Sa Roqueta is situated at 1,5 kilometres from es Pujols, between the beaches of ses Canyes and Llevant, aswell as next to Salines de Formentera, megalithic tomb Ca na Costa and Estany Pudent. In this natural setting nudism is allowed. This virgin beach is not very large, there are lots of headlands and rocks and fine-grained white sand, orientation toward east, strong winds in the summer with an important swell, so that bathing might be dangerous, crystal clear water, aswell as a sandy ground with seaweed and some rocky areas. The beach is not too crowded. This sandy area of Estany Pudent is separated from the old Salines d’en Marroig by the dunes, and this place has been delared Àrea Natural d’Especial Interès de ses Salines by the Parlament de les Illes Balears because of the natural richness in birds and landscape, aswell as Zona de Especial Protección para las Aves by the European Union. S’Estany Pudent has an area of 3,4 square kilometres and it is the only reservoir in Formentera of stagnating water, with a maximum depth of two metres, although an artificial channel provides water from the sea. The name is given by the bad smell of its liquid element. The accessibility by car is easy following the signs and the deviations. The last stretch continues on a track. The private car, the moped or the bicycle can be left on a free parking area in the surroundings. You can also reach this beach on foot from the nearby Platja de ses Canyes or from the village of es Pujols. When the beach has a lifeguard service, you must follow the lifeguards’ instructions and the warnings on flags. A red flag indicates dangerous swimming conditions and means that swimming is not permitted. A yellow flag indicates that precaution must be taken, but that swimming is permitted. A green flag indicates that swimming is permitted. An orange flag is used to indicate that the lifeguard is absent. Act cautiously when no lifeguard is present or the service is not available and enjoy the beach without taking any unnecessary risks. For health and safety reasons, the municipal ordinances ban pets on beaches. Information about this beach may change.
