Summary of the Beach Inspectors

Es Cupina is the ideal place for beach fans who are not just looking for relaxation, but also want to get to know the many different features of the coastline of Formentera. The low dunes, which are the dominant feature of the neighbouring beach of Es Arenals, give way to the wild, impressive steep cliffs. The picturesque bay of Caló des Mort is hidden away just behind the cliffs. Es Cupina itself with its large sandy area, space to lie down and a typical traditional chiringuito with a wooden terrace, is an ideal spot for a relaxed day at the beach.

Es Cupina - Between wild steep cliffs and vast dunes

At first glimpse the red, shimmering cliffs behind the sandy area do not seem that spectacular. However, the further south-east you go, the more impressive they become, until the dunes and their vegetation disappear completely out of sight behind the cliffs and large rocks replace soft sand. The beach of Es Cupina in the south-east of Formentera is near a large holiday resort and borders the spacious beach of Es Arenals which is very popular in summer. Es Cupina itself has only a very few buildings.

Es Cupina is situated 13 kilometres from the harbour town of La Savina and can be easily reached. Parking spaces for scooters and cars are available near the hotel resort. From there it is only a short walk along the sea heading south-east. There are some flat rocks scattered on the large area of soft sand, especially at the water's edge, but most of the surface beneath the water is fine sand. The natural landscape here is completed by the shallow, turquoise sea and the towering cliffs in the background.

Especially in the main season it can become very busy here, when many families and couples, young and old, come to this beach, which is particularly popular with the Italians. The small chiringuito of Bartolo is a veritable institution in Es Cupina. Here you can enjoy freshly prepared snacks and drinks on the small, covered wooden terrace, although in the main season you might have to wait a bit longer for your order. At Bartolo’s you can also hire parasols and sun-loungers. There is also a large fish restaurant at the top of the cliffs, as well as more restaurants, bars and shops near the hotels at the neighbouring beach of Es Arenals. There you can also find a water-sports centre offering a wide range of activities from windsurfing to kayak and catamaran tours.
