La Savina is the port of Formentera and is every visitor’s first point of contact with the island of Formentera. It’s also Formentera’s marina, which is generally packed with huge yachts throughout the summer.
For those of us not fortunate enough to possess a yacht and wise enough not to have brought their own car – this is where you hire your transport for the duration.
To this end one’s first impression used to be that this must be the place where the world’s mopeds were manufactured, as they stretched as far as the eye could see. In fact, so much so that the authorities have now clamped down on the rental companies to hide them away from view.
On a more picturesque note, La Savina is also home to the hippy market, which is open every day throughout the summer season.
