That is a real shame, I would love to see those photos from Son Bou, to compare with mine from June.
I didnt get as far as S/T, or Binigaus beach this year, but a few recent photos I have seen of it show a 10M strip of sand in some places. :cry:

Is it just storms and erosion, or is it removal of the sand further out to sea. I wasnt joking when I asked :lol:
I remember what happened to Hallsands & Beesand,s in South Devon near Start Point many years ago.
We went every year for a month to stay with grandma.
The removal of too much gravel from the seabed resulted in Hallsands slipping into the sea one winter.

There is no dredging anywhere off Menorca that I've seen or know about so it must be nature taking back the sand. Some people [GOB in particular http://www.gobmenorca.com/english/e_presen ] say that the Neptune grass the weed you find on the beaches helps protect the beach from the force of the waves and gives stability. But in recent years it has been cleaned up as the season starts.

Next time I'm back in the UK I'll see if I can dig the photos out.

Aye,sure did, caught bus to Sant Tomas - walked over to Son Bou, then to Cala n Porter then to my favourite spot at Calas Coves, got accosted up by a nutty woman from Brighton as I walked the last few Km.

Scared the living daylights out of me she did, looked like Suzies avatar she did, made my excuses & slung my hook :susies:

Spent the rest of the day there, then walked back to the bus stop at the top of the steps.
back to Alaior, then taxi back to the hotel knackered.

Yesterday was a washout, hired a car and toured the island sightseeing.

Left the lovebirds at the hotel :finga: :spazzies:

I wonder if it was the same woman who I met walking from Cala'n Porter to Son Bou?? Very strange woman, lived in Alaior I think, wanted me to show her the way back as she was lost :rolleyes: Saved by the missus she arrived in the car to pick me up just in time.
