Golden sunset at Son Xoriguer Beach

© all rights reserved

 

Please take your time... and enjoy it large on black

 

Just in front of our property complex there is a lovely footstep that goes around the sea front. A place where you can walk, go running, etc. and see the lovely calas, the lighthouse and the best sunsets in the Island. The beach Son Xoriguer is to die for; crystal clear waters lap gently along the pure white sand. They also provide an excellent water sport environment and good facilities. This is a cove that is open to the sea and is mostly frequented by families. Posidonia, a marine plant typically found in the Mediterranean, abounds under its crystalline waters. This beach can be reached from Ciutadella via the Cala'n Bosch road, after travelling around 11 kilometres. The focal point of the resort is without doubt its large man made marina, which is usually full of small to mid size yachts and other leisure craft. There are water sports businesses on Son Xoriguer beaches, which offer sailing and windsurfing lessons and equipment hire, catamaran sailing, canoeing and water skiing. Son Xoriguer Beach is a modern resort town with the beautiful harbour of Cala’n Bosch, which is the place to head in the evenings to soak up the lively atmosphere and enjoy a wonderful seafood meal. Menorca enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate, with often very warm temperatures even in the winter. The summer months are long and lazy, with plenty of sunshine to enjoy. During the summer Son Xoriguer is a large, lively and busy resort, however, once the summer is over and all of the tourists have returned home, the town then becomes like a ghost town.

 

We stayed in a little villa on Son Xoriguer Beach for the most relaxing holidays with the sea right in front of it and lovely surroundings. Relax with a glass of local wine and enjoy a golden sunset. Nice walks around the area for "romantic sunsets". The best ones from Menorca with Majorca Island at the background... you have to see it!.
