Unlike most of the main beaches in Formentera, Cala Saona is narrow in width and deep in length, with fine white sand and a shallow access to the sea at the western end. It gets a lot of sun worshippers in the summer months so can be crowded near the water but there is plenty of room to stretch out further up.
The ochre and yellow cliffs are stunningly beautiful, with old fishing boat slips lining each side of the beach. Juan's kiosko on the south side is a favourite sunset bar, and restaurant Sol to the north is a busy and fun place for lunch or dinner (open April to September). Sol is also a favourite for the many boats that moor offshore in season. The Hotel Cala Saona at the top of the beach has a pool and wifi in the bar for those needing a splash of 21st century. Chacala, the other restaurant in Cala Saona, is beautifully placed for sunset drinks, and is under new management as of 2012 so should regain popularity after a decade of mismanagement.
Walk north along the cliffs toward Es Calo den Trui and several other coves for solitary bathing!
