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

Nice place to have dinner and buy a view souvenirs. I have got some amazing photos from our trip to Binibeca Vell and we enjoyed... More

I stayed in Binibeca for a week on holiday and visited Binibeca Vell regularly. The narrow walkways and covered white washed buildings are fantastic to explore. We did have children with us but I can see why they would love it here. We visited the supermarket and its very well stocked if you're staying in the area. The bars and... More
