Holidays in
Son Bou

Menorca’s biggest beach

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.

Your Son Bou questions, answered

Son Bou is a calm, laid-back town, but it does have some bars and clubs, plus plenty of restaurants where you can spend your evenings.

You’ll find plentiful facilities to satisfy both parents and children by the beach – and older teens will appreciate the variety of waterfront activities and sports.

There are lots of land-based diversions, including hiking, horse riding and cycling. Day trips to the capital, Mahon, and Alaior, 15 minutes inland by car, are also recommended.

Best things to do in Son Bou

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.
