Binibeca Location

is located on the south east coast. Approximately 15 mins., from the Airport. There is no aircraft noise. Binibeca or Binibequer ? The correct name locally is Binibequer and many road signs will use this name. Most english guide books (and the english ) will refer to it as Binibeca. Around this area you will often see 'Bini' used in places names reflecting the Moorish occupation (Bini means 'belonging to the son of…' from Ben Arabic for son.

Overview

The quiet and idyllic resort of Binibeca is a very popular quieter resort on the beautiful south coast of Menorca, and is a perfect choice for holiday makers wanting to escape the noise and crowds of other more developed areas. You will not find any skyline destroying hotels or large holiday complexes here, most accommodation being in private villas and apartments which are ideal for those seeking a break that feels like a 'home from home'. There is a low rise apartment hotel ( Eden Hotel ) at the western end ideal for couples not looking for full board.

Airport Transfers: Unless there are more than 5 of you or you need to order a child seat your best option is a Taxi from outside.( children must be in seat by law,but airlines carry them FOC )

Taxi one way is about 22 Euro.

At one end of this stretch of coast is Binibequer Vell, a small apartment resort in the style of an old mock fishing village and which offers a range of bars, shops and restaurants in interesting surroundings. At the other end, where the beach is located, lies Binibequer Nou and neighbouring Cala Torret. The beach at Binibeca is a lovely deep beach with gently shelving sands in a quiet cove, offering safe bathing for all.

While the resort is quiet ( even by Menorcan standards) and perhaps more a place to chill it is close (by bus, taxi) to Punta Prima (by resort train) , Mahon and Es Castell for much more attractions, buzz and a change of scene.

Beach

An attractive, deep, fine white sand beach with shaded picnic area at rear and free toilets. Free parking at the rear and at the roadside. The beach waters are protected via a headland on the horizon. Perfect, shallow sandy bottomed and lined on both sides by rocks for great snorkeling. The beach bar of Los Bucaneros (converted fishermans hut ) even serves freshly cooked basic meals as well as snack and hot and cold drinks. Lifeguard. Kayaks ( space for three ) and electric fun boats ( 22 Euro 1/2 hour ) available to hire from beach. Sunbed and umbrella hire.

Behind the beach Ice cream, crepes and other food and drink is available.

The warm shallow waters of this bay make this resort very popular with families with younger children. Though the beach is big enough if you need your space away from the little beach rats.

Menorca Holiday Tips

Big fish shoals hover in front of the Bucaneros outside terrace area for bread, and make for great underwater fish encounters and pictures.

Banks can be found in the local town of San Lluis. Ten minutes drive or so along the coast is S'Algar a favourite water sports and diving centre.

Live music features at Bar Paupa in Cala Torret (5m from beach ). Relaxing ( cocktails ) lounges at Sa Naveta and Sa Cova.
