Overview of Menorca

Much smaller than neighbouring Majorca and much quieter than nearby Ibiza, Menorca is the most low-key of all of the Balearic Islands, and that’s precisely its charm. Holidays to Menorca hold promises of secluded beaches lapped by turquoise seas, traditional villages and modest resorts. Son Bou is one of the most popular resorts, where you’ll find plenty of attractions, restaurants and bars. It’s also surrounded by pristine nature, including a dramatic clifftop nature reserve and a long beach of fine, golden sand. Stay at Valentin Son Bou and you’ll have a great base from which you can explore this picturesque area.

Things to do in Menorca

If you’re staying at Valentin Son Bou, take advantage of the free shuttle bus to Son Bou Beach. It’s a great spot for jet-skiing, going out on the pedalos and even trying a banana boat! There’s also a diving centre in town if you fancy exploring Menorca’s colourful underwater world. Just beyond the sand dunes is a nature reserve, where you can look out for rare birds, such as the Booted Eagle and Egyptian Vulture. If that’s not your scene, you’ll be pleased to know that Son Bou also knows how to party. It’s home to many karaoke nights, tribute acts and cocktail bars. A holiday to beautiful Menorca proves that good things really do come in small packages. You’ll love exploring this sun-kissed island with friends and family, or simply relaxing on the beach. Boasting a large outdoor pool, sauna and fantastic restaurant, Valentin Sou Bou is the perfect place to stay and offers something for the whole family.

Resort Summary

Playa de Son Bou is the largest beach on the island and is home to everyone from sunbathers and naturists to watersports enthusiasts. You can spend your holiday relaxing on the unspoilt beach and exploring all that the Son Bou area has to offer.

The three kilometres of beach are bordered by stunning dunes and grassy reeds, with not a hotel in sight. You’ll be completely surrounded by Son Bou’s natural beauty while you sunbathe and enjoy the sound of the surf. And while you’ll be able to find the occasional beach bar along the way to the beach, you could always make a day of it and pack a picnic.

If you’re a fan of watersports there are tons of activities available for you to take part in, including riding banana boats, jet skis and going scuba diving in some of Son Bou’s underwater caves. The sea can get a bit choppy so look out for the red and green flags in the water that signify whether it’s safe to go in. If you’re keen to get rid of all your tan lines, the Western end of the beach is nudist friendly.
