Shallow water and almost no waves. Very clean sand. Lots of space, but get here early if you want to be close to the water or rent a chair/umbrella.

You have already gone to Illetes, now your next must stop is Cala Sahona. The seabed is also clear, but with a unique color, more like turqoise. Less crowded than other places, it is worth going.

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!

This is a beautiful bay and, theory, ideal swimming for families in particular. However- the beach is now packed with sun loungers etc and we almost had to climb over people to get to the sea! The water there was also not as clear as elsewhere, presumably due to all the bodies (and sun cream) in it. A shame as beautiful otherwise.

I'm Italian.
...go on the stones a few meters from the beach to the right. You can go walking, by scooter, car or even swimming.
Cala saona itself is nice but crowded, just a replica of Illetes. The stone to the right are really the best in the island. Take a sun unmbrella with you, no sun repair.
Lot of nudist, most people cover themselves with argilla, let it dry and them swim to wash: seems very funny!
