If tradition and authenticity are high on your list of holiday priorities, then you'll find a break in Binibeca in Menorca extremely rewarding.
Spread out along a sparklingly attractive stretch of coastline towards Binisafua and Binnidali, the village was purpose-built as a recreation of an authentic Menorcan fishing village, complete with the dazzlingly white compact houses and narrow cobbled lanes which weave among them.
But despite offering a true taste of Menorca past, Binibeca is still close to the throbbing heart of this island. Its capital, Mahon, is just five miles away if you want to slip back into the fast lane and enjoy Menorca's party spirit.
Binibeca's star attraction, though, is its beach, with its white sands and warm, shallow waters which are very family-friendly. Sunbeds and pedalos are available to hire, and there is a small bar behind the beach. If you're seeking a little more seclusion, seek out one of the numerous sheltered coves just a little further around the coast.
Diving is very popular on a Binibeca holiday, while nearby stables in Sant Climent also offer horse-riding...
There are a few hotels catering for Binibeca package holidays, but most accommodation here is in private villas or apartments.
As a result, a number of supermarkets are on hand to cater for all the needs of self-catering visitors, as well, of course, as the many permanent residents.
The nightlife in Binibeca is laid-back, and although there are a number of bars and small clubs, their atmosphere reflects the quieter nature of the resort, and they do not stay open late.
A hire car is highly recommended if you come on a Binibeca package holiday or Binibeca self-catering holiday
Because of the enduring popularity of the village with British visitors, Binibeca holiday deals and holiday offers can be found regularly - and when you do, you'll consider it well worth it!
