Top Tips from the Author

During high-season local bands play music in the square at Cala Torret and outside Bar Paupa on the getty and there’s a local craft market every Thursday adjacent to the Fishermans village in Binibeca Vell.

The nearby supermarket Sa Botiga de S’Uestra, is approximately 3km north of Binibeca will save you cash on those resort based supermarkets and have an excellent fresh fruit/veg and meat section, perfect if you like to BBQ.

Like Tapa’s? Visit nearby town Sant Lluis and visit Bar Rueda for an extensive range of tapa’s and main dishes. Chips are amazing but we also recommend the meatballs, pork loin, Russian salad and calamari. They also offer a take away service.

Stopping in an apartment without a pool and too many jelly fish in the sea, visit El Faro in Binibeca Vell, they have a large swimming pool that paying visitors are welcome to use during the day.

The perfect picture… Whilst walking from Binibeca Nou to Binibeca Vell, half way down stop of at a villa’s gardens archway for a selfie or family snap overlooking the sea, gorgeous in late evening when the sun’s setting.
