Cala Pudent is situated at 11 kilometres from Fornells (located in front of the spectacular natural port which continues for four kilometres toward the interior) and one toward Mola de Fornells, located between na Tortuga and es Niu des Xiprès. The name is given by the bad smell from the mud which is characteristic for this coastal stretch. The beach is quite small (50 metres long) and it is the result of a narrow and deep sea inlet. This entrance is divided into two parts, with two very small sheltered coves. This coastal area is only appreciated by the fishers and is not for swimming.
The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring small boats are excellent. This coastal stretch is a good port for boats, although the wind blows from the northwest and east. The navigator is recommended to anchor in the north-western area of this cove, in front of the beach. You can also do this manoeuvre at the end of the cove or next to the place called es Varador d'en Xeca.
The accessibility by car is easy until the nearby Arenal de Son Saura following the signs and the deviations. The last part is in bad conditions. You are recommended to avoid driving through the dunes to park your private car near the water. From Son Saura you have to follow the coast to reach Cala Pudent.
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.
