is no chance of getting lost, as these walkways will lead you directly to Ses Canyes Beach. This walk is truly beautiful and will allow you to reach an amazing beach.

Parking at Ses Canyes

Despite being within the influence zone of the Ses Salines Natural Park, Ses Canyes Beach does not have vehicle access control, which means that the two parking areas for cars, motorcycles, and bicycles are free of charge.

It is important to mention the common sense of visitors and ask those reading this entry on the website to always park in a way that facilitates the subsequent departure of other vehicles already parked. Show empathy towards those who arrived before you and wouldn’t appreciate being blocked by your poor parking, preventing them from leaving when they wanted to.

That being said, it’s worth noting that Ses Canyes Beach has ample parking at the southern end of the beach, as well as another parking area at the northern part, closer to Sa Roqueta.

Choose the parking area that suits you best, or head to the other one if you find the first one full when you arrive with your car or motorcycle.

Currently, Ses Canyes Beach only has a small concession of 60 sun loungers and 30 umbrellas located at the southern end, near the wooden walkway that provides access to the beach. It is true that until recently, Ses Canyes Beach did not have any concessions of any kind, and its appearance as a “wild beach” is not as pronounced as before.

Nevertheless, considering its almost 500 meters of sandy shoreline, it cannot be said that Ses Canyes Beach is overexploited by any means.

Since there are no lifeguards stationed at this beach on the northeast coast of Formentera, the responsibility for water safety should lie with the concessionaire of the sun loungers. However, it is worth noting that the attendant is not present throughout the day but comes and goes. Therefore, it is important to be attentive and responsible when swimming at Ses Canyes Beach to ensure you don’t require assistance from a lifeguard.

In the worst-case scenario, if someone needs help, do not hesitate to call 112, and the lifeguards stationed at Es Pujols Beach would be the first to arrive.
