Formentera was the last "hot" holiday with my family. After the two successful holidays on La Gomera (I chose the destination that time...I was only 11!), it was down to me again to choose the summer 1993 holiday...my suggestions of Gambia and the Caribbean went down like a tonne of bricks, but Formentera seemed to get a better reaction. We settled on two weeks at the Hostal Cala Saona.

I am a fan of islands, particularly small and remote ones...while Formentera is certainly not remote, it wasn't exactly on everyone's lips, and it definitely qualified as small. Reached by boat from its bigger brasher neighbour, Ibiza, Formentera is a paradise for beach lovers and lazy cyclists...and, much to my Mum's surprise and my dad's delight, nudists!

It was very much a beach holiday, but we did hire mopeds and a car to tour the island, and found that there is a lot more to Formentera than first meets the eye.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great beaches, quiet and laid-back

    Transport is required if staying at Carla Saona it is a great hotel and the bay is superb but Formentera holds so much more and you need a car , moto or bicycle to discover the true island

    Surely Spain is in top of my agenda for next year after Easter. Good work.
