Son Bou holidays are the total Menorcan package – beachside days, leisurely nights and plenty of sights by land or sea.
Super Son Bou
Enter this sandy treasure trove hiding behind a sleepy town in Spain
's Balearic Islands
. While it's definitely a haven for wave-chasers, this southern Menorcan
resort has a lot of variety to offer. Whether you prefer lazily sipping cocktails by the beach or exploring the green countryside, Son Bou delivers.
Son Bou might be laidback, but it's anything except low-key. Get a memorable ride at the beachside Horse Riding Centre, or go beneath the tranquil waves with guided cave and wreck diving. You can also tour around the Menorcan coast by banana boat, or just float offshore on a pedalo to watch the sunset.
There's plenty of options for recharging once you've dried off. Son Bou's big star's the expansive sandy beach – it's perfect for strolls or sunbathing. The area also features Roman ruins with ocean views. When the sun sets, have your fill of easygoing nightlife and beachside drinks at the bars lining the shore.
Talk of the towns
The areas of Alaior and Mahon
are both under 20 minutes' drive away, but boy are they different. Historic Alaior's got cheesemaking tours and visits to the local donkey rescue centre. Head to Mahon and you're greeted with a bustling harbour, grand monuments and urban shopping opportunities.
