Kayaks ( space for three ) and electric fun boats ( 25 Euro 1/2 hour ) available to hire from beach. Sunbed and umbrella hire.

(updated Jan 2024)

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. Despite proximity to Airport there is litlle aircraft noise as most arrive/depart to the north.

The quiet and idyllic resort of Binibeca is a very popular smaller 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 and a few low-rise Aparthotels.

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.

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.
