Platja de Son Xoriguer is 12 kilometres from Ciutadella, between Punta de sa Guarda and Titina. These two urban areas contribute to the fact that Ciutadella is the menorcan municipality with the most important tourist activity as it has more that half of the hotel places on the island.
This inlet is the shape of a shell and although it is not very big, this blue flag beach is partially sandy on the left hand side, The water is calm and the slope is gentle but there are some reefs next to the beach. It does become very crowded by local visitors and tourists, and lots of families. Close to this cove there is Cap d'Artrutx, the south western most area of Menorca, and the closest point to Majorca.
Access by car is easy just follow the signs. Private cars can be left on a free parking area in the beach area. You can also reach this beach by public transport.
For health and safety reasons, the local authority ban pets on beaches.
