Son Parc – Menorca

 

Transfer Time – 40 minutes

Best For – families and couples wanting a lovely beach and laid back atmosphere

Holidays in Son Parc will give you a wonderful resort, tucked away on the north coast of the island, with stunning natural scenery and a beach to make anyone envious. Son Parc is home to Menorc’s only golf course, and although this is a championship course, they allow beginners to go round and even offer tuition for those who require it. A great destination for a getaway break.

The beach in Son Parc is a beautiful white sandy affair, which gently shelved to the sea and its crystal clear water. The beach is perfect for children to play with the surf being calm and the water shallow and warm, its also perfect for swimming and snorkelling too. There are plenty sun loungers and parasols to relax on and under and the beach still feels uncrowded, even during high season. For a refreshing drink or a spot of lunch, there is a lovely selection of cafés, restaurants and beach bars available behind the beach and a larger choice in the village centre. For those with lots of energy, Son Parc has a great range of water sports on offer, jet skis, para gliding, pedallos, kayaks, banana rides and ringos, to name but a few.

Evenings in Son Parc are relaxed and laid back. The bars and cafés all welcome children and some offer a varied evening entertainment, however most of the hotels and complexes in this area will have some form of entertainment on for you too. There is a good selection of restaurants serving lovingly prepared local produce, fish is very popular, and some have a more international menus, such as Chinese, Italian and Indian, although the resort has a very traditional theme. There is a handful of shops and souvenir stalls in the village too but a short taxi will take you into Mahon, the islands capital, where you will find a much livelier night-life and more shopping in the cosmopolitan

Son Parc is difficult to leave, but so well postioned to get out and about on the island of Menorca. Everyone should try to fit a day or night in Mahon, with its endless historical sights, shops and cafés and bars, winding streets and beautiful harbour, where you can sit back and watch the world go by. Ciudadela is a must too, especially if you like history and architecture, oh and shopping of course!! Menorca has 2 fabulous water parks, with chutes and slides and water fun, they will keep young and young at heart occupied for hours, a great family day out. Boat trips are a great way of exploring the island, take a glass bottomed boat and see the beautiful sights under the sea or maybe a sunset trip and visit some wonderful resorts on route. Car Hire is another easy way to explore, Menorca has so much to offer, get out and have a look, you wont be disappointed.
