Son Bou is an excellent place to go windsurfing. Good winds, clear water, and relatively few rocks make it popular with windsurfers who are staying nearby, and with a beach this long, there is enough space that no one need feel crowded out. The two beach shops that are located on the beach can rent out windsurfing equipment if you are keen, and you also have the opportunity to take lessons if you are new to the sport.

Jet Skiing

If you want to experience something a little faster than windsurfing, there are also plenty of jet skis that can be hired for adrenaline junkies looking to get their fix in Son Bou. The still clear waters that make it ideal for windsurfing also make it a great place to go jet skiing, so if you prefer to be powered by petrol rather than by wind, this is the activity for you.

If windsurfing and jet skiing sound a little too much like hard work, there s always the option to hire a pedalo to get out on the water in a more relaxing fashion. You can hire a pedalo from many points along the beach, and they are particularly good for families looking to get out on the water together in a safe and straightforward way.


With the beach running uninterrupted along nearly two miles of gorgeous coastline, it is fun and easy to walk the entire length of it and see the sights as you go. If you d like to venture further afield, the surrounding area is filled with caves, cliffs, and peaceful walking paths to explore. Son Bou villas are usually located close by to many established walking paths, and so you can carefully plan your walks or simply wander off the beach when something interesting catches your eye.
