Despite being a small beach of just 140 meters in length, Cala Saona is considered the jewel of the western coast of Formentera, being a cove surrounded by cliffs unlike the open beaches of the rest of the island. Its access is through ‘Sant Francesc’, heading towards ‘La Mola’, arriving by vehicle.
Always a favorite among visitors to enjoy the sunset thanks to its tranquility, while accompanied by a delicious drink in conjunction with their loved ones. The beach bars and ‘chiringuitos’ offer a hammock rental service if you prefer to enjoy the view like that.
As additional things to do, it has a wide variety of activities to practice such as Paddle Surf, kayak or snorkel. The surroundings of Cala Saona exude a classic Mediterranean atmosphere. Hotels and restaurants in the area offer various services quite accessible for tourists and the access to the beach is through a path in the forest surrounded by pine trees and stone walls and a wooden walkway installed to protect the dune system.
One of the main attractions of this cove is that it is, next to Illetes, one of the only two beaches on the island where you can contemplate the sunset. Here, the sunsets are truly spectacular. It is impressive to see how the sky and the cliffs that surround the cove are covered in reddish, pink and orange colors as the sun sets over the horizon.
But forget about it being a show for your eyes only. The sunset in Saona has become a classic in the island of Formentera, so there are many who come every afternoon to watch the nightfall on this beautiful and lively beach.
Tip: one of the best tours to do while there, is to visit Punta Rasa, where you will find some wonderful underwater caves.
