Menorca’s beaches are beautiful, but this island also hides other treasures; Binibèquer Vell is one of them.
Binibèquer Vell is a fisherman village of about 8000 meters, built between 1964 and 1972, located in the south of Menorca in the municipality of Sant Lluís.
The village with 165 white and adorable houses is fully restored and ended in a small jetty.
It is a place with lot of personality; the houses are adapted to the uniqueness of the place and many of its walls are irregular.
Although some people labeled it as “theme park for tourists”, I love to lose myself in its narrow streets, which are like mazes.
You will see that there are many signs asking for silence, as there are people living inside these houses, and if we speak loudly it’s is annoying for them, especially in summer when there are many tourists wandering the streets.
If you plan to come in summer, I would recommend you visiting in the late afternoon, when is not so hot. It is pleasant to walk and there are restaurants, so you can drink a good cold beer and you can even stay for dinner.
If you want to seize the day in the area, you can go to the beaches near the village; Binibeca, Binisafuller, Biniancolla and Biniparratx.
If you plan to come in winter, then you can enjoy the tranquility of the place, because almost no one comes to this area, but keep in mind that everything is closed, so you must bring your own food and drinks.
I prefer to come in the summer, because I like the atmosphere at that time.
It’s funny that when I go to places surrounded by nature, I like to go in moments when nobody goes, but when I visit villages and cities, I like to go when there is more movement and activities.
Anyway, whenever you’ll go, do not forget your camera, it is a perfect place to take great pictures. 📷
How to get to Binibèquer Vell
The village is about 8 kilometers from Mahon. It is easy to find, and is accessible by car.
Go to Sant Lluís and from there follow the signs to Binibeca or Binibèquer and then take the diversion to Binibèquer Vell.
Love and gratitud
