Playa de Son Bou, Alaior

#1 of 7 in Things to do in Alaior
Beach Nature / Park
A 3-km (1.86-mi) stretch of golden sand, Playa de Son Bou qualifies as the longest beach on Menorca. Rent a lounge chair to relax in between swims in the calm, clear water. Pull up at one of the small bars for a refreshment. At one end of the beach, discover the ruins of a 5th-century church, the Basilica Paleocristiana de Son Bou. Nudists mix with clothed beachgoers here, but behavior remains appropriate.
