Cala Pudent, a turquoise water lake in the Mediterranean Sea!
Cala Pudent, a small cove of no more than 50 metres and golden sand. It is more or less halfway from cala'n Tusqueta and 1 km from the mola of Fornells, a quiet cove without any kind of services and totally unspoilt. It is not accessible by car and you have to walk from Son Saura del Norte along a path bordering the sea which usually takes about 20/25 minutes.
Its sandy bottom makes this beautiful place an idyllic corner for the anchoring of small boats. It is a place protected from all winds except those from the East, which means that we recommend that the sailor moor at the north-west cape of the cove, in front of the beach. It is also possible to moor at the bottom of the cove or next to a place called es Varador d'en Xeca. It impresses with the turquoise colour of its waters thanks to the colour of its sand.
We would like to mention that there are two small coves that we have (voluntarily) skipped due to their difficult access and which can be reached on foot from Cala Pudent following a path that crosses the Mola de Fornells or by sea from the port of Fornells itself (one of them can be seen from the other side of the bay, from the village itself). These two coves are Cabra Celada and s'Arenalet, which are very popular in summer because of their easy access by sea.
Returning to Cala Pudent, to reach this beautiful cove, we have to go from Es Mercadal or Mahon to Son Parc (the only golf course on the island of Minorca) and leave the car in the car park on the beach of Son Saura in the north. On the left, looking towards the sea, we will find a path, passing through a typical Menorcan barrier, which goes from the beach of Son Saura itself. I recommend that you do not leave the marked out paths, as the vegetation in this area is low, but very hard and resistant. Before reaching Cala Pudent, we will pass through es Macar de Cala Pudent, a small cove with rounded edges located just before Cala Pudent.
As usual, this is one of the coves that we usually recommend, if you stay overnight at Ca s'Arader - www.casarader.com or book through our e.mail - firstname.lastname@example.org, do not have any doubt that it will be a pleasure for us to recommend it to you so that you can forget the day to day and get to know this idyllic and beautiful place. We are waiting for you!
Ca s’Arader is named after Menorca’s artisan carpenters that used the wood from the indigenous wild olive tree to make all kinds of farming tools. In the olden days it was an essential role for the islands economy that was passed on from fathers to sons. Today, the few artisan carpenters or araders that are left, mostly make gates, tables, benches or stalls amongst other items.
