The Binigaus beach is very visited during summer season. It’s a virgin beach in the south of Menorca, very popular and with easy access by walking as well as by bike. The sand of Binigaus is white and fine and the water has its characteristic turquoise color.

When the south wind blows, waves of considerable size are formed, as the beach has a wide open shape. There are no services in Binigaus, but you can go to the beach of Santo Tomas at 10 or 15 minutes walking, right next to Binigaus, where you can buy beverage and food.

How to Get There

To arrive to Binigaus, there are two main routes. The first one is leaving the car in Santo Tomás, and go from Santo Tomás to Binigaus. This route can be made easily by walking or by bike going through the popular Camí de Cavalls (Path of Horses).

The other route, for the adventurers ones, consists on arriving to the beach from Es Migjorn Gran. This excursion can be made by walking as well as by bike, and you can also enjoy the beautiful views of the gorgeous Cova des Coloms (Pigeons Cave) during the route. The route is the same that you have to make to go to Cala Escorxada from Es Migjorn Gran.
