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.

  • It is an ideal beach to go with people that does not have facility to be able to walk or to go with carts of babies, transparent waters.

  • A really nice beach, if you like to walk, the only long, reaches a few kilometres: there are also the remains of an early Christian basilica on its shores. But beware, it is in what the Spaniards call "urbanizacion", which is a tourist place, full of clubs and shops and, ugly, wrecked by two towering hotel seventies that spoil the skyline. Then go for it just to stroll and swim!

  • A lovely place to visit stretching for miles backed by the Sand Dune Reserves and in the evening from where to watch the Sunset sinking into the sea  more »
