Es Caló de Sant Agustí

Beach Formentera, Spain

The Late Hub of the City Es Caló de Sant Agustí

Before the La Savina port was developed, Es Calo Formentera was the island’s main harbor. Although just 100 feet (30m) across it was selected by the Romans to export figs, and later as a place for the residents of La Mola to drop anchor. In fact, the village gets its name of Es Calo de Sant Agusti from the fact that the monks from La Mola used to moor their boats here, before heading up Cami Roma to their monastery. Right up until the 1920s it was used for shipping sandstone, charcoal and wood. Today you will see that is still used by a number of fishing boats, and as an old fisherman’s town it has the best fish restaurants in town: Pascual and Can Rafalet.
