Beach in Sant Lluís
Picture postcard coves and rural beauty in Minorca
Sant Lluís is in southern Minorca, just a few kilometres from the capital, Maó. It is most noteworthy for its varied coastline, with fine sand beaches and cliffs. Here you will find the beautiful coves of Binissafúller, Biniancolla and Binibeca, with their typical whitewashed fishermen's houses. There are capes and islets, and medieval defensive towers all along the coast, very characteristic of the island. You will also find old rural farmsteads, typical examples of Minorca architecture, and remains of prehistoric "talaiots" (Megalithic constructions) such as at Es Pujol. Then there are old windmills, like Molí de Dalt, home to the Ethnological Museum. Many country tracks and trails run through the village, ideal to explore on foot or by bike.
