|Son Parc - a place for you?|
Son Parc is a purpose built self contained holiday resort set in an area of valleys and pine woods with hill side views into the islands' attractive northern countryside. It is geared towards couples looking for a quieter relaxing beach location and those with young families.
The resort has three distinct areas ( see interactive photo map below ). Further inland at the main access road is the golf course and here you will find a development of private and commercal apartments overlooking the course (Green Village). Driving further to the resort centre you can turn left to beach area or right into the terraced and wooded hill sides is where most of the private villas are located in quieter locations. On the rocky headland is a mix of low rise commercial hotels,aparthotels and private apartments.
The very natural beach of 'Arenal de Son Saura' lies just below the resort's accommodation areas, with its deep soft white sands providing plenty of space. Add to this a gently shelving bottom that makes for very shallow waters many meters out makes it ideal for smaller children and wonderful for snorkelling enthusiasts with it s rocky fringes. The beautiful virgin beach of Cala Pudent is reachable on foot (1km) from a coastal path begining at the western end of the resort beach.
Superb large fine sand beach set in a dramatic dune landscape looking out to a natural bay for an almost virgin beach feeling. There are lifeguards and watersports available including windsurfing, water skiing, jet skis and pedaloes hire. The extensive sand dunes behind the beach are protected so it is very natural and the building restictions means that access is restricted to eastern or western ends which makes it very natural for a commercial holiday resort. The beach lies in a protective bay so provides shelter from northerly waves. There are two beachside Bar Restaurants at the western and eastern ends of the beach respectively. There is a free car park at the western end including additional toilets
The beach is reachable from three access points - see interactive map and photo tour.

Son Parc - Nightlife
As with most resorts in Menorca, evening entertainment here is generally to be found in the resort bars but nothing that would ever compare to the neon jungle of the popular resorts along the south coast of Majorca. Mahon and Ciutadella however offer something for everyone, but with none of the "binge drink clubbing" to be found on Ibizia and Majorca.
In the resorts there are various bars and restaurants with differing catering to clientel both young and old. Mahon is a taxi ride away offering a wide selection of evening delights and into the early hours discos, clubs and bars.
