A Brief Guide to Santo Tomas Holidays

You’ll discover the home of Santo Tomas holidays less than thirty kilometres from the airport, hidden beyond green gorges and rolling hills. As you reach the coast, you’ll travel between the pretty villas that are dotted above the shore, and from here your eye will be drawn to the sea.

Santo Tomas Holidays make use of a lovely stretch of beach. The sand eases gently into the Mediterranean waters so that the crystal sea blends from turquoise to sapphire blue. The pale sand is enclosed by tree-lined rocky promontories at both ends, giving the resort a sense of pleasant seclusion, and you won’t have to share your Eden with too many others; Santo Tomas is a relatively quiet and peaceful area, perfect for relaxing and sunbathing, and of course for a dip in the sea.

Along the beachfront there is a curving paved walkway and a number of wooden boardwalks for easy access. You’ll find a beach bar close by, where you can sit and enjoy the view while refreshing your Santo Tomas holidays with a cool drink. Next to the bar is a restaurant positioned on the headland over the breaking waves.

Beyond this outcrop is a line of beach called Sant Adeodat. This beach is not as deep as the one at Santo Tomas but these narrow sands run for several miles westwards along the Binigaus bay, providing a pleasant walking route for you to explore.

About three miles in the opposite direction, to the east, is Son Bou, a more urbanized resort than Santo Tomas. Holidays here tend to be lively and you may want to visit Son Bou for the water sports, the several water parks, or for the shopping, although you should find most of the shops you need on a Santo Tomas holiday within reach of your villa.

The accommodation for your Santo Tomas holidays will be the luxury villas a short walk up from the beach. These are generally spacious, detached properties, each individual in character or furnishings, and each with a private pool. You can expect modern facilities like Satellite TV, microwave and dishwasher and many have a barbecue. With terraces surrounded by lawns, you’ll want to cook up a barbecue in the afternoon, so you can enjoy your food as the elevated position of the luxury villa provides impressive views of the sea.

As well as sea-views there are options slightly further afield, should you choose to enhance your Santo Tomas holidays with a little sight-seeing. There are the caves at Cova des Coloms and the atmospheric and pretty little town of Es Mijorn Gran is worth a visit for its caf├ęs and art gallery. And you might choose to take a trip to the summit of Monte Torro in order to see beautiful Menorca from the island’s highest peak.
