Binibeca Nou

Binibeca Nou is situated at six kilometres from Sant Lluís, located between Punta Binibeca and Cala Torret, as well as next to the village Binibeca or Binibéquer (very attractive for tourists due to the particular architecture, like an old village of fishers, designed by the architect Antoni Sintes). From its coast you can see Escull Illots de Binibeca.

This beach is the result of a large u-shaped sea inlet which is surrounded by low rocky areas. It is also characterized by being quite big, it has fine-grained white sand, a small system of dunes and fixing vegetation (scrubland) at the rear, it is exposed to the swell and the wind from the east-southeast, it has a gentle slope, calm crystal clear water, sandy ground with seaweed on the sides and it is very crowded by local visitors and tourists.
The marine and underwater conditions for diving are excellent. The navigator should know that there is a flagstone, dangerous and marked with buoys, Llosa d'en Caracol, located between the coves of Binibeca and Biniancolla, at four hectometres from the coast. Llosa d'en Caragol is at a depth of 20 metres and at two hectometres in the south and seven metres on the land side.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs and the deviations. The private car can be left on a free parking area in the surroundings. You can also reach this beach with the public transport during the summer season.

Municipality information Sant Lluís

The municipality of Sant Lluís is situated in the southeast of Menorca, at 50 metres above the sea level. This territory has lots of canyons (Rafalet, Biniparratx, Binisafúller and Alcaufar), as a result of the action of the torrents.

The urban centre of this municipality was founded during the short French domination (1756-1763), although the construction of the church was only begun (1761) with the avocation of the saint Louis IX, king of France. This is the origin of the name of this village, the octagonal form and the name of the streets. The territory is been used for agriculture for a long time, since the 18th century, as can be seen by the farmhouses, typical for the landscape of the municipality of Sant Lluís, like Binifadet, ses Barraques, es Pou Nou, es Consell, Torret, s'Ullestrar, Biniali, Caules, Torret de Dalt, Alcaufar Vell and Binissafúller d'en Moysi. Along its territory there are examples of medieval rural defense towers (square form) to resist the attacks of the pirates, like Talaia Grossa, one of the oldest of the island. There are also vigilance and defense towers of the coast (conic), built right on the coastline, like Punta Prima or Alcaufar.

Its cultural variety includes Binisafullet Nou (spectacular prehistoric settlement), es Pujol (talaiot); playing joc de bolla (similar to boules) or eating the typical dish, the soup oliaigua with tomato.
The municipality has 7 beaches.
