Fun, services and a break right by the beach
The urbanization of Sant Jaume is right beside the Son Bou beach. Most of Alaior’s tourist accommodation is located here, meaning that there is varied range of services. In addition, access to the beach is simple and can easily be done on foot.
The best venue for a family break
This third tourist area within the urban nucleus linked to the north of Son Bou beach is the urbanisation of Torre-solí Nou. The accommodation on offer in this area is a mix of hotels and holiday homes with their own swimming pool. A good option if you are looking for tranquillity and comfort on a family holiday.
Cala en Porter
Observe the sea from high up
The urbanization of Cala en Porter is 11 kilometres from Alaior and is also on the south coast of the island, and here the most significant difference is in the landscape. Where the area comprising Son Bou, Torre-solí Nou and Sant Jaume is a plain which finishes with the longest stretches of sand on the Menorcan coast, Cala en Porter is protected by sheer and soaring cliffs on each side of its beach. The landscape is stunning, and it also links with various other routes. There is a varied mix of accommodation in Cala en Porter, ranging from hotel rooms to tourist apartments and villas to suit everyone’s requirements.
