Platja de Son Xoriguer is situated at 12 kilometres from Ciutadella, located between Punta de sa Guarda and Titina, as well as next to the village with the same name and next to the residential village of Cala en Bosc. These two urban areas contribute to the fact that Ciutadella is the menorcan municipality with the most important touristy activity, because it has more that half of the hotel places of the island.
