Son Bou – Menorca


Transfer Time – 50 minutes

Best For – Families and couples wanting a lively beach holiday in a stunning resort.

Son Bou is located on the southern coast of the island, backed by low lying hills and boasting the longest and prettiest beach on the island, its no wonder that this resort is one of the best selling family destinations and British holiday makers have been returning here for years and years.

Daytimes in Son Bou are usually spent on the wonderful beach, over 3 kilometres long, soft golden sand that shelves gently into the crystal blue waters, making it a wonderful and safe place for children to play and swim. The countryside is breathtaking and the views are fabulous. There are a good choice of sun loungers and parasols for hire and should you want a break from the midday sun, there is a few cafés, and beach bars offering cool drinks and lovely lunches. For those wanting water sports, there is a great water sports centre along the beach, with pedallos, jet skis, water skiing, para gliding and banana rides to name but a few. Others may fancy spending their days at the Club San Jaime, where you can wander around the shops, enjoy a meals or drink in one of the bars and restaurants and cafés and the kiddies will love the mini water park and maze.

Evenings in Son Bou can be as busy or as laid back as you wish, with so many bars, cafés and even a couple of discos, all offering a family friendly atmosphere and some even organise a varied entertainment programme for you. There are plenty of places to wine and dine, from fast food outlets and take aways, traditional restaurants and international restaurants, the choice is endless. For a change of scenery, we’d certainly recommend Cala ‘n Porter, a wonderful resort with some stunning night time entertainment, even a nightclub, made from natural caves.

Son Bou has so much to offer you but is also located in a great area for getting out an exploring the island. Everyone should try to take in the islands capital, Mahon, with many historical sights, great shops and souvenir stalls and of course a million places for a wonderful meal or drink. Ciudadela is another must see, with is masses of history and great shopping opportunities. Boat trips are a good way of getting round the island, not only do you see a lot of the island, you get access to some of the most amazing coves only reached by boat. Menorca has so much to see, Water parks are a great day out for all the family, Menorca has two of them.
