With a lot of car parking nearby, the pretty little beach at Punta Prima has a lovely lot of white sand and clear blue, warm sea. There are sunbeds to hire and strange ice cream cone shaped ashtrays with lids to borrow. There are also public toilets available.
The beach itself is quite small so can get busy. It quietens down late afternoon, however be careful if you decide to arrive then because local jellyfish also visit the beach at that time.
There are rocks to the right and left of the beach which you can walk along and also gain access to the sea. The rocks are quite spiked though, near to the sea so decent shoes would help.
The beach is in Punta Prima, a pretty little tourist place with a row of souvenir shops and restaurants along the front. There is often a local market selling leather items and other souvenirs as well as locals who will braid your hair for you. When we visited there was a cute roundabout for children with horses made of bike tyres and little hanging seats for babies. The roundabout was powered by a lady pedalling a bike to make it go round!
If you follow the road past the shops there is a path at the end which leads you through natural wildlife, past a children’s play area. There is another, larger play area at the back of the main car park.
Visiting the beach with an autistic child?
Beaches can be great sensory experiences for autistic children. This post is part of a series of about the different beaches in Menorca, designed to give you an idea of what to expect when visiting each beach. Hopefully from my descriptions you will be able to work out which beach would best suit your family. Don’t forget to pack plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen and hats!
