"The sunlit island of Saint-Honoré. A tropical jungle engirdled with golden sands boasting the hemisphere's only English book shop and bar"
—A newspaper's description of Saint-Honoré

Saint-Honoré is a small island located in the Canary Islands, Spain. It is a popular tourist destination, boasting tropical jungles and golden sand beaches as well as the hemisphere's only English bookshop and bar. The island is named after St. Honoré, the patron saint of bakers and pastry chefs.

In 2002, Fran Katzenjammer, Manny Bianco and Bernard Black planned to visit the island for a holiday, however, due to their extremely tight budget of £4 per person, they only spent 4 hours there, before having to fly home again via several different countries.
