Es Migjorn Gran is the perfect destination for peace, tranquillity and gorgeous Menorcan beaches. This sleepy, rural town is set in beautiful countryside, which you can explore along one of the many fantastic hiking routes. The town is set 3 miles inland from the coast, but you’ll find some wonderful, quiet and unspoilt beaches just a short drive away. These include the picturesque beaches in the small resorts of Santo Tomás and Son Bou, plus a string of charming coves. Es Migjorn Gran is only a half hour drive from the current Menorcan capital of Mahon (Maó in Mallorquí) on the east of the island, and the charming historic capital of Ciutadella on the west.

Your guide to Es Migjorn Gran holidays
If you want a taste of authentic Menorcan life, then head to the tranquil town of Es Migjorn Gran. A small whitewashed town with a clutch of local shops, cafés and restaurants, it’s geared towards locals rather than tourists – which is exactly why discerning visitors often choose it. It makes a great base for exploring the beautiful island of Menorca, with most of the top sights found within a short drive. There is a string of beautiful beaches just 5 minutes away by car, so you can soak up the sun or take a dip in the azure waters of the Mediterranean. If you fancy some bright lights, the island’s two biggest cities – vibrant Mahon and enchanting Ciutadella – are each only a half-hour drive away.
The nearest beach to Es Migjorn Gran is in the little resort of Santo Tomás, which has a lovely, sandy beach backed by Mediterreanean pines. It has a few useful amenities, including sunbed rental and parasols, as well as a handful of places to eat and drink within a short stroll of the beach. There are some spectacular virgin beaches in the area, most of which are accessed by foot along the coastal footpath. The nearest to Santo Tomás is the Platja de Binicodrell (‘platja’ means ‘beach’ in Mallorquí), which has little fishing boats pulled up on the golden sand, and beyond it the Platja de Binigaus, which has a beautiful backdrop of ochre cliffs and fine sand. Neither has any facilities, so bring a parasol, plenty of water and a picnic.
