Son Bou, Menorca

son-bou

Son Bou is one of the multiple tourist areas of Menorca located only half an hour by car from our Insotel Punta Prima Resort Spa and Insotel Punta Prima Prestige Suites & Spa.

In this area you will find the beach of Son Bou, with its 3 kilometers long is the longest beach in Menorca. An extension of fine white sand with transparent and shallow waters.

In this area of the island you will find two beaches, one more oriented to tourism with multiple restaurants, access by car and other services, and the other a more virgin beach where you will only find sand, sea and lots of sun.

Why visit Son Bou?

It is an area of the island with an extraordinary beauty that also marks the beginning and the end to the two stages of Camí de Cavalls, an old path of 185 kilometers that surrounds the whole island and which is ideal for hiking, biking or horse riding.

Once on the beach of Son Bou, if you go west bordering the wet area you will reach the beach of Sant Tomàs. On the other hand, if you go east until you reach Cala en Porter, you will know the most abrupt part. An area with a captivating landscape and in which you will perceive the purest part of Menorca.

Without leaving this area, we recommend you to visit the remains of the Paleo-Christian basilica of Son Bou. A basilica with a rectangular floor plan built in the 5th century, located a few meters from the sea, is at the eastern end of Son Bou beach.

Another of its attractions is the Torre d’en Galmés, the largest Talayotic settlement on this island and one of the most important in the archipelago. The indications to get to the town from the beach are perfectly marked, so we recommend you to visit it after a beach day.

These are just some of the reasons why you should not miss this area of Menorca.

We hope you will like it and have a happy trip. We are waiting for you!
