Beach description

The longest beach on Menorca is located 6,5 km away from Alaior. You can get to the azure beach by car or public transport. The main feature of Son Bou is its length. The coastline is 2,4 km long and 120 m wide.

The flat coast is covered in soft white sand that gets warm very quickly. That's why the beach is very popular among tourists who visit Menorca with young children. The descent is smooth, but the waves are quite strong, especially during windy weather.

A small island, Escull de sa Galera, is located about 300 m away from the shore, and you can go there if you rent a boat.

The edge of the beach attracts nudists, so if you're bringing children here, it's better to stay in the central part of the beach, equipped with everything a tourist needs for a comfortable vacation.

When is it better to go

The beach season on the coast of Spain falls on the period from May to October. The water and air temperature reaches the most comfortable levels, thereby guaranteeing tourists a perfect vacation.
