Situated between Binibeca (Binibequer) and Punta Prima, Son Ganxo in Menorca was originally just a small fishing village. Over the years it has grown into a charming hamlet of quality houses in a peaceful location, and down at the waters edge you will still find the traditional fishing Llauts. Located at the southern-most tip of Menorca, many of Son Ganxo’s beautiful villas enjoy lovely coastal views including those across to the little island of Isla del Aire with its lighthouse. Son Ganxo has a lovely cove where you can dive and swim from the rocks; there is a swimming platform and a ladder down for the less adventurous! The small limestone island of Isla del Aire is popular for sailing, swimming and scuba diving (some of the best dive sites in Menorca are to be found here). The island is a haven for sea gulls and home to a very large population of black lizards, and the waters surrounding it are teeming with marine life.
The ‘road train’ which runs between Binibeca Vell (Binibequer Vell) and Punta Prima travels through Son Ganxo, providing car-free access to beautiful sandy beaches to the east and west. The large cove at Binibeca has fine white sand and a gentle gradient into the warm, shallow sea that make it a favourite for families with young children or non-swimmers. The popular family resort of Binibeca Vell is a short walk from Binibeca beach. At the other end of the road train route lies Punta Prima, which also has a safe sandy beach and its own resort centre.
The nearest town is Sant Lluis (San Luis), approximately 5 minutes by car, where there are banks, shops, quality restaurants and great local bars. The capital Mahon (Mao) and the airport are only 15 minutes drive from Son Ganxo.
