Great Things to Do
If you can tear yourself away from the golden sands and azure waters, Son Bou offers up lots of opportunity to eat, shop and have laidback fun in the sun.
Get Your Binoculars Out
We’re not suggesting you take a closer look at the sun worshippers on the nudist beach to the west! Son Bou’s coastal nature reserve is home to all sorts of beautiful flowers and wildlife including booted eagles, moorhens and great white egrets. If birdwatching’s not your thing, make sure you at least feed the ducks.
Ride the Waves
It’s not just the long stretch of sand that marks Son Bou beach out as different to Menorca’s typical horseshoe shaped bays. Instead of the usual shallow, calm waters the sea gets choppy here, so if you fancy a trip on a banana boat, jet skis or just a chance to let the waves carry you back to shore, this is the place to do it.
Discover San Jaime
Take the 10 minute stroll to the San Jaime area, which is well known for Club Saint Jaime, a restaurant that provides pools and waterslides for the kids to wear themselves out on while you enjoy a leisurely meal in peace. There’s also an amusement arcade and nightclub here, making it party central for this part of Menorca.
Immerse Yourself in the Past
Even if you’re not a history buff, a walk to the well-signposted Roman Basilica, only 10 minutes from Son Bou’s centre, is well worth it to see this building that dates from 300 to 400 AD. If this whets your appetite for more ancient history, the prehistoric settlement of Torre d’en Galmes is only 10km away.
