Son Bou – The Resorts of San Jaime and Torre Soli Nou
Son Bou is situated in the Alaior region of Menorca, an island in the Balearics. This beautiful area hosts thousands of tourists each year, and holidaymakers flock to the region for a summer Son Bou holiday. There are many properties to choose from, where you can enjoy the island from the peace and quiet of your villa, or join the tourists on the beautiful beach perfecting your tan and enjoying the sunshine.
Why Choose This Destination?
There are several reasons why Son Bou holidays are such a popular choice among tourists. For a start, the beach is superb. The longest beach on the island, it is 2.5km 2.5 miles long and over 100m wide. Whatever sort of beachside day you’re after, the beach is long enough to provide a wide variety of choice. If you want the busy summer atmosphere, life guards and shops nearby, there is the buzzing tourist section of the beach. But if you want a little bit of peace and quiet, there are more deserted spots about a 10 minute walk from the beach entrance. Naturists enjoy these quieter areas of the beach, but if you just want a bit of tranquillity, these spots could suit you well on your Son Bou holiday.
The popular area of the beach has all ingredients for a relaxing day of sun and sea. Sun beds, umbrellas and beach activities are all available throughout the day, and you can soak up the sun in comfort. The beach has three bars, all providing excellent views and great spots to sip sundowners as the sun sets over the ocean. If you want a quite beachside meal, you can enjoy Spanish local dishes such as Paella served at the bars. All this makes for a good day of sun while on a Son Bou holiday, and at the end of the day your Son Bou villa will only be a short walk away to return to.
The area has two zones – San Jaime and Torre Soli Nou.
San Jaime is the larger of the two zones and is a busy tourist destination. It is situated close to the beautiful, stretching beach, and is set amongst pretty pine trees in a wooded village on a hill. The Son Bou villas here are situated not only close to the sea, but close to the amenities of the San Jaime Complex. Particularly good for families on Son Bou holidays, the San Jaime complex consists of a children’s playground, tennis courts and a maze, which all make for entertaining afternoons for the whole family. There is also a pool and a waterchute. You can take a swim in the pool when you want to rinse off the salt and sand from a day spent on the beach, and children will have endless hours of fun with the waterchute.
You can also take a ride on the ‘fun train,’ a trip which will take you to the top of the resort, and then chug along back down the beach, affording great views of the coast and the beautiful surrounding inland areas. This is a great activity when you want to stay close to your Son Bou villa, and makes for an afternoon of fun.
Torre Soli Nou
While you can still enjoy all the activities that the San Jaime complex has on offer, if you are in search of a quieter Son Bou holiday, Torre Soli Nou is the right resort for you. This newer resort has luxury Son Bou villas situated in a wooded area (in a similar style to San Jaime), where you can expect to enjoy beautiful views of the sea and coast from your deck.
Situated further away from the beach, this resort offers a quieter retreat when you’re on a Son Bou holiday. You can enjoy the peace and quiet, the fresh ocean air, and the privacy of your Son Bou Villa. And when you want a bit of excitement and entertainment, San Jaime is only a short walk away.
