Red Son Bou
Red represents the sea food cuisine of Son Bou. With rich sauces used to dress the local catch, you can find genuine Menorcan fare to brighten your evening meals, and a variety of restaurants to choose from. You can also find red on your plate in the form of lobster: a local speciality, Caldereta de Langosta, which is a delicious lobster stew, is just one of the dishes to enjoy when eating out in the area.
Yellow Son Bou Holidays
As if you need telling, yellow is for sand and sunshine.
There are as few as sixty days each year when the sun doesn’t show its yellow face in the south of Menorca, and these should fall during the winter low season, so you can expect to catch plenty of rays during your Son Bou holidays. This abundance of sun keeps the local temperatures in the mid to high twenties, with summertime highs of about 30°C.
It’s the sand, however, that is the main draw of Son Bou. Holidaymakers come here to make use of the longest beach in the whole of Menorca. Even though it is a tremendously popular place to enjoy the sun and sea, its sheer size (at over two and a half kilometres in length) means that, with a little walking you can find an area of beach to call your own.
Where you have sand, you will often find sandstone. The geology of the Menorcan south coast is made up of sandstone rock. Because sandstone is vulnerable to erosion from the sea, the coastline waiting to be explored on Son Bou holidays is cut with numerous caves and inlets. The caves are attractions in their own right, and the inlets make secluded, sheltered havens.
Other sandstone formations are man-made, such as the prehistoric monuments, megaliths and ruined settlements that pepper the island. Some of these stone constructions have been dated back to the Bronze Age: evidence of the many diverse cultures that have chosen to occupy the island throughout its long history.
Blue, of course, is for the sea. The shoreline at the resort slopes gently into the Mediterranean, with the sand staying free of seaweed for a long way out. When the sun catches the clear water from the right angle it appears a brilliant turquoise, just as you would expect from a Caribbean paradise.
As the beach stretches for such a long way along the coast of Son Bou, holidaymakers can, in places, appreciate a panorama where the sea occupies 180 degrees of the view.
The Flag of Menorca
Together, these colours – red, yellow and blue – comprise the stripes and emblem on the flag of Menorca. You might see it fluttering overhead on a Son Bou holiday, as the gentle sea breeze eases in off the Mediterranean Sea.
