Very nice long beach with white sand and cristal clear water, looking for tranquility, than this beach will be for you; far from noise and people, a little bit of paradise.

A secluded en very quite beach that strechtes for about 1 kilometer. Most if the time there is no lifeguard on duty, only in the high season one is availble. The walk to the beach along the coast from playa 'n bosch is beautiful (6km one way)

Another scenic cove in Menorca's endless list. Beware as there are two Son Sauras- one on the North Coast and one on the South. Both are beautiful sandy bays and worth a visit. Enjoy.

We went to this beach as a part of a boat trip. One look and it took our breath away. The water is extremely clear and the sand absolutely fine. You can expect to see nude bathers here. We loved every minute spent here. A must recommend for the beach lovers.

We travelled around Menorca with a car forn3 days and visited most of the popular beaches. We were surprised to find some of the remote beaches on the North and South coast very busy late September. We visited Marcarella and Marcaretta, Presilli, Pregonda Pregondo and after long walks, the beaches were too busy for us. We finally found Son Saura... More

Access to the beach is good. A narrow road takes you to a well kept parking area. A good view of the road ahead gives an opportunity to stop and allow passage of larger vehicles. There is no fee to park. The beach is long and allows for privacy. Nudism is not discouraged and so be prepared for this if... More

Went here on boat trip. The sand was white the sea turquoise but it stank of seaweed. Like rotten eggs there were loads of like sea urchins and black seaweed everywhere. Not hardly anyone on the beach and I wonder why. Praps we visited at the wrong time but didn't enjoy it at all.

Lovely shallow beach with a restaurant on the side which has good food. Only downside was the side we accessed from had loads of steps, but there is a ramp I saw on the other side of the beach.

Some tourists arriving at Son Saura think that the place is filthy mainly because it smells bad, although the water is crystalline. This is totally untrue. In reality the smell is due to the presence of a plant called Poseidonia Oceanica which is the main source of oxygen for the local ecosystem and protects the shore from erosion. The plant... More

Had a lot of fun, but not quite enough time... Plus make sure you take an umbrella for shade (or queue first for umbrellas leaving boat... They ran out early, but i think it was people being greedy rather than lack of umbrellas!)
