Son Bou Holidays 2022
Looking for a relaxing holiday in the sun? A chance for some peace, serenity – to slow down, chill out, do things at your pace, on your schedule? To savour the warmth on your skin or the sound of a crystal blue sea gently lapping over golden sands?
If any of this sounds like your kind of vacation, then Son Bou Holidays in Menorca might just be the perfect choice for you.
Peace and quiet are not often associated with holidays to the Balearic Islands where the popular resorts of Majorca and Ibiza positively buzz with frenetic 24 hour life. But Menorca, one of the 4 main islands of the Balearics, moves to a different, altogether more sedate beat.
And that, frankly is its real charm.
Menorca is a haven for lovers of scenic coastlines – from tiny curved coves, where the crystal waters of the Mediterranean gently laps against a crescent of golden sand beneath craggy, floral covered cliffs faces, to long expanses of soft, sandy beachfront, perfect for whiling away sultry days with a good book. Menorca’s main resorts are all based around the spectacular coastline that borders the entire island be it the long beach at Son Bou, the delightful bays of Cala Galdana, Cala’n’Bosch or others. And, although the emphasis is on the more serene side of things, that doesn’t mean they’re devoid of life with each resort offering charming cafes and restaurants and opportunities to savour the unique vibe that Menorca has to offer.
At Son Bou Holidays .co.uk we’re able to provide the perfect Menorca holiday for you with a selection of fabulous, top quality villas throughout the island, whatever the size of your party. Villa holidays are the ideal way to truly capture the magic of this stunning Mediterranean island, affording you the opportunity to do things your way, at your pace, surrounded by all the comforts of home.
If you’re in search of a quiet, relaxed and sun-filled holiday by the beach then Son Bou in Menorca should be at the top of the your list.
With its long stretch of golden sandy beach and gentle swell of the aquamarine Med lapping at its shore Son Bou offers an idyllic island escape for beach lovers young and old. Lounge out and catch the rays in the relaxed atmosphere of the beach, kicking back with a good book; or maybe head to one of the many beach bars and cafes to sample a bottle of something cold and bite to eat. Perhaps you’re wanting to enjoy the refreshing cool of the sea, the calm waters perfect for swimming, the range of watersports activities available to tempt the more actively inclined.
Whatever your fancy, Son Bou makes for the perfect getaway, a place to recharge the batteries, indulge in some sun-filled fun and let your worries slope off into the sunset.

The beach at Son Bou is the longest on the island - some 3km of golden sands. The government have recently put up rope fencing around the dunes to deter access, as part of their dune regeneration programme. There are three beach bars, which serve food and drinks, including the popular Spanish dish, originally from Valencia: Paella.
The sandy, safe bathing beach is very popular with naturists of all ages and nationalities, who mix comfortably with 'textile' beach users. Naturists generally use the beach section away from that most accessible from the resort, but this is still the greater part of the beach running west towards the smaller resort of San Tomas. It is also the quieter part of the beach, although much of it does not benefit from the presence of a lifeguard.
Behind the beach is an extensive area of wetland, comprising open water and reed beds. This is a protected nature reserve containing many species of birds, amphibians and insects. Unfortunately, the latter include mosquitoes, which can be a minor annoyance in the evenings.
There are many Bars and Restaurants in Son Bou, several of which have adopted a British style, others choosing international cuisine, including Chinese. There is a restaurant to suit everyones pocket in Son Bou. There are of course a range of Spanish and Menorquin restaurants, which serve quality dishes.
Son Bou has many attractions, including the Basilica Paleocristiana de Son Bou (a early Christian church of the 5th century, whose remains were discovered in 1951). Every year, thousands of tourists visit the island and many people choose to stay in Son Bou. During the six months of the holiday season most nights you can find shows in most bars and clubs and on other nights there are quizzes and karaoke.
Outside of the holiday season, the Son Bou resort is very quiet as most facilities are shut down during the winter months.
Son Bou is a holiday resort of mixed private/commercial Villas,Apartments and hotels built behind a nature reserve along the island's longest beach.
