Es Migjorn Gran is located a few kilometers inland on the South Coast. Approximately 30 mins. from the Airport. To get to Es Migjorn Gran you travel through beautiful country side. Mahon is about 40 minutes drive, and Ciutadella about 35 minutes.

Due to its remoter location Es Migjorn Gran remains a very small town with the least tourism influence on the island. Es Migjorn does not really have much to warrant a visit except as an access point to walks and adventurous walks to remoter virgin beaches ( Cala Fustram, Cala Escorxada and Playa Binigaus)

An easy bus visit for holiday visitors staying in the nearby beach resort of Santo Tomas, looking for a change of scene. It is typically Menorcan, where the old men gather to shake their heads at the new things in the world. Tourist accommodation in the town is very limited.

Es Migjorn Gran's biggest draw is that it is surrounded by grandiose and beautiful countryside, with many rural paths and single track roads ( Camis ) to explore. It is the starting point for drives or walks in to wonderful wood and valleys ( Binigaus ) and directly south of the town is the virgin beach of Binigaus.

Es Migjorn has a few Tapas bars, a couple of basic Cafe Bars, basic Cafeterias aswell as some charmimg restaurants which will be welcome addition to the limited offerings in Santo Tomas.
