Come for the sun and stay for the fun in Son Bou, home to Menorca’s longest beach. Boasting nearly 3 kilometres of golden, sandy shoreline, this south-coast town delivers on promises of relaxation and natural beauty. Whether you’re keen to simply chill out on the beach or to head out on the water aboard a jet ski or canoe, Son Bou holidays are perfect for enjoying family time or a romantic break.
The main district is a modern resort with all the amenities and restaurants visitors need, while the remains of a 5th-century, early-Christian church add a touch of culture to this beach town. Nature aficionados, meanwhile, will want to explore the wetlands and reed beds behind the beach to observe the diverse bird species that call the island home. Holidays to Son Bou are all about living the good life in Spanish style.
Take the plunge
Maybe you’ll scuba dive, maybe you’ll snorkel, maybe you’ll try a banana boat – no matter how you do it, be sure to get out there and enjoy the beautiful Mediterranean water.
Visit the ruins
Make time to explore one of the island’s oldest religious monuments, the Basilica Paleocristiana de Son Bou, which lies in ruins just beyond the town.
Stretch out in the sand
With all that beachfront on offer, it shouldn’t be difficult to claim your spot on a sunlounger to soak up some rays in a picturesque setting.
