Torre Soli Nou with its view over the white sandy beach of Son Bou

From your holiday house on the side of the Torre Soli Nou hill, you can go down to Son Bou beach, a large cove between Punta Rodona and Cap de ses Penyes, 5 miles (8 km) from Alaior. Son Bou is 1.8 miles (3 km) long, making it the biggest beach on the island of Menorca. This beach slopes gently into the Mediterranean Sea, which makes it ideal for families with young children. Part of the beach is reserved for nudists. The blue, crystalline water contrasts with the white sand, which gets its colour from the millions of calcified sea creatures. These organisms have been finely ground, giving the sand an excellent quality, making it softer underfoot. In the middle of the beach there is a rocky area where you should be careful with the strong undercurrents.
