We have just returned from a second trip to Binibeca in two years. We stayed in different villas each time and I think they are all much of a muchness. There is no sandy beach in Binibeca Vell itself although the beach is only a couple of miles to the east. But there are fabulous coves which, in the Summer,... More

We returned to this unique place as tourists having had one of these unusual apartments as a holiday home for 4 years. It still is wonderfully atmospheric and attracts many visitors. Some of the restaurants have gone or changed hands but there is still enough to do here. The view is fabulous from the upper apartments and we spend many... More

It is lovely wandering round the mini maze of tiny alleys, but half an hours is enough time to do this. It is amazing to know that it is all modern yet is give the feeling of being so much older.

And it looks terrific! White painted walls, roof tiles, everything looks like you are in cartoon. Few restaurants, shops, bars in this artificial fishermen village. But it is worth visiting it, having a drink or even lunch and spend few hours there. Nice walk in narrow white streets to the harbor. Interesting!

This mock old fishing village built in 1968, is well worth a visit during your stay on Menorca.All the buildings are painted white even the teracotta roof tiles. Imaginative design of small passegeways some leading down to the bay. Smaller than expected so would be overcrowded in high season,bars and eaterys are in main street. Only worth a visit of... More

There is a warren of passageways leading through some small and intimate bars and restaurants. on the opposite side of the road from the bars and restaurants you can walk down to the front where there is a little harbour inlet which is really...

Binibeca Vell was built in the 1970s to resemble an old fishing village, yet it has the feel of somewhere that has been around much longer. With its clusters of tiny white-washed buildings and maze of narrow walkways, it really is an interesting place to wander around. It is generally quieter than other coastal settlements in the area such as... More
