|About Son Bou|
Son Bou is located about 12 miles west of the capital, Mahon, but transfer times from the airport can vary from 20 minutes to an hour depending on time of day and individual tour operators.
Son Bou has the longest beach on the island, with almost 2 miles of white sand mostly protected by sand dunes. There can be dangerous off shore currents so swimmers must take care. The western end of the Son Bou beach is a haven for nudist bathers. Water sports facilities include scuba diving, sailing and wind surfing.
Children are well catered for with amenities such as a giant maze, called Laberinto, children’s play areas and water chutes.
Son Bou has reasonable shopping facilities including designer outlets, supermarkets and craft and souvenir shops. There are numerous bars and restaurants but entertainment is usually hotel based.
