Playa de Son Bou, Alaior

(4.3/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Playa de Son Bou and other Alaior attractions using our handy Alaior trip itinerary maker.

  • Amazing Beach! I think the best around! Is a little breezy and water really transparent!

  • We were not in Beach season, but it is immense. Areas surrounded by trees and you can even see the Paleo-Christian Basilica in the East end of the beach

  • Beach surrounded by pine trees and tree under which surrounds much of Son Bou. In the Grove there are people enjoying the shade and eating admiring the blue sea and the seagulls flutter. Nice take a tour along the shore and thus meet the pulmenos of an air clean and fragrant, I'll be back.
