The beach at the resort of Son Bou is Menorcas longest with an excess of 3 kms of soft sand shelving gently into the shallow sea making this resort very popular with families.

Arriving through a formidable tunnel hewn through the hillside,  the resort facilities greet you with restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes, open air bars and shops in appealing precincted plazas.  Down on the beach at this extreme eastern end of the bay, there are a couple of open air cafes serving drinks and meals throughout the day and into the evening. There are sunbeds and watersports and also two hotels, the resorts only buildings above two storeys

Down on the beach and looking west, golden sands disappear into the horizon, backed by a substantial area of protected dunes and lakes. Between these dunes and the beach proper, a sandy footpath delivers beachgoers via arched wooden walkways to various points along the beach. The further west you walk the number of holiday makers reduce in approximately equal proportions to the amount of clothes they are wearing. If you continue to walk beyond the western reaches just a kilometre further along the rocky coast takes you into the resort of Saint Thomas.

Rising up the pine clad hillside inland of the natural reserve lies a sophisticated villa and apartment resort of predominantly privately owned villas.  We have carefully chosen Villas that offer more in the way of privacy.

Inland the little town of Alaior has a few tapas bars and shops and it’s an easy drive of less than 15 mins to Es Mercadal where there is a choice between some very good restaurants.

Nothing is far away in Menorca and since Son Bou is fairly central to the south coast it is within 30 minutes’ drive of Mahon or Cuitadella or the north coast.
