Formentera Salt Marshes - Did You Know?

The flat and salty marshes found along the road leading from La Savina to Es Pujols in Formentera are famous for their birdlife.  The most common species include the heron and the fen duck.

During the summer season, the grounds of the marshes are visited by flamingoes.

Until recently [1955] it was commercial viable to produce salt here, but the area was then declared a listed zone and now the area forms a nature reserve.
