View Son Bou in a larger map
My first holiday in Menorca was at Son Bou, perhaps that is why this beach is one of my favourite beaches. However I like to think that my feelings are more analytical. The beach at Son Bou is golden sand which goes on for over a mile. All the way to San Thomas in fact.
This is one of the southern beaches which is well served with good facilities at the eastern end although the further west you go the less developed it becomes. In this area nudists congregate on this unofficial beach.
In the east the beach is backed by Son Bou itself and a vast car park. This combination makes the eastern end of the beach very crowded especially at the weekend when tourists are joined by locals all seeking a place to settle on the foreshore.
