Binibeca Vell (ZB)

Binibeca Vell is situated at six kilometres from Sant Lluís (in this municipality it is still possible to walk along narrow and nearly unspoilt tracks around the houses like Torret or s'Ullastrar), located between Cala Binissafúller and Caló Fondo, as well as next to the village with the same name and near the residential area of Binibeca or Binibéquer (which is very interesting for tourists due to the particular arquitecture, designed by Antoni Sintes). From its coast you can see Escull de sa Barca and s'Illot de Binissafúller.

This bathing area is the result of an open u-shaped sea inlet, surrounded by low rocky areas and a steep coast. It is also characterized by being very small, rocky with no vegetation, and it is exposed to the swell and the wind from the southeast-south-southwest, with a steep slope, sandy ground in the middle and seaweed and rocks on the sides, and it is not very crowded by local visitors and tourists. The marine and underwater conditions for diving are excellent. This coastal stretch is sheltered and it has a ground covered by sand and seaweed.
It is also possible to anchor in the adjacent and safe Caló Fondo or in Cala Binissafúller, although it is not so safe.

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.

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.
