Son Bou Beach is situated in the south of the island and is a firm favourite with families.
Son Bou is the longest beach in Menorca - nearly 3km of pale golden sand, making it ideal for sun bathing and water sports. The sandy beach shelves gently into the sea, which is generally safe for swimming. Ocean currents, however, can be strong at times and you should look out for warning flags.
The beach has several beach bars with a variety of water sports equipment available to hire including jet skis, pedaloes, windsurfing boards and snorkelling equipment.
Within the resort there are a range of bars, restaurants and several supermarkets. Son Bou features one of the island's few discothèques; the majority of night-life is relatively low key, being based around the restaurants, bars and hotels that offer scheduled entertainment.
San Jaime, Menorca is a purpose built resort on the Son Bou Beach, that caters very well for family holidays. All the necessary facilities are to hand.
