Playa de Son Bou, Alaior

4.5
#1 of 12 in Things to do in Alaior
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.

  • The truth is that it is not the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen on the island, since it seems much more to what we have on the peninsula. Grande Beach and long, full of people, umbrellas, etc. That Yes, the water is spectacular, very clear and nice and cool, and with enough waves (thing that my I love).
