Half way along the south coast of Menorca you will find a beach and water sports haven with over 3 miles of uninterrupted golden sand, known as Son Bou Beach, Menorca, upon which the resort of San Jaime stands. A Son Bou holiday home places you on the largest beach in the whole of Menorca, with great views all down its course, due to the fact there are no large hotels, just low lying, traditional villas in Son Bou, hidden among the pines and dunes.
If you take accommodation in Son Bou or San Jaime, you will undoubtedly feel the sand between your toes for a large proportion of your holiday. The fine golden sand beaches of the area could have been designed for postcards, with the gently sloping sands slipping gently into the rich blue of the Mediterranean, providing safe and warm waters for children to swim in. There is a clear flag system along the beach to alert you to currents in the area, but information on the system will be published in the resort, and in many of the self catering villas in Son Bou and San Jaime. Son Bou Beach is known as a naturist beach and the further you walk down it from accommodation in Son Bou, the fewer clothes are worn.
A self catering Son Bou apartment or villa acts as a great base for water sports too. Taking accommodation on Son Bou Beach means that you can check water conditions as soon as you rise from your bed, and rush down to the beach for windsurfing, water-skiing, jet skiing or sailing, or simply leave your Son Bou holiday home and head to one of the vibrant little beach bars which line the beach.
If you walk eastward from accommodation in Son Bou or San Jaime, you will eventually reach the Cap de Penyes, an ancient village of caves carved out of the headland. Also found here are the remains of a fortified village and the Christian Basilica of Ses Canessies, making a truly fascinating place to visit from a Son Bou holiday home.
An apartment in San Jaime, Menorca is ideal for family holidays. Everything you could require to have a comfortable family holiday is provided in the development, including supermarkets, restaurants, a medical centre and the San Jamie Club Water Park for children.
Taking a slightly more secluded villa in Son Bou, away from the commercial centre of San Jaime gives you a little extra privacy, and allows you to pick your spot on the beach, away from the crowds or close to a bar or water sports centre, depending on your whims when you wake up in your Son Bou holiday home!
